Moneo is a new international marketplace for expert freelancers, including blockchain consultants, that manages all payments via bitcoin.
The team guarantees the quality of its freelancers by vetting each applicant against a set of internal industry standards. Freelancers available via Moneo include marketing experts, blockchain consultants and designers. All payments made via the marketplace are completed in bitcoin, allowing both individuals and businesses to save money that would otherwise be paid in banking fees and international exchange rates.
Once a job is posted on the site, freelancers can send a proposal and companies can then negotiate with their preferred consultant. Projects are easily managed via the Moneo site, with clients able to set milestones and freelancers able to track their time. Each bitcoin transaction is secure, and transactions take only minutes to move through the system. Once a freelancer has been paid, he or she can save it to use elsewhere amongst the online bitcoin marketplace or exchange it into a relevant local currency.
Bitcoin and blockchain systems are being used in a wide variety of industries, often in peer-to-peer setups, such as a renewable energy marketplace and a new crowdlending platform. How might local and other governments take advantage of the security options available via blockchain to improve service provision for their communities?
