Markets --- in their ideal form --- naturally represent Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems: market participants can be both client {it and} server when exchanging offers, general messages, or goods. They can directly address each other, and interact in a decentralized and autonomous fashion. Most market implementations in history, however, were far from this ideal form.
