HelixHills describes itself as a decentralized market of services fueled by smart contracts and tokens on the blockchain. They are looking to migrate the service provider market onto the blockchain while automating algorithms for matching customers with individual service providers, calculate billing times and delivering loans. HelixHills resembles Craigslist on both a local and international scale and with the added capabilities of the blockchain, smart contracts and tokens. The startup prefers to compare itself to UpWork, TaskRabbit, Freelancer and Fiverr. HelixHills, however, is designed to be much more of an on-demand platform that can be used for anything from having a car repaired to receiving advice from locals while traveling, not to mention peer-to-peer lending capabilities.
The project is targeting both individuals who are seeking to order a particular service and professionals who are providing one, the latter of whom generates a token-fueled income in the process. HelixHill wants to provide individuals who are masters at a particular skill the opportunity to increase their income on the company’s platform. Participants in the project can serve as either the purchaser or provider of a service, all of which is designed to bolster the value of the HILL tokens.
HelixHills likens the process of engaging a professional on its blockchain-powered platform to buying ice cream or “a chocolate bar in a supermarket.” Services range from on-demand advice to professional skills, all of which is paid for with HILL tokens. Service providers can then either sell their HILL tokens on the HelixHills platform or on an exchange, where they can convert the token into another currency.
To start, users register on the platform. In doing so, users launch a smart contract with basic terms and become participants in the HelixHills ecosystem. Upon acquiring HILL tokens, users can then direct those coins toward services on the platform. A customer in need of a service publishes the details surrounding their job online, while a service provider does the same. The HelixHills search function connects the two relevant parties, and the customer and executor acquaint themselves with one another. If they choose to work with each other, they negotiate terms and sign any necessary agreements. At the end of the process, each party can publish feedback on one another.
HelixHills is an online management solution fueled by the blockchain. Among the features includes a billing and cost calculation tool for contracts that are established via video or audio calls. HelixHills also boasts a loan feature for users who have proven to be reliable. Their algorithm-powered automation process gives customers the ability to search and select service providers, and geolocation data is provided for local jobs. The HelixHills process is fueled by smart contracts, which is where data is verified, payments are secured and agreements are executed.
HelixHills is targeting both the consumer and the individual service provider across many areas of expertise. In its marketing material, HelixHills points to freelancers, maintenance professionals, “millions of bloggers, leading specialized channels and sites, forums, consultants, trainers, coaches, versatile professionals [and] specialists all over the world.”
