6. Now send your Kin ERC20 tokens to us and wait for around 5–10 minutes. Your transaction status is shown in your transaction history along with other transactions made on Changelly.
7. Wait for the swap. The swapping process itself takes around 5 seconds (the rest of the time is taken by the network) and consists of three stages:
- Getting confirmation
- Exchanging ERC20 Kin to Kin coin
- Sending to your wallet
As the transaction is completed all the details will be viewed in the window like the one below. You can find your transaction on Blockchain by tapping “See transaction on Blockchain” button.
How does the swap process work?
When doing the swap you don’t do the exchange itself, hence no commission is charged for the procedure, other than the Ethereum gas cost for the transaction. In fact, you send us your Kin ERC20 token, we burn it and fill up your wallet with the same amount of native Kin coin. Changelly accepts tokens from any wallet that supports ERC20 such as Jaxx, Exodus or Myetherwallet, etc.
Pay attention that the swap window will be available between March 15th and June 15th, 2019.
