You might find CIYAM Open interesting for this exact idea (http://ciyam.org/open) - it has already been running for nearly two years and has helped quite a few people do freelancing work for BTC (and now supports other cryptos as well).

The website "look" was designed by Enej Pungercar (who designed Bitstamp) and his contributions can be found in the list of completed tasks (as well as in the repo at https://github.com/ciyam/ciyam).

The entire system is open source so it's not in *competition* with anything else (so welcome to just study it for ideas that might help your own or even it clone it if you are technically proficient enough).

With CIYAM anyone can create 100% generated C++ web applications in literally minutes.

I am freelance writer too. But I refused to take BTC as a payment and still do. Don't have the guts to accept it I guess. But might accept in the future.

It's understandable and I've certainly found with running CIYAM Open that the *enthusiasm* drops when the USD exchange rate drops (so I have come to the conclusion that the idea is still *years ahead of its time*).

IMO the way of the future is going to be decentralised also.

Or perhaps the business model is flawed, we at Bitlancers hedge all freelancers money against USD, thus volitality is only an issue for a short period.

I don't know how I'd feel about actually getting paid in bitcoins. I think it'd be too risky to take all of it in btc, but maybe a small percentage of it instead. I like to buy a little everymonth but I decide at the time and depends on the market rate.

I do offer USD instead of BTC actually - so I don't think that is the issue.

So we're seeing a trend in rising self-employed individuals which is bound to rise by year and we also see a trend of rising BTC use, so I am curious is there any overlap? I have personally freelanced before and getting paid in BTC was my preferred method since you can cashouts locally without any hassles and without the employer scamming you.

My only problems while freelancing were scammers and lack of professionals which I aim to solve in a new freelancer venue I've started here: (sorry for the shameless plug  Tongue)

In any case I am wondering how the future looks for fellow self-employed professionals, will most people be working from home in the nearest hundred years with autonomous businesses appearing?

Yes, I'm considering doing part time jobs on BTC related works.

Do something interesting, while being the boss of oneself will make us feel so much better!

Freelancing is harder than it seems, being the one that kicks yourself in the butt is hard.

Just about all of the work you can do over the Internet can also be done by a Chinese or Indian person over the Internet. Someone who can live off of a few hundred dollars a year.

Yes, I will definitely work for Bitcoins. In fact, I already am. The only downside is if you agree to a fee in Bitcoin, the price could drop drastically by the time the project is complete and the terms can't be adjusted.

Why is the obvious answer to this post not "yes" due to saving hundreds a month on taxes. or lack of taxes

A large portion of both Indians and Chinese are scammers, not to mention that they lack the programming skills or the expertise to start an actual business, have you ever seen code written by a Chinese? The ones that are talented are in Sillicon Valley.

If my Job offered a choice between Bitcoins and FIAT, I would most definitely take Bitcoin. I wish they all gave us a choice. Would be cool to see the stats on it.
