Atomic SWAP

Par CoinGecko | Mis à jour le Aug 13, 2021
Atomic Swap is a term used to define a feature that allows exchanging cryptocurrencies that operate in different block chains, but without intermediaries. For example, to move from Bitcoin to Ethereum, a centralized exchange house is currently needed, since they are different block chains. Atomic Swap would allow you to send your bitcoins to the person who gives you ethereums in exchange for a single blockchain transaction that is reflected in both block chains.
