What is a ticket?
Over the past 2 years we have witnessed a significant rise in digital nomadism and work from home. By 2027, freelancing is poised to become the majority of the U.S. workforce. Esteemed businesses are hiring more freelancers than ever before. In fact, as of 2019, Google’s workforce has more freelancers than full-time employees. In addition, SMBs are finding freelancers a more cost-effective and flexible solution to their hiring needs. In 2021, 19 of the 20 most in-demand skills for freelancers are related to creative works and development. Blockchain-related skills came in at the top of that list.
With a largely untapped freelance market for unbanked talents/clients and frustrations surrounding current freelancing platforms; a golden opportunity is presented for Flan to set the standard of the future's gig economy.

Our matchmaking algorithms work to show the right person the opportunity that best fits them and in turn increase the probability of successful projects and valuable experiences. Our local-first matchmaking structure empowers local economies, especially unbanked ones, and presents the community with a platform where they can meet and create meaningful relationships.
We believe in the fluid and organic nature of the gig economy. Stemming from that, we encourage members to meet outside of the platform in real life. We believe that a platform’s success should not depend on harvesting the attention span of users and taking away their professional freedom to meet in person and connect with others. Instead, at Flan we celebrate what makes us creative and human. We cherish privacy and freedom. Our job is to facilitate, not control. Operating on a decentralized network within the Celo ecosystem allows Flan to be completely transparent and accessible and our community-governance gives our members a say in how the platform operates.
Our focus on the creative industry allows us to understand its pain points and in turn deliver the best experience to both freelancers and clients. A freelancer on Flan has the space to showcase their projects and share who they are with clients and the community. Clients can easily navigate freelancers’ credentials, past works, and decide who’s the right fit for the job. They can then plan the project together, facilitated by Flan’s built-in video/audio meetings and agile project tracking.
When a task is paid, a client can choose to mint a “Task Submission” NFT of the work and sell it directly on Flan’s NFT marketplace. Those NFTs contain metadata of the project, the freelancer, and the client. In addition, we empower the creator economy by enabling everyone to mint and sell “Media for Sale” NFTs on Flan’s NFT Marketplace.
We understand that crypto adoption has still more growing to do so, in the meantime, we offer members the option to pay/get paid in FIAT should they prefer to, and incentivize them to pay in cUSD/FLN. What sets us apart from the competition is our commitment to curating an all-encompassing freelancing experience that truly serves and builds the creative community worldwide.
