The decentralized exchange of the future. Launching 2018.
A truly decentralized and secure cryptocurrency exchange powered by Atomic Swaps.
What makes Altcoin.io unique?
Using Atomic Swap and State Channel technology, we’re building a cross-chain decentralized exchange that guarantees the security of your funds.read more
What are Atomic Swaps?
Atomic swaps give the crypto community a safe way to trade across different blockchains. An atomic swap is atomic in the sense that if the swap isn’t successful, neither party loses out.
What are State Channels?
State channels move blockchain interactions off-chain. Interactions on side roads, as opposed to the main highway. The benefits are efficiency, higher-speeds, anonymity, and a limited lifespan.
What is P2P trading?
Peer-to-peer trading allows traders within our exchange to trade directly with each other. We’re removing the “middleman” and allowing you to trade without ever losing control of your funds
It’s time to decentralize.
Since 2011, dozens of centralized cryptocurrency exchanges have been hacked, with more added to the list every month. For crypto trading to flourish, we need a truly decentralized exchange that’s easy to use. Centralized exchanges are the weakest link in the crypto community and a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

100% token control
User experience that enables our users to make trades faster and without worrying if they’re exposing themselves to risk.
What is Atomic Swap?
We believe atomic swaps are an important key to decentralized trading where you are fully in control of your tokens at all times. So we’d like to share how they’ve evolved, their potential, and why they’ll change how you trade for the better.
The First Ethereum to Bitcoin Atomic Swap
Altcoin.io completed the world’s first Atomic Swap between the Ethereum and Bitcoin blockchains. In a critical first step towards a decentralized exchange, Altcoin.io transferred [0.12345 ETH for 0.12345 BTC] using its on-chain open source process.
Decentralized Exchanges Explained.
Decentralized exchanges have been around for some time. As far back as 2015, BitShares DEX, Coinffeine, and OpenLedger all claimed the coveted world’s first decentralized exchange title. EtherDelta, 0x, Kyber Network, AirSwap, and a number of others have joined the fray since. While they’ve generally offered better security, they’re far from perfect.
“Virtual currencies, perhaps most notably Bitcoin, have captured the imagination of some, struck fear among others.”
Altcoin.io’s wallet gives a cryptographic code confirming both parties have sent the coins, alongside a code declaring the settlement was complete much like a receipt.
The MerkleColin Harper
We’re excited to see what Altcoin.io has in store for the new year. It looks like they’re doing their best to provide an easier, more secure, and more accessible way to trade altcoins.
Using Altcoin.io’s tech, developers can lock ether tokens in an Ethereum smart contract that specifies the funds will only be sent if an equal amount of bitcoin is sent to a bitcoin address during a specific time window.
While many DEXs have bulky, complicated interfaces; Altcoin.io is working to make both a simple interface to quickly exchange crypto, as well as an in-depth, customizable exchange.
Q1 2018State Channel solution implemented into our DEX.
Q2 2018First mainnet launch of our decentralized exchange.
Q3 2018Solving cross-chain interoperability (instant atomic swaps) and launching more advanced trading tools.
The FutureWe’re on a mission to solve the toughest challenges facing decentralized exchanges and hope to integrate our solutions within the wider community.
