I also think Wasabi deserves the payout. It is the first user friendly CoinJoin wallet. I used it for quite a lot of CJs and worked all without flaws! I would suggest that Joinmarket gets some share as well.

Version 0.6.0 is released:
If you download via the Bisq app the signature check is done automatically.

The release comes with a lot of new features and improvements. Please update as soon as possible!

Release notes:
Big features:
* Add support for Tor bridges and pluggable transports (
* Provide Bitcoin full nodes from Bisq developers ( to protect against BitcoinJ vulnerabilities (BitcoinJ is blindly following longest PoW chain and not checking consensus rule violations). That also avoids the privacy issues with bloom filters. (
* Add account age verification scheme (,

Changed fees, limits, security deposit:
* Reduce DEFAULT_TAKER_FEE_IN_BASE_CUR from 0.003 BTC to 0.002 BTC (that is the base for a 1 BTC trade)
* Lower miner fees by fee estimation adjustments (using maxDelay 20 instead of 10 and taking average of 12 last fee results)
* Lower miner fee by transaction size calculation. Instead of using 600 bytes as estimation of trade fee tx we create a dummy tx to get the exact size id funds are on the wallet, otherwise we use 260 bytes for maker and 320 bytes for taker (deposit and payout tx are larger).
* Reduce security deposit: DEFAULT_BUYER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.03 BTC to 0.01 BTC; MAX_BUYER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.2 BTC 0.05 BTC, MIN_BUYER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.001 BTC to 0.0005 BTC; SELLER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.01 BTC to 0.003 BTC
* Use new trade limits to reflect higher BTC price
    Bank transfers: 0.25 BTC
    Swish, OKPay, PerfectMoney, AliPay: 0.5 BTC
    Altcoins 1 BTC (exception SiaFund as their price is about 3 BCT and it is not dividable, so we allow 4 BTC there)

Other features:
* Add Western Union as payment method
* Show latest trade price in case no price from external market price providers is available. To be used only for informational purpose not for % based offers due price manipulation risks.
* Enable Bisq DAO phase 1 on Bitcoin Testnet: BSQ genesis distribution, BSQ trading, BSQ used for paying trade fee, BSQ wallet with send, receive and tx list screens, dashboard
* Add new languages: Chinese, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, French, Turkish
* Added new Altcoins: DECENT, Pranacoin, WACoins, ZenCash, Ellaism, Cryptonite, Terracoin, Internext, Particl
* Add all missing countries (all global countries taken from;region;subregion;alpha2Code;languages)
* Add OXT as BTC blockexplorer
* Use new seed nodes and price relay nodes operated by different Bisq developers and bonded by BSQ
* Use new more efficient data structure for tradeStatistcs objects
* Add filter for arbitrators, seed nodes and price relay nodes
* Change pw length restriction
* Change name of IOP to "Internet Of People"
* Remove DOGE as base currency (zero trade activity)

Yes the LTC market is very new and not many are using it atm. I think when BTC tx fees will rise again or when 1.8. brings a lot of chaos the LTC market will become interesting.
2% might be a bit high. From my experience offer < 1% are taken quickly.

Is Bitsquare (Bisq) using Tor network when accessing our wallet in the desktop client?

Exchanges such as blocks Tor IP for security reasons, is there risks?

Yes Tor is used for all communication by default. The Bitcoin network part you can deactivate Tor if wanted in the settings. But default is on.

Webpages might block access via Tor bc cybercriminal might use it for DDoS. Not sure about that... I assume main reason is that they cannot track users and therefor generate revenue by collecting user data. Big data is a big business and should be called Big Surveillance.
In our case we use Tor hidden services. For the Bitcoin network we mix hidden services and plainnode full nodes so risks with exit nodes are limited as well.

Nice update out there!

This project has delivered so much without any ICO hype. I'm really impressed!

bisq is really an example to be followed by other entrepreneurs and developers...

* Don't provide market price for Venezuelan currency (VEF) as official exchange rate is not reflecting reality
You did the right thing here!

Thanks you!

New version 0.5.0 released!

This release comes with tons of changes and improvements.

