Just launched my first product loadping.com -a simple uptime monitoring API
I am considering to build another marketplace for side projects like 1kprojects.com but 100% free. For everyone that doesn't know how they make money, they try to charge you $80 if you just want to respond to people interested in your projects. There is no guarantee your project even sells while you already paid their fee.
Basically they take advantage of users sending have assed requests like 'I am interested, pls tell me more' to trick the sellers into paying them their fee in hopes that their project actually gets acquired.
Do you think a 100% free marketplace without bullsh*t like this would offer enough value to get the same interest? My motivation and only way to profit from it would be to buy/sell projects on it as well.
