Describe your ICO project in one paragraph: The freelance and on-demand economy are lacking the principle standards to form a trusting business relationship between clients and freelancers. To solve this problem, GigTricks has built a blockchain-based ecosystem to increase transparency, trust, and reliability among the platform participants. Every action including review and skill ratings will be verified within the immutable blockchain. As such, nothing can be forged within the ecosystem. The GigTricks objective is to create the world’s first 360° freelance and on-demand ecosystem which will be trusted by a community of millions. Ultimately, we’ve built the GigTricks platform to help fight global recession by creating unlimited opportunities for talented individuals so that they can simply find the gigs, work from home, generate income and spend on their consumer needs resulting a true economic growth.

How is your project different than other ICOs announced recently?

Three reasons which are as follows:

1) Nobody think how to acquire unlimited customers with zero dollars by concept.

2) The integration elements across multiple freelancing related platforms were missing which we are doing for the first time all verified under the blockchain.

3) The concept of “leverage” is our true USP where now freelancers and entrepreneurs will have maximum leverage because of complete integrated platforms all under the blockchain

Is your token an utility token? What is its utility?
