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 8 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.
- Held upwards of 5 BTC for my new lending service as collateral


How to Start the Escrow Process
Send me a PM with the following info:

Name of Buyer: (preferably with profile link)
Name of Seller: (preferably with profile link)
Goods Being Traded:

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.

I would like to vouch for him he held more than 4 btc worth of collateral for the loans i took which were worth around 3btc
Also used him as an escrow couple of times i would recommend to use him as an escrow because of low fees and a really smooth transaction
