GigTricks is a freelance and on demand marketplace that is looking to wipe out economic recessions in economies around the world. They’re a gig-economy play specializing in what they dub “the world’s first integrated 360-degrees freelance and on-demand ecosytem.”
The GigTricks team is looking to capitalize on what they say is a rising unemployment rate coupled with increasing demand for e-commerce opportunities surrounding digital services.
GigTricks evisions a world in which freelancers can find opportunities and work from a flexible environment while making money that they can spend, thereby bolstering the economy and combatting a recession.
Freelancers list their qualifications in an attempt to gain the attention of an employer. Small- and medium-sized businesses identify and engage talent for a project, such as designing a logo, across profiles that have been verified by users.
For freelancers, the features include having the flexibility to work from home while earning income. For small and medium sized businesses, there is the opportunity to engage top-notch talent without the added expense of having to hire full-time employees and provide a benefits package.
GigTricks will use the Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts to ensure that freelancers remain committed to projects. A ratings system will give clients/employers and freelancers the ability to provide feedback on their experience with the other party. Users can also earn rewards that are paid in GBTC tokens, which fuel the ecosystem, for engaging with content, such as videos, on the platform on a social platform. The company also plans to launch a point-of-sale device, among other features.
Entrepreneurs and the freelance workforce. GigTricks is looking to match 81 million freelancers around the world with tens of millions of enterpreneurs in the e-commerce space.
