Hi Alex,

i like the Idea i`m def +1 on adding this and seeing how it plays out,

Just to play devils advocate, are there any plans to adjust the cut
should the financial situation ever allow it at scale?

I`m also wondering if connecting parties in need of direct/indirect work
on/with the project with freelancers/companies surrounding the projects
is on the horizon.
