Progress Update | 2018/12/08

We have released our 2.1.5 version for both Android and iOS!

For our existing 1.0 users, we have released 1.5.0 version for both Android and iOS as well, and there is a surprise for you, find out more below!

Technical Updates

Special Mention: One-click to Migrate Your Wallets in imToken 1.0 to imToken 2.0

With imToken 1.5.0 and 2.1.5, you can now migrate your wallets from imToken 1.0 to imToken 2.0 with just one-click.

We released the imToken 2.0 at the end of July 2018, during our first ever launch event held in Singapore. Since then, we worked day and night to improve and enhance the functionalities of the 2.0 version so that you will be able to enjoy a true one-stop cryptocurrency wallet experience.

Find out more about the awesome features in imToken 2.0!

However, we have received feedback from users that the processes to migrate from imToken 1.0 to imToken 2.0 are arduous and tedious, there were simply too many steps involved.

With that, we worked on a solution that will help you seamlessly migrate your wallets from your current 1.0 version directly into imToken 2.0. We have also prepared a simple video tutorial to help you with the process.

If you have any suggestions for us to further improve it, do let us know on our Twitter, Reddit, or Telegram.

Albeit the primary focus for the past two week was placed on the migration process, but fret not, we have not neglect the development and maintenance of other functions in our 2.0 version.

TL;DR Announcements

Earn Interest for Your Idle Tokens with Compound Finance in imToken 2.0

Compound made the first appearance in imToken 2.0 on December 3rd, it is one of the best and most useful DeFi products we have seen in the market.

The Compound DApp allows you to easily earn interest on your tokens; just supply your assets to Compound, and begin immediately earning the specified interest rate.

Currently Compound supports ETH, ZRX, REP, BAT, and DAI. Interest rates for these tokens fluctuate, and have ranged from 0.02% — 20.0% annualized in the past several weeks. As Compound continues to build features, add assets, and acquire partners, these interest rates will become more and more attractive.

And not only can you earn interest on your tokens, but you can also use Compound to borrow tokens, to use them or trade them anywhere — try it out with imToken’s own built-in DEX!

Stay tuned on our social media channels, Twitter, Reddit, or Telegram to get updates on campaigns and events coming up!
