According to them, this decision is caused by accidental deletion of the signature key of the app. The developers assured the users that this measure is forced, and promised to fix the errors soon, releasing the corresponding update for this Android-application.

ACINQ has already removed the Eclair app from the Google Play and the link to the installation file from the Github.

The release of the mobile purse Eclair with support for Lightning Network was held on April 4.

Switcheo announced the official launch of the atomic swaps feature for the Ethereum and NEO blockchains.

From now on, Switcheo users have access to the inter-block exchange of their own token exchange, SWTH and ETH, which allows for the transfer of assets between two markets represented on the trading platform and makes Switcheo the first decentralized exchange that implements this functionality.

A challenge with existing trustless exchanges is that trades are confined to individual blockchains, limiting the market combinations that can be offered to users” says . With the launch of the new feature, users can now trade conveniently between ETH and NEO markets, while retaining full custody of their funds.

According to the developers, the technology of atomic swaps has been known for several years, but is not widely used, since its implementation in practice is quite problematic. Switcheo lead developer John Wong explained that his team spent a lot of time adapting the process to the user's needs and achieved the desired result.
