Liquid Swaps by Boltz: Lightning-Liquid Atomic Swaps

“Shifting rebalancing chain footprint to the Liquid Network, one of Bitcoin’s longest-running sidechains, not only makes sense economically, but it also makes Lightning more reliable and independent from Bitcoin’s mempool.” “These are actual atomic swaps!

It is deeply-rooted in Boltz’s DNA to build the best possible UX non-custodial products.””Talking UX. The current swap box interface can merely serve as a proof of concept for rebalancing channels.
