It actually was going ok. Now it looks like my funds are going to get burnt because of a bug in Bisq, as I predicted when the change was first announced on this forum. Guess that’ll be the one exceedingly rare arbitration this month. Bugs still happen too frequently for this change to have been rolled out without much consideration.
Funds into arbitration are not burnt, but sent to DAO donation address.
Arbitrator will make a btc payment directly from its own funds if you followed the trading protocol.
Let’s hope so I guess I’ll find out in a couple of weeks.
" I guess I’ll find out in a couple of weeks"
this is what happens when you try to fix something that isnt broken. this really turned Bisq from a frictionless experience to have to memorize a long useless trading protocol. its a 2/2 key so i bet that there will be people willing to just run with the money and no real way to unlock your funds. after a couple of weeks.
For the user, this is very similar to what would have happened with 2of3 multisig. Arbitrator’s decision wasn’t something done in a couple days.
