A Charlottesville-based company that’s seen growing success since it launched three years ago is preparing to equip its digital platform with its own Bitcoin-esque currency.
Founded in late 2014, Moonlighting operates as an online marketplace where users can seek out verified freelancers for a variety of services, from tasks as simple as dog walking or as technical as accounting. Originally conceived as a disrupter to LinkedIn, the mobile app now boasts more than 600,000 freelancers using the platform to “promote their skills, find new clients and get discovered,” according to founder Jeff Tennery.
“They can interact with new clients, send them proposals and get paid right from their mobile phone,” Tennery said. “The idea is that it’s a Swiss army knife for people who want to start their own business, entrepreneurs, or anyone just trying to make a little extra cash on the side.”
