What is the difference between an Exchange and a Marketplace?

An Exchange is a platform where products and services are traded and transactions are recorded. The core function of an Exchange is to ensure fair and orderly trading and the efficient dissemination of price information for any products trading on that Exchange.


In The Blockchain Ecosystem, each of the 11 Industry Sectors will have its own Exchange.

Exchanges have various Marketplaces that facilitate millions of transactions in their perspective subcategories connecting consumers to buyers.

The members in a Marketplace are able to find different brands of products coming from multiple vendors, shops, product owners, and/or manufacturers who are showcased on the same platform.
