It is expected that this industry employs approximately 40–42 million workers worldwide while generating global revenue of $186 billion annually. Around 1 in 5 men have ever ordered a sex service. Despite the size of the sex work market, current regulatory efforts from governments are inefficient for safe execution of this profession.
Despite positive legal actions from many governments towards regulation or at least decriminalization of the sex work, huge problems stay unresolved. The invention of the Blockchain and dApps gives us new way of fighting with human trafficking, spreading of STDs or preventing of false rape accusations.
HUSSY.io is concerned with the prevention of human trafficking and minimizing the spreading of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The value proposition is to create a platform and to provide incentives for sex workers around the globe for safe execution of their profession. We have identified that the root cause of most problems associated with sex work lies in a social stigma toward the participants, leading to a contradicting discrepancy between the need for privacy and trustworthiness. The solution we offer provides anonymized but verifiable KYC compliance, professional health certification and Proof of Consent stored on the Blockchain.
In HUSSY.io, we believe in a future, where all women are in control of their own sexuality, including consensual exchange of money for sex with ability to set a fair price, timing and circumstances of the sexual act. Furthermore, sex work not only empowers women, but it provides women with greater opportunities for financial advancement. Women who have chosen to enter the sex work should not be looked down upon and should not have their choice considered to be lesser than another type of socially accepted employment. The still-present social stigma in society towards sex workers and their clients is the root cause of many problems associated with the sex work.
One of the major features of the HUSSY.io platform is so called flexible fee schedule. Service providers can advertise their services in the listing platform either for free or for an optional fee. However, the higher the fee is chosen by the service provider, the more often is the advertisement shown to the clients.
