HotSkills by Vad - Decentralized freelance platform

Project Name: HotSkills (formerly MeDo)

Project Track: Web3

Team Name: Vad

Team Member(s): Vad - I’m working solo on the project

DevPost URL: HotSkills (formerly MeDo) | Devpost

Project Goal:

  1. Promote mass adoption by attracting freelancers to the crypto industry. As per Verified Market Research, the freelance market size was valued at USD 3.8 billion in 2020. Growing at a CAGR of 15.02%, it is expected to grow to over USD 12 billion by 2028.
  2. To attract freelancers into crypto I’m going to create the best crypto freelancing platform guaranteeing payments by smart contracts, providing security and an integrated payment system that can decrease delays and minimize fees.

Project Info: The platform is a mix of popular web2 freelance platforms like UpWork and Fiverr. It allows users to earn crypto by executing paid tasks added by others or by promoting their own services. Two types of tasks are currently available: First Come First Serve - the first user who applied will be set as an assignee, Selected by Author - the task author can select an executor from the candidate list e.g. by their ratings or based on their profile info. Third task type such as escrow contract - TBD. The task author can request changes if they are unsatisfied with the result or open a dispute for third-party result verification - TBD.
Users can request payment after the result is submitted if the task author didn’t request changes and didn’t complete the task within 10 days.
Users can create their profiles to provide more info for customers.
Users can add, pause/resume, or delete their services. Others can request those services.

Project Test Instructions: All you need to test the HotSkills dapp is to switch your TronLink wallet to Nile testnet and connect the wallet to the website. You will need some test TRX for testing. You can get 2000 test coins here.

Enjoy your testing! :wink:
