As detailed in the first announcement, the AVA token will soon migrate to a new Ethereum (ERC-20) contract. The new ERC-20 AVA token will be issued on a 1:1 basis for all existing versions of the AVA token, including BEP-2, BEP-20, and the existing ERC-20 version.

The token swap will commence on Monday 28 August 2023 at 03:00 AM UTC, with swap options supported for a 15-month period across centralised exchanges, the platform, and third-party on-chain platforms.

Following the 15-month period, swap options on centralised exchanges,, and third-party on-chain platforms will no longer be supported. Token holders that do not swap their tokens in this time period will need to contact the AVA Foundation directly to swap their AVA tokens to the new ERC-20 version.

Note: for the purpose of differentiating the AVA token before and after the upgrade, the pre-upgrade AVA token will be referred to as “AVA 1.0” and the post-upgrade AVA token as “AVA 2.0” in this article. However, the token name and ticker will be “AVA” following the token swap.


Legacy & New AVA Contract Addresses

AVA 1.0 tokens on any of the three legacy contract addresses on the BEP-2, BEP-20 and ERC-20 protocols will need to be swapped to the new ERC-20 version of the AVA 2.0 token.

This section details the legacy contract addresses and the new contract address that will take effect once the swap takes place:

Platforms Supporting the Swap

The following platforms have publicly announced their support for the AVA token swap. This list will be updated as platforms announce their support.

IMPORTANT: If, at the token swap date, your AVA 1.0 tokens are stored on a custodial wallet, non-custodial wallet or centralised exchange that is NOT on the following list, it is at your own risk and the recoverability of your funds cannot be guaranteed. Support for AVA 1.0 tokens on third-party platforms following the upgrade and your ability to withdraw your AVA 1.0 tokens is at the discretion of each platform.

Centralised Exchanges

AVA 1.0 tokens stored on centralised exchanges supporting the swap at the time of the token swap will be automatically swapped to AVA 2.0 and no action will be required by token holders.

Centralised exchanges that have announced their support for the AVA token swap include:

AVA 1.0 tokens stored in the platform wallet or in the Smart Program on at the time of the token swap will be able to be swapped to AVA 2.0. AVA 1.0 tokens on the legacy BEP-2, BEP-20 or ERC-20 protocols can be sent to the platform wallet at any time within the 15-month period in order to swap these tokens to the new AVA 2.0 ERC-20 token.

DEXs, Cold Wallets & Self-custody Wallets

AVA 1.0 tokens stored in decentralised exchanges or platforms, cold wallets and self-custody wallets at the time of the token swap will require manual swapping to AVA 2.0 by token holders following the token swap date. 

Token holders can manually swap their AVA 1.0 tokens on the legacy BEP-2, BEP-20 or ERC-20 protocols for the AVA 2.0 ERC-20 token at the following third-party on-chain platforms:
