What is an Atomic Swap?

An atomic transaction is an indivisible and irreducible series of database operations such that either all occur, or nothing occurs. A guarantee of atomicity prevents updates to the database occurring only partially, which can cause greater problems than rejecting the whole series outright.

Not to be confused with a Lightning Network (LN) off chain atomic swap which does not guarantee the above.
