Bitcoin Escrow Service
An escrow-like service that allows safer payment by securely holding a buyer's coins in escrow until the terms of the sale are met and as a result the buyer releases payment to the seller. This service runs only on the i2p anonymous network.
Warning: Please be careful with your money. When sending money to an escrow agent in a non-multisignature transaction, you are trusting that the operator will not abscond with your funds and that the operator maintains secure systems that protect against theft -- internal or external. Using multisignature transactions are currently more complex, and do not guarantee your funds protection, but they can be very useful for 2 party or 3 party escrow transactions
The objective of the Bitcoin Escrow Service is to act as a neutral third party that provides an escrow service for online transactions, and does so allowing both buyers and sellers to remain anonymous.
If the buyer does not release the escrow payment to the seller then after 30 days the funds are donated to the I2P project.
The service charges no fees for use.
Merchants may use the service's shopping cart interface to provide to buyers an assurance that their ecommerce orders will be fulfilled thanks to the payment being escrowed.
