Undoubtedly, freelancing has come to stay in the U.S. This article explores how popular freelance platforms like Upwork and Fiverr handle the influx of workers and their problems and how Uwerx will solve them.

Freelancers have increased in the United States since the pandemic hit, and most Americans have found it a reliable option compared to conventional work. Most US companies have found integrated freelancers into their work teams, claiming they give their business enterprise more agility to maneuver uncertain times.

Similarly, popular freelancing platforms have accommodated them in their search by providing the best freelancers, a conducive work environment, and a suitable payment structure. One platform making waves prelaunch is Uwerx; experts have praised it as the future of freelancing.

Upwork: The Haven For Independent Contractors

Upwork has created a platform for Americans willing to work anywhere without constraints. For instance, homemakers, invalids, and so on make extra income just from the comfort of their homes.

Although Upwork boasts a very extensive clientele, it cannot handle such large numbers. It experiences copyright infringement from other freelancers and companies, identity theft, and full-blown fraud prevalent on the platform. Moreover, Upwork charges a whooping 20% transaction fee on all transactions.

Fiverr: The Popular Option For Online Professionals

Fiverr connects clients with suitable professionals willing to work. Fiverr has been a reliable alternative to Upwork over the years. The increase in freelancers since the pandemic hit has also increased revenue for the platform. It retains 20% of all transactions made.

However, like Upwork, Fiverr struggles with fraud and increased copyright infringement cases. It does not have reliable customer service to handle the client and freelancer’s needs. Furthermore, with the amount Fiverr charges per transaction, freelancers must set their price points higher than usual.

Uwerx (WERX): The Next Step in Freelancing Evolution

With the recurring fraud issues in the freelancing industry, no end was in sight. A group of intellectuals decided to come together to create a platform that would be an improvement from the old media. From their minds came the idea now called Uwerx. Uwerx is still developing, but experts believe it will solve the issues prevalent in old freelancing platforms.

Uwerx will be built on a decentralized platform similar to the polygon network used by cryptocurrencies. This will eliminate the need for a middleman, foster good client and freelancer relationships, and increase security and accountability. Also, unlike Fiverr and Upwork, which charge 20%, Uwerx will charge just 1%.

The Way Forward

Freelancing has seen an upward movement in revenue, likely to become the US majority workforce by 2027. As the demand increases, the platform must also work to provide excellent services for both parties.

Upwork and Fiverr have been doing a great job so far, but they aren’t without fault, and there is a need to incorporate modern technology into the freelancing industry as other industries have. Uwerx will potentially do that for the freelancing world; it is built to be client and freelancer-centric.

Interestingly, the Uwerx team is set to renounce contract ownership as soon as taxes are zero. More importantly, your token could never be safer, thanks to the certification from the InterFi network and a Solidproof passing not one, but two audits.

Also, Uwerx is making moves in the crypto space with their token, it is currently on presale for $0.0225 per token, and it is sure not to remain that way for long. After the presale, it could go on a 25-year liquidity lock for all tokens.
