OpenBazaar OB1 platform developers have announced a new product, that will allow users to pay cryptocurrency in a mobile application.
The company's blog post reads that the new instrument called Haven will be completely decentralized.
"Keep your data and your financial information safe when you shop, chat, and send cryptocurrencies privately using Haven. Using this one-of-a-kind peer-to-peer network means no middlemen or big companies—which means no tracking and no fees." - says on the project website.
When using Haven, users will be able to buy and sell both goods and services without intermediaries. It was noted that the application will have four different sections that can be used by customers. The focus will be made on the shopping section, though the app will also feature a chat.
The application will be available on both iOS and Android devices via OpenBazaar network. The launch is expected this week.
At the moment, the OpenBazaar team has achieved great success by now. In particular, it has recently attracted $10.5 million from several investors, and 250,000 new nodes have entered the platform since the launch date.
Jenn Cloud, head of public relations group, confirmed that the company has a fairly strong base of users and a large number of casual users, who, as a rule, also use software from time to time.
The new service will support BTC, BCH, LTC and ZEC. The company plans to add ETH in the long run.
