A storm has hit the investment market which we are not going to recover from. Crypto investment is that storm. With strict capital controls in place by most countries to control the flow of money and charge high taxes, cryptocurrency gained usage in circumventing capital controls and taxes, leading to an increase in demand. Cryptocurrency has been able to present an easy to use digital alternative to fiat currencies. Offering frictionless transactions and inflation control, investors have been prudent enough to add these currencies in their diversified portfolios as an asset, as the size of the market does not represent a systemic risk. Cryptocurrency employs the use of cryptography that assures high-security processes and verifies transactions personal to each user. Hence, counterfeiting and anonymous transactions are impossible to achieve.
While this revolution is gaining wide acceptance, UMKA, a decentralized blockchain-based labor market with efficient project implementations and a wide variety of useful tools integrated into its system has arrived.
Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it.
What exactly is UMKA?
UMKA is an efficient project implementation and a team-building tool based on the blockchain technology. UMKA means financial safety for all users: all platform transactions use agile smart contracts based on blockchain technology. Secure deals are done using the customizable Agile Smart Contract methodology based on the EOS blockchain. AgileSC offers an opportunity for stage-by-stage project payments and agreed-upon amendments while guaranteeing efficiency and convenience for all parties involved. Freelancers can work on their own or in project groups, and can be paid in 15 cryptocurrencies as well as fiat currencies. UMKA takes a 1% commission from all smart contract transactions within the platform. Funds, gathered this way will be distributed among UMK token holders automatically.
Furthermore, UMKA is a decentralized blockchain-based labor market with efficient project implementations and a wide variety of useful tools integrated into its system.
UMKA is a comfortable space for cooperation between employers and contractors that offers a wide array of useful tools integrated into its system: digital passport contains user’s data. The data is stored on the blockchain.

The digital passport makes easier for employers to find freelancers with the required skill set.

Personal Data Security
The user login is stored on the blockchain and accessible only with using a generated private key encrypted by the user’s password.

How UMKA Works?
The Functionality of The Platform
UMKA is designed as a digital meeting point for professionals in various fields who can either perform a particular type of services or hire experts in the framework of the projects. With its interface, UMKA seeks to minimize the barriers that most freelancers and employers face in finding projects as well as hiring professionals who are qualified to perform a particular work.
UMKA proposes an active labor market policy. This includes job search assistance, integrated training courses as well as legal support in terms of contracts conclusion. In order to enable effective interactions, two types of community groups will be created, refereed as project groups created by freelancers, and independent experts. Employers in turn can easily contact any professional they are willing to employ for a project.
Generating an employee profile
Employee profiles, which are introduced to the platform as digital passports, will cover qualification, professional aims as well as skills and achievements. On top of that, information concerning course completion provided on the platform as well as ratings will be available as well.
Placing a job proposal
Each project proposal should contain information on aims and desires results and identify the scope of the work. Commissioners should plan their project budget and allocate the right amount for each asset. UMKA's interface will enable a professional communication through the chat option with integrated machine translation. Commissioners will be given an opportunity to leave feedback as soon as the work is done.
