Arbitration Fee

In order to compensate arbiters for their work and avoid an attacker from spamming the system, creating disputes and appealing requires arbitration fees. Each party will deposit an amount equal to the arbitration fee in the smart contract. If one party fails to do so, the smart contract will consider that the court ruled in favor of the party who deposited the arbitration fee (without even creating a dispute in the court). If both parties deposit the funds, the winning party will be reimbursed when the dispute is over, and the losing party’s fee will be distributed among the arbiters.
