Aion Token Swap Launch Update: a brief update on progress.

Token Transfer Bridge

Our Bridge Transfer User Interface is the portal that token holders will use to interact with the Token Transfer Bridge to swap their ERC-20 tokens for Aion Coins. This UI will be live and hosted on an Aion Foundation web portal with SSL encryption — we can not stress enough how important it is to check for valid certificates as this web portal is the only secure UI to interact with the Token Transfer Bridge (stay tuned for more detail on this).

Exchanges & Integrations

We understand how important it is to have a wide range of exchanges and wallets on board, integrated and tested before we go-live and we are happy to report we will be conducting the token swap with more than 10 partners. This number will increase as we get more coverage; we will update you as new ones are added.

Coinomi Supports Aion Coin

Big fan of Coinomi? So are we! The Coinomi mobile wallet now has support for the Aion Coin. In addition to our Desktop Wallets (Windows and Mac versions to be released this week), you can use Coinomi to generate an Aion address and get ready for the token swap. You won’t need to go through this alone, a step-by-step webinar and comprehensive documentation will be available, and as usual we will be active on our channels during go-live.


Finally, here are some FAQ’s which will be updated as we go through the swap. We are all eagerly anticipating going live early next week and will keep you up-to-date as we move through the Token Swap process.

Reddit — Token Swap FAQ: an exhaustive list of details about the Token Swap.

Aion Fungible Token Standard (AIP #004): the submission of the Aion Token Standard (ATS) to the Aion Improvement Proposal process, authored by Sam Pajot-Phipps, Yao Sun and Stephane Gosselin. The ATS is an innovative token standard that provides comprehensive functionality for fungible token developers, and — for the first-time in the industry — introduces native cross-chain methods into a token standard. This will enable all standard compliant tokens to have out-of-the-box cross-chain functionality.

Aion Desktop Wallets: After extensive development, testing and auditing by both core development team and trusted third parties, the Aion desktop wallets (MacOS, Windows & Linux) are now available for download. These wallets will be used to store the AION coin.
