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

The “peer-to-peer economy” has increased extensively and suffered transformations due to the development of giant commercial players such as Airbnb. The growth of this tourist property-renting website between individuals is indeed quite impressive.

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.
