Hi there,
as you might guess from my username, i am about to get a bazaar store up and running on a Banana Pro board. At the moment with very little success.

First i tried out lubuntu for banana, then i upgraded to lubuntu 16.04. After that i tried Raspbian for banana and today i had a go on archlinux for banana.

nothing worked. either the dist is too old , or the python packages dont fit or there are packages missing,....

Since it is arm, i can not install a .deb package from openbazaar.org. I will have to get the openbazaar-server from github, but this needs a special version of python installed. So the shit goes on and on and on.

Does anyone of you have a store running on a raspi/banana so far? I there any running store working on raspi/banana with version 1.1.1?

How can i eventually make it? Any hints?

I am not a coder! I am limited to copy&paste.

  As Bitcoin Fees Rise, OpenBazaar Looks at Altcoin Payments
Posted by: andy - 04-10-2017, 07:59 PM - Forum: Open Bazaar News - No Replies

From cryptocoinsnews.com

OpenBazaar, an open-source market that allows buyers and sellers of goods to directly create shops and sell goods without fees, restrictions or accounts, is looking to layer multiple cryptocurrencies into its wallet in the interest of offering lower transaction fees. The online market already allows users to pay for purchases in multiple cryptocurrencies via an integration with the ShapeShift.io exchange.
With rising bitcoin fees, Mike Wolf, design lead at OpenBazaar, has proposed supporting multiple cryptocurrencies, noting there are details to be worked out.
Rising Bitcoin Fees
“Bitcoin fees are getting high,” Wolf tweeted. “Should @OpenBazaar support multiple cryptocurrencies?” The tweet directed readers to a Youtube video in which he presented an idea for how multiple currencies could layer into the OpenBazaar wallet.

Lee, who noted that Litecoin’s volume is now over $10 million, sees interoperability of different cryptocurrencies as a key to lowering transaction costs.
Lee has advocated SegWit to activate on both bitcoin and Litecoin. He noted in an article on the SegWit website that the release candidate code is tagged and binaries are near release.
SegWit’s main benefit is transaction malleability, Lee said. Lightning Network could be built atop Litecoin.
At 1MB block size, Lightning Network and SegWit on bitcoin can service 500 million users, he noted.

Hi,

When I added the sidebar and ads to the templates I couldn't find a way to accommodate the sidebar on mobiles, so I got rid of it instead. So when you log in with a mobile it should look fine, there should not be ads sitting in front of the content!

I could only test it out on simulator sites and with a plugin that modifies the user agent in the browser. It seems ok, but I'd appreciate any feedback from smartphone users!

It should load a completely different theme, so if you can see it in both desktop and mobile, the difference will be obvious.
Thanks
Andy

  OpenBazaar: Everything in Moderation?
Posted by: Zek - 02-22-2017, 05:52 PM - Forum: Open Bazaar News - Replies (1)

By Open Bazaar Blogger

OpenBazaar Moderators acting like Bitcoin Miners
The most difficult part of any decentralized network is to find ways of securing it and reducing fraud when no one person or institution can control or influence the outcome. With bitcoin, there are miners who compete with one another to earn the reward for ensuring the accuracy of the shared ledger, with OpenBazaar (OB) the moderators will compete with one another to promote honesty between buyers and sellers and earn fees for securing the network by being the third party if any disputes arise. While impossible to have a perfect system where absolutely no fraud takes place, the moderators and user reviews will play in important part in making it as safe as possible to use.

Why use a Moderator?
Using a moderator gives both buyer and seller peace of mind knowing that if a problem arises at least there is someone they can plead their case to in order to protect them from dishonest users.
