I follow the Bisq forum now for a while.
And I made trades over many Bisq releases (0.7.0 to 0.9.4).
I never experienced any problems.
My impression why people have problems is:
- PC not running stable.
Hardware problems (i.e. overheating). Driver problems (network, storage, graphic).
I assume that any Windows PCs older than 2 years is infected with some kind of malware.
- PC not running 24/7 until trade is completed.
The quality of the Bisq releases is high in general. I never had any crash.
I would recommend people who want use Bisq for trade:
- Run your PC 3 days 24h with a network monitor running (build in with Windows, Google it)
Is your PC still running stable after 3 days continuous running ?
Does your PC produce unexplained network traffic ? (malware ?)
I’m sure once your PC is healthy Bisq is running fine.
