"Why do we care about Curation Markets? What do they hope to accomplish?

At their core, they enable coordinated collaboration - the ability to earn value from what we co-create by utilizing the collective knowledge and resources of the commons effectively.

Subsets of curation markets include TCRs and curved bonding. And their uses can range from meme spotting to funding cutting-edge pharmaceutical research.

Curation markets were presented as an early concept in 2016 but really started gaining traction in 2017 among researchers, token engineers, and developers. The Curation Markets Gitter, started by Simon, has become an open-source online platform for us to connect and to discuss ideas. And, we have set up this call to take that a step further and build up the curation markets community!

The goal is to enable faster growth of new and emerging concepts through collaboration. This is a community-initiated effort aimed at bringing together the broader global group of curation market enthusiasts in-person and in an independent setting.
