What happened to Bitsquare?

Bitsquare is a decentralized bitcoin exchange.  They were threatened with a lawsuit or something by the payment processing company called Square.  Bitsquare (Manfred Karrer, basically) decided to change their name and crowdsourced ideas.  They settled on bisq, although they haven't yet changed their domain name, and may not need to do so.  I've been considering getting involved with the coding of the software.

In a decentralized exchange, you only receive what some other trader sends you, so the Bisq team is putting a lot of effort into protecting users from scammers.  While exploring the issues they face, I saw a recommendation to check out and invite you to vouch for me if you're already on there.  If not, consider joining, especially if you have a 100% reputation on LBC, as I will probably vouch for you if we've recently traded.

*Antifragile is one of my favorite books, written by Nassim Taleb.
