- Reputation and payments for peer-to-peer marketplaces
Ink can be integrated into new or existing marketplaces and can also be used in marketplaces that don't directly handle payments (eg, Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace). For sellers, accepting Ink builds up their public reputation, which allows them to start selling quickly on new
marketplaces without needing to build reputation from scratch. Buyers can view any seller's reputation across multiple marketplaces and confidently pay using either automated or human-mediated escrow contracts. Payments can be made and received natively using the Ink Protocol Token (XNK) or converted easily to and from fiat currencies like USD.
