Bitcoin has had a rough week. On the heels of downward movement in price, the third largest Bitcoin exchange, Bitstamp, was hacked for nearly 19,000 Bitcoin.
While both of these events impact people in the Bitcoin community in different ways, none of them got our team down more than a quote in an article about the Gliph Marketplace published yesterday.
In an article titled, Gliph Uses In-App Messaging, Bitcoin to Take On Craigslist, a quote was used that suggested the only reason we have been focused on Bitcoin is because investors like it. This quote was at best taken of the context it was used and simply can not be further from the truth. We’ve asked for it to be retracted.
Gliph’s roots are in protecting the privacy and communications of its users. We reached the idea of integrating Bitcoin because it provides private, secure and frictionless payments. We came to this conclusion long before Apple Pay existed and before the first dollar of investment from Bitcoin supporters went into the company. Continue reading
Today marks an important expansion of Gliph with the release of Gliph Marketplace: a new way to buy and sell locally using cash and the Bitcoin digital currency.
Our team has brought together secure messaging, transaction workflow and digital payments into an awesome new P2P transaction experience we call Deal Flow.
- Deal Flow helps you stay focused on completing a deal by integrating messaging and useful push notifications into the buying and selling experience. Gliph Marketplace has privacy built-in eliminating the distraction of “burner” phone numbers and “email gateways.”
- Deal Flow saves you time with intuitive listing status updates. For example, when someone is ready to buy something from you, the status moves from “Q&A” to “Offer Submitted.” Deal status updates ensure you have the most recent information so you can make the best decision with your time.
- Deal Flow earns you money faster by making digital payments an integrated part of the Gliph Marketplace experience. Once you’ve accepted an offer, paying for the item using Bitcoin is handled in a single tap.
You can view a complete video demo of Gliph Marketplace and Deal Flow here:
From time to time, we’ll highlight sellers and listings from Gliph Marketplace. At the debut, we’re happy to highlight the listings of Portland-area artist, Sam Roloff.
Sam Roloff was raised in the San Francisco Bay area and eventually graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1992. Journeys through Central America eventually landed Sam in Prague, Czech Republic where he ran a gallery and developed his talent for figurative works.
If you’re familiar with Bitcoin as a technology, you know that decentralization is a key part. Decentralization helps protect the Bitcoin network from attack and allows transactions to be confirmed without trust.
Since some of the most positive aspects of decentralization are obvious to Bitcoin users, we wanted to address why Gliph Marketplace, though Bitcoin-enabled, is not decentralized: Continue reading
