I've done a project on RentaCoder (as seller) even though it was not
Python-related. I needed to do quite a bit of search to find a suitable
project. As in, something quick, that I could do in my spare time. What
I found funny is that, with only one project, I've got a better ranking
than +90% of the site's registered coders. They're either not bothering
to get projects after registration or are not completing them
successfully.

There are many projects that do not have a clear scope or are underpaid
($50 for an Amazon-clone). And there are people taking those.

In Brazil, $100 is what programmers earn for two days worth of work, on
average. Even then, I don't even try to compete with Indians, as they
are basically asking for spare change.
