Good news for XMR
Newly introduced swap deployment is a completely new technology. Allows users exchange BTC and XMR without having to rely on a trusted third party, such as the crypto exchange. These swaps are called atomic because they have only two possible outcomes. Either the trade is successfully completed and everyone receives the other’s funds, or nothing happens and both traders keep the funds.
According to the announcement, users can now continue testing Atomic Swaps by downloading software designed by COMIT. New swaps may have unexpected errors and testing with small amounts is recommended.
Monero, which was launched in 2014, is a major cryptocurrency aimed at protecting privacy. It is designed to support private and untraceable transactions.
