DARC SWAP feature and Konstellation Bridge are live!!!
And here is how to use them…
Note: DARC-BEP2 can also be written as DARC 087. When we mention DARC-BEP2, it means we are talking about DARC in its BEP2 version on the Binance Chain. DARC-BEP20 refers to the version of DARC on Binance Smart Chain.
Native DARC will be the name given to DARC on the Konstellation network.
We are excited to announce the release of DARC SWAP and the launch of Konstellation Bridge, which will enable DARC holders to move DARC across multiple chains with ease! The DARC SWAP feature will allow users to transfer DARC between Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain. The Konstellation Bridge connects DARC across Binance Smart Chain and Konstellation network.
This document will guide you on how to realize the swaps between:
- DARC-BEP2 (DARC received during the recent Airdrop) => DARC BEP20
- DARC-BEP20 => Native DARC
- DARC-BEP20 => DARC-BEP2
Please note that for now, SWAP between Native DARC => DARC-BEP20 has not been completed yet. It should be released within a few days ,so be aware that DARC sent to Konstellation network (Native DARC version) will be locked on the Konstellation network until the release of the Native DARC => DARC-BEP20 swap functionality.
How to SWAP DARC from Binance Chain (DARC-BEP2) to Binance Smart Chain (DARC-BEP20):
Moving DARC from Binance Chain to Binance Smart Chain is the first step in DARC’s listing on a Binance Smart Chain DEX, like PancakeSwap.
(Reminder: DARC-BEP2 is also known as DARC 087. When we mention DARC BEP2 it means that we are talking about DARC in its BEP2 version on the Binance Chain. DARC 087 is the name given for DARC on the Binance Chain. DARC BEP20 refers to the DARC version on Binance Smart Chain.)
