XMR-BTC Atomic Swap ASB Guide

A tutorial made for myself, not really others because the docs aren’t straight forward!

  1. Download ASB and Swap zips
  2. Extract to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Monero or ~/Documents/Monero
  3. Run the monero-rpc-wallet (pre-req: add monero install location to PATH)
    • Find stagenet node
    • Use port 28088 if mainnet/production
    • Security risk: rpc-login is disabled
    • wallet-dir: directory of an existing wallet (match to stagenet or mainnet)
    C:\Users\maste\Documents\Monero>monero-wallet-rpc --stagenet --daemon-host http://stagenet.melo.tools:38081 --rpc-bind-port 38083 --disable-rpc-login --wallet-dir wallets/stagenet_one
    
  4. Make sure this guide is readable with your terminal open
  5. Run asb --testnet start in a new terminal window and press enter for everything. Do not use Ctrl or Alt.
  6. A wallet will be created in 10 seconds
  7. If you close the ASB and want to start it again, restart the RPC to avoid a “wallet already exists error” from the ASB
