Send a proposal

After some message back and forth, you come across Victor who is a Spanish tutor.

Great! You offer to bake him a cake for an upcoming birthday. But...one cake in return for multiple Spanish lessons seems a little unfair value wise.

To make the deal “fair”, you can add tokens on top of your offer. Victor can use the tokens to make future deals he makes with others “fair”.

Propose deals; which skills can you offer?
