Slur is an open source, decentralized and anonymous marketplace for the selling of secret information in exchange for bitcoin. Slur is written in C and operates over the Tor network with bitcoin transactions through libbitcoin. Both buyers and sellers are fully anonymous and there are no restrictions on the data that is auctioned. There is no charge to buy or sell on the Slur marketplace except in the case of a dispute, where a token sum is paid to volunteers. (Wow, that's the game changer right there)
If correctly implemented this platform will have a profound and lasting effect on our selling of secret information.
An unregulated free market for information would redefine the net worth of every person as their material assets would in the future be weighed against the market value of their secrets.
As damaging as Slur can be to individuals it is considerably more so for groups.
This will be the most popular $Secret Squirrel World$ online bidding when the portal opens, more bitcoin purses to follow. The cyber world has expanding to the crypto universe, we're all in!

By April 2015 Slur will be in beta and production versions will be available in July.The Slur market is WikiLeaks 2.0. An incalculable resource for public knowledge and unfiltered access to the truth. Except that in the future journalists will need to compensate whistle blowers for the extreme risks they take.
It's estimated that 5% of the general population are psychopaths. Introducing financial incentive in an anonymous framework will produce a greater yield of leaked information than from say the ideology that drove patriots like Edward Snowden. For every idealist willing to selflessly sacrifice their freedom, assets and even risk their lives for a greater good, there are 1000 psychopaths willing to anonymously sell out their peers for material gain.
RT: Do you think this has the potential for abuse - with governments and corporations obtaining game-changing information about their enemies or allies?
TL: In the short term, governments and corporations can use the market to their advantage. But in the long-term it will decimate their authority and resources. So we don’t consider such scenarios as abuse. There are no restrictions with regard to the types of information which can be sold because the central objective of the Slur project is to undermine and destabilize the establishment.
The U99 Group
The group consists of nine cryptographers and software developers. We see disruptive technology as a counterbalance in a class war.
“The greatest joy for a man is to defeat his enemies, to drive them before him, to take from them all they possess, to see those they love in tears, to ride their horses, and to hold their wives and daughters in his arms.” - Genghis Khan -
