Hello fellow Litecoiners.
Today we would like to officially announce the release of our new website & service, Atlantis -- The free market.
Many of you will be familiar with SilkRoad, and as I'm sure most of you will agree, SR has put Bitcoin on the map and in the eyes of the general public, the media, and the cryptocurrency communities. SR continues to strengthen the Bitcoin economy to this day.
Our team decided that in order for Litecoin to make its mark in the cryptocurrency world it needed a similar service backing it.
So, with that being said, we would like to officially invite you all to Atlantis (or ATL for short), the Litecoin free market. Users of SR will feel at home using our website. However we've also improved on a few key areas that are a weakness in the current SR service, such as security, overall look & feel, ease of use, regular updates and last but definitely not least -- cheaper commission rates!
Regardless of whether or not you support this kind of activity, we are certain that with the right leadership this is a positive step toward the adoption and tangibility of the Litecoin currency.
To access Atlantis, you have a few options:
1. Download the Tor Browser Bundle at: https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en
and navigate to http://atlantisrky4es5q.onion
2. Configure your browser to use the Tor client (Tor client also downloaded at the above).
3. You can access the website without any additional software by clicking here: http://atlantisrky4es5q.onion.sh
or here: http://atlantisrky4es5q.tor2web.org
-- These are Tor proxy services.
We tend to find the proxy services operate faster, however if maximum security is your concern you should use the Browser Bundle.
To familiarize yourself with the website we have created a buyer and seller guide which can be accessed upon logging in.
For a limited time, we will also be giving the first 3 MONTHS of trades entirely commission free to high sellers on other markets. If you wish to take up this opportunity, and can provide proof of ownership of your account on the other market, please create an account on Atlantis and message support. Please note we will only be giving these to limited users, apologies if you miss out.
We will also be answering questions in this thread, so feel free to ask away. Trolls will be ignored.
* Edit 1: Vendor fee reduced to $10 from $25 whilst we get our bearings. This won't last so get in quick.
* Edit 2: We have our first wave of products hitting the shelves very soon. All coming from reputable vendors with great feedback. Stay tuned.
* Edit 3:
Commission has been reduced to %6 for orders under $50, and less for other orders. View sellers guide for further information.
Vendor account status has been increased to $20 ($10 is too cheap to deter scammers according to the community feedback we have received).
* Edit 4: Robust & customizable shipping options have been implemented. We only display the relevant shipping options to your customers based off their country & region as well.
* Edit 5: Forums will be up within the next 24 hours (hopefully -- we're awaiting activation of our VPN service, proving to be a lengthy process due to the provider companies incompetency).
* Edit 6: Still awaiting VPN provider for forums. Shipping options have been fully implemented!
