OpenBazaar is a free online marketplace and a peer to peer application that doesn’t require middlemen, has no fees and no restrictions.

The platform announced on Wednesday that it had integrated Bitcoin Cash, the cryptocurrency that forked from the main Bitcoin blockchain last year. It has also added a beta release for Zcash support.

Both currencies are added as part of the project's version-2.1 release.

With this update, users will have the option to create new nodes for processing Bitcoin Cash and Zcash (Beta) payments, respectively.

It is worth noting that the startup has raised more than $4 million to date. The investments are coming from Andreessen Horowitz and Union Square Ventures as well as industry investors like Digital Currency Group and Berlin-based BlueYard.

According to the release, more currencies and multiple currency support are on its roadmap for future releases.
