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 ASSET_LISTING_FEE_PER_DAY


Asset listing fees were 1 BSQ per day, and upon DAO approval, this proposal increased them to 10 BSQ per day.

Rationale: although adding new altcoins is currently on hold, the 1 BSQ per day fee to list new altcoins is so low that it becomes a cheap PR opportunity for altcoin marketers to show off how many exchanges their altcoin is listed on.

Increasing the fee better values the Bisq network and increases the barrier to be listed to a more reasonable but manageable level.
