How To Use Bisq Exchange Account

This Guide Covers Just What You Need To Get Trading Quickly!

Most videos below are just about 2 minutes long. Written documentation is linked below too, if you prefer it. Support is never too far away.

Download And Install Bisq

You can download and install Bisq easily from this website or from GitHub.

It’s also a good idea to verify your installer file to be extra sure it hasn’t been meddled with. See the videos here for directions. More details are in this wiki article.

If you’d like to build Bisq from source, here are directions. Bisq is free/libre open-source software that you can contribute to.

2Back Up Keys, Write Down Seed

With Bisq, you’re in total control of your funds and your data. This means you retain unparalleled sovereignty, but it also means no one can help you if you lose something important — so it’s critical that you do proper backups before using Bisq to trade.

We’ve also prepared a short tour of the Bisq interface so you can make the most of it.

More details are on the wiki: writing down your seed words and backing up your data directory.

3Create A Payment Account

In order to trade bitcoin on Bisq, you’ve got to set up some way to send or receive other funds. Bisq only handles the bitcoin side of a trade — the other side is handled through fiat payment services (banks, money orders, cash) or altcoin wallets.

Not sure which kind of payment account to set up? There’s a full list of payment methods on the wiki.

If you’ll be trading fiat, please make sure you see the account limits video or read this article on the wiki.

4Do A Trade

Making an offer will usually get you a better price and more control (e.g., setting payment method and deposit percentage), but taking an offer can be more convenient.

See trading fees here. You’ll notice offer makers pay a lot less.

Note that there’s a mobile app for iOS and Android you can use to get notifications for new offers and action items on open trades.

To see both sides of a Bisq trade at the same time, side-by-side, be sure to check out our Bird’s Eye View of a Bisq Trade video.
