The newest technology heading into the next year.
With atomic swaps comes the ability to directly send Swap between Bitcoin, Litecoin and any crypto coins on the Lightning Network.
This will happen in the distant future when the timing is right.
The idea is to wait for ASIC mining technology to be fairly distributed, meaning multiple vendors.
The future of Swap is about remaining a robust blockchain. Secure against outside attacks and flexible, adapting to advancements in technology.
A community developed crypto coin with contributors from around the world.
The main objective is to remain an ethical, useful, and fair crypto coin. For Swap, this includes robust privacy, ecosystem fairness, full transparency, secure blockchain, and ease of use.
With Swap you can expect no compromises with governance fees, no premine, and no BS.
No, MimbleWimble is the protocol (like CryptoNote). Cuckoo is the original algorithm Cuckatoo and Cuckaroo are based on. Cuckatoo is the ASIC friendly algorithm and Cuckaroo is the GPU friendly algorithm.
Swap uses the CryptoNote protocol for transactions and a Cuckaroo variant for mining.
CryptoNight is slow on GPUs because FPGAs can use embedded RAM. Further variants of CryptoNight will buy time but do not solve anything long-term.
Cuckaroo Cycle PoW brings superior protection and stability to the Swap network. The fork was on February 2nd, 2019 10:30 AM UTC.
We use Moneros way of handling transactions (BulletProof) and a Grin-like way of mining (Cuckaroo Cycle PoW).
Swap will stay close to Monero technology-wise while using a different PoW algorithm.
Learn the technology. It's easier to explain things when you understand them better. Then you can form opinions about the technology's potential, or lack thereof.
Spread the word about Swap and bring all kinds of people in, regardless of coding skills. Even reach out to haters, because they help to make the community more robust.
The two letters are from the initials of FreeHaven. After re-branding to Swap, the address was kept to simplify compatibility with legacy addresses and to remember where the project originated from.
CryptoNote uses ring signatures, a sophisticated scheme requiring several different public keys to verify a transaction.
The transaction is signed by multiple users anonymously. Only signing users have knowledge of sender and receiver.
Ring signatures restrict double-spending attempts by linking transactions with the same private key. The protocol uses the key image, derived from a private key through an unidirectional function.
Users store all images and verify them against new transactions. If there is a double key image, the transaction is rejected as a double-spending attempt. Meanwhile the identity of the sender remains unknown, it's not possible to get a private key from an image.
The protocol generates multiple unique one-time addresses for each payment from the unique public key. The sender uses random data and the receiver's public address to generate a one-time key.
The redeemable funds require the receivers private key. They are the only one who can receive the funds sent to the one-time address. A third party can't see the connection between the one-time key and the public address of the receiver.

Total supply is 18,400,000 XWP.
When the block reward is below tail emission block reward, the tail emission phase will begin. Block reward will be constant at 0.075 Swap.
The kickoff will be year 8 from genesis block. This is after roughly 16,000,000 blocks found, or 18,085,000 into coin emission. During tail emission there will be 157,680 coins mined each year.
"With a 42-line complete specification, Cuckatoo Cycle is less than half the size of either SHA256 or Blake2b.
While trivially verifiable, finding a 42-cycle, on the other hand, is far from trivial, requiring considerable resources."
- John Tromp
Step one is removing edges that are not part of a cycle (99.9%). Step two is a backtracking graph traversal to find all cycles.
Swap uses 32 edge trimming cycles.
Miners use 1 bit per edge and 1 bit per node. Finding node bits in random sequence causes a bottleneck which makes mining memory latency bound.
The majority of this form of mining is done in a very simple way.
Less server overhead making processing more efficient.
Swap is keeping CryptoNote for transactions with anonymity features and user friendliness. Meanwhile, for mining, adopting Cuckaroo with superior network protection and stability.
CryptoNight mining is vulnerable to FPGA and ASIC network attacking.
Cuckaroo29s uses 32-cycles while Cuckaroo29 uses 42-cycles. Both cycling ratios produce similar performances.
