Breakthrough technology for the freelance marketplace, blockchain employs a decentralized platform to enable an emphasis on quality interactions, efficiency, unbiased and decentralized dispute resolution, and enhanced communication.

“The global freelance market is exploding as more individuals seek to share their skills online and more companies take advantage of this skilled labor, representing a significant challenge and opportunity. Our innovative platform is designed to make freelancing scalable across the globe while still supporting the highest quality in work, communication and fund transfer,” said Sunkanmi Ola, Hirefreehands co-founder and CEO. “Our aim is to deliver affordable world-class quality.”

Hirefreehands uses a Price Regulation Algorithm to automatically determine fair prices for jobs, eliminating the need for negotiation and protecting both clients and freelancers from unfair prices. The decentralized platform uses a jury system for both skill verification and dispute resolution. Further, the KYC system uses blockchain for identity recognition. The expected growth in global GDP from online freelance platforms is $2.75 trillion by the year 2025, according to a McKinsey Global Institute Report.

“All of this enhanced technology serves to simplify the process of finding a freelancer or performing freelance work,” Ola added. “This is our vision for the workforce of the future.”
