Looks like Raspberry Pi Trading is planning for a listing:

Wonder what this means for the RPi foundation and the community?

SiliconWizard:
This is weird.

"Obviously, the $45m we raised in September takes away some of the urgency around figuring out how we fund the future."

So they lose money on the product? What price do they need to raise it to to actually break even.
People are paying $80-150 for pi 4 4GB on ebay, wonder if that is enough to not have to constantly raise money.

Are people actually paying that much?

Are they paying that much because they can't get the things brand new from proper vendors and instead resort to the secondary market?

Yes to both.
Looks like Beaglebone black 4GB goes for $55, so, that would probably be the main competition. But I think they've built so much of a brand awareness that they can charge a premium.
