Abstract

We report of a new crowdsourcing work paradigm that we came across while interviewing crowd-workers in China mid-May 2019 - that of companies that solely focus in undertaking and doing crowdsourcing tasks en masse. In addition, we discuss why such companies emerged recently, and how it afects the crowdsourcing landscape in China. With this work we highlight an important change in the rapidly changing crowdsourcing landscape of China that merits more research in the future.
