The OpenBazaar Blog


In a previous article we explained how we’re integrating Ethereum into OpenBazaar in addition to Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Zcash. In this article we want to talk about why we’re integrating Ethereum.
OpenBazaar is the perfect place to put your Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, or Zcash to work. It’s like a bitcoin Ebay alternative for digital currency enthusiasts who are looking for a change.
By Austin Williams, OpenBazaar Researcher
We believe collaboration and individual empowerment are important which is why we love digital currencies like Bitcoin, and why we built OpenBazaar as an open source marketplace. We support events that bring together people from all around the world to encourage them to create and we’re excited about participating in Hacktoberfest this year.
This is a video recording of the OpenBazaar Developer call on October 11, 2018.
Want to know what you can buy with Bitcoin? (Or Bitcoin Cash, or Zcash?)
This tutorial will explain how to purchase cryptocurrencies on OpenBazaar, a decentralized marketplace which never has platform fees and doesn’t require registering an account. You’ll learn how to buy cryptocurrency with a different cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin. At the moment OpenBazaar doesn’t support people buying cryptocurrency with regular fiat money such as US Dollars or Euros, though it’s a feature that will hopefully be supported in the future.
Can cryptocurrency really be used as a “currency?” Is it something we should spend on everyday goods and services? What about when the price shoots up and we know how valuable it can be if we hodl it?
OpenBazaar is not like a regular online marketplace.
