My first trade on Bisq went smoothly, and then I made another successful trade with the same person. However, my next two trades haven’t gone so well. I had an offer to buy Grin (sell btc) for 0.0015 btc per grin. Someone accepted my offer, but over the next 24 hours, they never sent me the grin. In that time, the price of grin roughly doubled. I have a dispute pending.
Today I took an offer to buy some grin for 0.0030 btc per grin, and several hours have passed without payment. I can see the same seller updating the price on their offers, so they are awake and active. And again the price is rising.
This is only 2 datapoints, but it appears that some people are using bisq as cheap “options” to sell grin at a given price. If the price rises, they just don’t deliver the grin and lose the security deposit, which is cheaper than delivering the grin as agreed. And they are allowed to keep offering grin. If the price drops, then they just deliver the grin. So either way they win.
Is anyone else seeing this behavior? Is there a solution to this?
