A third of UK freelancers surveyed say that they see opportunities of incorporating AI into their work while 34% would include AR.
According to Daily Record, Peggy de Lange, VP of International Expansion at Fiverr, said: “Following the pandemic, UK entrepreneurial spirit continues to shine through as savvy online freelancers turn new digital trends into earning potential.
“As with all new technologies, future widespread adoption is uncertain but online marketplaces like Fiverr have an important role to play in providing a platform for freelancers to pivot their services around these trends, during a time of sky-rocketing growth.”
Similarly across the pond, Fiverr found that 64% of US-based freelancers have profited from selling NFT services. The company partnered with Censuswide to survey over 1000 US freelancers on their perspectives on NFTs and the metaverse.
48% of the respondents surveyed have profited from the sale of metaverse-related services. Like the UK freelancers, 83% of US freelance respondents said that they plan to adapt their current offerings based on the growth they’ve seen in the Web3 space.
54% of US freelancers said that they can see themselves earning an additional $2,600 to $5,200 per month by monetising their blockchain-related skills.
The survey also found that males feel they have a higher earning potential, with 40% saying they foresee earning an estimated $2,600 to $3,900 more a month through NFT and metaverse-related services while only 28% of female freelancers feel the same.
However, women are out-earning men in the metaverse, with 61% of female freelancers claiming to have earned from metaverse-related services compared to 45% of male freelancers.
