Dear Blue Whale Fan-mily,
Based on the feedback we have received from our community, partners and leading digital asset exchanges, Blue Whale Global will be swapping our current ERC-20 BWX tokens to new ERC-20 tokens on a different smart contract. This will heighten the security during token use and allow Blue Whale Global to leverage the Ethereum ecosystem on a broader scale.
Blue Whale Global will be commencing the swap of 1,000 [one thousand] ERC-20 BWX tokens to 1 [one] new ERC-20 BWX token with a swap ratio of 1000:1.
Please note that with this new swap ratio, the 16th decimal point will be rounded up to the new 18th decimal point but token holders must have more than 1 BWX token in the previous contract. Please also note that there will be a decrease in the total number of tokens issued due to this new swap ratio.
The token swap will adhere to the following timelines:

The exchanges will be conducting an automatic swap for their customers. Please follow the official notice and instructions from your exchange.
- If you store your BWX tokens in a personal ERC-based wallet (such as My Ether Wallet):

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long will this token swap take? When is the deadline?
