Private messaging app Gliph has launched its Gliph Marketplace, “a new way to buy and sell locally using cash and the Bitcoin digital currency.”
The Gliph app aims to make communications private. In transactions initiated from online ads, information such as e-mail and phone number are hidden. Another objective is to prevent social networks from spying on private conversations. The app also incorporates bitcoin sending functionality.

The Marketplace brings together secure messaging, transaction workflow and digital payments into a peer-to-peer transaction experience called Deal Flow. The tool helps keep parties to a transaction keep their activities organized. It integrates messaging, push notifications, status updates on advertised items and integrated functionality for making digital payments.
In the early stages, all sellers will have to be personally vetted by Gliph. Specifically, the company is looking for sellers who understand Bitcoin and are open to accepting it, with initial preference given to those located in San Francisco, New York or Portland.
The new applications are currently only available for Android; iOS and desktop web versions are said to be coming soon.
