How to Swap Your Tokens

We are ready to distribute your tokens to all of you. In order for you to get your tokens everyone must first go through a token swap. This is a quick and easy procedure. Please take a few minutes to read the instructions carefully.


Also, we have a small change in the amount of tokens burned. First of all, some people have paid straight on our wallet so we will send 1,480,765.225 tokens to them. Second, some people have been paying from an exchange and 102,552.1135 tokens will be sent to them. Some people forgot to enter the ETH address and 77,730 tokens will be used for them. So in total, we will have 840,108,901 tokens in total supply and 159,891,099 tokens will be burned.

Questions and Answers:

Q) What is a token swap?
A) As you all know we will be using our own blockchain (not Etherium) and our own VINchain wallet that you can use to store your VIN tokens! In order for our tokens to be stored in your wallet, they first have to be converted from the Ethereum based tokens that they are now, into VINchain blockchain compatible tokens. This is known as a token swap.
Q) Why is a token swap necessary?
A) You have to go through a token swap so that your tokens become tradable, transferable, and usable.
Q) Who has to do the token swap?
A) Everyone has to go through a token swap

Swap results!

Dear VINchain community,

We have an announcement for you! As you all know, our system will be working on our own blockchain, which is why we have been asking you to complete the swap! The swap is on pause for now because we are calculating the percentage of people who have done it. Everyone who has completed it will have their tokens unlocked in their VIN wallet (you will get the link soon).

SWAP update!

Dear VINchain community,

We have a wonderful announcement for you. As many you are aware, the swap is stopped for now. We have been waiting a few weeks for people to go through the change, but we can no longer delay. Right now, we are in the process of switching to our own blockchain. On monday we will unlock the VIN tokens of people who have gone through with the swap, and they will receive them in their new VIN wallet. After this period, all who haven’t yet had the opportunity to make the switch will have the chance to do so. When this becomes available once more, we will send new instructions on how to make the switch!

We have decided that the swap will be for FREE for everyone. There are only 1500 people left who need to make the swap, and VINchain will cover the transaction fee expenses. Please follow our announcements next week for new instructions and make the swap as soon as you are able.
