The Way Counos Escrow Works
For an elaborate explanation on how Counos Crypto Escrow works, let us suppose that for example you want to hire a project manager and you intend you pay him in Bitcoin. You cannot just find someone online and transfer the Bitcoin to him without being sure if he is a good project manager or even if he will complete the task that is required. And the other party, the project manager in this case, cannot trust you enough to start the work without being paid anything in advance, being assured that he will be paid when he delivers the project accurately and completely. This is where a Crypto escrow can be very beneficial. You can use Counos escrow to do this.
First, you go to Counos escrow website and create an account and get your full KYC . After signing in to Counos escrow you can go ahead and create a contract, a smart contract. Then you are able to pick a name for it and set all the terms of the contact. You specify all the things you want the project manager to do. Also, you specify that you want to pay with Bitcoin. For example you want to pay 0.3 Bitcoin for this job. You can create all of that detail and you can also create some instalments known as milestones. Then your contract is completed. After that you take a look at it to make sure everything is exactly as you want them. You enter the email of the other party, in this case the project manager you want to hire and start a contract with. You will also choose an escrow agent who will oversee the proper and legal completion of the contract.
After you approve the contract created, Counos escrow will send an email to the other party, which is the email address that you provided previously. It is okay if they are not a member of Counos Escrow. Because this contract invitation email will also include an invitation for them to create an account and do KYC in Counos Platform. After the other party accepts the invitation and enters the smart contract on Counos escrow, he can see all the details of the contract and the project. After the other party accepts the contract created, then the contract agent to approve and then the contract will get started.
When the contract is approved by all the three parties, the buyer, the seller, and the escrow agent, then for example in this case the project manager who is selling his services will start working because he is assured that he will get paid. You as the buyer, buying the services of a project manager, will also be assured that your project will be done properly. But how is this security and assurance guaranteed?
The assets in any contract in Counos escrow are held in a wallet known as the multi signature wallet or the MultiSig wallet. The buyer, the seller, and the escrow agent all have a key to this wallet and it cannot be accessed by one person. In order to withdraw from this wallet, two parties need to approve it.
This is how all sides of a Crypto escrow contract can be sure that they will receive the assets or services they were promised. In the case above, the buyer will be sure that his project will be done as promised, and the project manager is sure that when he delivers the project he will receive the payment. All of this process is overseen by the Crypto escrow and the escrow agent. Therefore, put your mind at ease and leave the security of your assets to Counos Escrow!
