In my opinion, if the coin was never traded for the first couple of months since it was added, it shows that nobody wanted it to be added in the first place so they can trade it.

I think we should remove those and clearly state in the docs that people shouldn’t request to add coins that they are not willing to trade (or know someone who specifically said they would trade it on Bisq if it was added).

It makes since to add only features and coins that people want to use. If no one is planning to use these, it just makes the code unnecessarily larger.

There is indeed worse than no trades. It’s no offer.
And there is worse than no offers. It’s no sell offer.
Listing an altcoin with 0 idea about even selling this altcoin should’nt be encouraged.


#4

I think its defined in the docs that a coin has to be traded once in 4 months at least.
