I am super late to the project and **feel free to ignore my suggestions**.

That being said: **Kotlin is great**. And yet I suggest **against** converting to Kotlin.

By converting to Kotlin we expect newcomers to understand **both** Java **and** Kotlin.

Bisq is already a very demanding project: Java 10/12, JavaFx, advanced Bitcoin, security, p2p / Tor / anonymity, cryptography, "decentralized UX", and what not.

Even for advanced Java programmers, not everyone is keen to learn Kotlin. Now, if we also intend to attract experienced programmers in general (say Bitcoin experts knowing C# or Python who can pick up Java) - that is even worse.

To sum up: Kotlin is great but please do not further increase project complexity by requiring two languages.
