Stable Network No Fee No Premine No BS
Fork 2/20 10:30 AM UTCSwap Wallet 2.0
Total number of supply is 18,400,000 XWP. Mining Swap uses Cuckaroo29s Cycle PoW with a 15 second block time. Block timing is regulated using Monero DAA.
Cuckaroo29s hashing improves verification speed substancially making block propagation much faster.Cuckaroo29s
CryptoNote protocol based privacy standards for transactions.
Decreases cryptographic proof sizes.
Faster confirmations and higher transaction throughput.
Improved network performance and stability.
Establishes a working economy discouraging the mining of empty blocks.
Encouraging early adoption and early network security.
Born without governance fees and staying without governance fees. Swap does use miner fees to incentivize network security.
Equal, fair, and open community release.

Current project milestones and future short-term goals.
Simply speaking, Haven added fees, so the community made a free coin. Thus the birth of the "FreeHaven" project.
Faster 15 second blocktime, no premine, no fees, and the best part.. no BS.
Community members decided to completely break away from Haven by rebranding to Swap.
Not only a name change but also cutting all coding ties to Haven. Swap is rebased from Monero adding BulletProof transactions.
Swap is the first CryptoNote coin to integrate the Cuckaroo Cycle PoW for fair mining.
The change brings the Swap network superior protection and stability.
Mobile and web wallet support coming soon.
Listing to an exchanges will become a priority after a successful fork to Cuckaroo29s Cycle PoW.
Swap is a community project with people contributing from around the world.
We use Moneros way of handling transactions (BulletProof) and a Grins-like way of mining (Cuckaroo29s Cycle PoW). Swap will stay close to Monero technology-wise while not using their PoW algorithm that requires constant forking, destroying decentralization.
Our main objective is to remain an ethical useful technology. To us, this includes fairness, transparency, security, and ease of use. With Swap you can expect no compromises with governance fees, no premine, and no BS.
Besides running a node to support the network, it would be helpful to learn more about the technology. It's easier to explain things when you understand them and you can better form opinions about the technology's potential, or lack thereof.
The best thing is bringing more people in, all kinds of people, regardless of coding skill, and also haters, because they help to make the community more robust.
CryptoNight is slow on GPUs because FGPAs can use embedded RAM. Further variants of CryptoNight will buy time but do not solve anything long-term. Cuckaroo Cycle PoW brings superior protection and stability to the Swap network.
The change will happen once the technology is stable. With proper planning and testing, the transition will be smooth.
No, MimbleWimble is the protocol (like CryptoNote), Cuckoo is the original algorithm Cuckatoo and Cuckaroo are based on. Cuckatoo is the ASIC friendly algorithm and Cuckaroo is the GPU friendly algorithm. Swap will stay with the GPU friendly algorithm, Cuckaroo.
Yes, the exchanges listing process will start after the fork.
Swap is the first CryptoNote coin securing their network by implementing mining with the Cuckaroo Cycle PoW.
"With a 42-line complete specification, Cuckatoo Cycle is less than half the size of either SHA256 or Blake2b.
While trivially verifiable, finding a 42-cycle, on the other hand, is far from trivial, requiring considerable resources."
- John Tromp
Step one is removing edges that are not part of a cycle (99.9%). Step two is a backtracking graph traversal to find all cycles.
Swap uses 32 edge trimming cycles.
Miners use 1 bit per edge and 1 bit per node. Finding node bits in random sequence causes a bottleneck which makes mining memory latency bound.
The majority of this form of mining is done in a very simple way.
Less server overhead making processing more efficient.
Swap is keeping CryptoNote for transactions with anonymity features and user friendliness. Meanwhile, for mining, adpoting Cuckaroo29s with superior network protection and stability.
CryptoNight mining is vulnerable to FPGA and ASIC network attacking.
Cuckaroo29 uses 42-cycles while Cuckaroo29s uses 32-cycles. Both cycling ratios produce similar performances. Check the Whitepaper for details.
