Moonlighting App


The Democratization of the Freelance Economy

Building on an Established Community

We are Moonlighting, one of the fastest-growing and most trusted marketplaces in the United States’ freelance economy. Backed by the three largest news media companies, the Moonlighting community has grown to more than 700,000 freelancers and small business owners since our inception more than 3 years ago.

Moonlighting Gets Better with Blockchain Technology

To address the most significant issues currently plaguing the freelance economy, Moonlighting will become the first U.S.-based freelance marketplace to incorporate blockchain technology into its already robust and trusted platform.


Eliminating the Risk of Online Hiring

Through blockchain technology, the accuracy and authenticity of freelance worker reviews, work history, and online profiles will be immutable. This will remove the anonymity and inconsistency slowing down employer decisions and allow Moonlighting to become the most trusted choice for online hiring.


Empowering the Distribution of Data

By decentralizing Moonlighting user reviews and profile data, we will give control of data back to the user; empowering users to own their data, giving them the freedom to securely share and port their data.


Reducing the Cost of Doing Business

Through the introduction of a native, global cryptographic token, Moonlighting will reduce the arbitrary and excessive freelance marketplace fees, international currency exchange fees, and payment processing fees that take money out of freelancers' pockets.
