AH, you ask a good question there.  I think the basic rule will apply: Don't try to make a profit or promote your own sights.  So the big sights, like Cryptsy should be OK.

The main reason (I think) that discussion was not allowed was the profit from OCN membership clause. That is still active in the rules about owning or promoting pools or other services. I invite yo to re-look at them, they are important. What is allowed now is talk about how to make your computer and mining better, not about how to sell your coin. In the beginning the ability to profit or manipulate members for your own profit was too great, and with the volatility and immaturity of the market, it was dangerous to allow talk of it. And do not use the OCN name for any outside enterprises.

I do want to say again how great it is to be part of the OCN team. We brought the idea to Enterprise and Admin about letting there be talk. They listened. What else can you ask for in a boss. Once they saw that it was in accordance with OCN policies to allow talk they quickly acted to open it. Fair and swift decisions! That is unheard from in a work place. So again: A big think you to all the staff and members of OCN who make this such a great place to be.

 

We are glad to have members make suggestions and for us to re-look at the situation and hopefully open up further avenues on OCN, of course however we have to consider what is best for the community as a whole, but if it fits then we will make it happen where we can :)

You can list on the forums where you can spend Bitcoins. Bitcoins within our marketplace should be used to purchase physical products as we only allow the sale of physical products :)

Are any of the other "Coins" allowed for use on the market? DigitalCoins, Litecoins and the like? Or are we only doing Bitcoins as an alternate payment form?

I'm in favor of this as long as the seller don't mind. Because it looks as though many of us are going away from mining Bitcoins and mining scrypt with their GPU's instead.

My (unofficial) take on other coins: They are allowed.  As for market.  The official coin is US$.  Disputes will probably default to that, not that we have any disputes.  I think the idea at first is to have us$ + a coin as an option.  Or vice verse.  What is not allowed is going back and saying "The values of coin X dropped, so I need more of them.  The set price is the set price. Use of coin is completely optional and the type and amount of coin is to be set at close of deal.

 

This is naturally common sense.  1 common sense is = to 10B$ ;)

My understanding is we will allow any crypto-currency to be used as payment

Just to clarify when you accept crypto-currency , you are not accepting x amount of $ in crypto, you are accepting x amount of that crypto-currency.
For example You sell for 2BTC you cannot ask for more BTC to be paid if the price of BTC drops before you ship.

I also want to mention that while we are accepting the use of crypto-currencies as payment in the marketplace we are not allowing the selling or buying of crypto-currencies (so no converting crypto-currencies for cash or other currencies here).

I will confirm with ENTERPRISE that all crypto-currencies are allowed and update the marketplace stickies and rules.

Generally speaking we do not disallow any particular form of payment within the marketplace. We do announce that we will allow a certain method just to make users aware that its fine to do so, but in reality we do not disallow any particular form. If you wanted to, you could literally trade in apples and cookies. As long as both trading parties are aware of the currency being used and accept full responsibility for the transaction then they can use the Marketplace.

Otherwise you'd have to say no trades allowed?

Kip brought up a good point about the value of the coins rising and falling. And I agree with B&B about asking for x coins instead of $x in coins. Because of the fact there will be a dispute about what market to use.

Will we be allowed to just say "cryptocurrencies accepted" but not an amount? That way the interested can just pm an offer of x amount of coins based on how much the seller listed it for?

You can list an amount. Its simple really, the two parties just need to understand that the currency fluctuates rapidly and may not be worth as much tomorrow as what it was today. Again, sales are at the risk of the members and it is up to them to assess what is ''Safe''
