How to use Marketplace via Chat-to-Trade?

Important: Before you can use Marketplace via Chat-to-Trade, you need to approve and authorize it with a portion of your assets.
To approve Marketplace, first, you need to enter the command with Nostr Assets Token Event Manager. Go to Nostr Assets Token Event Manager Direct Message.
For example, if you want to approve Marketplace with 100 $TRICK, use this command:
Approve 100 TRICK to npub1dy7n73dcrs0n24ec87u4tuagevkpjnzyl7aput69vmn8saemgnuq0a4n6y
This means that now the Marketplace can act on your behalf to create sell listing(s) for a maximum of 100 TRICK from your account.
To create a sell listing for TRICK, now you need to go to the Marketplace Nostr Account. Tap on the Direct Message button.
Example of the command to create a sell listing
Sell 100 TRICK at price 1000000 SATS
With NostrAssets Market, you can perform the following commands to: - show all your buy/sell orders - show all your history orders - take order - cancel order
