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.|
Combined BTC trading fee rate is 0.8% (0.1% by maker and 0.7% by taker).
Combined BSQ trading fee rate is targeted at 0.4% (0.05% by maker and 0.35% by taker).
