MercadoLibre (literally the Free Market) reported numbers yesterday and revenue was up 18% year over year. Gross merchandise volume increased 15.2% and items sold jumped 38.8% year-over-year to 85.4M. This is the Amazon-like growth play for 2030. The company is currently valued at $15 billion, 10x sales, but in 12 years (2030 is so close) the sales could surpass the current cap.
