In 100-years, the 1800s cranked banger will still work after an engine recondition and an oil change. The Tesla, you won’t be so lucky with. All the electrics will need replacing due to capacitors expanding and plastic and rubber insulation on wires perishing. The battery will have also expanded, leaked, and caused a major bio-hazard.
I’ll take the 1800s banger since it will hold its value better.
I’m not sure I share your sentiments about Fiverr, I’m happy enough. I could have more orders, However, the recent lull has allowed me to up prices and overhaul my business. I’m now getting better clients and some killer reviews as a result.
The IPO is a strange one. I don’t know why people expect an IPO to result in drastic improvements. Really going public is just a money-spinner. The Fiverr IPO probably came at the right time in this respect.
Confidence in other tech companies like We Work is now plummeting and even Tesla shares are only worth however well-received Elon Musks latest Tweets are.
Well, Fiverr still dominates the grab and go freelance service market. Other platforms get around compression of video and audio by letting sellers embed videos from Youtube. The catch there is that it makes it ridiculously easy for anyone to misrepresent themselves. i.e. I could embed one of your YT videos in my gig and say your voice is mine.
Fiverr is definitely not an easy ride. However, it does help to look at the positives and how you can leverage these in your favor, rather than stress over the negatives.
