SwapSteem - BitShares UIA ( User Issued Assets ) market is now live!





Swapsteem is a peer to peer exchange for Steem blockchain. We are creating a platform for Steem users to enable P2P trading of STEEM/SBD to different Fiat and Crypto Currencies using secure escrow transactions. This post is regarding the new p2p token markets we have added at Swapsteem to enable trading BTS User Issued Assets for STEEM/SBD securely with other steemians

What is BitShares and UIA

Bitshares is a graphene based blockchain that works on the DPOS algorithm for mining blocks. The Witness system in bitshares makes it faster than other POW based blockchains along with ability to create custom tokens called User Issued Assets on the blockchain.

User Issued Assets are the tokens that are issued on the Bitshares network. Anyone can issue their own assets called bitAssets backed by a real or virtual asset.

Some of the popular bitAssets are bitUSD, bitCNY, OPEN.BTC etc.

Problem Domain

BTS UIA token is a multi-million market with some big exchanges like open ledger working on the bishares blockchain. Having a pair with STEEM and SBD will provide further liquidity and adoption to Steem blockchain.


As of now there no direct trading pairs in any market for BTS UIAs and STEEM based coins. At Swapsteem, we have currently enabled BNB Tokens on the Demo, but we are planning to list more BTS UIAs on the Beta as well soon.


There is no way to determine the price of any BTS UIAs in terms of Steem directly as of now. At Swapsteem demo, we enable p2p trading for TRON based tokens with prices derived relative to BTC at the time of order creation. The price can NOT be changed after order creation. The prices will be made real-time once we have enough exchanges supporting those tokens listed on @coingecko since we only rely on the @coingecko open source API.


At Swapsteem, We take a fee of 2% of the trade amount for FIAT and TOKEN markets and 1% of the trade amount for CRYPTO markets, which are the current standard fees. We also give discounts to delegators as mentioned in our fundition campaign.


When you deposit your funds to an exchange, you actually don't own your funds anymore. The exchange might be hacked or taken down at any time and you may lose your funds as seen in many previous cases. At Swapsteem, We respect the proof of keys movement. You never have to deposit your funds to @swapsteem. Upon creation of an Order, the STEEM/SBD funds will need to be moved into a Steem escrow transaction with @swapsteem as an agent by the Seller. Only the Seller can release the funds in the Escrow until a dispute is created. In case of dispute, @swapsteem will have authority to move funds to either the Seller or the Buyer depending upon the proofs produced by them in the Dispute resolution process. The funds in Escrow can never be sent to anyone other than the traders involved, not even to the agent account. So you can be sure about the security of your funds in escrow.

Whats Next

  • Add Instant Swap Feature
  • Add Refer and Earn Feature
  • Add Steem Keychain for Additional Security
  • Update the UI for a better experience
  • Add More Token markets and pairs

First, I want to apologize for how long it's taken us to get to this post. There's a reason for it, and one none of us is overly happy about.

When the moderator went over your post and did some checking, he discovered that 14 paragraphs were plagiarized from the following sources:

This was distressing to the mods and myself, and we took some time to decide how to address it. While we have certainly seen our fair share of plagiarism from contributors, it is not something we are used to seeing from project owners.

As you know, Utopian's Blog category is about original content. We want to promote open source projects, yes. But not when they are violating other people's intellectual property.

Because you've been working towards this stage of Swapsteem's existence for a significant time, and have made so much progress, this post will not be flagged or put on our banned list. That list has implications that could be very damaging to you, and I don't want that.

However, any post you create with our tags in the next 2 weeks will be ignored, and any further acts of plagiarism will result in a ban and a potential flag.

I am sorry it has come to this, and hope it goes no further.


Thank you for the honest feedback and review. We agree the plagiarizm should not be encouraged at all and already have taken actions to prevent such things in future.
We apologise for the plagiarized content and promise that it won't happen again and we will have strong plagiarism checks on all the content being published by accounts associated to out team. I have also edited the Post and removed plagiarized content and updated it.
Please could you reconsider the ban as we had some task Requests to be taken care of given our launch is so close.
Hope to get a positive reply.
