Our mission here at WORX is to promote the freelance marketplace and provide the tools necessary for freelance workers to be successful. We will do this by providing a marketplace that will allow freelancers and customers to connect either through a customer driven bidding process or a freelancer driven storefront.
More and more of the international work force is transitioning from traditional employment systems to working independently for themselves as freelancers. Making this transition brings with it hurdles that especially newcomers can rarely overcome on their own. These hurdles include among others customer acquisition, marketing and organizational costs. Trust and arbitration play an important role in this space and are hard to organize for individuals.
The WORX platform will address all these issues and give a valuable tool to both parties: those that are looking for freelancers, and freelancers that are looking for work. The safe and transparent storage of transactions on the blockchain, our arbitration system and the general features of the platform to help both parties to find each other will ensure a maximum cost to advantage ratio in a secure environment.
WORX consists of two major parts: the WORX freelance platform and the WORX blockchain. The latter is our own payment method and is similar to other cryptocurrencies. It can be traded on popular exchanges for other currencies and will be the first payment option on our WORX platform. All transactions are stored immutably on the blockchain and can be viewed by all parties.
