Digital Platforms and the Intensive Marketization of the Second-Hand Clothing Market

Prior works on market dynamics investigate the role of humans and nonhumans in market (de)formation. We complement them by showing how the emergence of digital platforms transforms existing amateur-to-amateur markets. Our ethnographic data shows that digital platforms are intensive marketization devices amplifying competition between users while excluding less efficient ones.
