In what scenario would you lose your deposit if the power goes out?


Imagine posting a trade. The power goes out, so you are offline. If the trade is initiated while the power is out, I imagine you lose your deposit. However, if you are able to get back online before the trade is accepted by the other party then everything is fine and you do not lose the deposit. Is this correct? I am not in this situation, but am looking at potential scenarios before trading to help avoid losing deposits.

If you are referring to a security deposit, no, you don’t lose it. Security deposit doesn’t leave your wallet until it can get into a multisig with another trader and an arbitrator. It can’t go to a multisig if the offer wasn’t taken while the seller was online, since the seller doesn’t know who else will be in the multisig.
