This week, we've successfully integrated bi-directional Monero swaps, a feature that enables users to facilitate Monero swaps as either the participant or the offerer,. This capability, which is absent in all other Monero atomic swap implementations in the field, sets BasicSwap even further apart from other DEX solutions in offering a ready-made, all-inclusive, and unapologetically decentralized swapping solution for Monero.

We're now thoroughly testing this new capability against various edge cases, focusing particularly on all potential 'unhappy paths' or scenarios when a swap may not go as planned. We anticipate that this exciting new feature will be live very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for an update!

The addition of bi-directional Monero swaps marks a significant stride towards our vision of a privacy-first, pro-liberty economy that's inclusive of many privacy coins, and we're thrilled for BasicSwap to play a pivotal role in furthering this mission.

For a bit more technical information on bi-directional Monero swaps, you can consult this WIP documentation or these visual graphics (1, 2).

Note: This improvement requires no UI modifications; the process for placing orders that request Monero will mirror that of offering it, but in reverse.

New Particl Website โœ…

After the release of BasicSwap's GUI 2.0.2 last week, we have redirected more resources towards the development of the new website. This shift has expedited its progress significantly, and we will maintain this task as a high priority item until its delivery.

As always, we thank you immensely for your passion and dedication to Particl and what it's working towards achieving. None of it would be possible without you all!

We wish you a great weekend we'll see you all back on Monday! ๐Ÿ‘‹
