World's First Dex For Native Bitcoin Cross-Chain Swaps

$ATMQ Utility

$ATMQ is the native token in Atomiq’s ecosystem offering the following key utilities:

Priority Access & Allocation

Staking: Allows for priority access & allocation to token sales on the launchpad. Also, acts an an insurance policy preventing any false allocation requests that don’t get fulfilled.

Launchpad Access

The $ATMQ Token can also be used to purchase tokens of new project listings on the launchpad.

DEX Integration

Staking Functionality will also be a part of our DEX, where users who built a strong score as a result of staking will get access to better fees and priority transaction ordering.

Governance / Voting Rights

$ATMQ token holders can shape the future of the Bitcoin ecosystem by participating in governance of the Atomiq DeFi platform.

Our Backers

First project incubated and powered by the Mintlayer Protocol. Awarded a $1.5 Million Grant from the Mintlayer Ecosystem.

"We're incredibly proud to have Atomiq DeFi as the first project incubated by the Mintlayer Ecosystem Fund. And Trust that under Zaid Ismail's guidance, we're set to revolutionize Bitcoin DeFi, offering true interoperability with Bitcoin trough Atomic Swaps offering a truly decentralized way to exchange Bitcoin with any kind of asset issued on Mintlayer"

Enrico Rubboli

Mintlayer Founder

"The introduction of Atomiq DeFi's Atomic Swap-powered DEX marks a pivotal moment for Bitcoin. It's a testament to the innovative spirit driving the DeFi space, and a clear sign that Bitcoin's untapped potential is finally being realized."

Frequently Asked Questions

When Is The TGE?

The $ATMQ Token Generation Event & CEX Listings will be in Q3. Stay tuned for exact dates and details announcing soon.

Which Launchpads And Exchanges Will Atomiq DeFi Be Launching On?

We are currently in the final stages of negotiations with various tier 1 launchpads and are also in discussion with a number of centralized exchanges for $ATMQ to be listed on.  Once finalized, we will make the announcements across all our channels.

Where Will I Be Able To Purchase $ATMQ?

Initially, you will be able to purchase $ATMQ through partner launchpads. Once the Seed Round is concluded we will launch our very own Atomiq Pad for the Public Sale and list on top centralized exchanges, where you will also be able to buy $ATMQ. We are in the final stages of discussion with Launchpad and exchanges and will make the announcements once finalized.

What Are Atomic Swaps?

Atomic swaps, often described as the “holy grail” of interoperability in the world of blockchain, are a type of smart contract technology that enables the exchange of cryptocurrencies on different blockchains without using wrapped tokens.

An atomic swap involves creating a Hashed Time Lock Contract (HTLC), a type of smart contract that ensures an all-or-nothing simultaneous transfer of assets. In essence, either both parties successfully exchange their crypto, or the transaction doesn’t take place at all.

Atomiq DeFi is developing a Decentralized Exchange (DEX) for atomic swaps, which will enable you to swap native Bitcoin for stablecoins or any MLS-based token on the Mintlayer network.

Why Are You Building On Mintlayer?

We wanted to be a part of unlocking Bitcoin DeFi to the masses. However, we saw that the only current options for accomplishing DeFi on Bitcoin were either building on layer 1 with protocols like Ordinals, which congested the Bitcoin network and had limited functionality, or accessing DeFi through the use of some kind of wrapped form of Bitcoin, which introduced more counterparty risk to the user. Then we found out about the Mintlayer protocol that used a separate layer 2 sidechain it eliminated congestion issues that plagued layer 1 protocols, and with their Atomic Swaps technology, they eliminated the need and risks associated with wrapped tokens. On top of this, the protocol is built from the ground up using Rust for node development, with extensive testing and a primary focus on security and reliability.

Because of these factors, we see Mintlayer as the best new protocol to build on in the current Bitcoin DeFi ecosystem.

How Much Funding Has Atomiq DeFi Received?

Atomiq DeFi initially received $1.5 million from the Mintlayer Ecosystem fund, which not only helped with funding but also incubated and continues to guide Atomiq DeFi to success.

Currently, the company is about to close a $3 million seed round and has already secured its led investor, X21 digital. Many other notable venture capital firms are joining the round, such as AlphaBit Fund, NXGen, Dutch Crypto Investors (DCI Capital), Spicy Capital, and Altcoin Buzz.

What Is The Mintlayer Ecosystem Fund?

The Mintlayer Ecosystem Fund consists of an incubator, an accelerator, and a grant initiative. It seeks to help build the Bitcoin DeFi ecosystem by funding and nurturing concepts to fruition and accelerating the growth of larger projects.

What Makes Atomiq DeFi Unique?

What makes Atomiq DeFi unique is that it is the first to build a suite of dApps powered by Mintlayer Atomic swaps. These Atomic swaps are unique in the space because they allow direct Bitcoin use within dApps without the need for wrapped tokens or centralized intermediaries. Most other current projects either build on layer 1 or use layer 2 but use DeFi through wrapped, pegged, or federated tokens.
