Hello ZmnSCPxj, 

Thanks for the feedback.

1. Peer 1 doesn't need to be a trusted third party, it can be implemented in a 
way that some peers involved in this system can provide liquidity for others 
and incentives can be a small fee.

2. Yes joinmarket is awesome and its payjoin will be better to achieve the same 
but I was trying to contribute and add more options for people to improve 
privacy on Bitcoin. If we have different ways to mix it will be harder for spy 
companies to analyze of some of the transactions.

3. Also one such setup might not make a huge difference but a chain of such 
mixers will surely work better if everything done correctly. 

4. Maybe multisig usage is not ideal for such things right now and I am not the 
best person when it comes to coding but think that better privacy for multisig 
will make it possible for lot of ideas to be implemented on Bitcoin using 
different multisig setups and combination of other things that we already have.

> Participants:
> * "Peer 3" - Payee
> * "Peer 2" - Payer
> * "Peer 1" - Enabling tr\*sted third party
> Goal: Payer wants to pay to the payee 0.006BTC
> Current Conditions:
> * Payer owns 0.01 BTC in a single UTXO
> * Third Party owns 0.05 BTC in a single UTXO
> Protocol:
> 1.  Payer and Third Party compute a 2-of-3 address with the public keys of 
> Payer, Payee, and Third Party.
> 2.  Payer and Third Party individually pay their owned funds to the 2-of-3 
> address.
> 3.  After confirmation, they consume the new outputs into another transaction
