Bitcoin Atom Makes Major Cryptocurrency Atomic Swap Capabilities Available for Community Review

Per our recent advancements on developing and integrating the Bitcoin Atom HTLC API into the most widely used blockchains, we have successfully conducted on-chain atomic swaps between BCA and other major cryptocurrencies on the mainnet.

These are proof-of-concept atomic swaps performed via HTLC API across the most established blockchains, and they are now available for community review prior to the release of Atom GUI tools which will have built-in atomic swap capabilities, enabling users to conduct atomic swaps via a convenient, intuitive GUI.

Please check the Bitcoin Atom GitHub repo to download full nodes of cryptocurrency with integrated HTLC API — we have recently published forked LTC & BTC nodes with embedded swap functionality:

BTC node: https://github.com/bitcoin-atom/bitcoin/releases/tag/v0.16.0

LTC node: https://github.com/bitcoin-atom/litecoin/releases/tag/v0.16.0

Please use the Bitcoin Atom Wiki pages and forked nodes to conduct swaps between any supported currencies on both testnet and mainnet.

The next milestone for Bitcoin Atom involves releasing the Atom GUI tools for more convenient and user-friendly on-chain swaps. In parallel, the BCA development team is continuing work on Lightning Network support and off-chain swaps through channels.

About Bitcoin Atom

Bitcoin Atom (BCA) is a SegWit enabled Bitcoin fork with on-chain atomic swaps on board and hybrid consensus. Bitcoin Atom enables truly decentralized digital asset exchange by utilizing hash time-locked contracts (HTLCs) and its own HTLC API, giving independence from intermediaries and any centralized entities.

Bitcoin Atom’s development team is working on a special embedded toolkit for both on-chain and off-chain atomic swaps, allowing for exchanging any cryptocurrencies in a hassle-free way across different blockchains. Lightning Network off-chain swaps are scheduled to be launched in 2018.
