Louisville-based Keepio describes their service as providing a fast and easy way for you to track what you own with complete control of your privacy. You can also share and swap items and collections with your trusted friends on Facebook and Twitter without any transaction fees!
I would try to explain Keepio in my own words, aside from saying that I think the idea has great potential; but I'll leave it to KillerStartups to do that. They did a great job of summarizing Keepio's key features:
Keepio is a platform for keeping track of all your belongings. People can build up lists detailing their personal collections, and apply the privacy settings that they want to these. They can make their lists visible to all and sundry, or they can make them visible to just a selected handful of friends.
And there is more to the site than that, as Keepio doubles as a marketplace where users can proceed to part ways with anything on their lists. People can make offers on the items that others feature in their collections, and loans are allowed. That is, not everything will be bough and sold. Items can actually be freely swapped and traded.
On the other hand, it is even possible to build an online store (a la eBay) and put wares for sale in such a direct way.
