The advancement of internet has brought a new dimension to how services are being rendered globally. Consequently, there has been a general surge in the number of freelancers across the globe, professionals often prefer to remain independent while offering their services for limited time. Being a freelancer myself, I can relate with the numerous challenges faced by everyday freelancer.

Most notable among this challenge is the role third parties organisation ( middlemen) play in the scheme of things. These third-parties organisation includes outsourcing firms, freelancing websites such as Fivver, Upwork etc who charges high commission on every gig ( a piece of work) completed by a freelancer while job outsourcing firms are equally guilty of poor remuneration and short-changing of employees.

Furthermore, there are presently very limited opportunities for freelancers to improve on their skillset and gained more knowledge. Outsourcing firms are established solely for maximizing profit and does not care about providing opportunities for freelancers to get requisite training and development. As a result of this, most freelancers are in a limbo as to how or where to access quality education for their professional development.

It is based on the foregoing, that a team of experts with requisite knowledge of blockchain technology and job outsourcing industry came up with an innovative project powered by the blockchain to proffer solutions to the numerous challenges bedevilling facing freelancers. Blockchain is the underlying technology behind bitcoin and other similar cryptocurrencies. Gentlemen, permit me to introduce UMKA project to you.
