For now, it’s not a huge problem or anything to restart Bisq whenever changing the base currency (BTC, LTC, DASH). Especially since offers dealing in BTC are by far the most common.
In the future, however; and especially as support for additional crypto becomes available, would it be possible to switch back and forth between “Base Currencies” without restarting? This may not be feasible due to technical reasons beyond my understanding.
I remember reading that for some reason it wasn’t possible to show all offers of different crypto at the same time (I forget why, perhaps something to do with the anonymity/TOR aspect?). However, if we could more easily switch between currencies, perhaps we could garner more interest in the alt coins as well as Bisq itself.
I just want to buy LTC without having to buy BTC first… lol. And don’t get me started on the exchange which shall not be named Coinbase …
Thanks again for the insight as always, I know it’s annoying when newbies come on here but there’s still so much I’m trying to figure out. I just really believe in the philosophy behind decentralization and want to do my part to usher in a better future.
