This tutorial guides you on how to get paid at Grindery. The Grindery payment platform combines the strength of multiple technologies to produce a seamless, fully integrated and decentralized payments process for DAO to user, user to user, DAO to DAO or any combination where a contractual relationship exists that requires a payment. With this, members of a DAO can set up contracts, submit payment requests, review requests made by others, get contracts and requests approved, sign in Gnosis Safe, receive crypto payment and off-ramp to fiat.

Public review 

But while you wait, you can review all contracts and payment requests created by other members of your DAO. This peer review process makes everything transparent and helps during the approval of payment requests. Depending on what’s obtainable at your DAO, you can comment on each request, commend where necessary and flag any wrong request you notice. 
Afterwards, the payment request is approved and triggered by an internal control model that leverages the Gnosis Safe governance rules. You do not need to worry about this process as a freelancer as it’s entirely done by the admins. However, you can learn about the process here . 

Receive payment and off-ramp to fiat 

Finally, you will receive the crypto amount approved and paid into your wallet address and can off-ramp it to fiat. You need an exchange account to change your crypto to fiat. Meanwhile, your choice of crypto exchange largely depends on your jurisdiction and what is available to you. A few options are listed below, visit the links to learn how to transfer crypto from MetaMask to the respective exchanges.
