I've attempted to explain the details of cross-chain atomic swap in this blog post.

@donpdonp Did you look at how this might be achieved on second layers like e.g. Lightning Network? Would of course be pretty awesome to use existing payment channels for that, both for fees and privacy. I vaguely remember someone having proposed that in the past.

@raucao ive looked at lightening network on its own and a remember thinking the inner workings had surprising similarities to atomic swap.
