The 'Sharehive' freelance marketplace comes as a modern way for individuals to barter for things they might need using their existing skillset. The platform works by having users utilize their skills to barter for something that they might be in the market for; this could be a specific good or service that they're looking to obtain. While focused on bartering, users can also buy skills from others to help support their craft without having to track down the kind of professional they're looking for the old-fashioned way.

The 'Sharehive' freelance marketplace identifies how consumers are responding to the high costs of goods and service by reverting to a bartering system to benefit both sides of the transaction for a more community focused market.
