New Feat: Change the amount of a trade on the fly

Traders in LocalCryptos can now agree upon modifying the amount they want to trade.

You’re probably familiar with this: you want to sell, say, 5 ETH. The trade starts. After speaking with the other user you proceed to deposit in escrow. But you realize that after network fees, you only have 4.9 ETH available.

Another example: You want to buy USD $500 worth of BTC, but you change your mind and prefer to spend USD $1,000 in that same trade.

Regardless of who you are in the trade, the implications are the same — having to go through the hassle of cancelling this trade and starting a new one, while losing track of the chat history. Not anymore!

Change the amount you wish to trade ‘on the fly’

If for any reason you need to adjust the amount you’re looking to trade, all you have to do is sending a request to the other party to change it without having to open a new operation. This will come in as a message to the receiving end, with a simple UI for either accepting or rejecting it.

Once the request has been accepted, the trade page will update to accomodate to the new amount, thus saving time and effort for both parties.
