README.md

Welcome to the Blocknet repository. This repo is for the Blocknet Protocol, a 2nd layer blockchain interoperability protocol that enables communication, interaction, and exchange between different blockchains. This allows for the development of multi-chain applications and blockchain microservices, creating exponentially more capabilities and possibilities for the blockchain ecosystem.

Contributors are welcome!

Blocknet

Started in 2014, Blocknet is a decentralized, community-governed, self-funded, open-source project that serves as a connector between different blockchains, markets, and communities.

The Blocknet Protocol

The Blocknet Protocol enables decentralized communication and exchange between different blockchains in a permissionless and trustless manner through the use of the TCP/IP networking layer for communication, P2P atomic swaps using BIP65 for exchange, and a DHT overlay network (Service Nodes) to host the full nodes of compatible blockchains, host microservices, audit interactions, and perform anti-spam and anti-DOS measures for the network.

Block DX

Block DX is a completely decentralized and trustless exchange built on the Blocknet Protocol that mimics a centralized exchange experience and enables traders to conduct exchanges directly from the wallets of the coins being traded. View Repo: [https://github.com/BlocknetDX/block-dx]

Decentralized Atomic Swap Algo Summary

Initiator creates secret X, and hashes it to create H(X). Initiator also creates public private key pair (pubkey i1,i2 / privkey i2,i2). Responder creates public private key pair (pubkey r1,r2 / privkey r1,r2).

Step 2.
Initiator shares H(X) and pubkey i2 with responder. Responder shares pubkey r1 with intiator.

Step 3.
Initiator creates TxAb. TxAb can be redeemed after time T2 with privkey i1. At any time TxAb can redeemed with signature from privkey r1 and reveal of secret X. Initiator broadcasts TxAb onto the network.

Step 4.
Responder confirms TxAb. Responder creates TxBb. TxBb can be redeemed after T1 time with privkey r2. At any time TxBb can be redeemed with signature fom privkey i2 and reveal of secret X. Responder broadcasts TxBb onto the network.

Step 5.
Initiator creates TxBp which spends TxBb using privkey i2 and secret X. With the revealed secret, responder can create TxAp which spends TxAb with privkey r1 and secret X.
