Sumary of A marketplace is offering developers the chance to sell their weekend projects for up to $5,000 so somebody else can turn them into businesses:
- Tiny Acquisitions lets developers sell their side projects for up to $5,000. The web app was the #3 “Product of the Day” on Product Hunt this week.
- Tiny Acquisitions, a marketplace where developers can sell their side projects for up to $5,000, debuted on Product Hunt this week and landed #3 Product of the Day within 24 hours.
- It allows developers to quickly liquidate a weekend project and negotiate terms with the highest bidder so long as the price is no more than $5,000. Tiny Acquisitions allows creators to give new life to their projects whether they wish to move on to something new or simply don’t have the time to maintain them.
- “From unicorn to the tiny, there is no excuse not to sell what you’ve built,” one Product Hunt user commented on the launch.
- “Stephen Campbell, the 28-year-old creator of Tiny Acquisitions, said the idea came to him in April when he realized there were very few options for indie developers to sell their side projects for a small, but significant, amount of cash.
- “The service first launched at the end of May and landed 88 active projects up for sale after scoring the #1 spot on Y-Combinator-owned Hacker News in June.
- Since its Product Hunt launch, Tiny Acquisitions has already secured 13 new projects.
- $5k win is pretty decent here in the US to keep you going but in Jamaica or India it’s serious money,” Karthik Puvvada said, the person who endorsed Tiny Acquisitions on Product Hunt.
