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.



but the transaction fees are so high

According to this article on NewsBTC from December, BCH and a few other altcoins (Zcash and maybe LTC) will be added to OpenBazaar, but BTC won't be "dropped" from it. On their blog, they write that their long term goal is that the software, in the future, should be "coin-agnostic" (working with any cryptocurrency).

That's, in my opinion, the best way to go. For bigger payments BTC still is the most secure, accepted and convenient cryptocurrency.

BTC commerce flourishes more when dealing in illegal substances or drugs.

Is there any developer out there willing to fork OpenBazaar and bring it back to its roots as a decentralized darknet market?

If you did not know, OpenBazaar was forked from a project called DarkMarket who were also the developers behind the DarkWallet.

Why do you ask for a fork when you already can connect through TOR and use\create search engines with no censorship on illicit goods? Wink

I'm part of a movement to make the forums better.
