Freelancer websites “thriving” through the crisis

The ongoing pandemic has led to an exponential rise in the use of freelance sites, according to reports from Bloomberg. Upwork noted a 50 per cent increase in user registrations since mid-March, while saw a 30 per cent increase in sign-ups for US freelancers. In addition, more than 24,000 people are on the waiting list to join Braintrust, which offers projects for large companies such as Nestle.
