Atomic and cross-chain swaps


In our next meetup, we are going to unveil the mystery of cross-chain interoperability, by introducing the basic notions of the topic.

We will firstly demonstrate in brief presentations the conceptual building blocks, like HTLC (Hash Time Lock Contract), HTLA (Hash Time Lock Agreement), atomic and multihop swaps.
Some potential application areas like lightning network, raiden or interledger protocol will be also briefly summarized.

The presentations will be followed by a workshop by Daniel Szego, where the participants have the possibility to experiment with simplified atomic swaps in Solidity language.
