Chris Truman, age 37, is a Business Analyst based in Christchurch, New Zealand. He works within a project team on digital projects, such as website or software upgrades, migrations, and improvements.

"I'm a business analyst during the week working within project teams on digital projects such as website or software upgrades, migrations, and improvements. That’s where the money is for me," he said.

But when it comes to his real passion, Mr. Truman says: "I write music as a side hustle and hobby in my spare time. This is where I need AnyTask services such as graphic design and video design for artwork and content for releases. I need to organize more of this actually so thanks for the reminder!"

Why hire freelancers?

The New Zealander explained that for him, costs are a significant factor. And if you can reduce costs and at the same time support a good cause, then AnyTask is a good option, he added.

However, he reiterated that "selfishly, the cost is a big factor for me. Graphic designers here in New Zealand, for example, seek at least NZD 100 (some $66) an hour."

He says the hourly asking price is fair for New Zealand, "but when we're talking about my budget being a small-time artist – it's small, so, therefore, I use AnyTask."

Chris seeks the help of online freelancers several times a year. Over the past seven years, he has purchased well over 60 tasks from freelancers on Fiverr, and now from AnyTask.

He began using AnyTask over a year, he recalls. And when asked how he would compare AnyTask to other leading platforms, he responded: "Anytask seems more personable than the other website I used. ​ It's easier to use."

Chris made it his go-to website for freelancers. He has purchased about ten graphic and video design tasks so far.

When asked if he plans to continue using AnyTask, he said: "For sure. As a buyer, I was happy with the products and orders I received."

AnyTask launched in late 2019, and already over 530,000 people have registered to the website, where buyers of tasks can find over 12,000 freelance offerings across dozens of categories and subcategories. The platform offers buyers 100% satisfaction, which means if they are not happy with the delivery of their project, they get a full refund.

Buy or sell digital tasks

Today’s leading freelance platforms have made tremendous leaps forward in providing people with the ability to earn a living online whilst doing the Tasks they love. Anything from making quick videos with your smartphone to logo design and translation services is sold online today, providing individuals and businesses with a cost-effective way of getting jobs done. You can get started as a Seller with just a simple internet-enabled smartphone.

Sell without a bank account

However, these platforms have a major restriction, in that both Buyer and Seller require access to a bank account. This single restriction is stopping hundreds of millions of people in unbanked regions from selling their services online, and in turn, helping them to make a better living for themselves and their families. The AnyTask™ Platform is a new online marketplace matching Buyers and Sellers of digital Tasks and designed to overcome this limitation. While payment is still taken from the Buyer’s credit or debit card, it is delivered seamlessly to the Seller in ETN; a world-leading mobile cryptocurrency created by Electroneum Ltd. This enables the Seller to receive payment without the need for a bank account. The ETN earned can be spent in a growing list of ways, such as topping up your phone or converting it into your local currency via an exchange.

Zero Seller fees

Furthermore, where other platforms may charge Sellers up to 20% in fees, the AnyTask Platform is entirely free to the Seller. The AnyTask Platform continues to evolve with ongoing improvements since its launch in late 2019.
