What is Swap Now?

Swap is a system of trade in which goods and services are exchanged for other goods and services without the use of money as a medium of exchange.

“Swap Now” is a feature on Adpost that empowers Adpost community members to request or offer Swaps.

For example, a member can state an item’s price in USDT (Tether).

Any individual or business that is open to accepting USDT on Polygon in exchange for their products or services.

List of Prohibited items:

-Drugs
-Firearms
-Any items that are or are made from or include any part of an animal that is subject to regulations or laws for the protection of live animals, including endangered/exotic species

-Any and all such items as may be restricted or otherwise limited by applicable laws

USDT (Tether) is a cryptocurrency that is designed to be stable in value and pegged to the value of US dollar.

Using  USDT on Polygon allows for lower transaction fees for swaps and exchanges. At the same time, the transaction is permanently recorded. The Swap Now feature also allows for the Web3 Escrow protection to offer more security to the Buyer and the Seller.

USDT is issued by a company called Tether Limited, and it is meant to be backed by a corresponding US dollar held in reserve by the company. This means that, in theory, each USDT should be worth approximately one US dollar.
