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.

Total trading fees paid in BTC is 0.8%, 0.1 by maker and 0.7 by taker. Total trading fees paid in BSQ is ~0.4%, 0.05% for maker and 0.35% for taker.
