How the sharing economy is changing the world?

Today our economy is based on the sharing economy.

The sharing economy has spread thanks to new technologies like social, geo-localization, mobile marketing.

What is sharing economy

The “Sharing Economyis an economic model that promotes forms of consumption based on use rather than on acquisition and access rather than ownership.
Attention to the environment and the desire to reduce its environmental impact are also factors that have pushed people to adopt sharing, collaboration and reuse practices.
Furthermore, the global economic crisis of 2008 questioned the traditional postulates of economic and social growth and the entire capitalist system, prompting people to wonder what they really needed.
The success of the sharing economy is therefore partly linked to the possibilities that this new approach offers in terms of reducing consumption and earning opportunities.

Sharing economy examples

The most famous model of sharing economy is Peer-to-Peer (P2P), which provides peer-to-peer relationships in the exchange / sale of products and services and which can be considered the most common model of sharing in the collaborative economy .

The first P2P market model was introduced even in the 1990s by Ebay or Napster in terms of music and allowed people to share, sell or give away their goods directly to other people without intermediaries.

Some of today’s most important realities are based on the concept of sharing:

See for example https://www.blablacar.it for ride a car, https://www.airbnb.it to find accommodation for a few days, https://it.sailsquare.com for a holiday relax in the boat.

We also have some very interesting realities that are conquering the market like Togetherprice.com or Fitprime.com.

Last Month, Togheter Price closed a 630 thousand euro capital increase by Samaipata Ventures, an international venture capital fund based in Madrid, which was also attended by LVenture Group, already a shareholder of the startup.

One thing is clear: the future is sharing.
