Url of the signing key (Christoph Atteneder): https://bisq.network/pubkey/29CDFD3B.asc Full fingerprint: CB36 D7D2 EBB2 E35D 9B75 500B CD5D C1C5 29CD FD3B

Import the key: curl https://bisq.network/pubkey/29CDFD3B.asc | gpg --import GPG prints a confusion warning: “This key is not certified with a trusted signature!” - See https://serverfault.com/questions/569911/how-to-verify-an-imported-gpg-key for background information what it means.

How to verify signatures? gpg --digest-algo SHA256 --verify BINARY{.asc*,} Replace BINARY with the file you downloaded (e.g. Bisq-0.8.1.dmg)

Verify jar file inside binary: You can verify on OSX the jar file with: shasum -a256 [PATH TO BISQ APP]/Bisq.app/Contents/Java/Bisq-0.8.1.jar The output need to match the value from the Bisq-0.8.1.jar.txt file.

Hint for Debian users: If you have problems starting Bisq on Debian use: /opt/Bisq/Bisq

If your Linux distro does not support .deb files please follow this instruction:

cd ~/Downloads  
mkdir tmp  
cd tmp   
ar x ../Bisq-64bit-0.8.1.deb  
sudo tar Jxvf data.tar.xz  
sudo cp -rp opt/Bisq /opt/

That instruction is not tested on many different distros. If you encounter problems please report it in a Github issue so we can improve it.
