I can see how this made sense in 2015, but with full blocks and large spam attacks, we’re now seeing a steep rise in offers that never hit the blockchain because the taker or maker funds were never confirmed, and have too low a fee to confirm during the total length of the trade.
This is a huge problem, as the party whose transactions HAD been confirmed when the offer was accepted takes a total loss on the fees, AND has no recourse to the counterparty’s deposit, since it was never confirmed.
- Am I understanding this wrong?
- Isn’t this a huge risk that makes Bisq undependable and highly risky for essentially no reason (other than to make things slightly more convenient)?
- Why doesn’t Bisq just require that funds have 1 confirmation before allowing a given transaction to be included in the Available Balance?
