About being a gig provider working from home with web3 solutions powered by Doconchain
A guest article by Hiten Bhatt
“distributed”, “permissionless”, “verifiable”, “robust”, “trustless”, “self-governing” — these are a few buzz words that describe web3. The web we see today is so much different than what it was just ten years back. The web has evolved, and more importantly it is changing rapidly. The main fundamental difference between web2 and web3 tech is ‘decentralization’.
In today’s changing global dynamics, Doconchain Network and Doktok (DOK) token promise to change the way freelancers & gig creators create and sell content in the new age of web3. In this article, I will lay out how Doconchain is revolutionizing the Gig market and how the “web” we all know, has evolved, where it is going, and why all this matters in today’s new age of pandemics and work-from-home culture.
Imagine you are a graphics designer, content writer, 3D visualizer, fashion designer, interior designer, architect, or a web designer and today you wanted, or were compelled, to work from home as a freelancer. You would want to offer your design and other services online on the web but you are forced to fork out 20% to 25% as fees to a few handful of centralized “online freelancing marketplaces”. Not to mention the KYC, banking regulations, various formalities and ridiculous monthly / annual subscription fees to boot. How is the poor gig artist going to survive? Well, don’t fret because Doconchain promises to fundamentally bring change and freedom to freelancers life with their ‘DOC Gig’ platform that allows independent freelancers and gig creators to offer services and original works while getting 95% of the proceeds. That’s right! A fraction of the fees you are paying at the moment along with access to underprivileged artists who don’t have banking and other facilities.
The web is an unfinished project, web3 is the next major iteration of the Internet and Doconchain is the next major iteration of the Gig economy. This is the future in which users take back control from the centralized corporations that currently dominate the space. Today most-used conventional online gig platforms are controlled by only a handful of powerful companies, which profit from the content users create. In stark contrast to current centralized gig marketplaces, Doconchain promises to be a decentralized network for entrepreneurs, creators, artists and freelancers which enables them to boost their business by using collaborative solutions that take advantage of blockchain technology. DOC Paperless solutions allow you to prepare, manage, sign and share tamper-proof digital documents, contracts and agreements and DOC Copyright NFTs solutions allow you to register and timestamp original work with evidence, manage, monetize licenses, transfer ownership and tokenize copyright NFTs. DOC Gig will provide freelancers with secure tools to sell their services while benefiting from the token economy.
Companies like Paypal have created billions of dollars of value in enabling electronic payments. The current system is overly complex and still not able to tap true international interoperability between various parties. Doconchain promises in a big (or should I say gig) way to change all of this. DOK tokens also promise to introduce a native payment layer that is completely borderless and frictionless.
If history has taught us anything, it is that these fundamental changes will matter a lot in the long run… and it seems Doconchain is going to write a new chapter in the freelancing gig space!
