Hireling Freelancing Platform
While freelance projects are a flexible way to earn income based on time, workload and skillset, there's no secure method to ensure payment after sending your work off to the client. Enter Ethereum blockchain because it's a secure peer-to-peer methodology for exacting payments and assets.
Reduce anxieties within the freelancing process for both the creator and the client by creating a servicing app for freelancers based in the Ethereum blockchain called Hireling. This app reduces stressors that freelancing brings, for both the freelancer and the client.

Once project conditions are met, both assets and money are automatically exchanged thanks to Smart Contracts.
Information is immutable. This means it's pretty darn difficult to hack and falsely represent information due to its decentralization. Servers around the world are constantly validating the ledger to ensure the information is accurate with each other.
With blockchain at its foundation, Hireling ensures freelancers always have ownership over their work. It's written in this magical record-keeper humans can't change.
Ethereum smart contracts?
Your documents are encrypted on a ledger meaning no one can say they "lost" it. They're also backed up many times over.
The system works on the If-Then premise and is witnessed by hundreds of people, so you can expect a faultless delivery.
Ethereum is the most advanced code for processing smart contracts.
How Hireling works
If freelancer doesn't finish project by due date and approve release of assets to client, a refund is automatically given back to the client.
Both the freelancer and client can approve or deny the work. Once both sides approve, the payment held in escrow will automatically be funded to the freelancer.
No more worries on getting paid for your work or making sure you get your assets. This can only be done through the use of blockchain technology.

The primary user is the freelancer. These users are actively looking for a side hustle to afford their lifestyle. They want to improve their professional skill set.
The secondary user is the client. These users may have a company in its infancy and/or limited funding. They want the best bang for their buck, and are open to working with less-experienced freelancers.
It would also be cool to add in SMS updates whenever the freelancer and client updates a project or marked a project complete.
