User control update: Blocking users

You’ve been asking for it, and now it’s here. The ability to “block” pesky users is now live.

At LocalCryptos, we want to keep you in control. You control your private keys to your wallet. Now you can control who can open trades with you.

As a maker, you’ve probably experienced an annoying trader before. Sometimes people can’t take a hint, and they’ll continuously re-open trades with you despite being told you’re not interested. Now you can block them.

To block a user, can click the “Block” button in the bottom right of the trade interface. The other user will be restricted from opening new trades with you.

Note: They will still be able to send you messages in the current trade.

If you have blocked someone in error you can click the button again and it will unblock them.

More updates are soon to follow, including better controls for your offers.
