As announced yesterday during our TGO live stream, we are super excited to share the news about our partnership with Sharetribe!

We will be integrating Ink Protocol’s transaction and reputation systems into Sharetribe’s new Flex platform, allowing buyers and sellers to build up reputation and trade safely across all the marketplaces on Sharetribe and beyond. Buyers can take advantage of features such as decentralized escrow and dispute resolution, while sellers can bring their existing reputation with them or start earning new public reputation that can be used on any platform.

We first learned about Sharetribe while working on Listia and have been big fans of their platform from the very beginning. The new Sharetribe Flex product is a huge step in making marketplaces easier to create and use. Now anyone can build their own Etsy, Airbnb, or eBay for a specific vertical or community quickly and easily. The Ink Protocol integration takes it one step further by allowing any buyer or seller to transact safely, while earning public reputation that can be used everywhere, including outside of Sharetribe or Listia.

Our vision is to create a globally trusted peer-to-peer transaction system that can be used on any platform, and this partnership is another big step in achieving that goal. We are very proud and honored to be working alongside companies like Sharetribe, who are building the foundation to create marketplaces for just about anything!
