Gigtricks.io ICO Overview
The following project is doing an ICO to fund the development of a new ecosystem that enables employers and employees to collaborate through a new system of freelancers using transparent, smart contracts on a blockchain. On a global scale, entrepreneurs get the opportunity to receive assistance for projects requiring additional labor.
The platform is called GigTricks and serves as the mechanism that brings together the world at a professional place where trade in services occurs. Freelancers have their profile stored the blockchain where the skills and experience are displayed in a transparent way where the attributes are verified. Freelancers are also exposed to all types of jobs they did not know because their skills could be used in the following fields. If you have the knowledge to write articles, design, code and more, there are huge markets that can utilize your expertise accurately.
Gigtricks vs. traditional freelance platforms
The price of services on the freelance market has recently increased a lot in price since there in most cases are more intermediaries that work for recruitment and centralized hosting of freelance markets. With GigTricks, all trade is transparent, and there is no one between the buyer and seller who is responsible for the exchange of service happens. There is also going to be released a device that allows you to complete assignments without being connected to a wireless network. Within the ecosystem, all skills will be verified and show your score in the selected field.
The project has already released a working prototype, you can test it out for yourself here.
Main components in the ecosystem
- GigTricks PRO – Blockchain based resume portal where workers have to get their skills verified before attributing them to their profile.

- GigTricks Social – Social platform where users can earn tokens by participating and contributing to the community.

Finally, there is a maximum of 350 million tokens that are for sale. 1 token equals a quarter of a dollar in the main ICO price, while early investors have had the chance to grab tokens with up to 75% discount.
