DarkStar's Escrow Service

I've gotten a few requests to escrow from people, so I figured I'd make an announcement thread for clarity and to help more people if needed, as I have a bit more free time now.
My fee for escrowing will be 0.0005BTC, or 0.7% of the transaction (whichever is greater). The transaction fee will also be paid by a party involved with the transaction, and is not included in my fee. Edit: fees are currently very low, so I'll pay them from my fee.

Funds will be held in a P2SH nested SegWit address, allowing for lower transaction fees than 'traditional' addresses.

I can directly hold any coin supported by TREZOR, the hardware wallet I will use when escrowing for security as well as Byteball. I *may* be willing to hold other coins for your trade, but it will vary. Please PM me for more info.

I will deal with almost any trade, as long as it is legal. I will not handle physical trades, or bitcointalk account sales. (subject to change)


Security
- All escrow addresses will my signed by my staked address (1DarkStrRagcDjWtsPGxkav4WG3poLXzDS) and/or my PGP Key. Always ask for at least one if I do not provide one.
- Funds will be held on my hardware TREZOR wallet, so even if I were to get a virus, your funds should still be safe. (except for Byteball)


Why Should I Trust You?
You can check my trust feedback page to get an overview of my trade history.
- I've held upwards of 3 BTC for the ChipMixer signature campaign I manage
- Held collateral for my lending service (now closed)
- Held various amounts for other campaigns I've managed.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

My fee for escrowing will be 0.0005BTC, or 0.8% of the transaction (whichever is greater). Funds will be held in a P2SH nested SegWit address, allowing for lower transaction fees than 'traditional' addresses.
With a fee of $6.699, it is very likely that it will cost you more $ in fees to spend the UTXO than its value (at >300sat/byte; at 100-ish, it would be 1/3 of your fee in transaction fees). You should reconsider going for '0.001' ($13), which is much lower than most escrows anyway.

Fair enough, but I'm not in a huge rush to spend the fees I get (mostly to help people anyway), and the network should clear out eventually, and when it does, I'll probably just do a low fee transaction to consolidate. I think I will increase it a little bit though in case I mess up my coin selection to make it not cost me more to send though.
