Joinmarket is an open-source software project that was first introduced in 2015 as a way to enhance the privacy of Bitcoin transactions. Developed by a group of privacy-conscious Bitcoin enthusiasts, the project aims to improve the anonymity of Bitcoin transactions by using a technique called CoinJoin. CoinJoin allows multiple users to combine their transactions into a single transaction, making it more difficult for outside parties to track the flow of funds.
Joinmarket is a non-custodial solution, meaning that users retain full control of their funds and private keys at all times. It does not require any changes to the Bitcoin protocol and can be used by anyone with a Bitcoin wallet. Transactions created using Joinmarket are fully valid and can be processed by any standard Bitcoin node.
The project has a strong focus on user privacy and security, and the developers have implemented various features to protect users' financial data. The software is constantly being updated and improved, with new features
