The first deal made on the platform was a purchase of a small sculpture. We had not advertised that sculpture in any way. We advertise neither paintings nor any other works of art but people still buy them, while other goods we have spent much money on, e.g. cars, bring no real customers to the platform.
At the same time, commission fees we charge on antiques, rare items, curiosities and artworks start from 20-25% and reach up to 45-50%. As soon as I understood this, I contacted art sellers and discovered that they are ready, though a bit cautious, to place their goods for sale. Upon hearing this, I contacted experts who specialise on the Asian markets and they readily supported the idea of selling rare and expensive goods as well as artworks for crypto.
Thus, the idea has begun to take shape. Will we continue to develop a marketplace for selling ordinary goods? Sure. At the same time, we will develop and may concentrate a bit more on selling rare and exclusive items. We will eventually create a large separate category with a separate domain for this.
This is our plan. And I already see how to implement it and earn thousands ETH to distribute among the token holders. Previously, I have been really careful about my statements, predictions and profit forecasts. Why? Because I had to assess the market first. We needed to collect empirical evidence: how much a client on the platform costs, how much money can a client bring and so on. Now we have answered all these questions and can make some predictions.
