Introducing Our New Boltz Web App
We are thrilled to finally ship our all-new web app, bringing together Liquid & Bitcoin mainchain swaps under one roof, enabling swaps to taproot addresses & more 🔥
For those short on time, here's a quick overview of the key features of our new web app, now available at boltz.exchange:
🏠 United Liquid & mainchain swaps: one web app to swap them all
⬆️ Increased Liquid swap limits: Now up to 0.1 BTC
🥕 Swap to Taproot addresses: now supporting bech32m
🧅 Enhanced privacy: Liquid swaps available via onion domain
📱App Store censorship resistance: install as Progressive Web App
🧮 Exact on-chain amounts: swap to pay with precision down to the satoshi
Let's take a trip down memory lane. This marks the release of our third major web app version, and boy, have times changed. Here's a glimpse of how our web app looked when we first released Boltz back in April 2019:
We let michael1011’s comment on his work speak for itself: “This is what happens if you force a backend developer to write a frontend because you have no one else to do it”. However, it served its purpose at the time: a functional proof of concept that made submarine swaps easy and accessible for non-technical users.
In 2020, we made the leap to version two, collaborating with an actual frontend developer this time 👨💻. This update significantly enhanced reliability, introduced a dedicated mobile version, and much more. This web app has been powering Boltz ever since—until today.
Today, we're excited to unveil the third edition of our web app. Designed for the future, it's highly extensible and utilizes modern web frameworks like SolidJS. It also leverages state-of-the-art cryptographic libraries such as secp256k1-zkp which is integrated via WebAssembly and runs directly in your browser.
Don’t trust, verify!
We encourage our technical users to exercise caution by not solely relying on the web app served from our domain. Verify that the code does exactly what we claim and run the web app directly from source.
🌊 Dedicated "Liquidity" Tab: Obtain a specific amount of inbound or outbound liquidity via our web app, along with numerous other features and subtle improvements.
🥕 Taproot Native Swaps: Enhancing privacy and significantly reducing on-chain footprint, particularly for mainchain swaps.
⛓️ Taproot-based L-BTC/BTC chain-to-chain swaps.
We’d love to hear from you!
