It’s a question you are likely to be asking yourself in the future
The Uber and Airbnb stories simply put is the story of onboarding a global community to digital platforms to convert their spare resources into revenue. Started in March 2009, Uber set off as a company offering peer-to-peer ridesharing. They soon graduated to food delivery, and a micromobility system with electric bikes and scooters. Airbnb on the other hand got families to offload their spare room for revenue. The idea of using spare capacity and idle resources have been the hallmark of Qoin’s parent company Barter Card that’s been in existence long before Uber and Airbnb came into existence.
With close to three decades of helping merchants across the globe transact their spare time and resources digitally, Qoin has inherited a rich tradition of creating value around spare resources from its parent company. The idea of helping gig economy workers manage their time effectively to further their returns on the time spent is an attractive proposition only Qoin can offer as a platform. Why so? Remember always—Qoin is a scarce digital asset. There will only ever be 10 billion Qoin. Qoin is also a global digital currency. The more you earn in Qoin, the higher your chances are for growth.
Now look at these facts: the Australian Industry Group (2016) found that between 2014 and 2015, 32% of Australians undertook freelance work. In a survey done by Queensland University of Technology’s Paul McDonald for the Victorian government last year, the findings indicated most gig economy workers reported high satisfaction with the flexibility of work but are less satisfied with their incomes. The five most common platforms used by Australian workers are Airtasker (34.8%), Uber (22.7%), Freelancer (11.8%), Uber Eats (10.8%) and Deliveroo (8.2%).
With the interest in Qoin rapidly increasing among gig economy workers, it’s a high possibility that they will be inclined to manage their time efficiently to earn Qoin. Just in the last week, I spoke to numerous SAP and Oracle developers, SEO and content writers, web developers and IT consultants, rideshare drivers, chefs, cleaners and farmers who look to Qoin for a growth story. They are all extremely enthused with the idea of Qoin and its value proposition. What most platforms offer is fiat with an opportunity for a revenue stream.
Looking at the past performance of Qoin, it’s very clear that it’s worth the time of this workforce to dedicate some hours in a week to earn more Qoin. Be it a web developer or a rideshare operator, it makes a lot of sense offloading spare time to earn Qoin so that the value they earn has a potential for future growth.
Maybe, the question we will ask ourselves in future could be—how much Qoin have you earned this month? Or in other words, if you’ve only earned fiat in a month, is it a good scenario to be in? So think hard where and how you spend your time earning a living for yourself. Each one of you has a Qoin wallet set up on your mobile phone. What you do with it and how you convert your spare time and spare resources is a creative journey.
