Kimitzu: A free market for services

Kimitzu is an app intended to create a free, two way marketplace for freelancers and their customers. Our goal is to help freelancers and their customers to find each other, manage payments, and incentivize good behavior on both sides of the transaction. Imagine Upwork or, but with:

There are also currently no fees. However, we may introduce some kind of fees in the future so as to finance the ongoing development and maintenance of the software. If we do introduce such fees in the future, it will be with plenty of warning.

The Kimitzu project also aspires to treat our users, developers, and other community members well at all times. For us, that means:

It's our philosophy that if we a) treat everyone well b) implement good processes and c) get the incentives right, the community and software will grow in a mutual reinforcing virtuous spiral.

Also, by default, the app only operates on the OpenBazaar testnet at this time, so any store you create will only appear on the OpenBazaar testnet, and transactions won't use real money.

Or play with our test instance.
