- Tim Tams sold for BTC on
Online Blockchain's new crypto marketplace site -
LONDON, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Online Blockchain
plc (LSE: OBC), the leading UK-listed blockchain company, has
launched into beta test Mooningmarket.com - a Bitcoin-only
buying and selling platform.
Three days after the stealth mode open beta test went live, the
site (https://mooningmarket.com) recorded its first purchase: a
200g packet of Arnott's Tim
Tam. The buyer of the Australian-brand chocolate biscuits
was based in the US and paid 0.00048446 BTC.
Mooning Market is a transparent and secure crypto-only
marketplace, which enables sellers to post their ads for free with
the option to make listings premium. Almost anything can be sold on
the site - with notable exceptions (full list of prohibited items
here) – once users create a profile. Bitcoin can be deposited into
a user's wallet on Mooning Market from virtually any exchange, and
fiat transactions are avoided entirely as the site uses an assured
cryptocurrency escrow service. It's a Bitcoin lovechild of Esty,
eBay and Amazon.
The site has a large social media element; users can follow one
another, message and comment on each other's items and ads. Sellers
can also amplify their listing by sharing on other social media
channels at the click of a button.
"Bitcoin is already the new gold and with Mooning Market we are
pushing for the mainstream of P2P commerce; you can't get more
everyday than a packet of biscuits," said Clem Chambers, CEO of Online Blockchain plc.
"This isn't dark web, it's a modern, safe, legal platform, which
will capture the crypto savvy and the crypto novices alike. Crypto
will leave the legacy of the dark web behind and the early adopters
of P2P commerce will be the audience and customer of mainstream
marketplaces like Mooningmarket.com."
