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.

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

Current rates
