This article documents the Mediator role.





TODO: transcribe / adapt this section to the dedicated Mediation process article, such that it can be consumed by both mediators and users alike. This section will remain, but should consist of a shorter list of bullet points linking to the Mediation article, being available on Keybase, mentioning what to do with updating / creating bug issues.

  • Contact both parties of the trade (BTC buyer and BTC seller) to find out what the problem is and why the Support ticket was opened.

  • If needed, Mediator will require the private keys from both traders to carry out a manual payout.
  • In case of disagreement or unclear information, verified proof of payment may be required to either party by the Mediator.
  • Close the ticket after analyzing the information obtained from both parties.
  • Being available on Keybase to help users that may not be able to reach out through the Bisq app.
