Just built The Creative Stock Exchange in 4 hours on Notion. Does it have potential?

Too many side hustles? Graveyard of half baked projects? Now you can sell your side hustle on The Creative Stock Exchange!


Some questions for you -- would you post a project on here? Would you buy a project on here? Why or why not? Please comment with feedback!

I hope that someday people will create things intended for sale on the Creative Stock Exchange. But in the meantime, I anticipate it to be comprised of projects that creators need to sunset.

p.s. I had to populate the database with content, so I used a few IndieHacker projects that mentioned "selling" or "sunsetting". As the note says, these will disappear as people submit real projects.

    I like the idea! But I think you’ll struggle with adverse selection. Meaning the worst side hustles will be the ones listed.

    But I could be wrong! Maybe side hustles that make a little bit of $?

      Yep, I think the selection quality will be a challenge. I think the market to start with is $0-$500 projects that someone wants to pass off instead of abandoning. One man's trash is another man's treasure, right?

        I like it! Kind of like a micro version of microaquire 😁
