Three days ago a new freelancer’s marketplace was launched called Fivebucks.com, a platform that allows people to purchase and sell services for only $5. The new website has seen an influx of listings since it launched and all the payments, both inbound and outbound, utilize the peer-to-peer cryptocurrency bitcoin cash.
Every Service on Fivebucks.com is Just Five Dollars in Bitcoin Cash
This week a new freelancer’s marketplace has launched that allows people to list and complete a wide array of services for only five bucks.

The eight sections of listings include tech, fun & lifestyle, business, digital marketing, graphics and design, writing and translation, video & animation, music & audio, programming.
The creators of Fivebucks explain the charity @eatbch inspired them to launch a platform that bolsters the gig economy with just a small fraction of bitcoin cash (BCH). “Thanks to bitcoin cash, anyone with an internet connection can get paid for their work directly without intermediaries and regardless of where they are from,” explain the Fivebucks founders.
All payments and seller payouts are done in bitcoin cash — Sellers can withdraw their earnings in bitcoin cash in one click.
Fivebucks Co-Founder: ‘Bitcoin Cash Is the Only Major Crypto That Is Reliable as Digital Peer-to-Peer Cash’
At the moment, Fivebucks has 85 active listings, and 166 sellers within the marketplace. News.Bitcoin.com spoke with the co-founder of Fivebucks.com and he explained why the website was created and more importantly why the team chose to utilize BCH payments for marketplace services.
“[We started Fivebucks.com] to create something that is competitive, offers value and fosters BCH adoption — The site, in my opinion, generates incentives both for sellers and buyers to start using bitcoin cash — I like to think of Fivebucks as an adoption engine,” the co-founder of Fivebucks.com details. “On one hand it incentivises business owners in first world countries (but not only) to learn how to use bitcoin cash so they can save money and outsource small tasks for cheap.”
At the same time, it incentivises freelancers (from poor countries but not only) to learn how to use bitcoin cash because there will always be demand for $5 listings. [We decided to use bitcoin cash] because it is the only major crypto that is reliable as digital peer-to-peer cash.
Right now you can buy an assortment of interesting services for only five dollars in BCH per service which includes getting a cartoon portrait drawn, debugging python script, tarot reading, vector graphics, and even someone who will say anything you want on video for only five bucks. The creators of the freelancer’s marketplace also have published a walkthrough on the social media platform Yours.org called “Advice for Sellers” which gives a rundown of ways people can improve their chances of selling on the platform.
