In the summer of 2020 we announced that we would be upgrading our native ADX token (referred to as legacy token) to pave the way for ADX to integrate with the exploding DeFi ecosystem. The upgrade to the new ADX token, which will continue to be used for staking, also introduces a few new features, reduces gas costs, and fixes a few minor technical irregularities. The deadline for migrating from the legacy to the new ADX token is the 16th of March 2022.
You can read the full announcement on this page.
How to find out whether I hold the new or the legacy ADX?
- On Etherscan, the legacy token will show up with the name “AdEx”, symbol ADX and token address 0x4470BB87d77b963A013DB939BE332f927f2b992e
- On Etherscan, the new token will show up with the name “AdEx Network”, symbol ADX and token address 0xADE00C28244d5CE17D72E40330B1c318cD12B7c3
VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure to never send tokens directly to the token address as this will block them and make them technically unaccessible (and you will not be able to recover them).
