Project Details: Paytron
This An employee management and payment platform that simplifies the process of payment and makes it more transparent
Aim of the platform
The aim of Paytron is to leverage web3 and blockchain technology to provide traditional services that are available in traditional account management platforms but on a more transparent and trustworthy platform
Thereby creating an incentive for the adoption of Tron blockchain and web3 in general
Dependence on regular banking system
Platforms been used by businesses worldwide for the management of salaries and wages are mostly if not all dependent on the regular banking system of the host country which has its fair share of issues which include but are not limited to
- Lack of transparency
- High transaction fees
- Slow transaction times
- Single point of failure issues
Using the traditional means of payroll management it is very possible for a company to withhold the payment of a staff member with impunity and this could be due to several reasons such as error in payroll processing ,etc.
Solutions offered by Paytron
With the platform been deployed on the blockchain a lot of the issues encountered using traditional banking means are eliminated in the following ways
- More transparency with open ledgers on the blockchain
- It is highly impossible for any single point of failure in the system to cause a general failure of the whole blockchain
- Transaction fees are relatively cheaper
The platform offers both the users and companies the ability to request payment when the set date has been reached preventing payroll withholding.
Technical explanation of working process
After creating any of the 2types of accounts
As a company they are able to add an employee buy providing details of the employee
While providing these details the date of the next pay the amount to be paid and start date
All these details are then pushed to the smart contract which then subscribes the new employee and prevents payment until the set date

- Deploying of web platform
- testing and debugging of web platform
A platform leveraging web3 and blockchain technology to manage employee information with smart contracts incoporated to automate the payroll whilst providing high
degree of transparency and accountability.
From my time as an intern in the engineering industry working in a company that has only 4+ years in the Power contracting and service industry. I observed the
growing need for small scale or upcoming companies to be able to manage their employees and provide salary or wage payments on-time. The company I interned in was
able to source out a software that allowed for efficient payroll management but at a very high cost. The Idea of paytron was to provide these services
on far cheaper alternative by applying blockchain technology which is generally known to be more transparent and efficient.
Whats next for paytron
In the coming future paytron aims to improve interactivity betweemn employers and their employees by providing a chat or messanger application that would allow
for easier communication between the 2 parties. Integration of features that provide e-commerce solutions to handling movement and management of funds.
