The other day I had computer issue that resulted in the loss of my Bisq data folder.
The main problem is that I had one pending SELL trade, a Money-order-by-mail trade, that I no longer have any access to. I received payment for the trade this morning in the mail but I have no way of accessing the trade in order to release the BTC to the buyer, no way to contact them, etc, however I do still have the trade ID and I’m hoping that an arbitrator can use this ID to release the BTC to the buyer.
The trade ID is: 99481
The trade amount is: 951.00
Is there anything I can do? I assume that in the worst case scenario the buyer will eventually open his own support ticket when enough time has passed and since I no longer have that trade in my client they would not be able to contact me and eventually get the BTC released to them but I would like to hopefully avoid all that hardship for them.
Is it possible to find the arbitrator associated to this trade? If so, are they able to affect the trade before a dispute is initiated? Jeez, what a mess!
Before I lost the data folder I know that I had more than .2 BTC in my Bisq wallet. When I open bisq on my other machine, which has a slightly older data folder from before the trade in question, I no longer see my current balance. This surprised me because I thought that all of my funds would be safe since they are kept in addresses that belong to my wallet, which I still have access to…
Is there some way to force my Bisq client to search all of the related addresses in my wallet to get all of the more recent transactions and restore my balance?
I really hope someone can help. And thank you!
