aelf Extends its Mainnet Token Swap to December 9, 2022
The swap portal runs for another 3 months and the tutorial is renewed.
It has been one year since aelf commenced the Mainnet Token Swap. Mainnet ELF token is the passport for community users to participate in aelf’s governance. It can be used to pay transaction fees and purchase resource tokens that developers need. Mainnet ELF holders can stake and vote for nodes via aelf explorer and enjoy their rights as aelf ecosystem contributors.
The official swap portal on aelf’s site enables ELF holders to exchange their tokens from networks like Ethereum and BSC to aelf Mainnet. The swap is set at the rate of 1:1, keeping the total supply unchanged.
Besides this portal, 6 of the top-tier exchanges have supported Mainnet ELF: Binance, OKX, Huobi Global, Gate.io, Upbit, and Bithumb. This means that users can withdraw Mainnet ELF from any of these exchanges. Meanwhile, with Binance, withdrawal and deposit are supported in all four networks (AELF, ERC20, BEP2, and BEP20).
Responding to the community’s needs, aelf team decides to extend the swap portal for another 3 months till December 9, 2022. Below is how you can complete a manual swap via this portal.
- To send ELF from other networks, make sure you have any of these wallets: MetaMask, WalletConnect, or Coinbase Wallet;
- To receive Mainnet ELF, please install NightELF extension wallet. Follow this tutorial if you have not registered an aelf wallet account.
Please operate the swap using Google Chrome.
Find ELF in the Sending Wallet

If it has not been added, you should first select the source network (the network from which the token will be sent): Ethereum or BSC.
Click [import tokens] and enter “ELF” in the search box, select AELF (ELF) and then click [Next]. On the next page click [Import Tokens], and ELF token is now in your wallet.
Choose Source Network
Visit the portal and choose the source network in the upper right-hand corner.
If the current network you are on is your source network, please go directly to the next step.
If you need to switch from the current network to the other, the sending wallet will be automatically launched and ask for your permission to switch networks. Enter your password to [UNLOCK] and your sending wallet will be connected (then you don’t need to connect your wallet again as instructed in step 4).

Click [Connect] and choose the sending wallet. Enter your password to unlock it.
