What is atomic swap?
Atomic swap is a peer-to-peer exchange that allows the swap of cryptocurrencies from one party to another. With atomic swap, you don’t have to go through a third-party service like a crypto exchange. You have full control of your private keys during this entire process.
Atomic swaps take place directly between blockchains of different cryptocurrencies.
They can also be conducted off-chain, away from the main blockchain.
