Litecoin security deposit stuck

I completed a LTC trade a couple days ago and withdrew the security deposit to my bisq wallet. Then I transferred it to my wallet. Since then, the security deposit and withdrawal is still stuck. There is a Transaction ID but I can’t find it on any LTC block explorer. Normally, the confirmation would be spinning until it’s confirmed but it’s not spinning at all. How do I get my LTC?

Transaction id from MultiSig: dc360858f9dcdfbd85c21deb5d2f115b510d59a5314f0ca8db7442e7c02b6afd

Transaction id to my wallet: e65723aced753c50abb03c2cba2f459986b3d01f81a95b1baa99f845cd13269f

Perhaps this is one of the known issues when transactions don’t get published if your Bisq connects to a unsynchronized local node, if you had it running on the same computer.

If you have a Litecoin node running on your computer, you should try closing it, deleting the spv chain file in Bisq by going to settings and clicking the appropriate button and then restarting your Bisq twice.

Can you post the deposit tx?
Try to restart the app, then the tx gets rebroadcasted.

I can’t delete the SPV chain file. It comes up with an error message saying it can’t delete the SPV chain file.


edit: I don’t have a local Litecoin node running except for electrum-ltc on a VM.

Try closing Bisq, stopping Litecoin node if you are running it and then starting the app again.
If you haven’t already. Then try to delete the file again, if it doesn’t work, you can do it manually.

It is in the data directory under ltc_mainnet/wallet/bisq.spvchain
You can find the data directory in:

  • Mac OSX: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Bisq
  • Linux: /home/username/.local/share/Bisq
  • Windows 7,8: C:\Documents and Settings\username\AppData\Roaming\Bisq
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Bisq

I deleted the SPV chain file and restarted Bisq a few times. Then let Bisq finish syncing. The 2 transaction I posted above is now gone and there is a new one “Taker and tx fee” transaction.

Could the MultiSig wallet/payout not be functioning?

The deposit txid: c5a6437bb6288b98e8bf2dc704d75f9e00b0a5625d43322543b09084c872816f

We had issues recently with tx not broadcasted. Will be fixed in upcoming release (tomorrow).
I will PM you how we proceed to do the payout again.

Payout is done:
