Blocklancer is a Distributed Autonomous Job Marketplace (DAJ) operating on the Ethereum Blockchain. Blocklancer is our collaborative vision of an entirely self-regulatory platform for finding clients/projects and ensuring jobs are completed efficiently and fairly. Blocklancer is changing the way freelancing works for both the freelancer and the customer, concentrating on building a trustworthy platform all stakeholders can rely on. Blocklancer does this by minimalizing fees and introducing a decentralized tribunal system to guarantee every dispute case is settled fairly and that no one loses out — we can finally wave goodbye to fraud in freelancing.
User-friendly design is a priority at Blocklancer; as a result, users can find jobs without even acknowledging the existence of the blockchain. You can search for jobs on our job-market platform and build your reputation as a freelancer to garner the attention of customers needing to hire someone with your skillset. Simplicity is a core feature of the Blocklancer platform.
Need a project completing? Simply create a job listing on Blocklancer and wait for freelancers to submit their proposals. Alternatively, you can search through our community-rated freelancers and find one you’d like to contact directly. Either way, hiring through our distributed platform ensures your safety while allowing you take advantage of the zero-fee policy we’re able to offer to employers.
With this project, we tackle several major issues present in the current freelancing world. These problems include: inauthentic reviews, unreliable payments, expensive fees, unfair disputes/fraud and the uncontrollable influence of a central authority.
On Blocklancer, you are only required to pay if you are 100% satisfied that the Freelancer has performed as their proposition entailed. In the case of a dispute, the Tokenholders decide the outcome via a majority consensus. There is no longer any need to lose money due to unilateral decisions made by a centralized authority.
Never depend on a single, centralized authority to settle your disputes again. With the Blocklancer Tokenholder Tribunal, the decision lies in the hands of thousands of Tokenholders, guaranteeing a fair decision. The Tokenholders are incentivized to offer their expertise and fair votes. Only the Tokenholders that voted for the decision that won will be rewarded — this ensures a fair settlement.
Blocklancer fees are just 3% per project! This is several times lower than the leading existing freelancing platforms; freelancing will finally be a lucrative and reliable way to earn money. The entirety of this 3% goes to the Tokenholders that vote competently in the tribunal!
Due to Blocklancer being built on the Ethereum blockchain, job offers cannot be deleted under any circumstances. Political correctness and personal feelings do not play a part in Blocklancer — the blockchain is incorruptible.
The Lancer Token (LNC) is our utility token. Holders of the LNC token can participate in the Tokenholder Tribunal and are rewarded for settling disputes between freelancers and their clients.
The fees earned from completed jobs on the Blocklancer platform will be distributed among Tokenholders who participate in the dispute-resolution process. As the fees are paid in ETH, they remain in ETH when rewarded to the Tokenholders.
Tokenholders have access to premium features on the platform, including a better visibility of job offers and in-depth profile statistics. This provides the Tokenholders with a better overall experience and the ability to work with the best freelancers/clients available.
Each time there is a dispute between a freelancer and a client, the Tokenholder Tribunal will be given a vote to contribute to the decision, ensuring each dispute is settled fairly.
The Tokenholder Tribunal (THT) constitutes the core of the Blocklancer ecosystem. The THT is an incentive system that rewards Tokenholders for participating in the dispute resolution process.
Level-up/progression systems, along with the ability to collect items, is an extremely popular and effective way of providing additional motive in video games, digital platforms and other media. Blocklancer’s THT offers these via an in-build level and badge system.
Tokenholders start with a base level and can reach higher levels by competently resolving disputes.
Because the level and the badges are publicly visible, they serve as a form of social recognition. Tokenholders with high levels and many badges will be perceived as competent.
Tokenholders can unlock badges for certain achievements, e.g. ‘The First Vote’ or ‘Ten-Vote Streak’.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT DURING THE TOKEN SALE! The next step is delivering an awesome product. Here’s what we’re working on right now.
Developing the Smart Contracts for the Blocklancer freelancing platform. The Smart Contracts will be deployed in the main network of Ethereum.
Creating a modern design for the platform.
Setting up a stable infrastructure of Ethereum nodes and servers, ensuring the scalability and stability of the system.
Integrate the THT with the Blocklancer platform so that Tokenholders can start voting on disputes.
Offering RESTfull intefaces so that other systems can interact with the platform.
Building a mobile version of the platform.
No one can whistle a symphony. It takes an orchestra to play it.
