PGP was considered a hurdle, but it's not absolutely necessary.

I've added a bit to point 2 above to outline an alternative process without PGP that should be accessible to virtually _anybody_.

I'm keeping this thread updated in case we choose to go in a more peer-to-peer route for protection mechanisms. Also most methods in this thread don't involve activity with banks, which could be an advantage.

> Alternative: in talking with Manuel, it became clear that PGP is more for convenience (or inconvenience, depending on your perspective) -- not absolutely necessary. A buyer who wants to avoid PGP could achieve the same result by simply including links to their online profiles in their Bisq payment account, announcing updates to those profiles in a peer-to-peer chat with the seller (i.e., new tweet, gist, etc), and then making those updates. The seller can then verify that the buyer made the updates as he announced them, so he must have control of the profiles he claims.
