Too Long; Didn't Read

iTalki is a two-sided marketplace for language learners and teachers. It's been my go-to place for connecting with tutors ever since. I was hooked from the beginning, and it’s done far more for one of my tutors in Argentina. The platform is able to process transactions efficiently across borders through a token system (not a decentralized one — just a SQL server) Parties in one country purchase intra-platform tokens with their native currency, and then, to pay for services, send the tokens (or “credits”) to the tutor they negotiate lessons.
