First Freelance Marketplace to Leverage Blockchain Technology
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. (PRWEB) DECEMBER 06, 2017
Moonlighting announced today its plan to launch its own token via an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) during the first quarter of 2018. The Moonlighting team is currently planning the ICO sale and will be the first freelance marketplace to incorporate blockchain technology into its platform.
Moonlighting’s on-demand hiring platform has reached 600,000 users and has maintained a top 10 featured app position in the Apple App Store for more than 2 years. Moonlighting’s three-year-old marketplace offers an all-encompassing solution instantly promoting independent workers and freelancers looking for new clients.
“Moonlighting is excited to be the first freelance marketplace in the US to leverage blockchain technology and offer an Ethereum backed token,” said Jeff Tennery, Founder and CEO of Moonlighting. “With our Moonbit token placed at the epicenter of our platform, we will help millions of freelancers and entrepreneurs achieve their work independence globally.”
Moonlighting Marketplace Credibility
Backed by the three largest news media companies in the US, Moonlighting has retained top-tier law firm Cooley LLP and Seattle-based advisory group New Alchemy to guide the company towards its first quarter 2018 token offering. Moonlighting will also announce new partnerships soon that will expand its platform internationally to Canada, the U.K., and Latin America.
“Unlike many of the bad actors launching risky ICOs with nothing more than a white paper and a PowerPoint presentation, Moonlighting is a legitimate company with a solid track record,” said Christian A. Hendricks, a well-known media executive and Moonlighting board member. “With a credible and experienced management team in place, Moonlighting has built a game changing platform that will only get better with blockchain and the issuance of their cryptocurrency.”
