Seeing (way too late) the success of the pancake swap / uniswap party, it got me more interested in COMIT’s progress.
1. It appears btc > xmr functionality works (testnet https://unstoppableswap.net/ ) but not xmr > btc. I don’t understand how it can be one directional like that.. how will I be able to list my xmr for the bitcoiner?
2. I’m trying to gauge the odds of xmr > btc atomic swap being possible. According to the bottom of this COMIT blog, for xmr > btc to work, a hard fork is required but is hopeful, since Tryptich will be modifying the same “section” of that code anyway: https://comit.network/blog/2021/07/02/transaction-presigning/
The bottom of that page also refers to this ongoing discussion on GitHub https://github.com/monero-project/research-lab/issues/84
The GitHub discussion seems to indicate that the unlock time being removed is what’s needed for xmr > btc atomic swap to work, but the COMIT blog didn’t make that clear, did I miss it? That can’t be a major requirement right? Isn’t the unlock time integral to the privacy mechanism behind monero?
