Disrupting the Disruptors - How LaborCrypto will Empower Freelancers Around the Globe to Finally Be Free.
In the last several year's blockchain technology, and the immutable digital ledger system it offers, has caused massive disruption in the financial industry and beyond. At the same time, there has been a virtual explosion of online freelancing sites, giving millions of freelancers across the globe access to billions of customers, and creating a vast and growing new economy, the Gig Economy.
Blockchain technology started with Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency, but was quickly proven so valuable as a digital ledger that it was soon adopted to many other industries, including pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, shipping and so forth. Infallible and immutable, blockchains are the perfect ledger system.
Freelance platforms, including UpWork, Freelancer, Fiverr, Etsy, RedBubble and more, tapped into the communication power of the world wide web and the convenience of mobile devices, connecting sellers with buyers worldwide. Unlike blockchain technology, however, freelance websites are far from perfect.
The Problem(s) With Freelance Websites
If you ask the average freelancer, working on one of the various platforms, what they perceive as the biggest flaws of said platforms, they will usually refer to 5 major problem areas that cause them to suffer financially, as well as causing negative consumer responses.
Problem #1- High Service Costs and Fees
On average, freelance platforms take 22% of the selling price of every Gig sold. On Fiverr, for example, they take 20%, or 1 out of every 5 dollars the freelancer (the ‘seller’) earns. Many of these platforms also charge the customer (the ‘buyer’) a fee to use the platform (or ‘ecosystem’). Some ecosystems even take a fee when a seller gets paid a ‘tip’, a practice that’s illegal in the United States and other countries.
Problem #2 - Delays Getting Paid
If high fees weren’t bad enough, freelance platforms also force sellers to wait for their earnings, sometimes up to 2 weeks. These delays are mainly caused by the traditional financial system, although some platforms also tack-on extra waiting time, creating extra financial stress for millions of freelancers.
Problem #3 - Inflexible User Experience & Processes
Here’s a problem area for both buyers and sellers. For sellers, the inflexible sales processes used by virtually every freelance economy force them to waste hours of valuable time every day. These same processes waste the time and energy of the buyers as well, who are forced to rely on outdated review systems to evaluate sellers and their respective offers.
Problem #4 - Lack of Banking Access
Although a problem not suffered by all sellers, roughly 40% of the freelance community has either little or no banking access, making it much more difficult, and costly, to receive their hard-earned income.
Problem #5 - Loyalty Issues
Possibly the biggest problem freelancers face with all ecosystems is this; inequity between the platform and the creators. The single reason that freelance platforms exist is due to buyers and sellers, but neither are given financial thanks for this fact, causing many to come and go far too frequently.

What is LaborCrypto?
Gig Economy Experience + Blockchain Computing Decentralization LaborCrypto™ is a light touch administrator in a people-powered freelance work ecosystem. Our algorithms match users with other users to hire and promote freelance work. LaborCrypto is the next iteration of ChoreRelief™, a platform that streamlined gig economy match-making. LaborCrypto is using that experience and applying the power of blockchain smart contracts to decentralize corporate power structures and give more economic power to the freelance workers and those who hire them.
We, at LaborCrypto, think differently and believe in challenging the status quo and giving power to freelance workers. And the way we do that, by connecting people from all over the world regardless of having a banking system or not and allowing the freelancers to keep all of their earning and getting it immediately. We believe in sacrificing the numbers to save the people, and the way we are doing that, by sharing half of our ads and fee collected revenue with our users.
WHAT VALUES DO WE HOLD?
LaborCrypto embraces the responsibility of being a platform where providers and consumers of freelance services thrive together because they share similar values and are both stakeholders in the ecosystem. LaborCrypto™ strives to take out the costly middle-men and rent-seekers that inhabit much of the gig economy to allow consumers and freelance workers to interact directly, benefitting from that interaction and the overall value of the platform.
We believe that each one of us gains real control over our lives when: • As a Consumer, you decide that hiring help would be a better use of your resources; • As a Freelancer, you go out on your own to be your own boss, expand your horizons, and test your limits; • As a Stakeholder (only available to Consumers and Freelancers), you want to be a part of something that will make the world a better place and increase how much money you make by working through the platform.
We at LaborCrypto like to observe. We observe how people work together, how they source services and how they provide them. Mid-large size companies prefer working with agencies that act as a one-stop shop for services, such as seen in digital agencies (offering web development services along with marketing services & sometimes more). With small startups, we observe that they use freelancing platforms to perform small tasks for them to avoid the large commitment of going with a formal agency. There is a new middle ground, which involves unofficial agencies, where one freelancer may act as the main account manager and involve other freelancers in completing parts of the larger service offering. Freelancers are all about contacts. They want good reviews, repeat business and referrals. They also build out their own network of experts that offer complementary services that they do not. LaborCrypto will empower this freelance behavior by allowing one freelance resource to consolidate other resources and build a team to provide a slew of services. This sort of “teaming” will provide a freelancer with a competitive edge by being able to offer a broader array of services. By encouraging competition like this, we also encourage community and collaboration.
