How do other users know that a currency you own is available for swap/trade through the app?

First, you have to transfer the currency you want to trade/swap from Private Holding to Public Holding. Then you would automatically be included in the Public Holders list of owners of that currency that other users can send an offer to.

Once you receive an offer, you have three options: You can accept, reject or create a counter offer.
