Description

What is the future of decentralised exchanges? Is it possible to have them with fiat gateways? Many of the same mechanisms (ex. multisignature, timelocks) that allow the Lightning Network and payment channels to function will also be useful in building decentralised exchanges such as Bisq (https://bisq.network/). Except for cash, there is always a certain degree of risk when exchanging for fiat, because they use centralised systems and transactions can be reversed.
