Blocklancer not affected by China ICO regulation
As you may know, China imposed a temporary ban of ICOs. We will address some important questions there. Most important is that Blocklancer is not affected by the Chinese regulations.
The ban is not a law
At the moment the ban of ICOs is not a law.
Caixin, a local financial magazine and Chinese regulators (People’s Bank of China & China Securities Regulatory Commission) are deciding at the moment, how to handle ICOs in the future. There are reports that a permanent suspension is possible.
But right now there are no regulations put in place, therefore we can assume that the ban of ICOs is temporary and could be lifted within reasonable time.
The Blocklancer tokensale and platform is not affected by the ban
Blocklancer is not located in China and we do not have any business relations with Chinese entities at the moment. Blocklancer is based in Austria and is 100% compliant with the legislative framework of Austria and the EU.
Blocklancer is not affected, because our token cannot be seen as a financial instrument or security. We are actively developing a cryptoeconomic freelancing platform and the token plays an essential role in our environment. Moreover our platform will be rolled out soon. Blocklancer is NO scam and therefore is not a target for any authorities.
Regulation can be good in the long run (if done right)
If done right, regulation can be good for the whole ICO market. It is no secret that there are lots of scam projects around. Some people even argue that 90% of ICOs are scam. Even Caixin quotes a source that said “90% of ICO projects are suspected of illegal fund-raising and intentional fraud”. Moreover there are also concerns that ICOs are used to fund terrorism.
If regulations are done right, the investors of ICOs can be protected. This would also lower to hurdle and ICOs could reach a broader audience. Moreover scam projects can be filtered out sooner and therefore there is more room for legit projects that are actively developing innovative projects that can improve many aspects of the current industries and services. Blocklancer is avant-garde in this perspective, because we are solving real world problems with the disruptive power of the Blockchain technology.

Blocklancer ICO: Roles on the Freelance Marketplace
Tokenholders: Platform Governance
Perhaps the most critical role on the Blocklancer platform is that of the Tokenholder. Those holding Lancer Tokens (LNC) are Tokenholders and, therefore, subject to certain benefits and responsibilities on the Blocklancer platform. The Tokenholder on the Blocklancer platform is synonymous with shareholders within a corporation. The difference between Blocklancer and the traditional corporation is that Blocklancer is 100% owned and decided upon by Tokenholders.
Tokenholders will receive 100% of the 3% of fees charged on the Blocklancer platform and will be responsible for voting in the dispute resolution process should disputes occur between Freelancers and Clients. This puts the decision-making power in the hands of those holding LNC — allowing for more fair way to handle disputes on the platform. Tokenholders have an incentive to participate in the dispute resolution process, decided by majority vote, because the Tokenholders who voted with the majority receive LNC from the Tokenholders who voted on the losing side.
Freelancers: Perform Work
Blocklancer project has emerged as an innovative decentralized business model called the Distributed Autonomous Job Market (DAJ) because of the problems Freelancers face on a daily basis on present freelance platforms. Some of these problems are outlined in our White Paper which can be found in detail on the official Blocklancer website, but are listed succinctly below:
- Unnecessary difficulties receiving payments from clients
- Clients leaving undeserving/negative profile reviews
- High fees on current freelancing platforms (Blocklancer = ONLY 3%)
- Unlimited centralized power on current freelancing platforms
Blocklancer is aiming to make job proposals as easy as possible for Freelancers within and outside of the blockchain industry. With an initial focus on becoming a resource for the blockchain community’s needs, Blocklancer will then branch out to non-blockchain markets with a focus on becoming the Freelance platform of the future.
Clients: Find Low-cost Freelance Work
While Blocklancer is focused more on helping the individual Freelancer than the corporation, the Leadership Team understands the symbiotic relationship within the ecosystem and, thus, will be far more affordable than any currently available option for businesses.
Blocklancer employs ONLY a 3% fee on Employment Contracts created by businesses, but the fee is paid by the Freelancer for having the opportunity provided by the Client. These are essentially projects or gigs a Freelancer can scan the Blocklancer platform for, evaluate, and submit a proposal to be reviewed by the Client.
Below is a comparison of platform fees charged by present freelance job platforms:Blocklancer White Paper
As you can see above, Blocklancer will be very attractive to companies seeking Freelancer’s for specialized, niche work. The fees are non-existent for companies, which should result in a major increase in employment opportunities. We expect this to, in turn, attract Freelancers to the Blocklancer platform seeking fair employment opportunities.
Another important feature to note in the red box — just look how how much existing freelance platforms gouge their Freelancers…10–20% of the employment contract PLUS withdrawal fees, conversion fees, and 3–4 days time for funds to hit your account. Blocklancer was developed with these key negative features in-mind for you to have a better Freelance experience!

Slack Scam and the Future of our Community Communication Channel
As you may have noticed, there have been many scammers and phishing attempts around on the Slack channels of Blockchain projects (read more). Unfortunately also our official Blocklancer Slack channel has been infiltrated by theses scammers.
We are doing our best to ban scammers as fast as possible. Slack provides no mechanism against these scam. Many scammers use the reminder functionality of slack so that the slackbot itself is sending phishing messages to community members.
Like other projects we are looking for some open-source solutions that can fulfill the needs of our user base. As an alternative to slack, we already created a Discord channel.
Note: Please never follow instructions from any users on Slack to send money to any addresses. Please also check links that are sent to you on Slack. If you encounter any phishing attempts please immediately get in contact with the administrators of the channel.
The Blocklancer Team proudly presents the Whitelist campaign!

Partnership Announcement: Starbase and Blocklancer Partner to Expand Business Solutions
We are happy to announce that Blocklancer and Starbase have entered into a strategic partnership! Using the power of blockchain, Starbase aims to connect people all over the world, introducing those who are passionate about conquering difficult challenges with the necessary team and funding to accomplish their goals. Starbase will work like a crowdfunding platform, but has a major focus on using blockchain technology to enable startup projects to offer long-term incentives immediately for those working on projects in their ecosystem.
We see a major opportunity to align incentives here. At the center of Starbase’s ecosystem is a crowdfunding platform for ICO projects to raise funds. Newly funded startups and projects are going to need specific skilled labor — this is where the Blocklancer platform comes in. Starbase project creators and startups will benefit by leveraging our platform to find the skilled labor they need by listing the job requirements on Blocklancer. This, in turn, will help create an increased supply of opportunities for freelancers on the Blocklancer platform.
Starbase also has their own rating system which rates each individual team member working on projects. Blocklancer’s rating system can act as an indicator for Starbase project creators to check if the freelancer is competent before hiring them. The STAR token is their ecosystem currency and can be integrated into the Blocklancer platform so that Starbase project creators can search for freelancers who can be invited directly via the Blocklancer platform.
Finally, the core team of projects on the Starbase platform will gain access to the premium features on Blocklancer, empowering the project creators to better find the skilled labor necessary for their project.
We are excited to come together as we ramp up for our ICO. Starbase’s ICO starts November 9th, 2017. The Blocklancer ICO launch date will be announced soon. Stay tuned as we continue to bring blockchain to the mainstream!
