UMKA uses a fair and transparent statistical system that ensures there is no rating fraud or falsified feedback. Scores from one to five are awarded by the parties anonymously following completion of the transaction only. The Employer cannot see the Freelancer’s feedback unless he/she posts his/ her own feedback and vice versa. Freelancers’ and Employers’ feedback is accessible to all registered users. Be default, the order history in the profile also reflects some Agile Smart Contract data: what tasks, during what time and for what remuneration the Freelancer has completed. If desired, it is possible to conceal the cost of completed works and details of the tasks, but the feedback and scores cannot be concealed. This transparent rating system gives the parties an opportunity of a thorough review of each other’s track record before entering into a contract.
All transaction within the service are done via the internal Umka Wallet using smart contract assets. In order to start working with the service, users need to create a personal wallet and recharge it using a debit or credit card, PayPal or a cryptocurrency wallet. UMKA takes a 1% commission from the transaction’s amount which is withheld from the employer’s funds.
The UMK token guarantees participation in the distribution of the platform’s revenue. The token balance will be shown in the user’s wallet, and rewards will be accumulated proportional to the amount of tokens.
The UMKA fee is 1% of the amount of all safe transactions on the part of the Employer. This small fee establishes confidence within the system and makes the service absolutely free for Freelancers acting as a guarantor of integrity of Employers. Funds will be distributed between UMK token holders automatically (when the bank reaches $150,000 USD or its equivalent in another currency). Revenue received from tokens belonging to the managed fund will be used for the support and development of the platform.
How Does it all works?
UMKA offers employers a selection from dozens of thousands of freelancers with the required competency levels recorded in their electronic passports. UMKA provides freelancers with access to thousands of projects, vacancies, testing systems with a self-control function, and training programs from the world’s leading educational institutions. UMKA does not only offer a job search. It is a smart system that makes possible for employers to set the precise requirements for freelancers while freelancers are able to build competencies following the market trends.
The services of the educational institutions integrated into UMKA offer competence-raising opportunities for internationally certified online courses from the world’s leading universities. Once a course is completed, it is reflected in the electronic passports giving freelancers a competitive advantage in the search for jobs and projects.

Agile Smart Contracts: smart contracts that allow for progress payments and introduction of changes to contracts (with the consent of both parties)
