The @bisq-network/btcnode-operators role is responsible for operating Bisq's federation of Bitcoin Core nodes per the common configuration defined at https://github.com/bisq-network/btcnode by the team of @bisq-network/btcnode-maintainers.

@bisq-network/btcnode-operators (i.e. those assigned to this role issue) should subscribe to the bisq-network/btcnode repository and join the #btcnode and #btcnode-monitoring Slack channels to stay up to date with changes and discussions.

The official list of operators can be found at https://github.com/bisq-network/exchange/blob/master/core/src/main/java/io/bisq/core/btc/BitcoinNodes.java#L43-L75; the assignees on this issue and the members of @bisq-network/btcnode-operators should be kept in sync with the code there.

Note: this issue supersedes the older role issue of the same name at #39

Running one instance both onion and clear net. No issues occurred that month.

Events

The instance wasn't reachable for a couple of hours as connection timeouts occurred. Instance was up and running and no obvious issue was causing this problem on DigitalOcean. After a restart everything was up and running again.

Did not upgrade to 0.17, will probably leave at least one of the nodes at the old version to keep some diversity.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but these are the bitcoin nodes that Bisq contributors run. They are accessible over tor using their respective onion address.

My nodes run out of available disk space. Increased from 250GB to 300 GB. Costs per node now 45 EUR.

UPDATE:
Turned out that I have set txindex-1 which causes a larger block size. Seems total blocksize is still about 215 GB. I am resyncing my nodes as the volumme increase failed anyway. So my 2 nodes are not available for a while.
