2018-2020, Airbnb and others: End of the gold rush, possible turning point

Despite this dizzying curve as well as the very promising future foreseen for the peer-to-peer economy, we anticipate that the gold rush is now a thing of the past[1] for those companies and that their forecasts are far from being as flourishing as we might imagine.
