DeeLance Crypto Presale Launches to Bring Freelancing & Recruiting to Web3

Finance News

Web3 freelance and recruitment marketplace DeeLance launched its presale, raising more than $27,000 in its first 24 hours. This disruptive new platform seeks to revolutionize how companies hire contract employees and freelancers. Thanks to DeeLance’s use of blockchain technology, it’s simpler, faster, and cheaper to hire the right person for every job than ever before. Early investors have 15 days remaining to lock in the lowest price for DeeLance’s native ERC-20 token, $DLANCE. The project is planning an initial exchange offering at a list price of $0.035, representing a 40% increase from today’s presale price. DeeLance takes aim at the $761 billion recruitment industry DeeLance is making waves among analysts and investors because the potential size of its disruption is enormous. The global human resources (HR) and recruitment services industry is worth an estimated $761 billion according to research firm IBISWorld. DeeLance is going toe-to-toe right from the start with publicly traded companies like Upwork and Fiverr. However, DeeLance brings significant advantages for employers and freelancers compared to these legacy recruitment platforms. First, DeeLance makes it significantly cheaper to hire. Its 2% fee for employers is the lowest of any existing marketplace. Its 10% fee for freelancers is also highly competitive. On top of that, DeeLance doesn’t hold up payments for days on end. The platform’s blockchain-backed escrow accounts protect both employers and workers from loss, but release funds instantly once work is transferred and approved. Payments can be made in cryptocurrency as well as fiat, ensuring that there are no payment delays or costly foreign exchange fees. Visit DeeLance Presale Leveraging NFTs to manage ownership over work One of the biggest challenges that existing freelance marketplaces face is transferring ownership from contract workers to employers. Contracts rarely specify who gets to keep the intellectual property rights associated with any piece of content. DeeLance cuts through the confusion by tokenizing work as NFTs. When an employer purchases work such as a piece of written content or software code, they receive an NFT representing their ownership over that work as a deliverable. This ensures that there are never questions about who owns a piece of content and there are no limits on how companies can use the work that they’ve paid for. DeeLance metaverse offers new ways to work and hire Alongside its Web3 marketplace, DeeLance is developing the first metaverse built specifically for recruitment and freelancing. The DeeLance metaverse is an integral part of this platform, not an afterthought to take advantage of the latest trends. In DeeLance’s metaverse, employers looking to hire and freelancers looking for work will be able to interact freely as avatars. Employers can set up offices to hold meetings and interviews or even purchase virtual advertising to supercharge their hiring process. Freelancers can advertise their services and network with clients to encourage repeat work. The $DLANCE token plays an essential role in this metaverse. While contracts on DeeLance can be paid in fiat or a variety of major cryptocurrencies, offices and advertising in the DeeLance metaverse can only be purchased with $DLANCE. This means that employers and freelancers who purchase $DLANCE during the presale can lock in a discount on future office space and advertising in the DeeLance metaverse. It’s an investment not only in $DLANCE itself, but also in the future of their own businesses. Visit DeeLance Presale Limited opportunity to invest in the future of hiring DeeLance is bringing together blockchain, NFTs, and the metaverse to redefine how companies hire and how freelancers find work. It offers a major leap forward over existing recruitment platforms and holds competitive advantages in price, transparency, and speed. Investors, employers, and freelancers can lock in the lowest price for the $DLANCE token during the first stage of the project’s presale. For a limited time, $DLANCE is priced at $0.025 USDT. The price will increase to $0.027 in Stage 2 of the presale and to $0.030 in Stage 3. The presale has allocated 30% of the total $DLANCE supply and has a hard cap of $6 million. Investors can purchase $DLANCE through the DeeLance presale site using Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), or a credit card via Transak.

MetaBank

Singapore-based MetaBank made its debut at the Blockchain Education Summit and Digital Civilisation conference held at Oriel College in Oxford University on 28th March 2023. MetaBank's CEO and COO shared the company's mission and latest case studies in Lao PDR. The company's core focus is to help developing countries transition to blockchain and digital civilisation, aiming to empower individuals and businesses worldwide. Founded by a team of bankers, lawyers, and researchers, MetaBank is committed to shaping the world by leveraging blockchain technology, particularly for developing countries in Asia. Developing countries in Southeast Asia, such as Lao PDR and Cambodia, have a lower economic development rate and poor infrastructure that have put their famous cultural heritage, such as Angkor Wat and the town of Luang Prabang, at risk. By applying blockchain technology, MetaBank aims to bring greater economic growth, helping these countries to achieve leapfrog development. MetaBank has developed innovative strategic solutions centred around blockchain technology, featuring three core pillars aimed at revolutionising the digital space. The first of these pillars is Digital Financial Inclusion, prioritising the provision of digital financial services to everyone, regardless of their income, social status, or location. Secondly, the Sustainable Digitisation pillar advocates for the fair and sustainable use of digital technologies to promote environmental responsibility and equitable access. The third pillar, the Digital Trust Ecosystem, prioritises secure and trustworthy digital interactions through cutting-edge technologies, policies, and practices. Blockchain technology is integral to achieving these objectives and enables improvements in digital identity, supply chain management, public services, transparency, and corruption reduction. MetaBank also uses blockchain technology to promote cultural heritage preservation and economic exchange through NFTs. Frank Sui, founder and CEO of the company, said, "I founded MetaBank to help eradicate poverty and give everyone a chance to live a better life." As an exclusive strategic partner for the Lao PDR government, MetaBank operates a national-level digital transformation project, using blockchain-powered digital assets as a viable solution to preserve the heritage of Buddhism in Lao PDR. LaoBuddhist.DAO will use NFTs to digitally promote Lao Buddhist culture around the world, create digital economic income, and increase foreign exchange reserves. The Luang Prabang Token (LPT) was issued based on the Lao national blockchain technology to improve the tourist experience by providing simple and convenient payment methods, thus preserving the national cultural heritage while promoting local economic development. MetaBank's ultimate mission is to provide financial services to those who are unbanked or underbanked. By using blockchain-based systems, local people can access financial services without needing a bank account. These projects allow people in developing countries who lack access to traditional banking systems to engage in economic activity and participate in the global economy. MetaBank's innovative solutions are set to shape the future of digital transformation and empower individuals and businesses worldwide.

FiscalNote Holdings Inc’s (NYSE: NOTE) Artificial Intelligence Solutions: A Pathway To Success In An Algorithmic World?

Benzinga

By Jad Malaeb, Benzinga The prevalent perception of algorithms is that they’re almost mystical orchestrators that govern the way social media platforms function. For younger generations, the word “algorithm” is tied to TikTok and Instagram feeds, overly-specific advertisements and the results of a Google search. This pervasive and intuitive significance of an algorithm represents the technology’s omnipresence. Even those who have no idea what it is know that it’s somehow “there,” lurking in the background. Sitting at a crossroads between mathematics and computer science, algorithms play a pivotal role in almost all data-centric systems with human input. Algorithms control when numerous stocks are bought and sold, interpret what news is fed to the public upon release, direct the flow of emails from one destination to another, suggest the shortest route to get to a certain destination and perform a million other functions that have become part of everyday life. Using Algorithms To Develop Statistical Edges Over Competitors As a part of data-driven learning, algorithms have been praised for their ability to help humans make better decisions. However, because they’re often mathematically complex and demand knowledge of computer science, algorithms are difficult to build independently. Those seeking to leverage algorithms’ competitive advantage may find some value in some that are already available. Specifically, examples like FiscalNote Holdings Inc’s (NYSE: NOTE) Anvil artificial intelligence platform may be a good destination for those hunting for algorithms that may provide them with a competitive advantage in the financial markets and business in general. Anvil: FiscalNote’s Next-Generation AI Platform Anvil is FiscalNote's next-generation AI platform that ingests and structures millions of content-based documents monthly from around the globe, including news, regulatory filings, earnings calls, and social content. Anvil uses proprietary natural language understanding (NLU) techniques to extract entities, events, relationships, measurements, dates, and more. Anvil provides access to billions of calculated measurements and millions of public and private companies, executives, insiders, and influencers. Its suite of AI-based scoring algorithms continually updates sentiment, saliency, impact scores, classifications and other measures to enrich the data. The platform also includes a collection of curated AI use cases that provide critical intelligence to analysts, quants and investors.

Retiree Shareowners Seek to Limit Verizon Executive Golden Parachutes & Enhance Clawback Policy

The Association of BellTel Retirees

Members of the non-profit Association of BellTel Retirees, Inc. have two shareholder proposals for the 2023 Verizon (NYSE:VZ) shareowner meeting, aimed at strengthening the senior executive clawback policy while limiting executive golden parachutes. The annual meeting will be in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 11. The BellTel Retirees have a long and successful history of shareowner advocacy at Verizon, acting as an integral check for better governance practices. Since 2003, they have achieved 12 changes to corporate governance, including three by majority vote (2013, 2007, 2003). The Association of BellTel Retirees is proposing Item #8, a Shareholder Ratification of Annual Equity Awards policy (Aka: “Golden Parachute”) which recommends shareowner approval of any new and renewed senior executive compensation packages that would include severance or termination payments exceeding 2.99 times base salary plus target short-term bonus. A nearly identical retiree proposal achieved a 44% vote in 2022. This measure seeks to strengthen the current policy, which Verizon adopted following a successful 2003 BellTel-backed proposal that achieved 59% of shares voted. Retirees believe much more scrutiny is needed over exit packages, reflective of the one currently available to CEO Hans Vestberg. As disclosed in the 2023 Proxy, Mr. Vestberg could receive $31.6 million, or more than six (6) times his 2022 base salary plus a short-term bonus, upon termination following any change in company control. The second retiree proposal, by BellTel Chairman Thomas M. Steed, which achieved 37% in 2022, would amend Verizon’s Senior Executive Compensation Clawback Policy (Item #7). The current policy allows cancellation or recoupment of cash and equity compensation when executives engage only in “willful misconduct” resulting in a material restatement of the corporation’s financial results. BellTel believes the company’s current policy wording is too vague and lenient to ever be effective. Proposal #7 urges enhancing the standard from “willful misconduct” to “conduct” that can cause financial or reputational risk to the company. “The executive clawback policy governing senior executives, should reflect the same expectations that all other employees of Verizon are duty-bound to follow. There should not be a double standard,” said Steed, who submitted the proposal. “Since employees can be disciplined or dismissed for failing to execute their duties, senior executives should certainly not be rewarded for harm they cause to the company’s brand or reputation, or actions that result in Verizon needing to pay penalties or restitution.” Retiree and employee shareowners whose shares are held within a Verizon savings/401k plan are required to vote by no later than May 8, 2023.
