I keep trying to purchase funds but never get further than the rotating “waiting for funds” when trying to accept an offer. Is there something I’m fundamentally not getting? Pls excuse my ignorance!
In order to buy Bitcoin with Bisq you need some fractions of Bitcoin in order to fund the Bitcoin network fee and the Bisq exchange fee.
You can first load the wallet in Bisq which in currently zero according to your screenshot or you can fund the transaction with the exact amount at the time you take an offer.
