Our evolution has revolved around the foundation of established trade. History is comprised of empires, governing societies & trading entities built on the foundation of barter & exchange services within marketplaces. Times have drastically changed since these initial market models & prior methods practiced are deprecated in relation to the level of globalization at play today.
Online marketplaces heavily lean on supporting particular segments within an ecosystem (whether it be second-hand products, hand-crafted goods, drop-shipped items, etc.). They do not provide mutually beneficial ways to incentivize every party involved within the transaction cycle. They’re built to support infrastructures from legacy operation methods that were intended to succeed with businesses initially migrating online. The global phenomena that is social media has evolved the way we interact & do business with one-another. Content discovery & social interactions are not accounted for properly & a new set of standards need to be incorporated properly into marketplaces.
