About YUGONOVA

Yugonova is a startup launched by a group of professionals from former Yugoslavian countries.

With the increase of robotics and automation, the nature of work is rapidly changing. Jobs as we know them today will not be the jobs of tomorrow. Majority of people will be freelancing in the upcoming decade. Freelancers and non-freelancers alike prioritize lifestyle over earnings, according to FIA. Millennials want more freedom to decide when and where they work and other generations want more compensation more for their experience.

Yet, accepting payments is one of the main issues for freelancers and they often report consistent problems with getting paid on time. Furthermore, if you work within a team, there is always a time-consuming process related to introducing clients to the team and making multiple payments to people in different countries with different payment preferences. Therefore, Yugonova is developing a payment and team management solution for cryptocurrency and fiat payments which provides safety, reduces friction, and helps freelancers and employers efficiently trade services for capital.

Yugonova is already working with industry experts with experience from major companies and institutions such as Societe Generale Bank, Dash, UNDP, Google etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

The idea for Yugonova was born out of our own experience of working as freelancers and the trials and tribulations of using existing payment solutions and presenting our work to potential clients.

Freelancing is a growing industry across the globe. In 2017, 57.3 million Americans were freelancing (36 percent of the U.S. workforce) and contributed approximately $1.4 trillion to the economy (Upwork/Freelance). This number has been growing ever since. It is projected that more than 80% of people will be freelancing in the upcoming decade.

Absolutely. In order to work on the mainstream adoption of digital payments, we need to enable online and brick-and-mortar sellers and service providers to accept payments in different cryptocurrencies without any pain points associated with the price and liquidity of these digital assets.
