Bisq Network (formerly known as Bitsquare) is an open-source project and a decentralized network where users can exchange Bitcoin for fiat currencies or alternative cryptocurrencies with full anonymity. Bisq runs as a desktop application that synchronizes with Bitcoin Main Net by using the privacy of the Tor Browser, increasing transaction anonymity.
Bisq trading platform allows users to connect through the TOR browser's anonymous connection layer. Due to the advanced interface, it's best suited to users who understand how anonymous network services work and have traded cryptocurrencies before. One of the downsides is the fact that you need to keep the application running so the transactions can go through.

Bisq Network is an open source project, funded by personal savings and community donations. Bisq is not a company, it is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) with distributed ownership based on level of participation in the project. Anyone who contributes can become a shareholder. The platform is developed and supported by Manfred Karrer, a developer, who lives in Spain.

Bisq is a payment solution based on a pure P2P infrastructure (connecting through Tor network services). While transferring fiat currency requires the involvement of traditional channels like banks or payment processors, Bisq works independently. Bisq does not hold any of their clients' Bitcoins. Cryptos are stored in multi-signature addresses rather than a Bisq-controlled wallet.
Some users question the legal status of trading cryptocurrency vs fiat currency through this platform, due to concerns with banking regulations in their country.
