Local BCH Venue Opens as Localbitcoins Removes In-Person Cash Trades
This week’s show discuses the successful opening of Local.Bitcoin.com, a privacy-focused peer to peer global marketplace for trading bitcoin cash (BCH). Over 11,000 people have signed up to the service and already created more than 3,000 offers since the platform’s official June 4 launch date. The launch couldn’t come at a better time for many cryptocurrency traders who prefer to transact in-person for cash as Localbitcoins just removed that option a few days ago.
The weekly update also covers how the bitcoin cash community is advancing in its efforts to support developers with a fundraiser whose contributions are donated to Bitcoin ABC, Bitcoin Unlimited, BCHD, and Bcash. The campaign is closing in on the 15% milestone out of an initial goal of raising 800 BCH by Aug. 1, 2019.
Other developments in the bitcoin cash ecosystem mentioned include the non-custodial Badger Wallet being made available for iOS mobile devices, a recently released browser extension that enhances bitcoin cash addresses for easy tipping, decentralized social network system Memo adding support for creating SLP tokens, and Monarch Wallet adding SLP support for users on both iOS and Android devices. Additionally covered in the weekly update is how Anypay and Cointext have partnered to make remittance transfers cheaper and faster for cross-border payments using bitcoin cash.
