Thanks!
Yeah toptal is an intresting one, since you have to go through an interview process to get accepted, I had it scheduled but i missed it, so now I have to wait for 6months to be eligible to go through it again.
If you have the skill and put the effort to present yourself and your projects you will succeeded. Before i got my first project i was bidding for weeks every day twice a day. Good luck in your freelance journey!

toptal is really tough for real i read one of the toptal developer experience there which is also a frequent dev.to article creator carlos russo he basically going from zero to toptal not in a matter of second but a series of hardwork but really after you get in to the toptal its just look like you work full time coz you work in a company like IBM for example but yeah toptal is just for 1% only but worth a try tho

Yeah it’s just a different kind of marketplace, and i am definitely going to give it a go again when 6 months passes. there was another marketplace like toptal which name i don’t remember now, but they also heavily vet the freelancers, the big thing i remember they promise minimum rate of 75$ an hour

probably crossover? damn $75 an hour ? i wonder how the work would be coz when i got like $750 fixed project in freelancer or even $2000 project the project kinda like royal rumble in wwe you know what i mean? like impossible to even be solved you know but yeah freelance really has some pros and cons along the way just keep on going bro!
