Freelancers, or Talents, as iCasting calls it, shouldn't expect much from this platform, at least not in the next five years. People in general, and employers, in particular, are still largely unaware of benefits that tokenization brings, or they treat this method of hiring with a great deal of suspicion. I have been registered on a similar platform, where all payments were carried out strictly in ETH. Not much went on there, to be frank. The same could happen to iCasting.

I hate to say it, but iCasting is most likely to get lost in the myriad of similar projects that already have a strong user base, as well as global recognition. The only thing that could make iCasting rise head and shoulders above the competition is the ultra-low fees that are inherent to the blockchain platforms that feature the gateway for money transfers. But even then, it would be super hard to lure the talents and employers from other platforms.

I assume, we all have figured out that iCasting is just another freelancer platform with a fancy name. Nothing bad about that, but this space is already oversaturated with similar platforms. I could probably name a dozen such startups off the top of my head, though I didn't see any of them getting significant traction. I reckon that the same scenario will apply for iCasting. The reason being that they have a weak marketing strategy that would make them unable to build a solid community of talents seeking jobs.

Even though iCasting didn't awe me with some groundbreaking idea, I think that the emergence of new job/talent-seeking platforms is great for the freelancing space since it broadens the scope of options and money-making opportunities. All those who have some experience in freelancing should know firsthand, how ridiculous and greedy the established platforms have become. Greedy is the key here because I hope that the incorporation of cryptocurrencies would finally allow talents to earn what they deserve.

In essence, iCasting is not any different from a myriad of freelancing platforms out there that exploit the concept of tokenization of freelancing industry and elimination of third parties through the use of blockchain and smart contracts. However, this also indicates an increased demand for such solutions mainly because the existing non-blockchain platforms have lost their souls to greed a long time ago. Therefore, the majority of freelancing talents will be eagerly migrating to iCasting and other platforms. This means that iCasting has to up their marketing efforts which so far have been insufficient.

What I like about iCasting is that the team took several years to properly develop the concept, the working product, and gather initial audience before announcing the token sale. I have perused through the project's whitepaper and didn’t find any major faults. The team has been working together for many years, and on projects other than iCasting, so this is a well-greased mechanism. The board of advisors is also quite extensive. Therefore, I am confident in their success.
