Uniblok : As a Decentralized Marketplace Alternative

Freelancing has become popular nowadays because of its many advantages. Survey results indicate that 48% companies hire freelancers for their requirements. Benefits of freelancing include greater flexibility in work hours and greater control over the amount of compensation one receives.

In the market, there are many platforms that offer freelancers the opportunity to work with them and also act as a mediator in connecting companies (clients) with freelancers (talents). As a freelancer in the process of finding clients and contacting them, one may encounter a number of difficulties. First, you should conduct extensive research in order to identify potential clients who may be looking for your services as a freelancer and even then you cannot be certain that they will respond to your request. In addition to this, the clients are also required to do a great deal of research in order to find the right candidate that meets the requirements of the position, as well as the requirements of the company.

Business and freelancers’ concerns about finding an appropriate marketplace :

Their fees are quite Crushing :

Aside from submitting proposals, other platforms also charge a percentage based on your total billings for each project. Based on your earnings, their service fees range from 5% to 20% (approximately). Every company needs to make money, but for smaller projects, the approximate 20% fee feels like a significant amount. Going for high-paying projects with clients who will be able to provide continuous work makes much more sense.

Requires a significant amount of time and effort :

There is a great deal of time required to use online marketplaces for freelancers and clients. Finding a freelancer and a client that is suitable for both parties( Client and talent ) is not an easy task. There is a considerable amount of time that is wasted in the process.

Contracts with weak terms for clients and talent:

There is a lack of thoroughness in the contract binding the client and the talent before they begin working together. When disputes arise, these problems become even more complex.

Spam Clients/Talent :

There is also the possibility of fraud occurring on these online marketplaces. There is a high probability of fraud occurring in these marketplaces as a result of a lack of security during the signup process. An example would be when a client requests a demo and in the demo, they have the talent perform the work they desire and afterwards, ghost the talent. Furthermore, there are some freelancers who perform lousy work and take full payment. If confronted, they take a considerable amount of time to complete the task, thereby wasting the time of the client.
