Amsterdam November 16, 2021– FYD is set to disrupt the gig economy with the BETA release of FYDme, a platform to cater the gig economy, and introduce newcomers into crypto by utilizing FYDcoin as the native currency for the platform.
FYDme is a fee-less alternative to Fiverr, or Upwork powered by blockchain and utilizing its native cryptocurrency FYDcoin. Created and run by FYD, a decentralized community of freelancers, marketeers, and online content creators.
In the last decade, the gig economy has been a growing source of income, particularly for Millennials and Generation Z. According to Statista, more than half of Generation Z is actively engaged in the gig economy, working on projects through centralized platforms.
The gig economy is expected to generate more than $445.2 billion by 2023 and is growing three times faster than the traditional workforce. Furthermore, according to Deloitte, millennials and Gen Z will account for 75% of the workforce by 2025, indicating the limitless opportunities associated with the gig economy.
The Future of The Gig Economy
Since the introduction of blockchain technology in 2009, there has been one central word on the lips of blockchain enthusiasts who see the technology as the future of the world, and that is “Decentralization.” Decentralization eliminates the need for third-party interference/intermediaries, which is common in today’s gig economy.
The leading platforms, such as Fiverr and Upwork, are highly centralised and act as intermediaries in the gig economy, charging content creators and freelancers fees of up to 20%. FYDme is a decentralized ecosystem developed by FYD that eliminates the need for centralized third-party platforms, allowing freelancers to work with clients seamlessly and without incurring unnecessary fees.
FYDme is FYD’s first use-case, a platform similar to Fiverr where freelancers can get gigs and be paid in FYDcoin, FYD’s native cryptocurrency. It connects freelancers and clients at little to no cost by utilising FYDcoin and the FYD blockchain; transaction fees on FYD are as low as a fraction of a penny. FYDme also offers its users a staking feature, which allows content creators to stake their earnings as another form of passive income stream, with staking rewards paid out daily.
FYDme allows users to create a FYDcoin wallet with only a google account, or working email address.This can be done on a mobile phone, tablet or Desktop computer. After a one click sign up, users can send- and receive FYDcoin to from their personal wallet.
FYDme‘s user experience was designed to be appealing and convenient, as users can sign up with just their email address and receive FYDcoin instead of a lengthy generated address. FYDme is a cryptocurrency and blockchain technology hybrid that provides a decentralized solution for the gig economy. The public BETA release of FYDme is scheduled for November 30th.
FYD and FYDcoin
FYD has been around for almost 2.5 years now and has a growing community of people that are working towards the same goal. To create a decentralized and fair ecosystem for freelancers. The currency FYDcoin has been available on the exchanges from the beginning and has seen growth year over year.
Even with this recent growth, the total market cap of all circulating FYDcoins is still only $4.4 million USD. FYDcoin has its own blockchain and is not created on another blockchain such as Ethereum as a token.
As the project is driven by its community of freelancers, the team behind FYD is ever growing. From freelancer writers such as myself, to front-end developers, to video animators, to back-end developers and marketeers. There is no central point of authority and the entire community contributes what they can to realize this decentralized ecosystem.
The project is self-funding through a community treasury which is built up by 10% of each block reward. without a board of directors, central ownership, or large VC funding demanding the direction the project is as flexible as a startup.
