Crossover Network Effects

As I’ve spent more time building marketplaces and advising other marketplace founders, I’ve observed a phenomenon that isn’t common across all marketplaces. I’ve tried searching for any existing writing and thus far have been unable to find a definition for it so I decided to take a stab at defining it myself. I’m calling them crossover network effects: When supply becomes demand in a marketplace and demand becomes supply.
