Bilateral P2P

Cost-conscious consumers choose to barter and swap rather than shop

Implications - Innovative networks that serve as a marketplace for individuals to barter products and services with peers are being embraced by consumers. Whether to access meaningful work by providing skilled services or to turn unused goods into alternate revenue, such platforms create a space dedicated to collaborative consumption that can strengthen communities and decentralize capital. These peer-to-peer networks speak to the role of the sharing economy in shaping interactions between consumers, as opposed to brands.
