So what is the idea behind Belance?
Belance is a large unique blockchain platform which combines many opportunities and connects everyone in the blockchain world. Whether you're building your new project or searching for something unique, Belance is the first platform where there are unlimited opportunities to connect and discuss with others regarding the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry. Also connect with professionals to help your own project by hiring a specialist to complete a specific task within your project. Promote and advertise your own skills and specialities to clients. Ask questions on any topic related to the blockchain or become a blockchain blogger. Belance is a one stop place for everything for everyone who is interested in or connected to the blockchain world.
One of the features for you to use on Belance, which will be integrated into the platform, is the addition of a post and blog posting interface.
There are forums currently available for users on various websites. The problem with these forums is that they are mostly old and obsolete.
- Such obsolete forums do not allow ease and comfort of use with regards to the use of text
redactors and editing of posts. This limits your opportunities for announcements or discussions.
- On such forums you never quite know who you talking to. What is behind the nickname of the user who is recommending you something, promoting new project or answering to your ques-
tion? Are they a specialist, amateur or new member?
- With these forums you are not benefitted for the amount of hours you spent online answering or
asking questions or participating in discussions, therefore your opportunities are limited.
- It is also difficult to find quick, transparent ‘to the point’ answers on a number of subjects and
Belance solves these problems. It's a more modern, comfortable and easy to use option that these other available forums. We will achieve this by;
- Allowing all users of the Belance platform the opportunity to make announcements or to write posts with more comfortable and easy to use text redactors which will make your post stand out and appear more professional. The Belance platform is creating the most unique and modern edi- tor for the moderating of posts and announcements.
- All users of Belance have the choice to verify their account. So you will always know who you talking to or have a business relationship with. Also on the profile of users you have the opportu- nity to see all of their activities on the platform along with feedback, recommendations, posts, rat- ings and comments of users . With this addition information users have more knowledge to make a choice whether to trust a user’s input or not.
- All of your time and activity spent on the Belance platform (comments, posts, blogs, executing works, answering of questions, even logging in etc) will be converted into points and a user rating. This rating will give you unlimited opportunities.
- On the Belance platform you will be able to ask any questions you desire about the blockchain or cryptocurrency. Your questions and concerns will be easy to answer because of a good Web- site map ‘Questions” section. Other users can answer or comment on your question. These an- swers can be rated by other users and you can also check the rating of the responding user to assess their knowledge and experience.
We all know about digital marketplaces and freelance marketplaces.
There are many of these Freelance platforms around the world, however there are no freelance platforms tailored for the blockchain industry.
With current freelance platforms around the world one can order or pay for example by using PayPal, Credit cards or other different Fiat payment methods. Users can not always pay using these methods though because of various reasons such as restrictions in their country of pay- ment or purely not having access to certain methods.....
The fast and easy solution is to use cryptocurrency (ETH, BTC, ERC20 etc) which is gaining pop- ularity and demand. Everybody has access to cryptocurrency, it's quick, transparent and easy to use. On Belance, users are able to pay each other directly. In addition however, the platform will
have the option of a ‘Secure Transaction’ for these payments between users. This option will use the Belance platform as a guarantor for the transaction with a dispute service available.
With this option of a freelance platform it will be possible for users to list and promote their own skills and work, available for hire and purchase, such as;
- Smart Contracts
- Project Designs
- Graphical Designs
- Whitepaper Designs
- Templates and many more specialities relating to the cryptocurrency and IT industry
There is no pure freelance service available for the blockchain! So we, Belance, will be the first!
The other unique useful feature of Belance is the points and rating system. Users can have a veri- fied profile and have a rating by earning points for activity on the platform. This can be earned by creating blockchain topics, providing and receiving feedback to other topics and so on. Users can use this rating as promotion for yourself with unlimited opportunities for free!
We will also have a rating system for a user’s portfolio. Completed works and client feedback on these works will create a higher rating for the user. This will give them more exposure to other po- tential clients as results for job searches on the platform will allow higher rated users to stand out above the rest.
