Research and Development

Did someone say Beam Confidential Asset Swaps!?!?


The Confidential Asset Swaps will be similar to those of Atomic swaps, allowing users to trade Beam to CAs, CAs to Beam, and CAs to CAs. One important (and wicked) difference is the speed at which these swaps take place. With Atomic Swaps, more than one chain is involved, thus adding extra nuance to how the swaps can be completed without one party losing out. This is solved by increasing the number of confirmations required to increase the security backing the output. With Confidential Asset Swaps both the assets being traded are running on Beam. This means that the swaps will take place in the same manner, and speed, of a regular Beam transaction!
