Atomic Swaps
Beam has built an Atomic Swap functionality that allows peer-to-peer trading of Beam for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, DOGE (and more) in a completely decentralized way without an exchange or any other 3rd party intermediary. Atomic Swaps are the pinnacle of decentralization, censorship resistance, and core values of cryptocurrencies.
β€ŒWe built this functionality directly into Beam Desktop Wallets, including Atomic Swap Marketplace, allowing users to publish and accept swap offers.
See Atomic Swaps design or Atomic Swap token format for more detailed information regarding Atomic Swaps.
