What is the Problem ?

The current structure offers limited ability for the gig worker to control and make use of the information that verifies her reputation. This leads to unnecessarily high costs for the gig worker when searching for work in other contexts.

Problem 2:
Inefficient market with high barriers to entry for new platforms
