With atomic swaps, you can trade different altcoins directly to other traders and investors using atomic swaps. Atomic swaps are completely decentralized, allowing traders to exchange cryptocurrencies without the need for centralized exchanges – third-party intermediaries – that are prone to mismanagement, hacking, and attacks. atomic swaps leave crypto holders in complete control of their crypto at all times, thus eliminating the hacking risk. Such exchanges are known to charge fees that hit customers’ portfolios, such as fees for sending money to other users.
