Build Status

What is Bisq?

Bisq is a safe, private and decentralized way to exchange bitcoin for national currencies and other cryptocurrencies. Bisq uses peer-to-peer technology and multi-signature escrow to facilitate trading without the need for a centralized third party exchange. Bisq is non-custodial (never holds your funds), and incorporates a human arbitration system to resolve disputes.

For more information, see https://bisq-network/intro and for step-by-step getting started instructions, see

Building Bisq

You will need JDK 10 installed to complete the following instructions.

  1. Clone the Bisq source code and cd into bisq

     git clone
     cd bisq
  2. Build Bisq

    You do not need to install Gradle to complete the following command. The gradlew shell script will install it for you if necessary.

     ./gradlew build

Running Bisq

With the above build complete, the Bisq executable jar is now available in the desktop/build/libs/ directory. Run it as follows, replacing {version} with the actual version found in the filename:

java -jar desktop/build/libs/desktop-{version}-all.jar`

Importing Bisq into Intellij IDEA

The following instructions have been tested on IDEA 2018.2

  1. Open IDEA
  2. Go to Help->Edit Custom Properties..., add a line to the file that reads idea.max.intellisense.filesize=12500 (to handle Bisq's very large generated Protobuf source file)
  3. Go to Preferences->Plugins. Search for and install the Lombok plugin. When prompted, do not restart IDEA.
  4. Go to Preferences->Build, Execution, Deployment->Compiler->Annotation Processors and check the Enable annotation processing option (to enable processing of Lombok annotations)
  5. Restart IDEA
  6. Go to Import Project, select settings.gradle and click Open
  7. In the Import Project from Gradle screen, check the Use auto-import option and click OK
  8. When prompted whether to overwrite the existing .idea directory, click Yes
  9. In the Project tool window, right click on the root-level .idea folder, select Git->Revert... and click OK in the dialog that appears (to restore source-controlled .idea configuration files that get overwritten during project import)
  10. Go to Build->Build project. Everything should build cleanly. You should be able to run tests, run main methods in any component, etc.

TIP: If you encounter compilation errors related to the io.bisq.generated.protobuffer.PB class, it is probably because you didn't run the full Gradle build above. You need to run the generateProto task in the common project. You can do this via the Gradle tool window in IDEA, or you can do it the command line with cd common; ./gradlew generateProto. Once you've done that, run Build->Build project again and you should have no errors.
