What are the main problems faced by participants of current P2P marketplace platform models?

In a previous blog post, we explored how Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) can help solve many of the issues experienced by participants of the sharing economy. To recap; currently, we are in the middle of a global digital transformation; new advances in technology have been able to increase the speed and flow of data. This has resulted in a shift away from the top-down, centralized economic models of the industrial age, and instead, we are exploring new decentralized models. P2P marketplaces have become very popular for both buyers/sellers of products and services; and while they have created a ‘micromarket’ which fosters a stable, healthy, and competitive ecosystem. There are still many problems and issues faced by participants of current peer-to-peer models. We briefly mentioned these in the previous blog but thought it would be helpful to unpack some of these problems in more detail.
