A very decent product with a strong vision in place. I like the look of the white paper, and the team and advisors they have running the project are also very strong

Solid idea - the gig economy is ripe for a marketplace built on Blockhchain and fueled by crypto. Good whitepaper. Team good. Nice to see a good product coming out of UAE.

Bright idea, lots of competitors in the space. Update: I dropped rating temporarily as a data on bounty hunter registrations was not properly secure. The CEO got in touch and they were extremely responsive in sorting out the problem and have publicly informed their bounty hunter team of the issue. A good sign that they will continue to be responsive and effective in fixing up issues as they come about.

Interesting Concept and Vision. Strong team, Advisors and KYC Pass. The market is crowded and will face substantial competition from the traditional players. Good luck team

Stylized working hours that are lifestyle-driven and flexibility of work acceptance and movement are key fundamentals of the emerging economy, and have particular resonance with millennials. Projects that cater to this growing market will by their nature find acceptance from this demographic and this one is no exception. The team and product are top-notch - the product especially has been very comprehensively thought out with many different use-cases and scenarios presented in the white paper. There are quite a few players in the market that are targeting flexible work and it will be interesting to see how the market unfolds.

The role of GigTricks is to establish lines of communication between the freelance community and those that make use of their services. Often, there is a need for an intermediary to ensure that gigs are paid for at the end of the work and the platform is just the first steps to the goal. It must be noted that there is a strong use of blockchain technology to ensure safe and fast communications at best.

I really can get behind this! ....as an artist for most of my career I dreamed of this happening. Great team, very clear vision. Amazing. Rewards for high ratings/referrals, that would be the stuff right there. Well done. Look forward to seeing more!

Strong team with solid idea. Although the idea is not unique as there are several projects out there. Hope this one can make it differentiate from others. Good luck!

I love going over the whitepaper and the site. This is a massive market, a lot of strong players, upcoming blockchain competition, but there is a space for more. Looking forward to technology details on the product development.

Team: Pros: - deep experience in tech - positive vesting schedule for the team and advisors Vision: Pros: - great vision, overwhelming number of projects - solves trust issues in the freelancer market Cons: - the integration and development of services as chat services - not convinced about way from centralized blockchain by GigTricks to get external nodes Product: Pros: - a lot of thought on the essence and needs of the freelance market - very good incentivized voting system for reviews Cons: - KYC/AML is not answered - the burning of the token supports the view that the token is an investment vehicle, hence the token would be a security token. Do miss a note or discussion about that. - not clear what the costs of GigTricks are for freelancers although the costs of other platforms are discussed in depth 23rd June 2018: Thanks a lot for your very helpful comments Amir Shaikh. Hence, I upgraded the overall rating by one notch, as the KYC/AML issue is solved and the overall product makes an even better impression.

I see a good team and a product that does not need decentralization and has no real blockchain applicability. I am very curious on how GigTricks' algorythm differs to the ones used by the centralised freelance platforms, such as Fiverr or UpWork. Will it not take the same KPI's into consideration, such as number of projects fulfilled combined with customer ratings and level of proficiency? The project itself aims to be a new freelancing platform, only tokenized. No blockchain or decentralization needed here.

Update 30 June: After clarification with Amir on a long phone call I am updating my review. Amir has definitely got the marketing strategy penned down, with extensive experience managing huge resources (teams and funding) successfully. I am better satisfied with their vision, product and commercialisation plans from what I heard, but it will be nice to see this on paper (which Amir said would be updated). Still have some reservations on the technology stack that they have chosen, but this is no dealbreaker. The option to migrate to another platform in the future does exist. One thing that was highly comforting is the teams strategy in terms of who they are talking to (other partners to support easier fiat conversion, the right legal authorities, etc), why they have confidently made specific decisions, etc. They're putting their heads on the chopping block and willing to do things right. A few things need to still be figured out, but that's expected when utilising new technologies like blockchain. They're on the right trajectory. Gigtricks.com is already an existing platform for buyers and sellers to do business. No vapourware here. Original review: I've reviewed the whitepaper and looked at the team. Vision is too broad. Trying to do too much, with limited info on how the business will be built. On the whitepaper: Section 14.1 Limitations of current ecosystem - these are not problems. Just differentiators. Transparency is not a centralisation issue. Rather, it's what info a seller is willing to offer on his public profle. Seller may choose to not publish their real name, if they are also working for another company and not allowed to take on additional jobs. Lack of openness is not a problem. It's part of the business model. What alternative method is better for these businesses? Section 15. I do not see any additional benefits offered by GigTricks except for the claimed low transaction cost which still needs to be tested when sellers convert tokens to fiat. 19.2 On GigTricks social, sometimes it's better to separate work from pleasure. 20.1 Authenticated reviews system - all platforms offer buyers and sellers to rate each other. 24.2 Voting pool - clever Choice of HyperLedger fabric - why a private blockchain? Speed? Permissioned? Token issue via ChainCode? Team: Too technical focused. Require business development and more hard marketing skills. Advisors: Some questionable members who have been involved in dodgy ICO's. In General: Building a new technology platform is easy. You don't need blockchain to solve the problems in the current ecosystem, primarily being high commission fees. I think the team knows this. Why go with Hyperledger Fabirc? Only 5% of funds collected are going towards both bounty and marketing. A lot of business development and marketing is required to attract freelancers and buyers to the platform. Majority of the effort should be spent there, rather than building a complex technology stack with a weak business case Exactly how they offer low transaction costs (for the end user), and maintain their infrastructure plus have funds to grow the business is not shown. Does the team have a business plan with financial assumptions and projections?

Experience Team, vision is clear and product seems to be delivered as defined in WP. However, despite of the fact that Blockchain eliminate the middle men, this sector must be properly target to a specific audience to increase the usage of platform. Most of the case, people based on freelance are unemployed and to pay their expenses they will always prefer FIAT over crypto, Therefore, team has to work really hard to make its ecosystem strong.

The project looks interesting, the team experienced and the advisory board is great too. Execution is the big challenge. Best of luck to the team!

i do not see this as a blockchain solution to anything. The idea that they need 35mil usd is absolutely ridiculous. This product is nothing more than a job board. I do not see any viable return on investment. i do not see this as a good investment.

The good thing is that there is already a live platform for the project. But....... Can someone from the team explain to me once again why this project has to be decentralized? I mean i get it that it will insure that transactions between freelancers and customers to be faster and inexpensive and that blockchain will provide a secure framework for the platform but is the blockchain implementation really gonna improve the platform? How many people are willing or have the ability to use the features described in the whitepaper? Will these blockchain based features make GigTricks differentiate from the other Job boards? I think not.

Big and powerful team. Quite good idea and its implementation. KYC Verification and a ready prototype is undergone. In total at the very good level, but something is missing everywhere. But in general it is quite good. Good luck, guys!
