I’m sure most of you are aware by now that the Syscoin decentralized marketplace is slowly coming to fruition. Very much so in fact, as the alpha client for the visual representation has been released, for both Windows and Linux users. No word yet on the Macintosh version however.
Do keep in mind this is still a very early alpha build of the Syscoin marketplace software, and a lot of things featured are still to be added in the future. It does give us a nice visual overview of the SYS marketplace however, and can be accessed directly through the application, with no further software installation required.
Functionalities available at this time, for both Windows and Linux users, include the ability to browse the Syscoin decentralized marketplace, as well as the listing of items for sale. While this may not be as impressive as you would perhaps like, it is an alpha version after all.
Due to an annoying bug in the Syscoin client, it is not yet possible to make purchases through the Syscoin marketplace software client. As far as we know, the SYS developers are aware of this issue, which will be fixed in an upcoming client release.
Other features to be released in the near future include searching for specific items, which is always handy when you are looking for something in particular, and browsing by category. As there are not too many items for sale just yet, this should not cause any issues where user experience is concerned.
