¹ Proof-of-burn includes trading fees paid in BTC and disputed BTC deposits for trades that went to arbitration (see docs for more details). Funds may be accrued and burned in different cycles, so proof-of-burn figures do not map directly to activity in their cycles.

² BSQ trading fees only. BTC trading fees are included in proof-of-burn.

³ See more details on GitHub.

⁴ Over time, the net impact of reimbursement issuances on BSQ supply is close to zero, as corresponding amounts of BTC are burned through proof-of-burn (see docs for more details).

⁵ Decreases in BSQ supply are good.


Parameter change proposal for DEFAULT_MAKER_FEE_BSQ


Parameter change proposal for DEFAULT_TAKER_FEE_BSQ


Generic proposal


This proposal sought to reinstate BCH trading on Bisq.

The DAO overwhelmingly rejected this proposal, with similar decisiveness as the rejection of BCH the first time. The proposal garnered 531,331.83 BSQ of voting weight, but only 0.01% of it was in favor.

Generic proposal


This proposal approved the migration of the Bisq markets API from the domain to a new domain to improve decentralization of the ownership of key Bisq domain names.

This development sparked the start of a new project to revamp the markets website as a dashboard for market activity and DAO reporting.
