So when do we launch localbitshares?
« on: June 23, 2017, 07:21:56 pm »
While I hope hero does well and I hope the blockpay thing gets worked out, what I really would want to see is our own version of localbitcoins. Lets launch the tools that people can have a peer2peer marketplace.

So what would we need besides devs for it.

- An escrow service
- A nice website for it.
- Works on mobile phones.

What else?

That would be absolutely freaking awesome. But this should be built on top of really smart smart contract to do better than localbicoin and other p2p markets.

Great idea.
We need someone who is technical to create a worker proposal outlining the steps so it can get approved and then hire someone to develop it

While I understand that we didn't pursue this when the price was low, but I really think this is socalled low hanging fruit. Offering people the tools to do trades for cash themselves would create a distributed system of fiat on and off ramps. Bitshares could excel in this area and there are quite a few countries in the world were people need this now.

I have no experience nor friends or contacts in the world of computer-science, so I'm not confident in my abilities to oversee this. But I'd be willing to help crowdfund this or whatever to get this of the ground. If we can do better than localbitcoins I'm all for it.

We're trying to foster p2p exchanges into bitcash and get people into Bitshares (or any other coin) using another website similar to Blocktrades/Shapeshift.

The idea is that people can trade fiat to crypto (ie. bitcash) 1:1 instead of trying to deal with order books, varied price offers, price fluctuations, different exchange prices.

We'll see how that goes!

Greatly interested and supportive of this idea of a local bitshares peer to peer service with escrow as I feel this would be very valuable to our community and would love to lend my assistance if I may of any.

Best,

I'd love to build something like this ... but being located in Germany just prevents me from doing so :(
localbitcoins isn't available here either :(
