The San Diego-based cryptocurrency exchange Altcoin.io has announced the release of the world’s first atomic swap wallet that will help popularize the function of atomic swaps. Altcoin.io CEO Andrew Gazdecki says, “this technology has the potential to disrupt every centralized exchange as we know it and we’re eager to share our first release with the world. Our mission at Altcoin.io is to empower everyone, regardless of market knowledge, to trade altcoins securely and with confidence.”
Altcoin.io stands out when compared to other cryptocurrency projects. They are less concerned with writing a white paper or conducting an ICO as they are with delivering on its promise to build a truly decentralized exchange.
The Altcoin.io team said that there is still a lot of work to be done, but they want users to experience the power of Atomic Swaps as soon as possible.
