Recently, the Karrot has gained popularity amongst Korean. Its Monthly Active Users exceeded over ten million in late September: Ten million is about one-fifth of Korean population. Now the Karrot is one of most successful start-up companies in Korea. Then, what is it?

It’s a mobile buy and sell application for locals. The listing is quite reliable because users are verified by the GPS whether they are from the same neighborhood or not. This simple idea made a lot of changes. First of all, delivery-cost saving. Both seller and buyer are living close, they just meet up with each other. After exchanges, the users can rate one another under the name of ‘Manner Temperature’, starting at 36.5 degree Celcius. If it is under 36.5, that means a cold-blooded person, right? Karrot is now becoming a community for locals. They are posting anything: sharing puppy photos, local event news, lost and found.

A while ago, the tap ‘Near Me’ was adopted. They have listings such as restaurants, stores, and part-time jobs. That reflects that Karrot became a social platform for locals and it works.
