Network

What is Works?

Works is Asia-first blockchain web 3.0 talent marketplace, equipped with innovative tech. We offer the best of both worlds - our clients and our talents. With less than a 48-hour turnaround, businesses can connect to the top 3% of pre-vetted world-class talents. We use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in our platform to match remote talents with clients and bridge language barriers between Asian countries.

What is Works built on?

Works is built on the Solana blockchain.

Why is Works built on blockchain?

Works employs blockchain technology to transparently distribute dividends based on its annual profits (5% to 20%) to our community members who contribute to its growth. By incentivising user contributions (such as referring client or talent, completing projects on 5 stars rating, creating awareness on social media), Works look to align long-term interest and benefits with the people who help in building it, instead of adopting a centralised platform which extracts disproportionate value in the form of high fees from its freelancers.

This model helps Works to achieve rapid growth.

How is the commission charged to the users?

Clients will be charged a 10% fee for each invoice and the talent gets to keep 100% of their earnings.

Where does the 10% commission fee go?

The 10% service charge which clients pay is used to cover the operational costs of the platform so that fee can always be kept low.

General

How does the blockchain benefit Works users?

Works implemented blockchain technology on the platform to provide a transparent and decentralized work environment. With our native token, WORKS, we redistribute value. It will serve as a motivator for our users, allowing them to take advantage of free or discounted courses as well as other community benefits. This is a win-win situation that motivates users to continue building our network while simultaneously rewarding them, and it will also help Works develop faster.

What sets Works apart from other marketplaces?

The marketplace is decentralized, which makes Works stand out. Other platforms, such as Toptal, Upwork, and others, take 20-40% of what the talent earns on the site, and ownership is concentrated around a small number of people and investors. Works gets 0% of the talent's earnings and is governed by a token governance community. Works can now attract and retain higher-quality employees because of this strategy. Works uses blockchain technology to take out the intermediaries and keep incentives aligned. This significantly lowers employer expenses and raises talent profits, attracting the top people in the world while sharing value more evenly throughout the network's talent.

What types of projects are available on Works?

The talent pool of Works is generally focused on large, complicated technological and design projects involving software, data analytics, UI/UX, and related activities.
