What exactly is the relation between between Bisq and Bitcoin Core? It seems like Bisq can function perfectly well without Bitcoin Core, but if you do run Bitcoin Core at the same time, it appears to have issues (sometimes) with syncing the Bitcoin network. (Whatever that means in terms of Bisq, since it's clearly not a fullnode Bitcoin wallet.)
I've tried to figure, read and ask my away to the answer to this question for a long time now, but I've just been ignored.
In what technical/concrete ways does Bisq use/depend on Bitcoin Core, other than allowing you to easily click a button inside of Bisq to open up Bitcoin Core with the fields pre-filled in?
If it works without Bitcoin Core installed, is there some benefit in allowing Bisq to "utilize" Bitcoin Core?
