Bisq users are requested to wait for v1.3 and until this very version, existing trades won’t be executed. Funds of users are safe.

You will get following error if you try to execute your trades on v.1.2.9.

Payment method used in that offer was blocked by the bisq developers.

Trades will resume after the hotfix is released, hopefully within a few hours. Again, If you have any active trades right now, please do not send ANY funds.

An unfortunate side-effect is that existing trades are also prevented from being completed until the hotfix is released. Bisq is a proper distributed peer-to-peer network. So you can override the latest alert key functionality that blocks trading. But Bisq highly discourage you from doing this for your own security.
