[10:16] chris.troutner: I’ve been using the v2.3 release to do cryptocurrency trades. Haven’t run into any issues, but my server is running on DO, so always ‘online’.
[10:17] mg (OB1): Appreciation to all of you who came out to visit at the conference!
[10:20] chris.troutner: Very cool. Love the explanation of the IPFS vs IPNS calls.
[10:20] Rod: Have the recent IPFS updates helped at all with how long IPNS calls take?
[10:22] Rod: Got it, thanks
[10:25] chris.troutner: Makes sense. Thanks. Helps to define the scope between the two projects.
[10:27] chris.troutner: Thanks, Mike!
[10:28] Jlong: Talk about the purchase flow and whther OB is willing to change the default to verified mods
[10:32] Jlong: Cannot the store provide obids?
[10:32] flavoraid: Plans for allowing geographic search? For example, if I’m looking for a plumber, I’m probably only interested in plumbers located within in 20 miles of my residence.
[10:34] ligi: what is the plan for the ethereum support public rollout?
[10:35] ligi: would so much love to use OB with DAI
[10:35] Jlong: This can apply mainly to Haven
[10:35] Jlong: Cool
[10:36] flavoraid: Also, I might only want someone who is licensed and bonded. It would be handy if that were a checkbox, so that plumbers could display their license and bonding status on their profile, and select for it.
[10:37] mg (OB1): Someone was chasing this in the public chat semi-recently.
[10:37] mg (OB1): (location-association with a store)
[10:38] flavoraid: Thanks for the response re: location based search.
[10:40] flavoraid: Maybe Google Plus codes could be used for internal location search (no api call): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Location_Code
[10:40] ligi: thanks for the info regarding ethereum!
[10:40] ligi: looking forward to it
[10:40] mg (OB1): If Google doesn’t discontinue the service from underneath us 2 years from now when they decide it’s not worth supporting anymore. (no thanks)
[10:41] flavoraid: “Locations close to each other have similar codes. They can be encoded or decoded offline.”
[10:41] flavoraid: Plus codes are open source.
[10:41] mg (OB1): That’s a good point.
[10:42] Rod: I’m making an announcement for my project I’ve been working on for a few months this week
[10:42] flavoraid: News re: Monero integration?
[10:42] Rod: https://zokos.com
[10:43] mg (OB1): flavoraid: Check out the latest MoneroTalk podcast. They interviewed Brian about that just this last weekend. :)
[10:44] flavoraid: Thanks for the pointer!
[10:45] Rod: Thanks Sam :)
[10:45] mg (OB1): MoneroTalk podcast w OpenBazaar Devs:
[10:46] flavoraid: OB hosting services?
[10:46] flavoraid: That y’all would especially like to support?
[10:47] flavoraid: Thanks, y’all!
[10:47] chris.troutner: Thanks!
[10:48] Anup: Cheers guys
