Are the kids playing Roblox games being exploited?

Do you have a young child playing Roblox games through a Corporation being valued at more than $45 billion?

Roblox hosts millions of user-created games of multiple genres, coded in the programming language ‘Lua’. It allows users to program games and play games created by other users. Roblox is free-to-play, with all the tools, educational videos and in-game purchases available using Roblox’s own virtual currency called “Robux”. They also call the games available as ‘experiences’ otherwise they legally cannot promote the games through the Apple store.

Lots of kids use the platform to start on their road to becoming a developer but as this People Make Games  YouTube video asks, are the kids who are making the vast majority of its content being taken advantage of whilst Roblox is making all the money?
