The decentralized exchange development watcher thread


#41

Openbazaar Trade Protocol, according to their stack, it will allow currency exchange also:


#42

I’ve been watching OpenBazaar since the first public beta and I can’t stop thinking, that NuBits would be perfect for this!


#43

nubits would be perfect for a lot of things. they just don’t trust it yet!

Coinffeine out http://blog.coinffeine.com/2015/07/21/coinffeine-launches-worlds-first-decentralized-bitcoin-exchange-70-countries/

Top post right now.

I believe that the reddit thread is a very nice place to watch at comments and use them as a proxy for eventual B&C criticism. By participating in the discussion we, as a community, can be more prepared for when the time comes.

I am not tech-savvy enough to do it myself but I would really like to have an infographic or something like that which provides an overview of what BCExchange has what others don’t have and vice versa. Something that really explains even for newbies as good as possible why our project is worth a shot. Especially illustrations that point out why BCExchange is the superior decentralized solution compared to others that claim to be decentralized as well.
To be honest, I am simply relying on the fact that @JordanLee is behind this. But for newbies or other people that don’t know him that might perhaps not be enough.
It could also be a table with boxes and checks comparing existing projects. Do we already have something like that? If not, could we work something out?

Anyone? :wink:

I think it’s a great idea. I can try and mock something up over the next week or two.

thanks for your response. I really think that such an overview is crucial to the public perception of our project. I know that Jordan has put an incredible amount of work into that whitepaper, but something more compact/straight to the point is what most people are looking for. Also, such an overview will cause fruitful discussions and involve the smart minds of our community in a more effective way.
As long as we are honest and certain with what we present, it can only beneficial for us to have a very nice illustration of why we have/support the best decentralized solution for an exchange (and I hope we really are as I am one of those who cannot judge that) :smile:

Cheers

Just to gather some information (mostly summing up this thread) to get the overview started - this post will deal with

  1. MercuryEx
  • Coinffeine
  • InstantDex
  • BlackHalo
  • Bitsquare
  • OpenBazaar

re 1. MercuryEX uses the

is in beta and stuck there until OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY is widely used in the blockchains that shall be traded.

re 2. Coinffeine seems to rely on a centralized order book. I don’t have details about how orders get placed and filled. Coinffeine seems to be P2P trading and claims to be able to handle fiat money.

re 3. Information about InstantDEX:

re 4. BlackHalo:

re 5. Bitsquare:

Here is an article about InstantDEX.

ethereum-like?


#58

to which extent is it decentralized? looks like an attempt to monetize on counterparty.

Good read on decentralized reputation:

The Blocknet’s DX will be going into testing phase shortly. Haven’t read through it but just looked some sources for anyone here interested in reading what they are planning.
