OpenBazaar (Pro) with Monero support

Dear Monero miners, investors or just fans,

you might heard from decentralizated "OpenBazaar". This is a genial idea, especially would be for Monero, that's able to bring Monero to Real World.

I think we have to deal fast because of our main competitor and also of changing character of cryptoworld. Monero's technical site is strong, but only infrastructure around it will get the sense and increase its price and capitalization many times more.

I suppose, there are enough Monero holders, interested in Monero's growth and in getting profited. Many find the bazaar for Monero a revolution idea, but without more initiative nothing will happen.

That's why I am opening an investment foundation for devepoling of FreeBazaar.

I still looked into "original" Bazaar, some features are not ready yet, but there is the ground here, enough to me so far. I created an account on Github for FreeBazaar and would lead the project if you do not mind

Some words about my specialization. I am a freelancer, late senior engineer of Large internationally-known Company. With more than 10 years experience in web-developing and system administration. Amongst others I have a considerable experience in communication's low level and see OpenBazaar's lacks and disadvantages. I'd use more optimal and userfriendly functions, as well as the other communication protocol with native TOR support etc..

I finished my last project some days ago and now ready to spend to 70% of my work time to FreeBazaar to get it quicker.

This would be the rough FreeBazaar plan:

  1. As a first step I estimate to integrate Monero into Bazaar
  2. the managing a usable state to real use
  3. implementing further unique features

I suggest the first task for 10k XMR might take about a month 50%-work time of me. If there will be more investment, I will succeed to find more time, get to take part another developers and finish earlier. or it get for next steps.

If we will gather a foundation till 6.01.15, I'll post out more detailed plan, the list of investors. we'll organize a closed investment group on google docs and I'll keep the members up-to-date.

If we won't reach the sum, I'll give all funds back at the same day and close this theme.

Please contact me with your suggestions, questions and I wish you happy New Year!

This is the foundation address:


After the transaction please PM me with your name and TX.

So 7 months later where are we? Certainly not at the optimistic outlook that was conveyed in December. Seems like it hasn't gone much of anywhere. I donated a good chunk, anonymously. Seeming like a mistake now.

Yeah, I'm also disappointed in how this played out. Going to archive this thread for the moment, at least until we've established what's potting.

Very disappointing... I compiled side by side OpenBazaar and FreeBazaar from Github.

The original one is working perfectly, not the fork... Freebazaar's client is reloading ever and ever. So that it's impossible to use !

So you think you would be able to do it alone or more devs would be needed ?

it's great if you can help, so we can finish quicker. if the foundation will be realized, we share it among bazaar devs in accordance with working hours/tasks
