Bisq is the only fully decentralized P2P trading platform that accepts fiat.

Bisq has no rivals. We would love if there were other solutions out
there we could also use, but unfortunately there is only Bisq. Bisq will
always accept F2F transactions as long as there is demand for it.

Nobody can force Bisq to do anything. Bisq is not a company nor a legal

Bisq is an open source project. Developers get funded in a fully
decentralized way with the Bisq DAO.

There will never be KYC in Bisq. That would go against Bisq's primary
principle of decentralization and privacy.

F2F trades are very secure in Bisq and very private. It is a growing
payment method in Bisq that was added relatively recently compared to
others. Due to it's nature there is zero risk of a chargeback which is
the only concern Bisq has with fiat trades. This is why it is the best
payment method in my opinion to trade fiat which is a primary use of Bisq.

The only downside with F2F trades that I can see is that you need to be
physically close to someone in order to trade.

As the number of Bisq users grow, number of locations that have F2F
offers grow as well. So in my opinion and the way I see currently in
Bisq, F2F is going to be a lot bigger here in future.
