Last year the app rebranded its name from the Bitsquare to Bisq. The update includes 75% reduction in minimum trading fees, 7 new payment methods and the ability to deactivate open offers.

The app added new methods of payment and reduced trading fees in order to help bootstrap its US trading of BTC. It officially announced adding:

  • Venmo

  • Cash App

  • Popmoney

  • Revoult

  • Uphold

  • MoneyBeam

  • ACH/WIRE

This should expand Bisq’s reach in the US in a big way, and will be important for the week’s BTC-USD liquidity effort.

As it already stated, the new version of Bisq has reduced the minimum trading fee 75% from 0.0002 BTC to 0.00005 BTC. Currently, it is more economical to trade very small amounts on Bisq.

The deactivation of open offers is now available on Windows, Mac, and Linux, and also has DASH, LTC, and DOGE markets.

Cryptopia to Provide New Info Regarding Compensations

The exchange isn't going to refund deposits, sent more than 24 hours after the security breach
25 March 2019   30

The New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia provided additional information regarding the procedure for paying compensation to users who suffered from a hacker attack in January.

According to today's announcement, users who have made deposits to their addresses more than 24 hours after the company reported the incident, that is, after 16/01/2019 12:00AM NZT , will not be able to claim payment in accordance with the previously announced plan.

The Exchange also draws attention to the fact that it currently does not have a specific deadline for returning assets to users to whom such payments are due. Cryptopia addresses are still not available for deposits, so users shouldn't try to transfer funds to them until further notice. After the renewal of deposits, clients of the exchange will need to regenerate the purse addresses for each of the supported cryptocurrencies.

As analysts noted, the funds withdrawal continued even after the official announcement and the start of a police investigation.
