Milestone Launches Marketplace Where Nothing Is For Sale

By: IPVM Team, Published on Feb 26, 2019

The central announcement at Milestone's annual conference MIPS is Marketplace, which Milestone compared to Uber and Match.com for its ability to bring buyers and sellers together.

The major distinction from other 'marketplaces' like Uber or Match.com is that nothing is for sale in the Milestone Marketplace, nor is there any indication when Milestone will enable such sales. However, there was a physical marketplace booth at the show:

In this note, we examine the Milestone Marketplace, what strengths it has in building one and challenges it faces in accomplishing this.
