https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/33dir7/the_openbazaar_04_beta_has_just_been_released_for/


Quote
The fourth OpenBazaar beta has been released, named after the famed Portobello Road Market in London.

Please note this is still a beta and for users with some level of technical expertise. This isn’t a consumer ready release.

Binaries will be released soon. Windows users will need to wait for binaries. You can install beta 0.4.0 on Linux or OSX using the following instructions. For a detailed overview of the 0.4 beta client, visit this post.

We’ve also released quick start guides, visit these links for buyer, merchant, and notary.

This release includes a substantial number of new features and improvements. Most notable are the networking changes, which should allow better connectivity and largely eliminate the need for port forwarding. Also greatly improved is stability. Other improvements include:

- Signing keys are now HD for increased privacy;
- Internal messaging system for online parties to communicate;
- Users can now select their avatars;
- Images are now externally hosted and listings can support three images (including gifs);
- Notaries can now offer refunds to buyer or release funds to seller;
- Notaries can now set their fee (as a percentage) if their services are utilized;
- The order workflow has been significantly improved;
- Addition of simple walk-through on start up ;
- Search improvements.

Installation

If you don’t have Git installed on Linux, open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type:

sudo apt-get install git

If you don’t have Git installed for OSX, download here and install.

Now run:

git clone https://github.com/OpenBazaar/OpenBazaar.git

Once that’s complete, change directories:

cd OpenBazaar

Run the configure with this command:

./configure.sh

If you’ve already been running OpenBazaar, you need to update the code. In terminal, run the following commands:

git pull

./configure.sh


Please note that as of the 0.4 beta release, the default branch will be develop instead of master. This means that beta testers will receive more frequent updates if they run ‘git pull’. If you prefer to keep to the more stable releases only, then switch to the master branch by running this command:

git checkout master

To start your node:

./openbazaar start

To stop your node:

./openbazaar stop

To get help on the commands you can use with OpenBazaar:

./openbazaar help

If you find a bug, please let us know on our Github or on the bug reporting thread in our subreddit.

Question:
I've been checking out Cryptothrift and yeah, out of two transactions I got scammed on one. I also remember that Bitbay or whatever it was called was full of scammers as well.
I think the most crucial need for OpenBazaar to be successful is eliminating scammers from day one, because frankly, nobody will use it if their first experience is a scam.
How can this be achieved? Especially if it is open with no governing body making rules?

I should add that the person who scammed me on Cryptothrift has a 37 positive feedback.

I had (already a long time ago) an idea for merchant platforms. Perhaps it could be implemented in OpenBazaar?

The idea is to give sellers the option to back the Bitcoin price. (Important: It would be optional, not mandatory!)

Everyone who sets a fixed price in Bitcoin for an item is technically a "backer" of the Bitcoin price. But in the actual configuration of OpenBazaar and similar sites we cannot know if the seller won't change the price if the BTC/USD exchange rate goes down.

The idea is to give the seller the opportunity to guarantee a fixed price for a period of time, e.g. 24 or 48 hours. These sellers would then get a highlighting as a "Bitcoin backer".

It would be specially convenient for software/Apps/Games developers and digital media (ebook, video, porn etc.) sellers, because they have no marginal costs and every sale of a copy means profit for them. In the case of a (e.g.) ~15% crash they can expect a boom in sales.

There are even more complex "backing mechanisms" I can imagine ("flexible backing" techniques) but I want first to know if there is interest (or I could also start a thread about it as this kind of mechanism could also be integrated in centralized platforms).

wouldnt that be the same as price / coin pegging on the blockchain? ...

with the likes of david zimbeck at the helm of such developments in bitbay / blackcoin - it sounds like something that is already there in those developments ...

of course - i may be completely wrong ...

No, there would be no blockchain records - the "peg" would only exist in the OpenBazaar system. It would be completely decentralized, every merchant could decide if he wants to give a price guarantee or not and for how much time.

Of course, there would be an incentive needed to enforce that "price guarantee". So at least it should be visible if a merchant, in the past, has denied to deliver a good or service for a "pegged" price.

But as announcements on Internet selling platforms are legally binding, that should not be a major problem - it could be compared to the treatment of eBay scams where sellers deny to deliver if the auction outcome is too low for them. And I have also hopes that most of the "peggers" would treat such a system as a marketing tool to position themselves as "true Bitcoin supporters".

