We are happy to announce that the Firo cryptocurrency (FIRO) has been integrated into BasicSwap and will be available for swapping as soon as its open beta goes live!

Stay tuned for the announcement of the BasicSwap open beta launch date later this week! πŸš€

Easy Atomic Swaps Coming to Firo!

Starting as soon as Day 1 of BasicSwap’s open beta, you’ll be able to place and take Firo offers on BasicSwap’s distributed order book and swap the privacy coin in exchange for a range of other cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Particl, and (soon) Monero.

All Firo swaps are powered by atomic swaps and require no third-party involvement, wrapped assets, or intermediary layers. Additionally, due to the DEX’s fee-less architecture, Firo swaps are free of charge, meaning you’ll only need to pay the regular Firo blockchain transaction fee and nothing extra.

Note: At this beta stage, FIRO cannot yet be swapped with Monero or β€œanon” Particl coins. We are working on a more extensive integration for non-Segwit coins which is expected to go live later during beta.

When is BasicSwap Going Live?

BasicSwap is currently undergoing its final closed beta testing round; a feature freeze has been put in place meaning that we are now exclusively focused on the launch. Stay tuned for the announcement of the release date within the next few days.
