h4sh3d submitted Farcaster BTC-XMR atomic swap implementation's monthly progress report for August 2021

Farcaster1 developer h4sh3d2 submitted the BTC-XMR atomic swap implementation progress report for August 20213. The implementation of core architecture, the second milestone, is close to completion:

Minimal functionality: at completion-time of milestone 2, all components for executing atomic swaps successfully are implemented using our libraries as proposed in the presented architecture.

At that point ~45% of the entire work will be finished.

The project was funded by the Monero community via a CCS proposal4:

Thus I am reaching out to propose getting a team to work on implementing this protocol, with the end goal of creating a production-ready client/daemon for swapping Bitcoin and Monero. Our design enables to seamlessly extend support for more cryptocurrencies to swap with Monero.

You can interact with the Farcaster workgroup on irc5. They hold dev meetings every Wednesday at 12 pm UTC.
