OpenBazaar was an open-source project that created a protocol for e-commerce transactions in a completely decentralized marketplace.

On January 15, 2021, the OpenBazaar Team announced that their servers would be shutting down.

Thankfully, the OpenBazaar wallet was a non-custodial wallet that generated a 12-word passphrase using the BIP39 standard. Coin Wallet is compatible with this standard.
