After reviewing the comments, thread and discussing the notion of a p2p exchange with many in this community alongside the recent events with Liberty Reserve and MtGox, it is clear a P2P exchange needs to be developed to ensure the long term survival of all cryptocurrencies. There seems to be a great deal of innovation and different approaches to building a P2P exchange thus I think it is prudent to aggregate those actively working on an exchange into a single project for the purposes of collaborative innovation, funding, brainstorming and also reducing needless replication.

I call this Project Invictus. Over the coming weeks, I'll develop a website and forum for it as well as a mailing list. Until then, I'd love for anyone interested in joining to express their desire here and PM me their contact information. I'm also open to ideas about how the project should be structured and the specific set of goals we should have. Here is my crude first attempt:


Edit:

If you'd like to join the mailing list, then send an email from an account you check regularly to charles.hoskinson@gmail.com. I'll add you to the newsletter and invite you to the project management system we eventually setup for the workgroup. Also please include, your full name (or preferred pseudonym if you wish to remain anonymous) and your areas of interest.

Well done, a great initiative.

I'll be watching this for developments. I may not be impressed by the "Bitcoin Education Project", but I am fascinated by decentralized and distributed exchanges. As a matter of fact, if you get a proof of concept working in this community by September, you're welcome to attend the discussion panel (http://theconference.eu/panels/) in Amsterdam regarding this very topic.

Cheers

You know your former magazine sure is Matt: http://bitcoinmagazine.com/bitcoin-magazine-proud-to-be-a-partner-of-the-bitcoin-education-project/

We'll have an announcement towards the end of June on Project Invictus. There are a lot of people on this forum very interested in P2P exchanges and the conversations I've had have been amazingly well informed and deep. In terms of a PoC, the hardest part is getting a working definition of a P2P exchange that people can get behind: http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/11116/what-is-the-definition-of-a-p2p-exchange. I've collected several whitepapers on this topic as well.

I'm very excited to see this area develop.

I have no editorial control over what they publish now.

Great, I hope you can get a fair share of that work done by June and earn you a spot on the panel. I believe that panel will be one of the most important talks at the conference for a lot of us.

If there is a consensus in the workgroup about a viable p2p exchange tech, then we will make the announcement at Jeff Tucker's October C3 conference at the earliest. Any technology has to be drafted into a whitepaper, prototype source code composed and a credible cryptographer has to review the implementation for flaws.

And a lot of people in the Bitcoin community who are passionate about education are eternally grateful for this fact. BTW at almost 2,000 students now.

I guess I'll come back when something is viable then. Until then, can't wait to meet the OT guys in Amsterdam when they discuss openly with Ripple's developers about this topic. Good luck!

Ah Joel, I don't think he's going to the conference in Amsterdam this September. I guess you didn't bother clicking the link.


If I see him Chuck, I'll be sure to tell him that you said hello though.

Just to be sure, is this about distributed, decentralized p2p exchanges as opposed to centralized ones like bitcoin.de?
