The IPv4 marketplace is a place where people can buy and sell IPv4 addresses. This is a relatively new concept, and it's still evolving. Here's how it works.


IPv4 addresses are assigned by Internet service providers (ISP) to their subscribers. When a subscriber cancels their service, the ISP can release the address back into the pool of available addresses.


These addresses are then made available for purchase on the IPv4 marketplace. The marketplaces are similar to auction sites, and the prices for IPv4 addresses can vary widely.


IPv4 addresses are a finite resource, and as the demand for them increases, so does the price. The IPv4 marketplace provides a way for businesses and individuals to get the IPv4 addresses they need.
