Plans & Pricing

MASTERS IN BLOCKCHAIN

Membership Fees and Service Charges

  • Payment terms for Employer

    At the time of ordering a service, employers must provide funds equivalent to the total service price. The payment is protected by the Masters in Blockchain Payment System. Only release the payment once employers are 100% satisfied with the work that has been delivered.

  • Payment terms for Freelancers

    Freelancer is free to sign up, create a profile, select skills of projects, upload a portfolio, receive project notifications, discuss project details with the employer, bid on projects (free members receive initially 20 bids per month) and enter contests.

  • Projects

    For fixed price projects, if you are awarded a project, and you accept, we charge you a small project fee relative to the value of the selected bid, as an introduction fee. If you are subsequently paid more than the original bid amount, we will also charge the project fee on any overage payments. For hourly projects, the fee is levied on each payment as it is made by the employer to you. The fee for fixed price projects is 7% or $2.00 USD, whichever is greater, and 5% for hourly projects.

  • Contests

    Submitting entries to a contest is free. Contest fee applies when you are awarded a contest prize. This fee is charged when the prize is released, which is after contest has been awarded to you and the handover of entry materials has been completed to the contest poster's satisfaction. The freelancer contest fee is just $2.00 USD.

  • Services

    If you are subsequently hired to perform that Service, a 15% fee of the total service price is charged. This is charged when the service is ordered by way of a deduction from the payment you receive.

    • 15% for the first $500 billed with the client
    • 7% for lifetime billings with the client between $500.01 and $10,000
    • 3% for lifetime billings with the client that exceed $10,000
    When a freelancer bills $500 or $10,000 with a client, the freelancer automatically earns a lower fee going forward with that client. The freelancer will therefore see an increase in take-home earnings.

  • Preferred Freelancer Program

    If you are in the Preferred Freelancer Program, you will be charged 10% project fee when you are awarded and accept a Recruiter project. This will not be charged upfront, like on regular projects, but rather when you receive the payment.

  • 0% Fees Promotion
