What Is Moonlight?
Moonlight is a decentralized project management and workplace platform that is built on the NEO blockchain. Targeted towards freelancers, it has a variety of features that are designed to help people recruit talent and scale workforces. Tasks completed on the platform are published as part of a user’s ‘resume’ on NEO’s public ledger.
The platform incorporates matchmaking protocols and trustless datasets to help connect people together to get projects finished. A global marketplace will give people the ability to bid on projects that are posted by other organizations or individuals.
The Moonlight team says their platform will become the “premier blockchain-based talent matching platform.” The Moonlight marketplace is generally designed for workers who are part-time, so they are asked to bid on projects based on the number of hours they are able to work.
Resumes registered on the blockchain ensure information is accurate and valid, and the platform will use historical data to track how long users take to finish tasks. This gives project issuers another way to evaluate potential freelance candidates. Additionally, Moonlight lets contractors set token incentives at certain stages of the work process to encourage people to complete projects.
Moonlight’s LUX token is a NEP-5 token that has many similarities to NEO. Those holding LUX will be able to get GAS that’s proportional to their holdings. Any remittances/payments with LUX on the platform will result in lower fees for everyone involved.
According to the whitepaper, 25% of the 1,000,000,000 tokens will be available for a a public sale in Q2 2018. The public token sale will accept NEO and GAS. The team says all distributed tokens will use a tiered vesting system to ensure the sale is not exploited for fast returns.
Moonlight’s team is well-built out and has a number of professionals in development, cryptocurrency, and programming. Many team members are associated with City of Zion, which is a well-known NEO development team. Moonlight co-founder Tyler B. Adams is a co-founder for City of Zion, and blockchain developer Chris Birmingham is a City of Zion Developer.
Advisors include Ethan Fast, creator of the NEO wallet and Nathaniel Walpole, the designer of NeoScan.
The Moonlight team has secured a number of high-level partnerships. Partners include City of Zion, nOS, which is an operating system that is designed to interact with blockchains. Team members from nOS are set to build several features and modules for Moonlight.
Other partners include the VDT network, which is a decentralized computer system for generated imagery.
