AirSwap is a protocol that facilitates a peer-to-peer ecosystem for trading tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. AirSwap decentralizes trade matching by using smart contracts to automatically pair up buyers and sellers. The AST token allows traders to signal an 'intent to trade' to the order matching process and grants voting power in managing the platform's oracles. Airswap is a Consensys formation, a venture studio for a variety of Ethereum-based dApps. Michael Oved and Don Mosites co-founded the New York-based Airswap in 2017.
