How does Emoon work?
The Emoon marketplace works like a consignment store. If you want to sell an asset, you approve Emoon to broker the transaction with a buyer of your asset, similar to how you might take an item to a consignment store to try to sell your item.
If someone buys your item, Emoon transfers the ownership of the asset to the buyer and sends funds from the sale to your account. This transfer of ownership is atomic and is handled by a smart contract on the blockchain.
At any time, you can cancel your listing and take your item off the market, no longer allowing Emoon to sell your asset.
As a buyer, you don't have to worry about a seller's reputation or the seller not delivering your item because the transaction is brokered by the blockchain.
