The Farcaster Project releases initial version 0.1.0 of Farcaster Node

The Farcaster Project1 has released the initial version (0.1.0)2 of the Farcaster cross-chain atomic swap node3:

The Farcaster Node is a collection of microservices for running cross-chain atomic swaps. Currently the node is focused on Bitcoin-Monero atomic swaps, but is designed to be flexible and integrate new crypto-pairs in the future.

Note that the tech is still experimental. Do not try using the software on mainnet or with real money.

Added in v0.1.0

Bitcoin SegWit v0 support as arbitrating chain
Monero support as accordant chain
Bitcoin and Monero syncers
Swap daemon to manage single swap execution
Peer daemon to manage p2p connection during swaps
Farcaster daemon to orchestrate the micro-services
Swap cli to control farcasterd and other services

To get involved with the project, join #monero-swap on IRC/Libera.
