Show warning if user has a pruned Bitcoin node locally running #3273
BitcoinJ requires a non-pruned Bitcoin node. We get frequently issues that users who don't know that run into problems. We should find a way to detect if a local node is running in pruned mode and if so show a popup to tell the user to either shut down that pruned node and connect to the provided bitcoin nodes or change their pruned node to a non-pruned node.
If there is no way to detect pruned mode from Bisq (we cannot use RPC for that), we could use the special exceptions thrown in BitcoinJ to catch those and react on those to show a popup.
