We are proud, excited and nervous to announce that we are accepting beta tester applications for
The Marketplace. We only accept people who do security/ui tests on the site and provide feedback to us,
vendors with at least 3 months of history and well known community members. We hope to engage both
vendors and users to create a market place which is community driven and is not run by any single

We believe that our market place is the most secure option available and will enable both sellers and
buyers to operate in a much safer environment than is currently available. We feel that The Marketplace
will stand the test of time and will continue to provide a safe option to consenting adults much like
it’s predecessor.

Our marketplace is built on creating the most least-trust environment possible. We have disabled
javascript and prevented users accesing the site with javascript though we have used CSS3 in place
where possible, we have enforced PGP encryption so that users will be required to send PGP encrypted
communication at all times and we have built a tumbler that will help keep users anonymous which will be
replaced by our Bitcoin Contract implementation shortly.

If you are a vendor and would like to apply, please send us a pgp signed message with links to
existing signed messages.
If you are a security/UI tester and would like to apply, please send us details on what you will
check for and what you think could be potential weak points. We will pay what we can for any major
security flaws and will not let the report go unrewarded.

If you are accepted, you will recieve a reply in 1-2 days with a link to our site and we will notify
you if you are accepted.

Personally, i find this marketplace as one of the more interesting options to come, so we will keep an open eye to see how this develops,

and if you want to help – Feel free to contact them.
