What Is Swixer?

There is a growing need on the part of cryptocurrency enthusiasts to convert between various currencies on the fly. Coin mixers have proven to be rather popular in this regard over the years. Swixer aims to achieve a similar goal, although the team is mainly interested in showing the world that this can be done in a completely anonymous manner.

The Idea Behind Swixer

Cryptocurrency coin mixers usually require a lot of trust and lack anonymity. Swixer is intent on solving at least one of these problems in the coming months by allowing the exchange of tokens anonymously. Built by the Sentinel team, it is the team’s first utility which allows for instant online anonymous cryptocurrency and token conversions.

How Does it Work?

On the surface, some people would compare Swixer to ShapeShift or Changelly. In reality, this new mixer works a bit differently. It uses cross-chain swaps between the Ethereum chain and other blockchains. However, this functionality is only extended to blockchains which offer a working anonymity protocol. At this stage, that list includes both BNB and PIVX. Other currencies and tokens may be added to this list as time progresses.

The currency conversion process looks and feels very similar to ShapeShift. Users will receive the best possible rate, although it will only be an estimate. There is also a 0.2% transaction fee, which is more than acceptable for such a conversion system. With no signup or login requirements, the servers maintains one’s anonymity at all times.

There are some caveats to using this service. Swixer is, on paper, not available to residents of the US, which is only to be expected at this point in time. Nor is this platform designed to be used by trusts or any of their fiduciaries. Nor are users allowed to use this service if the decision to do so was made inside the USA or prompted by anyone residing in the country. The team takes no responsibility for any illicit money laundering activity taking place through this platform or its service.

Final Thoughts

On paper, it is good to see a mixer come to market with a focus on anonymity currencies. Although the exchange of such currencies has always been possible, it usually requires an account with a centralized exchange, which erodes any privacy these coins bring to the table. As such, Swixer may prove to be a viable alternative, even though it is still limited to just a few blockchains at this time.

Monero Price Analysis: Price Stable, XMR is Bullish above $100

36 hours after hard forking and Monero buyers are yet to confirm Oct 15 gains. If anything, there seems to be resistance for upsides and this is negative for bulls. Anyhow, we suggest aggressive buyers to load at spot prices with stops at $190 while risk-averse traders should be on the side lines until there are gains above $150. Such gains will most likely trigger a torrent of buyers aiming at $300 and higher. Latest Monero News Talk of privacy coins won’t leave Monero out and for good reasons. While the coin is not short of opposition, Monero is one of the most liquid and capitalized coin around. It’s on the top 10 meaning it’s an on-demand. However, that’s not what we are after. A coin is only as good as the team that is working behind it. From GitHub and the release by Monero Labs, it is obvious that Monero is one of the most active coins around. And there we are, transactions using Bulletproofs are now live on Monero mainnet https://t.co/Lag7K0j1r5 — Howard Chu (@hyc_symas) October 18, 2018 Yesterday’s hard fork went on to cement the general objective of the coin: that of reinvigorating its mission of providing privacy and safeguarding the interest of users. With Bullet proofs, Monero is now cheaper to use because what they did is reduce the size of transaction size from 13.5 KB to 2.5 KB which in proof of work system translates to reduction of network fees. Aside from that, the team went ahead and increased the number of rings from seven to 11 further enhancing the privacy of the network. Another stand out about Monero is their mission of rejecting ASIC miners in their midst. To achieve this rather hard duty, the team regularly update the core, evolving before the designers behind Bitmain’s miners ran havoc by centralizing the network. By itself, this is problematic and an existential threat to the network. Monero Price Analysis Weekly Chart Two things are visible from the weekly chart. First, the simple fact that XMR is oscillating within a tight range marked by $75 on the lower side and $150 on the upsides. Secondly, the last two months or so price action has failed to break and close above or below week ending Aug 5 and 12 high lows. This means after 10 weeks of higher highs, bulls are yet to reverse two weeks of sell pressure meaning bears are technically in charge and we could possibly see XMR drift towards $75 or Aug lows. However, given the length of consolidation in lower time frames, conservative set of traders should stay on the sidelines waiting for conclusive breaks above $150—for buyers to be in control, or below $75 as prices melt down towards $20. Daily Chart Back to the daily chart and the last few days price action could be positive for price. After all, Monero prices are down more than 80 percent following this year’s strong price correction, and Fibonacci retracement rules hints of upward pressure around these price tags. Anyway, we retain a bullish outlook in lower time frames as long as prices are trending inside Oct 15 high low and above $100. Like in our last Monero price analysis, bulls should load at spot prices with stops at Oct 15 lows at around $190. Any sharp losses revert us back to neutral but should there be momentum then our first targets would be at $150.
