GIFTO Token Swap Announcement
GIFTO token swap announcement has been published. It’s time to upgrade your GTO tokens! The GFT token is here, and the GTO to GFT token swap begins last January 12th, 2023.
To ease the process for all GTO holders, GIFTO has created a GTO to GFT Token Swap Portal for users holding GTO ERC20 on-chain to let you swap your tokens manually, as well as a swap form for users holding GTO-908 on BEP2.
With the successful completion of the GFT token rebrand, GIFTO is excited to move forward and implement its plans for 2023.
Old GTO token contract addresses:
- GTO (ERC20): https://etherscan.io/token/0xc5bbae50781be1669306b9e001eff57a2957b09d
- GTO (GTO-908 — BEP2): https://explorer.bnbchain.org/asset/GTO-908
New GFT token contract address:
The GTO to GFT token swap is 1:1 and a one-way process in which all swapped GTO ERC20 and GTO BEP2 tokens will be burnt to prevent the double circulation of tokens.
- If your GTO tokens are held on a CEX, such as Binance, you shall not need to do anything. Normally, exchanges will perform the token upgrade from GTO to GFT for users directly, and each exchange will provide information about it in their Official Announcements. Conversations are ongoing with exchanges to support the swap.
- If your ERC20 GTO tokens are stored in your own wallet, you will need to use the GTO Swap Portal to upgrade your on-chain tokens to GFT: https://swap.gifto.io/
- If your BEP2 GTO token is in your own wallet, you will need to fill out the provided Google Form and our team will perform the swap for you manually: https://forms.gle/2knMmyD2iV52jXjk6
- Please note that the majority of GTO tokens are ERC20, with only a small portion remaining on the BEP2 Beacon Chain. As a result, the GTO Swap Portal designs specifically for swapping GTO ERC20 tokens for GFT BEP20 tokens.
- It may take several days or even weeks for all exchanges, informational websites, and wallet services to update and reflect the new GFT token. Please be patient.
What you need to know
- Gifto will support the old GTO tokens for a minimum of three months starting from the start of the swap day (12th January 2023). After this period, which should be sufficient time for all community members to complete the swap, the team will reassess the need for extending the swap period.
- Ultimately, Gifto will shift its focus to product releases and new developments in 2023, and any exceptional cases after the swap deadline will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis at Gifto’s discretion.
- The Gifto project will retain its name and will only be updating its logo and ticker symbol from $GTO to $GFT
- Do not transfer the new GFT token to any exchanges unless they have explicitly announced that they support it. It is always important to check with the exchange announcements page, if you do decide to transfer the tokens, we recommend starting with a small amount as a test.
- It may take some time for wallets and other services to display the new GFT name. Please be patient.
