Qtum Completes First Atomic Swap With Bitcoin on Mainnet70

Qtum, a blockchain platform that merges the strength of Bitcoin’s blockchain with the Ethereum Virtual Machine to build decentralized applications, has completed its first atomic swap with Bitcoin on mainnet.

This is a big, first step for atomic swaps, a feature that allows for on-chain exchanges, or transactions, between cryptocurrencies on two separate blockchains without the need to rely on a third party. For Bitcoin, this is a big step forward in allowing interoperability between other blockchains and itself in a trustless manner.
