Native IOTX Wallets Now Available & ERC20-to-Native IOTX Swap Guide


It has been an exciting month since Mainnet Alpha went live! Over the past few weeks, we not only welcomed new Delegates and expanded to 18 Consensus Delegates, but we also built new user-friendly tools for the IoTeX community. In this blog post, we provide an overview of ERC20 vs. native IOTX and our current wallet tools to store, swap, and stake/vote your IOTX.

ERC20-IOTX and Native IOTX tokens

As we shared in our previous blog post, there are currently two versions of the IOTX token: ERC20-IOTX and Native IOTX. The value of these tokens is the same (1:1 swap), but they are currently used for different things:

  • ERC20-IOTX: used for staking/voting on Ethereum. ERC20-IOTX has traded on Binance, Bittrex, Upbit, Kucoin, Gate, etc. for the past year.
  • Native IOTX: used for txns and smart contracts on IoTeX Mainnet. This is NEW token trading on PIEXGO (BTC, ETH, USDT pairs) as of May 22!

These two tokens will coexist for the next few months. In late Q3, there will be an official token swap via exchanges, after which the native token will be used for staking/voting, transactions, and smart contracts on the IoTeX Mainnet. Until then, we invite you to test and swap your ERC20 IOTX to Native IOTX before the official token swap, however it is not required. To swap tokens, use our tool here:

Swap IOTX to IOTX-E

member.iotex.io/tools/ERC-20

:warning: DO NOT send tokens to the smart contracts directly using wallets! We highly recommend using our web tool to process the token swap. If you want to do it manually with wallets, please make sure you INTERACT WITH CONTRACT instead of transferring tokens to the addresses.

:warning: REMINDER: do not send ERC20-IOTX from an exchange wallet or hardware wallet to the swap address — you MUST have the private key! You will lose your tokens if you do so! Instead, transfer from exchange or hardware wallet → normal wallet → swap address.

:warning: If you processed the swap with the old address (0x0xB907****6fc3) before 6/18/2019 PDT but failed to receive the native tokens, don’t worry — you will receive the pending swap IOTX (native) in the coming 1–2 days.
