Moonlighting, a Charlottesville, VA-based on-demand freelance platform, raised a funding round of undisclosed amount.
The round was led by FinLab EOS VC Fund, a venture capital fund backed by Block.one, the publisher of the blockchain protocol EOSIO and FinLab AG, which will also collaborate with Moonlighting to incorporate EOSIO into its Blockchain Profile Management System (BPMS).
The company intends to use the funds to transport over 700,000 profiles to their blockchain, using the EOSIO protocol. Each profile will become portable and include important hiring data such as reviews, referrals and recommendations as well as job verifications of third-party licenses and certifications. In addition, Moonlighting will include their mobile management tool set like proposals, invoices, mobile payments, and CRM in the blockchain profile, giving users the freedom to freelance safely on the Internet.
