Why are there three AWC tokens in the app?
In 2019, we migrated AWC from Ethereum to the Binance blockchain. Subsequently, 50% of the token's supply got issued under the BEP-2 protocol. The one based on the Ethereum blockchain ( ERC-20 AWC) features a blue icon, whereas the Binance-based token ( BEP-2 AWC) has a yellow one.
In 2022 we migrated the BEP-2 AWC token to BEP-20 AWC. More about it here.
What's the difference between the tokens?
- BEP-2 AWC can be staked.
- ERC-20 AWC can be swapped in the wallet.
- BEP-20 AWC, once the migration is completed, will be available for both swapping and staking in Atomic Wallet.
Where can I trade my AWC?
ERC-20 AWC can be traded in the Swap tab in our app. Since this AWC is a token based on the Ethereum blockchain, you'll need to have some ETH on your balance to pay the network fees for the swap.
BEP-20 AWC can also be traded in the Swap tab.

When will I receive my AWC cashback?
Cashback isn't awarded on a per-swap basis, so don't worry if you haven't received yours right after making a trade. We distribute AWC membership awards in batches, accounting for all swaps made the previous month. For example, you'll receive your cashback for all the swaps you made throughout December by the end of January, etc.
Why have I received much less AWC in cashback than I was expecting?
There's an upper limit on how much AWC you can receive via our membership program, which you can check in the Settings tab on the left sidebar. The limit currently caps at 400 USD worth of AWC in cashback per month for our Platinum users.
When are AWC staking rewards paid out?
AWC staking rewards are paid out weekly. You won't need to claim them, as they'll automatically get deposited to your BNB address. See How do I stake AWC? to learn more about earning passive income off your deposit.
