Trustswap ($SWAP) Explained – Next generation of DeFi Transactions

Trustswap is the next evolution of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) transactions solving major problems with subscriptions, split payments, and cross-chain token swaps. A cross-chain “smart swap” system is used to wrap any token or coin (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Monero, Ripple, Cardano) into an ERC20. A trustless decentralized escrow service at the core of Trustswap provides an easy way to split payments into timed batches. The project provides an easy way for developers to accept payments for annual subscriptions where both parties can trust that payments are completed in a timely manner. This technology is essential for the investment space as token distributions are split into tranches. Trustswap conducted an Initial Liquidity Offering for the SWAP token in June 2020.

Trustless escrow and split payments

Two party swaps on Trustswap

The initial application of the Trust Swap is within the ICO & cryptocurrency investment space where token distribution needs to be split into tranches. Trust swap does this automatically, cutting out the need for lawyers and contract underwriters to complete the transactions. This means that instead of trusting expensive third parties, VC and projects and directly complete their transactions on the blockchain.

Decentralized Subscription and payment model

Trustswap is implementing a “Two-party time-release payment” geared towards subscription payments and consumer transactions. The current industry trend for services is transitioning towards a monthly subscription model (such as Adobe Creative Cloud, Spotify, Apple TV). Currently, cryptocurrency transactions are single payment – a model that doesn’t suite service-based networks very well. Trustswap will allow an easy method for developers to add support for accepting annual subscriptions – improving how cryptocurrencies can be spent and used.

Cross-chain and multi-currency support

TrustSwap supports a multi-currency future with the ability to customize payment services in a wide range of cryptocurrencies and tokens. Trustswap will be able to wrap different cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Vechain, and other different cryptocurrencies to trade. This will make it easy for different communities to collaborate with each other and complete payments.
