@patrickman6 the cryptocurrency version of eBay — Now Recruiting

Forra is a marketplace similar to eBay built on a blockchain. We are transitioning from our MVP site ( after our hypothesis was true that people do want to sell their items in exchange for cryptocurrency. We have found great success in that niche and want to move forward into a much more scaleable approach by creating a marketplace for people to do so. We are currently weeks away from launch.