I didn't heard from that initiative, but it would be awesome if there already is such a system in development. Will investigate, thanks for the hint!

As I read here, the Bitbay feature you probably mean is the "Rolling Peg", but it seems more like a nubits-like mechanism to peg the currency to the USD.

My feature would not peg any currency to Bitcoin but only give an opportunity to merchants to give price guarantees.

Ideally, there would be also a "flexible backing" system: a mechanism that allows merchants to guarantee a price only if the BTC price moves downwards, but if it moves upwards automatically decreases the price (like in LocalBitcoins but with the "backing" feature enabled).

An example:
- An app developer sells his app for 0.001 BTC.
- The Bitcoin price goes up from 1000 to 1100 USD (1000 * 1.1)
- The developer's app now automatically costs 0.000909 BTC (0.001 / 1.1)
- The Bitcoin price falls back to 1000 USD
- The developer can choose that in this kind of event the price stays for the "guarantee period" (e.g. 24 hours) at 0.000909 BTC.

The advantage for the merchant is that he won't lose sales in rally periods, because his price relative to the USD then is stable - but he would win sales if the price goes down, because he gives users the opportunity to buy his goods/services for a lower price in USD. Again, this system would mostly benefit sellers of digital goods and other goods with low or zero marginal production costs.

But for now, a simple price guarantee system would be a cool first step.

I think Syscoin will be the #1 Decentralized marketpleace and will see great success. You should check it out guys. It has just growed so fast and they have marketing going on around the world now. They cooperated succesfully with big organizations and just Joined Jaxx Digital Asset Command Centre. Now also its Blockchain Foundry joins Microsoft,Blockstack as a founding member of the Decentralised Identity Foundation.
If you follow their Twitter, Facebook, Ann page and #SlackChannel then you will easily realize that Syscoin continues to be among the most professional, consistently delivering teams in crypto. Would be supercool to see if you cooperate together  Cool

I added OpenBazaar to the Cheddur app (https://www.cheddur.com/) given the details I could find on the website. This will allow more people to learn about OpenBazaar and get started. We’ve also linked all of the coins, apps, etc. that OpenBazaar supports, this way new users can discover OpenBazaar based on the coins they own, where they live, or the devices they use.

If you've used OpenBazaar, don't forget to leave a review! The more popular the service is (via ratings), the higher it will appear in search results Smiley

Openbazaar Sees a Variety of New Vendors After Privacy Enhancements

https://news.bitcoin.com/openbazaar-variety-new-vendors-after-privacy-enhancements/


This past September the cryptocurrency-based decentralized marketplace, Openbazaar, launched its 2.0 platform with a slew of new features. Now a couple of months later, the marketplace seems to be seeing some significant growth as vendors from Darknet markets are starting to flock to the protocol’s benefits.

Privacy Enhancements Give Openbazaar a Boost
Openbazaar Sees a Variety of New Vendors After Privacy EnhancementsThis week news.Bitcoin.com took a tour through the search listings held on the Openbazaar 2.0 platform. The new version has three search engines including OB1, Duo, and Raw Flood which give users more depth while searching for products using Openbazaar. In addition to the improved search features, the platform now utilizes the Tor browser, has a native bitcoin wallet, Shapeshift integration, and offline stores. Just by visiting Openbazaar a user can see that these attributes have increased the amount of vendors and users exponentially, as there are more products to peruse than a just a few months ago........

That's great news.

Though one observation, especially in the documentation in Git. Why is it that the term 'linux' automatically cirmvents all other distributions and suddenly means 'ubuntu' or 'debian'?

We run RHEL based servers. Centos 7 x64 and Fedora 26 x64, yet there is NO mention of anything along the lines of linux being these distributions also. Apart from that, not even a single mention of possible installs using the RHEL based systems. If there is, I cannot seem to find them.

Apart from that, this seems like a massive jump forward, and we will be looking at setting up a test system, and it will be via Centos 7 x64 (Server) with Fedora 26 x64 (Client).

Much appreciated for the OpenBazaar team from Adelaide Australia Wink

I have read somewhere that you guys are going to shift to Bitcoin Cash as the preferred payment option now or is this just

a rumour? I hope it is just a rumour, because I am surely not going to support a platform where the merchants are only

allowed to accept one type of coin. BTC is the worlds strongest coin and I think it will be a mistake to turn your back on that.
