What is CryptoTask?

CT is a decentralized freelance market ecosystem skipping 3rd party fees by directly connecting hirees and applicants peer to peer. CT uses a commercially scalable consensus mechanism with a reviewer board selection built into the blockchain. This means job disputes are resolved much faster and cheaper, while your reputation is stored on blockchain technology and there is no arbitrary censorship or hidden tampering, such as hidden boosting, something that centralised platforms are infamous for.

I have participated in freelance communities but only when the need arises. I use it mostly when I need a second opinion on something or I need a suggestion on how to go about a particular task. we can say I am leveraging on the experience of others.

I haven't participated in freelance communities before. The closest I've come to is joining a community of forex traders on Telegram, some of who managed the forex accounts of a lot of other people (or their clients ). I guess I could call them freelancers too. In the group, the amount of information divulged from experts everyday was immense. You learnt a lot just by being on the platform and any question you asked was surely given a response.

As to your question "What do you do to get job advice?", the best is to be a regular face on the platform and to first of all build on questions other regular and well known faces in the group/community have asked to also ask yours. This provides better response rates. Subsequently, you can throw your questions out there.

I must say this partnership was so unexpected and a very smart one. I don't think any Crowdholder envisaged this. Looking at the bigger picture, its only going to get better in a couple of years from now. With the right recommendations, we hope to strike the best partnerships with other members on the Freelance Institute to improve our freelancing skills.

I participate in Irish Government program for freelancers who wanna open their business. Stuff I learnt there helped me to change project into business and meet great people. 
 

All my current new project are build over long hours researching internet, watching YouTube and listening to podcasts. Often Facebook groups are really helpful or contacting best individuals from our trade over social media lately working very well. People definitely need projects like yours becuase there is great field to build nice community of freelancers.

I have in the past tried to engage in freelance communities but I have not had very good experiences in doing so.  The data provided is inconsistent and often not very helpful in terms of finding real meaningful opportunities or information.  

I have used these communities to identify helpful and knowledgable individuals that I then establish 1:1 relationships for asking questions, bouncing ideas, and identifying opportunities.  These relationships have been far more sucessful and less frustrating in terms of getting answers without wasting time.

I have also notices that in larger forums some folks tend to with-hold information or opportunities in order to maximize their own access to theses opportunities.  

I would happily participate in a moderated freelance community if it overcame some of these key obstacles.

I have never participated in a freelance community but I do believe it's a good idea--Especially for those just starting out in the world of freelance. I believe one can get advice from others in their field or by following the guidelines of the freelance site itself. People can also learn thru trial and error- learning from your own mistakes.

I have only participated in one freelancer community before, which was freelancer.com
For job advice, I usually turn to the internet and do a lot of research and use a trial account at first before I actuall get into the service.

Anyway, good job on partnering with this company. Hope to see your project furthered.
