Atomic Swaps between Bitcoin and Monero

  title={Atomic Swaps between Bitcoin and Monero},
  author={Philipp Hoenisch and Lucas Soriano del Pino},
Due to the evergrowing blockchain ecosystem, interoperability has become a matter of great importance. Atomic swaps allow connecting otherwise isolated blockchains while adhering to the core principles of censorship resistance and permissionlessnes. Up until recently, atomic swap protocols have mostly relied on complex script support, excluding certain types of blockchains. With advances in cryptography, it is now possible to build a bridge between almost any two blockchains. In this work, we…

A TLA+ Formal Proof of a Cross-Chain Swap
This paper provides a formally proved Byzantine fault-tolerant protocol that satisfies the swap specification and abstracts the blockchain enough to suit various distributed ledger frameworks aiming to perform a cross-chain swap.
Blockchain Interoperability: Towards a Sustainable Payment System
A systematic review of the existing literature on Blockchain interoperability and atomic cross-chain transactions, investigating different blockchain interoperability approaches, categorized them and identified the key mechanisms used, and list several example projects for each category.

One-Time Verifiably Encrypted Signatures A.K.A. Adaptor Signatures
This work conducts the first formal analysis of the adaptor signature as an isolated primitive and finds that it offers similar functionality to the already well established concept of verifiably encrypted signatures (VES) with one notable difference: the decryption key can be recovered from the ciphertext and the decrypted signature.
