About is a German speaking Internet marketplace, which enables registered users worldwide to purchase the electronic currency Bitcoin from other registered users or to sell the virtual currency to other registered users.

It is not possible to shop worldwide with currencies such as the Euro or US dollar. In the future, this can be possible for many services and products with the Bitcoin. However, because the Bitcoin is a new currency, people who would like to pay with it and do not yet have any Bitcoins, have to first exchange existing currencies for Bitcoins. The purchase or sale of Bitcoins requires trusting the seller and the buyer. This trust is not given from the outset due to the characteristics of the Bitcoin. The marketplace offers buyers and sellers the security, which meets the requirements of both parties and enables the required trust to be built up. For this purpose, brings potential buyers and sellers of Bitcoins together, who determine the price of the Bitcoin by means of supply and demand.
