    Possibly Marketplace upgrade

    What do you think of this upgrade idea for the marketplace (I think it will fix 100% of the scamming):

    - Marketplace option to hold points in escrow (user that is GIVING points doesn't actually SEND them until he clicks release Escrow). The reason is, if you are GIVING points to someone, those points are locked and FROZEN when you give the points. Neither party gets the points but you lose the points (Deducted from you).

    Here's the reason. Let's say you are trading $5.00 carbon for 2000 points. You are giving the 2000 points. You trade them to JOE for 2000 points (Points are deducted from you and frozen in Escrow).

    Now 3 scenarios can happen:

    #1 Joe actually sends you the $5.00, life is good. You click release escrow. Joe now gets the points everyone is happy

    #2 Joe tried to scam you, he never sent the $5.00. It's now up to Joe & YOU to convince me who should get the points (Just like a dispute). I will declare a winner.

    #3 Joe sent you the $5.00 and you didn't release the points. Joe has to show me some email or confirmation that he sent you the money and I will award Joe the winner

    I'm guessing the other party could dispute it then.

    Sounds like a good idea Zab.
