Liquality: Atomic Swap protocol for trustless cross-chain exchange

Quick Take

  • Liquality is a Cross-Chain Atomic Swap protocol, allowing Bitcoin and Ether holders to exchange assets in an entirely trustless, peer-to-peer, zero-fee environment
  • Due to base protocol scalability constraints Liquality-based swaps are best suited for low frequency high volume exchange, although Layer 2 solutions may possibly alleviate these concerns in the near future 
  • Further development of an agent model may help bring cross-chain swaps to the mass market – for now, all exchange information must be coordinated offline beforehand
