OpenBazaar is a new way to trade online. By running a program on your computer, you can connect directly to other users in the OpenBazaar network and trade with them. This network isn’t controlled by a company, it’s a decentralized network that isn’t run by any organization at all. This means there are no mandatory fees to pay, and that your trade is censorship-resistant.
OpenBazaar uses Bitcoin, a digital currency that is also cheap to use, decentralized, and censorship-resistant.
This project is open source, which means the code is publicly available, can be reviewed, and anyone can join the project and suggest changes.
We are in beta right now, testing and improving the network continually. We hope to have a full release early 2015.
