Pay to play is a phrase with that sounds fine, but has a not so great dimension
(especially in politics) relating to or denoting a situation in which payment is demanded, often illegally, from those wishing to take part in a particular business activity.
Yes, we are talking about corruption.
But outside of this dubious area, “pay to play” has a more socially constructive use – getting freelancers paid. If users of services pay in before work is done, freelancers have a better chance thta the money will flow to them after the work is done. All you need is an excrowsystem.
That is where Felix comes in. It is a platform that allows freelancers to easily invoice off balances. Amounts are automatically transfered after an invoice is submitted and no objection is made within 48 hours. Nice.
And I expect that we will see a lot more of these types of platforms Why? More folks will earn money this way and they will need systems that make the money flow smoothly.
