I accepted a trade ~5 hrs ago with funds locked. After 5 hrs, transaction has not been published on the chain and the Trade Process is still stuck at first step!
When I restart the app, the “Remaining Time” resets to the current time (equal to time when Bisq restarted).
(Update: Remaining Time keeps resetting to the current time about every minute, WHILE Bisq is open!)
This is very odd. I have never seen this issue before.
Any recommendations? (My funds are stuck).
Trade ID is not published: 7cc7e98091982ddf92e1f2debcb06b888f9dfac1c962d49687041e5a4912f046
Maker fee not published.
Taker fee published (46 confirmations): 792a1fd6e664e0d2994f275b2f55da9d2e810636cb33dfcebac1a744536293e4
Deposit Tx ID: not published
Your security deposit never left your wallet, so you don’t need to worry about that.
It seems like the maker is having some issues with his side of the fee.
You can contact @cbeams about your lost taker fee if that is your concern. Other than that you can just delete the SPV chain file in the Settings and restart your Bisq client to show you the correct balance if your security deposit is not showing.
I deleted SPV chain and followed all instructions for start and restart of Bisq, twice.
I still see the transaction that was stuck. It’s stuck in the same state “Wait for blockchain confirmation”. Remaining Time keeps being updated to current time every 30 seconds or so.
Locked in trade still shows: 0.01 (I have no other trades open).
Is there anything else I can do?
This issue had to happen right when Btc prices are lowest…that’s irritating. Can I still make other trades while the current issue is resolved?
If I were you, I would avoid engaging other trades before any problematic previous one is resolved. Especially if the congestion in the BTC network still prolongates. You may just add a second problematic tx, which will arrange nothing.
Or at least, verify the congestion before.
Bitcoin is here for a moment, trading opportunities won’t miss.
If you want to trade, but are not in a hurry, it is useful to look at the BTC congestion graphics before deciding, or not, to jump in the water.
Thanks for the tip. The issue could have been congestion, but more likely it’s something else. Even if transactions are unconfirmed they would still appear as “posted”. Mine wasn’t even posted. I opened 2 other trades since, and these are being delayed due to mempool backlog
Can you post the onion address of the trader here please?
Issue seems to be with that trader and his maker fees not getting published, I don’t think you can do anything about that on your end except choose not to trade with that peer.
As for the withdrawal issue, that seems to be a problem on your end, but these are luckily easier to solve, since you don’t need to get in contact with the arbitrator.
There are many ways you can withdraw funds from Bisq and some are failsafe, so there is nothing to worry about. I wrote more in detail about this in your other topic.
Deposit Transaction ID disappeared. (see screen shot). I used alt-o to initiate support with arbitrator, which states following:
“The deposit transaction was not stored in the trade. Please selet one of the existing multisig transactions from your wallet which was the deposit transaction used in the failed trade. You can find the correct transactions by opening trade details window…(the address starts with 3)…Thta transaction ID should be visible in the list presented there…” There is then drop down list with multiple addresses.
I can’t find the transaction I’m asked to select form the dropdown list. see screen shots…
If you have your security deposit secured there is nothing to worry about, you can’t really lose anything. That trade will disappear once you create a new directory, which is why there is such warning, but in this case it seems to be exactly what you want.
It is still a good idea to rename the data directory instead of deleting it, just in case.
