Hello GRIN community. I’ve set up a solution for an off-forum marketplace using FOSS here: Slatepacks.com
From the site:
The Slatepacks market is designed to expand the GRIN economy and build a social network of trust within the GRIN community in which users can buy and sell items and services in exchange for GRIN or exchange GRIN for bitcoin / altcoins.
With few options to exchange GRIN and Knockturn Allee no longer updating, my small team believes that providing GRIN users a community market to exchange GRIN is a key component for moving GRIN’s success forward, no matter how low-tech this solution may seem.
I know many people are working on solutions for use-cases of GRIN and I hope those projects are a success. I sincerely believe (and hope) that new projects will fill this spot for GRIN and that we’ll eventually see a truly fast and efficient p2p e2ee exchange and market.
The rest of the introduction can be found here: https://slatepacks.com/post/5 and I’m currently setting up a matrix synapse server for a safe environment to conduct trades on.
I’m inviting all members of the GRIN community to the Slatepacks Market – who are not just holding the coin but also want to participate in a GRIN economy and use GRIN for it’s intended purpose: as digital cash. Senior and trusted GRIN members are invited to become an escrow service for the health of GRIN.
Slatepacks does not require an email to join and eventually will have a hidden service (onion link) for the market. DMs are currently as secure as email (not very secure) and it’s absolutely 100% recommended to always use a secure communications service and an escrow service to conduct transactions. Users are responsible for what they post on that site.
PS: I’m not sure if it’s allowed but I’d love to post my offerings on this forum as well (Slatepacks is also protected by a legal entity to reduce liability on any one person working on it, so there’s that). I’d like to see GRIN being used everywhere
