The length in time an egg takes to hatch determines it's outcome value so a 30min egg wouldn't hatch a Pokémon as good as a 24hr egg. Each egg could be sold and bought on PokéBay if the player didn't want to hatch it themselves.
Only one egg could be hatched at a time unless you hatched more to unlock more incubating slots. The maximum amount of incubator slots a player could have was three. By continuously hatching lower tier eggs (30min eggs) to unlock all three incubators increased the chances of the player hatching what they want/needed from 24hr eggs by being able to hatch three at a time.
