Hi Li and Katie! Thanks for the well structured arguments plus proposed framework for marketplace structuring. Low-key refreshing to see that not all marketplace solutions converge to the adoptoin of blockchain tech haha (we all in - gm wagmi tungsten etc etc - but not for now..)

As someone who's building a fitness and wellness marketplace in Hong Kong, I'm wondering what are some challenges you foresee once a platform has adopted the pillars you propose; namely, ownership, autonomy, and representation?

What are some caveats and/or drawbacks you can think of? Will it be harder to raise capital? Hire employees? Maybe creators will vote for features that don't benefit the platform's survival (because they don't have inside information), forcing the platform overlords to veto a majority vote, thereby losing legitimacy bringing us back to the vicious cycle? Who knows...
