Centrabit - What's new in Centrabit and Qt Bitcoin Trader

After the Bitfinex hack, I'm looking at p2p exchange Bitsquare.io. It sounds great: p2p, open-source, no servers, no registration, doesn't hold bitcoins or national currency, doesn't store any data on you, all private data is end-to-end encrypted. Maximum 1 btc per trade (good for small-time users?)

Bitsquare.io is a desktop application that runs p2p over Tor - on Windows, OS X or Linux. To me, that actually sounds better than going through some website - it seems more robust and secure, and it reminds me of Bitcoin-Qt itself, or a BitTorrent client.
Currently they only allow a maximum of 1 BTC per trade - but I guess this would be fine for people who are small-time users only trading small amounts?
I have not used bitsquare.io yet - but based on the FAQ and whitepaper (excerpts below), it sounds very cool.
Does anyone have any personal experience using Bitsquare.io?
Is Bitsquare safe and Open Source?
Bitsquare is open source and licensed under Version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License. Here’s the source code and license.
Bitsquare is safe. There are several reasons for this. First, using Bitsquare doesn’t require you to submit personally identifying information, so no data about you can get hacked. Next, Bitsquare employs three technical mechanisms of protection:
  1. All bitcoins traded with Bitsquare are secured in a 2-of-3 multi-signature address.
  2. Both traders are required to pay security deposits. These are refunded to them after a trade completes.
  3. Bitsquare features a decentralized and open arbitrator system, to be used in case a trade dispute arises.
How is Bitsquare different?
How does Bitsquare protect my privacy?
Only your trading partner (and your selected arbitrator in case of a dispute) can ever see your payment information details. The data exchanged between users is encrypted and signed. Bitsquare uses a P2P network built on top of Tor's hidden services and provide the high level of anonymity Tor offers. The user doesn’t need to setup anything – all is integrated in the application.
Will my bank know I’m buying bitcoins?
There have been reports that some banks have closed client accounts when they see that there is Bitcoin activity involved.
The reference text of the bank transfer used to trade with Bitsquare will include only the Bitsquare trade ID (which is a random sequence of characters, like many other purchase IDs). Any trader that is not using the exact ID number as reference text of a bank transfer is considered in breach of contract, which will result in dispute resolution.
To avoid problems we recommend setting up a dedicated bank account for buying and selling bitcoins. If the bank were to block this account, it would cause fewer problems for you than if the bank were to block your primary account.
Never mention anything else than the trade reference in the subject field.
The key point of decentralization is the lack of single points of failure, control or censorship.
Bitsquare holds these values in every aspect of the project:
  • Infrastructure (P2P network - there are no servers)
  • Never hold user’s funds (neither bitcoins nor fiat)
  • Never hold user’s data (no account registration)
  • The software is developed open-source, there is no controlling company
  • No individual persons have leverage over the developers, as the project is self-funded and in part through donations
