As I am new to bisq and crypto in general, I do not have the required security deposit of 0.0065 BTC.
Instead of lending me the amount so that I can purchase further cryptocurrencies with fiat, I am looking for someone who would simply sell the required amount to me.
I would like to wire the money through Western Union so the seller could simply and immediately pick up the cash. However I am unsure of how this would work, as the seller currently would have to wire the BTC first. I do not want to be scammed:)
In return, the seller will be afraid of the same thing.
It seems like I am in quite a pinch here.
To go to a centralized service such as coinbase would be ridiculous, as one would have nearly no privacy left at all (the blockchain is a public ledger anyway). Most mixers are pretty useless as well (companies like chainanalysis can easily dismantle most; see “An Inquiry into Money Laundering Tools in the Bitcoin Ecosystem”).
A “loan” would be as risky for the lender. If there was a bitcoin ATM nearby or stores that sold vouchers for cash, this would not be a problem at all.
