BTC stuck in escrow / arbitrator unresponsive

#1

Hi,

I have a disputed sell transaction for which the payment was not received and now the funds have been stuck in escrow for over a year. The arbitrator is unreponsive. Who can release my BTC funds?

Thanks.

Can you post the arbitrator onion address?

Hello Manfred!
I am pretty much in the same situation. The arbitrator’s onion address is swfmgmb2aoyqxkte.onion.

Thank you for everything!

The arbitrators address is 3b7cft5k4ae6a236.onion:9999

Thanks.

3b7cft5k4ae6a236 was an old arbitrator not active since 5 months. Can you post the deposit tx? the payout tx was probably done already and you might have missed the close dispute message.

swfmgmb2aoyqxkte was an old arbitrator not active since 9 months. Can you post the deposit tx? the payout tx was probably done already and you might have missed the close dispute message.

Oh that is not paid out. I will tell the old arbitrator to open up again the case. Can you post the trade ID?

@rgaetan it might take a bit until the old arbitrator will be able to open that old app. please have patience and be sure to have updated to latest version.

Does the bisq app have to be open all the time?

No, it does not have to be open all the time but once the arbitrator will get to it you need to open it at some point. so once a day would be good to open it… I will let u know once he has time to do the payout

@Darr What is the trade ID? I will let the old arbitrator know to open up the old app. Will take a bit. Be sure to have you app open once a day so it can create the payout
