Markets

460R4 (Agora in Leet) provides secure peer-to-peer decentralized voluntary marketplaces.

Voluntary

Voluntary exchange for ethical people.

  • No 3rd parties involved
  • Anonymity is provided as a base for communications
  • Identity and reputation built on top
  • Content associated with aggression/involuntary relationships filtered
  • Filtering performed by end users without knowledge of participants through approvals by high reputation individuals

NAP Violations

Example violations of the Non-Aggression Principle that must be blocked

  • Dealings with systemic violators of the NAP, e.g. involuntary governments
  • Murder for hire
  • Animal murder / abuse, e.g. selling animals for abuse or consumption
  • Extortion
  • Selling or sharing of an item that fuels a market in violation of the NAP, e.g. child pornography

Examples of goods deemed illegal in many jurisdictions yet are not in violation

  • Recreational and Medical Drugs
  • Voluntary Prostitution
  • Copyrighted goods without proof of ownership
  • Weapons largely considered defensive in nature, e.g. pistols, rifles, shotguns, knives

Note: Judgment on what falls within the NAP will be made by a board initially composed of people who have proven themselves to recognize and uphold the easier NAP decisions like drugs. Long-term, it will grow into a group best able to handle the harder decisions like weapons and property on where to draw the line. These kind of decisions will be made towards less inclusion when fewer people are making them to error on safety vs freedom, e.g. yes nuclear weapons could help us defend ourselves from aliens and therefore used defensively but aggressive aliens are not public knowledge and it's probably safe to say the public globally doesn't trust anyone to own them.
