With every line of code and every innovative design element, we have redefined the landscape of freelancing, empowering both crypto enthusiasts and passionate freelancers alike.

HYVE V2.5 allows freelancers to come aboard with ease! We have now added faster loading times resulting in a better user experience, therefore, our users won't have to wait for long loading times anymore! While crypto enthusiasts will find their familiar MetaMask integration intact, we understand that Web3 can be daunting for newcomers.
As such, freelancers can now opt for third-party social media logins, streamlining the onboarding process and ensuring that anyone can join the decentralized freelance revolution!

We have paid meticulous attention to every detail in redesigning the UX/UI, resulting in a visually stunning and intuitive platform. Navigating through HYVE V2.5 is now a breeze, offering a delightful experience for both freelancers and clients alike!!

Collaboration Made Easy
Direct chats are an exciting new feature introduced in V2.5, enabling seamless communication between freelancers and clients. The choice is yours now! Whether it's clarifying project requirements or discussing deliverables, real-time conversations foster efficient collaboration and build stronger working relationships, you can now communicate whatever your heart desire!
Profile Verification and POAPs
Trust is maybe the most essential matter in freelancing as well as Web3. That is why we wanted HYVE V2.5 to take this aspect to the next level, as we all know what happened in the past year with the FTX scandal and many more con artists. HYVE wants to offer profile verification, where freelancers can showcase their expertise and clients can confidently assess credentials, this will be embedded at a later date. Additionally, the Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP) lets clients gain insights into freelancers' past projects, aiding in finding the perfect match for assignments, so that you can get to know each other.
As we know HYVE is built on blockchain technology, therefore, using POAPs can enhance transparency and trust in the verification process. The immutable nature of blockchain ensures that the issuance and validity of POAPs are transparent and tamper-resistant, while also acting as a form of identity verification -freelancers can showcase their earned POAPs to potential clients as proof of their expertise and experience.
Together we can see the future!
HYVE's commitment to continuous improvement is evident through our detailed roadmap for 2023 and beyond! While V2.5 already sets a new industry standard, we are dedicated to further enhancing the platform with regular development updates and feature additions - our goal is to establish HYVE as a prominent player in the freelancing market, transcending the boundaries of web3 and becoming a go-to platform for all.
By sharing the roadmap, we also wanted the community to be an active part of the platform's growth - you can provide us with feedback, suggestions, and ideas, as we are shaping the platform's future direction together!
Future FIAT On-Ramp
Understanding the importance of accessibility, we are actively working on implementing a FIAT on-ramp feature. This exciting development will allow users to seamlessly convert traditional currencies into crypto within the platform, further democratizing access to Web3 and opening up HYVE to a broader audience. We understand that not all freelancers are well-versed in cryptocurrencies, and some may prefer to work with traditional fiat currencies due to familiarity and stability, this way they will receive payments in cryptocurrencies and convert them to fiat when needed!
