Error connecting to Bitcoin Network

“Connection to the Bitcoin network failed because of an error: java.lang.NullPointerException”. Can’t load Bisq as I’m getting this error at startup. Recently updated to 1.11. Please help.

Probably best to open issue on GitHub.

Do you have any open trades or offers in Bisq currently?

Unfortunately I don’t have a GutHub account. And no I don’t have any trades or offers open right now. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but same error at startup. Need to get this fixed asap so I can make some trades please.

I would just start up with a new data directory then.
If you have any funds inside Bisq, you can recover them with seed words.

To start with a new data directory you just need to delete (rename) the old one and let Bisq create a new one next time it starts up.

You can find the data directory locations here.
