Trading fees are paid to fund the Bisq DAO when making or taking an offer. Fees can be paid in BSQ or BTC.

Getting a discount

Bisq encourages traders to use BSQ by offering a discount of approximately 50%, since BSQ fees help fund Bisq's development. This discount fluctuates as the BSQ/BTC rate fluctuates. To maintain the 50% discount target, trading fees are updated every cycle as necessary.

Note
If you're interested in using BSQ to pay trading fees, see this article for instructions.

Current rates

Trading Fees per 1 BTC
BTC BSQ
Maker 0.001 13.16
Taker 0.007 92.15

Combined BTC trading fee rate is 0.8% (0.1% by maker and 0.7% by taker). Absolute minimum fee to avoid dust is 0.00005 BTC.

Combined BSQ trading fee rate is targeted at 0.4% (0.05% by maker and 0.35% by taker). Absolute minimum fee to avoid dust is 0.03 BSQ.

Trading fee rates and absolute minimums are DAO parameters that must be proposed and approved through DAO voting in order to take effect. BTC fee rates tend to stay constant, but BSQ rates are adjusted every cycle to account for BSQ rate fluctuation.
