There is also Microlancer Services, which is where talent can list service offerings and their price, along the same lines as a Fiverr.
So rather than the situation where an Asker ("Client") lists a gig, they can instead hire talent from the Microlancer Services. Fees are identical -- 2% for escrow (split 50/50: 1% added to amount the asker pays, and 1% subtracted from the amount paid the tasker).
This is all using your same wallet and same account, so it's like a No-KYC Upwork and No-KYC Fiverr combined into one, beautiful, LN-enabled, ultra-low fee microtask marvel!!!
There was an earlier article on Microlancer on BitcoinNews.com and that was posted, here on SN, as well:
The Future of Freelancing: Lightning-Based Microlancer is Growing | BitcoinNews.com
And there was this other post, here on SN, by me:
Yes, you can find a Virtual Assistant to work a period of time as short as just one hour, ... on @microlancer
Plus another post, here on SN, that was even earlier:
Microlancer.io - KYC-free Bitcoin Lightning freelance website for jobs, gigs and microtasks
My favorite two things about Microlancer:
KYC-free!!! Neither tasker nor asker provide identity, beyond an e-mail address (which can be from an anonymous e-mail provider, such as Proton mail). Optionally, you can have notifications sent also to your Telegram account, but the Microlancer doesn't see the phone number tied to your Telegram account. This means everyone from everywhere has equal access to the tasks offered!
Fees of just 2%, when using escrow (1% paid by Asker, and 1% taken from Tasker). Otherwise, there is no fee if not using escrow:
Compare that to Upwork:
Combine those two, $4,200 - $3,550 means Upwork is receiving 18.3% in fees (in this example) above the net amount ($3,550) paid to the freelancer. Even with "eligible" clients (client is in the U.S. and paying with ACH bank transfer), the "reduced" fee is 16.1% (in this example).
This makes me think of patreon where there is sales tax on the donation. 25% in my case. Then the receiver has to pay income tax which can be 40% or more so at the end of the day a minority of the money ends up with the person it was going to. Sad.
