There’s a lot of promise in this concept of an Ownership Economy: basically networks and digital organizations that are owned and operated by the users of those platforms.
Rarible is an early pioneer in this model, and many of the buyers/sellers on rarible.com are ideal candidates for this Ownership Economy model. But what we are seeing in practice is that the overwhelming majority of RARI recipients sell their RARI upon receiving them. The end result of that is that instead of being user owned, it is speculator / investor owned, just like traditional companies.
Are all ownership economy projects going to follow this path?
Is this a problem?
If it is, how can we get creators and collectors holding their token more?
Food for thought, would love to hear your ideas!
