Modern times like today, many people work from home to get money. They are freelancers who can freely choose jobs according to their skills with anyone. Freelancers are free to choose with whom they work, in one period or one project. The rapid development of information and global communication makes it easier for freelancers to choose jobs from anywhere, without territorial restrictions.
The development of the freelance market creates a good and very potential economy. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 15 million people in the U.S. were self-employed in 2015 and will grow steadily until 2020. Other sources even say that 60 million Americans, to choose self-employment – freelancing. This proves that the freelance market continues to grow in the next few years.
But the freelance market still has several problems, such as; high fees, data security, third parties, etc. This makes it difficult for the freelance market to grow and reach more people. For example, freelancer.com charges up to 40% in transaction fees. This clearly does not benefit the user.
What is Pixby?
Pixby is a platform that focuses on providing blockchain-based freelance marketplaces. Through Pixby people can display their skills and abilities.
