Airbnb and the Hotel Industry in Warsaw: An Example of the Sharing Economy?

( European Commission 2015 ). By mitigating moral hazard and reducing transaction risk, online platforms not only enable business-to-consumer transactions, but also support direct consumer-to-consumer transactions between peers.

Crowdfunding in the Wider Perspective Investment Crowdfunding: Competition Between Regulations, Institutions, and Economic Freedom


The aim of this article is to present Investment Crowdfunding (ICF) in a perspective wider than merely as a new form of financing a certain category of business ventures. Selected aspects of ICF as a phenomenon that is a manifestation of the conflict between economic freedom and regulations and financial market institutions will be emphasized. New concepts of the part of the modern economy in the period of digitization, referred to as the collaborative economy, mesh economy, or sharing economy, should also be taken into account. The issues of excessive and restrictive regulation of the financial market will be presented in this context, as well as the constraints and risk factors of ICF operation and the Polish ICF experience.

The study hypothesises that Investment Crowdfunding is a viable alternative for financing micro and small economic projects, if compared to the traditional and over-regulated forms of financing. The usefulness of Investment Crowdfunding concerns primarily economic projects of the start-up category. The study uses the following research methods: critical analysis of the literature of the issue, descriptive and comparative analysis, case study, and deduction.

The theoretical considerations and examples presented in the article should be treated with appropriate research caution. However, they make it possible to positively verify the hypothesis.

Apart of external crowdsourcing through contests, internal crowdsourcing is used and is a part of an
