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! This means no trust in Boltz is required as we never have custody over your funds, not even for a split-second. 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. What we are considering adding next is a “Liquidity” tab that provides an optimized UI to obtain a certain inbound/outbound liquidity or an entire channel with a configurable amount of inbound liquidity."
