Before we start

Today, Molly has limited functionality but more features will be coming out soon as we deploy the Hypergraph Network! Use Molly to create your native $DAG wallet, set up your keys for security, and generate your own native $DAG address.

Your new native $DAG address can be used to map your ERC-20 $DAG for the token swap.

WARNING: DO NOT SEND ERC20 $DAG to the Molly wallet!

*Please note, we will provide email communication for the featured ERC-20 to native $DAG token swap. If you would like faster updates and have additional questions, The Best Community in Crypto will help support you through our telegram community:

Please be sure to follow us on Twitter as well:

*You will be able to swap your tokens on the Kucoin exchange simply by leaving your ERC-20 $DAG in your exchange wallet. Please create your Molly native wallet regardless and to transfer tokens off the exchange after the token swap. OR if you don’t want to swap with Kucoin use Molly to generate a Mainnet wallet address for the swapping contract.

For more information on how to prepare for a manual mainnet token swap, read and watch this tutorial:

Token Swap Information

  1. The Swap will be conducted in March 2020. The exact date (blockheight) will be announced.
  2. Kucoin supports on-exchange swap. That means you can leave your ERC20 DAG on Kucoin and it will be swapped automatically. After the swap you can withdraw the Mainnet DAG to the Molly wallet.
  3. Addionally, we also support a manual swap with the ERC20 smart contract. This is for users who don’t trust an exchange or want to keep custody over their tokens.
