With the high fee environment in the last couple of weeks I wonder if there could be some improvements done in Bisq to ease the situation of high fees and stuck transactions.
Examples could be:
- RBF (at least for maker and withdrawal transactions)
- Not creating a separate output for the reserved funds → a check not to withdraw too much funds has to be implemented instead. This would reduce the size of the transaction.
- Paying the Bisq maker fee with lightning. Together with point two this would eliminate the maker transaction
- Move BSQ to the Liguid network as assets
I agree something should be done to make Bisq trades more feasible in high fee environments. The ideas you have are good starting points.
There was also a past proposal to reduce the number of on-chain transactions from 4 currently to 1. This would then get rid of ~75% of the miner fees.
With a filled mempool this is thread is again a topic.
It’s ugly if one’s maker transaction gets stuck in the mempool and because of that then the offer will be automatically disabled.
I guess in the long run it will also affect trade volume on Bisq.
RBF should be implemented sooner than later or at least a possibility to pay a higher fee than the one Bisq suggests.
Is there currently really no way in Bisq for a user to set a different fee then the automatic one?
Sending the bitcoin from an external wallet does give you a little more control with the mining fees.
