    ===========================================




    ===========================================

    Welcome to Swap, where anything you can do, we can do better and for free.


    We have touched on the three major core values that we have which are fairness, efficiency, and stability. Now we would like to discuss how we are going to achieve these objectives and what we have already accomplished to date.

    Swap is a fork of Haven Protocol which is ultimately just a fork of Monero. However, we started with a genesis block and changed several key parameters to how the blockchain functioned in effort to begin with some basic network security. This included a custom 15s block time and a custom version of the CryptoNight algorithm that we ended up calling CN Superfast because it is CN Heavy with a 2MB scratchpad and one quarter the iterations. The faster block time creates many blocks a day which allows even small pools to win blocks rather frequently. This helps with miner distribution as being on the biggest pool to get frequent payouts no longer matters as there are EIGHT times more block per day but at one eighth the reward for the same emission. Transaction fees were also increased which gives incentives to mine more than just empty blocks but overall, the transaction fee is expected to drop for the end-user due to a much smaller transaction size. At max block size, miner reward is expected to increase which makes up for the extra resources necessary to process the bulletproof transaction. Meanwhile the custom algorithm change prevented us from being Nicehashable.

    We envision this project as a guide of what crypto should be. Unlike the vast majority of crypto projects, the core team associated with this project is mostly not anonymous. While none of us are actively promoting who we are, we aren't exactly hiding it either. We are quite transparent and all decision making processes in the birth of this coin to now is readily viewable on our Discord. We believe this is a testament to the fact that we simply want you to base your opinions not on who we are, but on the technology this project brings to the crypto ecosystem. We also put forth a call for any developers who would like to help build an ecosystem based on principles of fairness and openness to join us. This is a community project after all! Our ultimate goal is to create a stable blockchain that developers can build their products on top of without fear of some random agent bending the blockchain to their will, upsetting the desired stability necessary to take crypto to the next level of global acceptance and use. Also, differently from most of the crypto projects, Swap has ZERO premine, ZERO dev fees, and ZERO founders rewards. It's a community project after all, and that will never change.

    We started with RingCT at block 0. We have version 2 transactions from block 0 along with dynamic fees. The reward tax will not change, only other taxes. Our chain is more consistent than Monero's as we started with the majority of improvements that Monero implemented over time. At block 150k, we completed our rebase to the Monero codebase 0.13.04 and we activated our bulletproof implementation. Also, from block 150k, we can now merge their patches easily in the future yet still go our own path.

    Speaking of going our own path, we are convinced that the CryptoNight algorithm (and all its variants) is garbage for anything but Monero. The algorithm promotes through its virtues of obfuscation, inequalities that cannot be compensated for. This required us to abandon CryptoNight in search of an algorithm or algorithms that more serve our needs for fairness and openness.
    To summarize in brief, we explored primarily Cuckaroo (same used by Grin) algorithm variants for our proof of work. The simpler the algorithm, the less advantage those with the means shall have. A simple algorithm that is open source is the first step in securing the block chain as it helps to level the playing field.

    Swap has forked at block 555,555 to a new and unique variant of Cuckaroo which we have labeled "Cuckaroo29s". We have in essence smashed together CryptoNight with Cuckaroo so that we can retain the desirable features of CryptoNote but also improve our network security with a better pow than any CryptoNight variant which has been proven to be easily FPGA'd or ASIC'd. There are a tremendous amount of improvements with the changes that have been made. Cuckaroo demands also far less CPU power to validate the blocks and sync with the network than CryptoNight and its variants. Currently we have a minimum 5.5GB memory requirement for mining until more optimized mining softwares for 4GB cards are made.

    We have a mandatory network upgrade coming up at block 750000, which will take place on 03/26/2019 @ 1:24am (UTC), so everyone should upgrade to version 2.8.1:
    Release Swap 2.8 "Cuculidae" . swap-dev/swap . GitHub

    [Pool Operators only] will need to upgrade their node-cryptoforknote-util module prior to the fork (npm update and restart the pool module).

    MicroPool users simply need to make sure they are using at least version 1.1 of the MicroPool software.

    There will also be a version 3.0.0 that will likely be published before the fork, with slightly better performances and a few additional features, but that will be an optional upgrade from v2.8.1 (i.e. a soft-fork with no changes in block-level consensus).
    Upgrading to 2.8.1 will ensure that you will remain on the correct chain post-fork.

    Swap was listed on TradeOgre exchange. The BTC/XWP market is now open there. Have a nice trading.

    Just a moment...
