Where to exchange your AWC?
BEP-2 AWC & ERC-20 AWC
In 2019, AWC was migrated to the Binance blockchain, with 50% of the token's supply getting issued under the BEP-2 protocol. The two resulting assets are easy to tell apart in the app: the token based on the Ethereum blockchain ( ERC-20 AWC) features a blue icon, whereas the Binance-based token ( BEP-2 AWC) has a yellow one. It can be tricky at first to figure out how to exchange the latter, but don't worry, we have your back.
How to swap your ERC-20 AWC for BEP-2 AWC
Since staking is only available for the token based on the Binance blockchain, you may be willing to trade your ERC-20 AWC for it. In that case, our partners over at ChangeNow have you covered. For more details on how to swap your tokens at 1:1 rate, refer to our step-by-step guide here.
In-app exchange ( ERC-20 AWC only)
While we also think it would be amazing to be able to swap AWC BNB in the wallet itself, there are currently no exchanges with enough liquidity for that, supported by our exchange partner.
Our exchange partners offer full support only for the Ethereum-based AWC. The token is available in the Exchange tab in the app, which makes trading it pretty straightforward. Keep in mind you'll still need to have a small amount of ETH on your address to pay the network fees for the exchange.
Binance DEX & a quick note for US residents
You can trade your BEP-2 AWC for BNB at Binance and then exchange your newly acquired BNB for any available coin of your liking. Refer to our guide on how to trade AWC at Binance DEX here for more details.
If Binance is banned in your country (which is the case with the US), just use one of the exchanges listed below. Alternatively, try accessing Binance via a VPN.
Please note that if you send your ERC-20 AWC to an exchange that only offers support for the BEP-2 token (or vice versa), your assets will be lost.
- Uniswap (AWC → ETH)
Trust Wallet & Binance Dex ( AWC-BNB only)
You can import your BNB private key into Trust Wallet and trade your AWC for BNB via the in-app Binance DEX. Here's how to do that:
