FAQ for Supporters (engineers, designers, financial & legal professionals, marketers, translators who want to support new projects.)
Q: Is Starbase similar to Upwork or Freelancers? What’s the difference?
A: Starbase provides crowdfunding & crowdsourcing functionality with build-in web wallet functionality on the platform. The wallet can be used with Bitcoin and Ethereum.
With the Starbase platform you can join and work in very innovative projects, and earn Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other blockchain tokens.
The Core teams’ tokens are shared incentives between you and all the other token holders of the project. If the project becomes success, then you have the possibility to earn more, because the token price will go up.
Q: What is the advantages of Starbase in comparison to Upwork.com, Freelancer.com and similar websites?
A: Upwork, Freelancer, they are the biggest, and most stable crowdsourcing platforms, but most of projects are not visionary, global, nor interesting, and you can not expect much return from working there. In addition to that, workers can not earn shared incentives with the employer, so you can not be “CoWorker”. In the current world, shared incentives are similar to stocks.
By using the Starbase platform, any workers ( whom we refer to as “supporters”) can have shared incentives with the employer (and the core team). Supporters can be like co-workers of the project, and if the project becomes successful, you will gain more.
Will Starbase be used for visionary, global and innovative projects ? Our answer is “Yes”, because most of the visionary and big projects require a lot of money and a lot of stake holder, which makes Starbase an optimal choice for their fundraiser/team-recruiting.
