Slatepacks Market

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.

Here are some of my offerings:
[Selling] GRIN Merchandise (Free Shipping)
[OPEN] Website Hosting for GRIN. Fast, Reliable, Affordable.
[FREE] [OPEN] - 0.1 GRIN for market members

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

Is there any plan to create a .onion url?

Absolutely, as stated in the OP. It’s my third priority, after upgrading grincoin.chat (matrix homeserver) and after my dental appointment :grin:

I’ve already begun researching the steps and got the A-OK from my server/service providers.

That sounds delicious @Mokhtar :slight_smile: !

Just gonna throw this out there since I’m curious now.

I recently bought a coffee bean roaster for myself and I’ve been roasting my own beans fresh every week basically for myself and some neighbors. The difference between freshly roasted beans and what I used to drink (instant coffee) is unreal.

I am still learning the ropes and trying to improve my technique but would anyone here be interested in freshly roasted coffee beans if I put up a listing in the future?

as a user of slatepacks.com i have a suggestion. what if the interested buyers publish an encrypted slatepack along his address in “message” field (if using grin++) and vendor can just reply to it with a slatepack etc a clean 3 reponses thread to confirm the purchase

we can also add rating to profiles :wink:

You have created a useful market, but you need advertising or any other tool for promoting your resource
