Just downloaded the s/w and am keen to begin trading. I have hit the barrier of entry described here and wanted to ask a question without digging that thread up.
I am looking to create an offer to buy BTC with USD and find that the default buyer deposit is 0.03 BTC yet the seller is only to provide, by default, 0.01 BTC as deposit. What is the rationale behind the buyer providing a deposit 3 times higher than the seller? Obviously I understand I can edit the deposit but then am warned that my trade may become less attractive.
