The Financial Future Your Freelance Work, With New Technologies Such As Blockchain

To date, there are a handful of companies that are already using blockchain technology to help make the future of work the best it can possibly be.

The source code. Check out the details.

Getting jobs done quickly without the need to hire a full-time employee is advantageous to companies, both from a financial perspective and in terms of legal liability. Additionally, with the rise in self-employment and the number of small to medium-sized businesses, many entrepreneurs simply lack the budget necessary to hire a skilled developer, marketer or writer on a full-time basis, making freelancers the only viable option to keep them competitive.

These freelancing platforms allow for employers to gain access to thousands of freelancers in nearly any industry. From having a quick and seamless payment system to the transparency of a freelancer’s rates to having access to their work history and reviews, there are a number of benefits to these online marketplaces relative to hiring a freelancer outside of such a curated platform.
