What is Atomic Swap?
Atomic Swap is possibility to transact between two separate Blockchains without the need of third part (exchanges), so this actually might be a big step forward for cryptocurrencies. It means faster transactions, less fees and no time wasting. For example – you have some LTC and want to send your friend some worth of crypto, but hes only has BTC wallet, so Atomic Swap let’s you send worth of LTC to your friends BTC wallet, where incoming LTC worth are automatically converted to worth of BTC without any fees or need for exchange. This is really kind of a big deal.
