One time, I asked like seven different people for one week and find nobody who's willing to accept work. I work for low pay, but I still find nobody willing to employ me.

The economy is too small, worth only 5 million BTC. I wish I can support myself entirely on bitcoin.  Undecided

Yep. However some coders are finding good work. But they are very good.

I have been making some bounties to try and encourage some work, however they also have seen poor uptake.

I think that we are in a 'everyone has a secret project' stage now, I think that this will last for a little while.  Shocked

One off NP-Hard.

Instead of trying to get work or freelance, why don't you build something and then try to sell it for btc?

There are loads of ideas, because bitcoin is sooooooo young, it's economy doesn't even have the basic infrastructure. The builders of this infrastructure are going to make it big once bitcoin becomes more mainstream.
