The bitcoin-otc project is a marketplace for people to conduct over-the-counter trading in bitcoin. It is located in #bitcoin-otc channel on the freenode IRC network.

Trading in the market is facilitated by the gribble bot, which takes care of maintaining the outstanding order book, as well as a web of trust user rating system. All trades are conducted between users directly, without any intermediation by the marketplace.

The source code for all the related software, including bot plugins and the website, is open, and hosted on this github repository.