Most relevant changes are:

- Support for other base currencies (next to Bitcoin we support now Litecoin and Doge. Dash will come soon as well)
- Using a fee estimation service for setting the optimal transaction fees to avoid stuck transactions in times of high blockchain congestion
- Support for custom security deposit
- Multi language support. Currently: English (default), German, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese and Serbian
- Dynamic trading fees (depends on trade amount and distance to market price)
- Many technical improvements like more compact trade protocol, usage of Protobuffer, BIP 44 wallet,...

Please see the full release notes below.  

As that release has very profound changes it is not backward compatible to the earlier versions.
It uses a new network which is separated from the current trade network. So your offers from the current application will not be visible for users who are using the new version.
If you want to migrate to the new version you need to close your offers and withdraw your funds to the new application. You can run both applications in parallel as they are using a different data directory.

Please double check with cmd+e in the old application if no funds are left over (some bugs might have caused that the balance displayed in the UI is not correct).  

Please use small amounts when starting trading in the new application as with so many changes there are some risks for bugs (though it is thoroughly tested).

Release notes:
* Support multiple base currencies. Beside BTC the user can choose to use LTC or DOGE as base market. More will come in future releases.
* Use fee estimation service form to use dynamic mining fees.
* Use dynamic trading fees. Trading fees are based on trade amount and distance to market price.
   Min. fee (MF) = 0.0002 BTC, default fee (DF) = 0.002 BTC, amount factor (AF) = 1/BTC, market price factor (MF) = square root of percent value (e.g. 1% -> 1, 9% 0 -> 3, 0.01% -> 0.1).
   Tradeing fee = max(MF, DF * amount * AF * MF). E.g. 0.002 BTC for 1 BTC trade at 1% market price distance.
* Make security deposit for buyer customizable at offer creation (allowed range: 0.001 BTC - 0.2 BTC)
* Use fixed security deposit for seller (0.01 BTC)
* Simplify trade process by removing locktime support (removed finalize payout step)
* Use protobuffer instead of Java serialization in P2P network and local persistence
* Use BIP 44 wallet for BTC and BSQ
* Update to BitcoinJ 0.14.1 release
* Updated tor binaries from TorBrowser 6.5
* Re-brand to Bisq
* Use new max. trade limits to reduce risks with possible bugs in new version as well as to reflect higher BTC price
   Bank transfers: 0.5 BTC
   Swish, OKPay, PerfectMoney, AliPay: 1 BTC
   Altcoins 1 BTC (exception SiaFund as their price is about 3 BCT and it is not dividable)
* Add email field to bank payment methods for enabling traders to verify identity (to protect against charge back risk)   
* Change max trade period for SEPA to 6 days. In exceptional situations like at long bank holidays exceeding the period will be tolerated.
* Auto select also non-EURO SEPA countries by default at SEPA account setup
* Added new altcoins: Janus, OctoCoin, PEPECASH
* Use percentage based price as default. Swap input text controls when toggle between fixed price and percentage based price.
  Hide percentage based inputs if no market price is available.
* Support for translations of all application display strings
* User can select preferred language (of those which are already translated) and default country.
* Supported new languages: German, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese and Serbian (still require UI layout adjustments)
* Remove ask and bid market price and use always last price.
* Add button in settings to resync SPV chain (delete SPV chain file)
* Add button for opening log file
* Remove arbitrator as potential receiver at dispute payout
* Improve arbitration payout screen
* Use TTL of 30 min. for market prices on the provider side.
* Check for market price age on client. Allow max. 30 min old market prices
* Show provider node at tooltip over price feed provider icon
* Persist last used payment account for create offer screen
* Use same seed words for both BTC and BSQ wallet
* Added BSQ as coin_type 142 0x8000008E to

* Fixed bug with not displaying correct MultiSig address in LockedFunds view.
* Add checks for locked up funds of failed trades.
* Add shortcut to remove failed trade from pending trades view.
* Use for Windows build no version nr at jar files to avoid collecting multiple jars at updates.
* Prepare the split role of arbitrator in mediator (has no MultiSig key) and arbitrator (3rd key holder of MultiSig).
  Not implemented yet in the UI, so mediator is at the moment identical with arbitrator.
* Add email and pgp pubkey to data structure (no support yet implemented in UI)
* Add support for passing counter currency tx ID to BTC seller (not impl. in UI yet)
* Change key combination for open dispute from cmd+o to alt+o and for opening emergency wallet from cmd+e to alt+e

I understand that the multisig trade transaction mining fee is hard-coded? This is a huge flaw in Bitsquare, much bigger than a few UX issues that make it slightly confusing to learn.

