Why Is Bitcoin the only supported payment method?

    As many of us involved with cryptocurrency know, Bitcoin is now running at 100% of capacity. If OpenBazaar is a success, it will be competing with existing Bitcoin transactions for the limited slot of 3 TPS and hence Bitcoin fees will go even higher than they are today.


    Are you going to support other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum which offer today and plan in the future much higher transaction capacity?

    Bitcoin is and has been running at an average of around 70% of it's block size capacity for all of 2016.

    There is still considerable space for more transactions.

    With several solutions in the works we can expect bitcoin to handle more than enough transactions if OpenBazaar becomes a big success.
