Here are the screenshots of the home pages of the five first marketplaces. 

#1 https://www.huego.io/ Book Athletic Spaces. Anytime. Anywhere.

#2 https://www.quibloo.com/ Probably a testing general purpose marketplace. It doesn't look very active.

#3 https://www.efravel.com/ Car sharing / free rental marketplace (owners looking for someone to drive their car from A to B vs travellers looking for a cheap / free way to travel from A to B).

#4 https://www.gamedevmentors.com/ 1-on-1 game development mentoring.

#5 https://www.myhifi24.com/ Hi Fi products buy & sell marketplace

myhifi24 sharetribe marketplace

#1, Huego, according to MyIP.ms, would have (August 2019) a traffic of around 4,000 visitors per day. #5, MyHIFI24, < 200 visitors per day.

These are rather small numbers, reminding us - if needed - that the hard work of developing a marketplace starts when the website goes live.

You have to raise the awareness around the service, both on the demand and supply sides. In my opinion, the smartest project among the five examples listed above is probably Game Dev Mentors, focused on a very specific niche. It could attract a decent following. 

Bear in mind that some examples listed in the top 20 table no longer exist (e.g. ventring.com or gurutakeout.com). 

This one https://www.thequiver.com/, a marketplace to exchange surfboards and paddle boards, is listed by Sharetribe among its success stories. In early August 2019, it's ranked 2,185,169 on Alexa, which means it might have anywhere between 100 and 200 visitors per day.

The traffic of the marketplaces on this IP starts slightly lower than the ones on 52.202.50.54.

The first site of the table, https://www.bighomiemarketplace.com/, has around 1,350 visitors per day, according to MyIp.ms

BigHomie Marketplace Sharetribe

#2 https://www.littlexchanges.com/ generates around 900 visits per day. 
#3 https://www.helpondemand.global/ attracts around 200 visitors per day (or less).
#4 https://www.simplelots.com/ has around 200 daily users (or less).
#5 https://www.bookaprovider.com doesn't exist anymore...

This one https://www.rockndoze.com/ ranked #23 doesn't have a lot of traffic but the idea is interesting, even if it has a limited scope "a home sharing platform for touring musicians, bands and music fans".  It could be a sub-category on AirBnB... 

Marketplaces are undoubtedly a popular endeavour among online entrepreneurs but, as you can deduct from the rather small traffic numbers of all these examples, it's a very tough game. Be prepared to hustle to build a sizeable audience!
