B-UMBRELLA offers an online cross-platform decentralized application through which people who need protection and various security providers will be able to find each other in order to sign safeguarding agreements without having to correspond to any official authorization and involving any intermediaries.
B-UMBRELLA intends to reduce the global unemployment by representing new blockchain-based opportunities for those social strata whose environment, status or circumstances currently keep them out of official employment for whatever reason.
B-UMBRELLA provides a new level of accessibility to various security services for everyone in the world who needs protection being at the same time unable to contract ordinary security providers.

B-UMBRELLA project aims at creating a decentralized application (DApp) integrated with the Pangea blockchain-based self-governance platform.
The application will provide the peer-to-peer cashless transactions based on the pre-designed smart contracts that will regulate relations between the clients and executors determining the terms and conditions at which the safeguarding agreements are considered satisfactorily completed.
The B-UMBRELLA DApp imposes no special requirements on both the clients and executors allowing everyone who is confident in his/her safeguarding skills to register at the relevant section of the DApp for delivering various security services as an executor.
Both the functionality of the DApp and the relations between the clients and executors will rely on the concepts of self-governance and the genuine freedom of choice
Numerous advantages over the ordinary security service providers are represented by the unique capabilities of the B-Umbrella platform
Full anonymity when safeguarding agreements are signed in a peer-to-peer mode within blockchain
Secure invoicing / rewarding when safeguarding agreements are executed automatically on achievingspecific conditions predefined by code of corresponding smart contracts
Spatial irrelevance when both clients and executors can make agreement with no regard to their geographical location or official jurisdiction
Self-governance when security services are provided with no regard to the compulsory licensing, certification, and to any other official or governmental authorization
Self-promotion opportunities provided by the informal structure of executors’ profiles where everyone can indicate everythin gworth mentioning with regard to the business
