This community is focused on Decentralised Peer-to-Peer Trade (DP2PT). The goal is to share experiences, advice, and tools for growing this space as we believe that it will be the next generation of e-commerce. Network with buyers and sellers to share your experiences in a quest to discover what DP2PT networks can offer for you. We will invite speakers and developers of the open-source tools so that your feedback can be heard. Come and discover the beauty of open and free trade!
The OpenBazaar open-source project provides the first usable example of a decentralised peer-to-peer marketplace. Its current popularity in the Bitcoin community leads us to believe that it will be the market leader in this space. This group allows people to discuss best practises for using OpenBazaar, but we are open to discussing other networks such as BitMarkets, SafeMarket, and Shadow Project.
There are many benefits to OpenBazaar. By using Bitcoin for payments and dispute mediation, OpenBazaar reduces fee overheads associates with payment processors and e-commerce platforms. Sellers who make their living on narrow profit margins have the most to benefit. Sellers are also protected from payment fraud and buyers get discounted prices without the need to expose their identity.
OpenBazaar London will meet to discuss this emerging technology and is aimed at everyone pursuing low friction trade. Prior knowledge of Bitcoin is not required to make OpenBazaar work for your business.
This Meetup group is run by the team behind Duo Search, the fast OpenBazaar search engine (https://duosear.ch).
