There’s a new freelancing platform called Freelance for Coins that provides users with the ability to publish offers and bids for cryptocurrencies. In order to help facilitate deals between users, the service not only allows people to publish their bids and offers, but also provides them with a messenger for chatting. It also enables crypto invoices for coins like BTC, BCH, ETH, XMR, and a few stablecoins.
Freelance for Coins Offers a Free Service for Professionals Interested in Crypto Payments
Cryptocurrencies are a great way for freelancers to get paid online because people can get paid immediately, there are no chargebacks, and the funds can be sent in a permissionless manner. A new service called Freelance for Coins aims to promote the use of digital assets and freelance work by enabling users to place offers and bids for freelance services. The platform has been operating for about a week now.
“I am proud to introduce you to our new project,” explained the founder of Freelance for Coins during the launch. “All freelance work for cryptocurrencies — Currently there are no platform fees — Guaranteed payment for freelancers.”
The founder added:
Freelance for Coins aims to help solve problems skilled workers face in order to create a more efficient global job market, reducing the friction experienced in the present-day freelancing process.
Invoices for 12 Cryptocurrencies
Signing up for the service is intuitive and only requires an email address and password. At the moment there are a bunch of offers from freelancers on the main feed offering services for things like Python development, writing, website creation, social media marketing, web scraping services, and translations. Offers show a description of the service offered and a starting price. Below the description, there is a “buy this offer” button which leads to a message area where users can conduct a deal in a peer-to-peer fashion. After the two parties reach an agreed price, an invoice can be created in the message center for cryptocurrencies BTC, TUSD, ETH, BCH, EOS, LTC, USDC, USDT, XLM, TRX, DASH, and XMR.
Freelance for Coins also has a roadmap, and during its first week, the developer integrated the following features: the ability to publish and edit projects, bidding for projects, bidding for offers, chat services for offers and bids, and crypto invoices. The project’s founder also plans to add a rating and review system, anonymous feedback, social profile integration (Linkedin, Github, Reddit, etc.), and automatic detection of transactions.
Despite the Bear Market, Freelancers Are Offering Services for Crypto
“We believe that every freelancer in the future will have had at least one project done for crypto and every year cryptocurrency adoption grows with no stopping in sight,” explains a Freelance for Coins blog post. “We plan to take it slowly and attract users and earn their trust over time, adding new features and making this site more and more usable every day.”
For now, the service is free but the Freelance for Coins roadmap says that it may add an escrow service for 1-2% commission but the startup recommends using pre-payment and milestone payments for now. This week the platform’s developer also added categories for offers so people can filter for kinds of services they are looking for. The founder of the freelance application updated the community on Feb. 27 and the service has managed to capture a slew of freelancers.
“Despite the bear market in crypto, many people are very willing to offer their services for crypto,” the founder detailed.