Current hard-coded mining fee is .0005 btc, around 131 sat/B half the recommended fee on, and estimated to take up to 7 hours.

Will this be fixed in the new version? I consider this the number one flaw in an otherwise genius piece of software.

Yes we are aware of that and it is fixed in the new version with dynamic fees and a fee estimation service (
Though that require a "hard fork" as the protocol would not support such a big change (the fee is part of the amounts what users pay in so it has a few complexities).
We plan the release in june with the DAO launch.

New Hot-fix release

A new release is available for download:

This is a hot-fix release for fixing a problem with an UnreadableWalletException in combination with Bitcoin Core 14 transactions (See:!topic/bitcoinj/mhV9BvoSYMo for more background).
Please update as soon as possible.

Release notes
* Fix protobuffer serialization issue with transaction version used in transaction hash at Bitcoin Core 14, causing UnreadableWalletException. For more details see:!topic/bitcoinj/mhV9BvoSYMo
* Add info popups for requirements for ClearXchange
* Add scroll pane support to all screens.
* Fix wrong percentage calculation in spreads view for altcoins 
* Fix missing tx fee at emergency wallet payout.
* Add address validation for ETH

* Update MIN_NONDUST_OUTPUT from 546 to 2730 satoshis
* Fix missing persistence calls when internal wallet structure has changed, possibly causing bugs with internal wallet structure getting inconsistent (reserved funds for an offer might be used for another trade, so causing failed trades,...).

Very nice update!

Several improvements included.

Keep up the good work on this yet unmatched decentralized exchange!

19  Economy / Exchanges / Re: - The P2P Fiat-Bitcoin Exchange on: February 12, 2017, 05:05:45 AM
New version released:

With this update we increase the transaction (mining) fee and the security deposit.
This will avoid problems that transactions needs longer to get confirmed in periods when the backlog of unconfirmed transactions on the blockchain is very high.
Offers from this version and offers from older versions are not compatible.
You cannot take an offer which was created with version or earlier, as well a user with an old version cannot take an offer which was created with version
It is highly recommended to remove your offers before you update to that version.
When you update you get forced to remove your old offers (or shut down the app).
You can update even if you have a trade open (if the offer was created with an older version we use the old tx fee and security deposit for that trade).

Beside that important change we improved the Tor handling for BitcoinJ (supports now DNS lookup over Tor and connection to Bitcoin full nodes running as hidden service).

Release notes
- Changed trade transaction fee from 0.0002 BTC to 0.0005 BTC
- Change protocol version for offers to support higher transaction fee
- Change Create-Offer-Fee from 0.0005 BTC to 0.0008 BTC (includes the 0.0005 tx fee, so the net fee to the arbitrator is same as before -> 0.0003 BTC)
- Increase security deposit from 0.01 BTC to 0.03 BTC
- Add LTBcoin, Fermat (IOP), Swarm City Token (SWT), AquariusCoin, Byte, Nevacoin, PIVX, Xaurum, Safe FileSystem Coin (SFSC)
- Support for Bitcoin nodes running as hidden services
- DNS lookup over Tor
- Connect to local Bitcoin Core node if it is running (ignore use Tor flag)
- Add program argument: socks5DiscoverMode
- Export Wallet data (keys) feature
- Show percentage in spreads table
- Add input validation for Norwegian bank account
- Fix bank account from for Chile and Norwegian

- Added input validation for altocin addresses: IOP, PIVX, GBYTE
- Added input validation for IBAN, BIC, email
- Rename Cash/ATM deposit to Cash deposit
- Increase max. allowed deviation from market price to 30%
- Don't show error popup for exception on Linux after screen resolution change or return from monitor standby
- Use more randomized prefix for short offer ID, add version as postfix
- Show arbitrators support tab if arbitrator has revoked but has open disputes
- Increase offer availability and trade timeouts
