(What Am I Trading?)
Since Spectrum is a centralized service, then they can ban/censor content. Thus what you trade is your freedom of expression to their internal rules.
The internet was built for communities. But, as the web has changed and improved radically, community software has hardly improved since the heyday of messageboards and IRC. Spectrum makes it easy to grow safe, successful online communities that are built to last.

Finally, chat that scales
We’ve taken the best features of modern chat platforms and old-school forums and smashed them together into a format that makes it easy scale to any size – even across timezones.
Location, location, location
Conversations and communities on Spectrum are public, permalinked, and search engine optimized by default which makes it easy for new members to find and join your community.
Every community, only one account
Skip managing multiple credentials and playing whack-a-mole with DMs and notifications, Spectrum lets you join as many communities as you want with only one account.
Granular controls for nuanced situations
We give you fine-grained solutions to moderation issues via individual locking, blocking, and deletion controls for each thread, message, and member in your community. We also give every community automated toxicity monitoring and spam prevention by default.
Real members. Real reputation.
With Spectrum’s Rep system, you can see how active and constructive a member is in your community – and globally across communities – which makes it simple to figure out if an issue is a trend or an isolated incident.
