Centralized intermediaries often charge 20-30% in transaction fees. Airbnb grossed $2.6B in fees in 2017, while Uber took home a monumental $11.8B in fees in 2018. Total sharing economy fees are expected to cross $40B by 2020.
By removing the middlemen, Origin removes these fees. Buyers and sellers can now share the savings from the fees that are no longer paid to traditional marketplace operators.
