Secure migration to Waves.Exchange

Waves | 11.19| 260

The first phase of secure migration to the new exchange service has now begun. All current users of the Waves wallet and DEX can import their seed phrases to the new Waves.Exchange domain with just one click!

Your seed phrases are not stored on a central server — they are held locally on your device, just as before, so your security is not compromised.

To start migration, you need to open your wallet, and when you log into your account on the original application, you will see a pop-up window with information about the migration process. Simply follow the instructions.

ATTENTION!!! The migration process for web wallets is ONLY available from the web domains and To complete migration for the desktop client you must use the Waves DEX desktop application you have already installed.

Do not use any other domains for migration, do not input your seed phrases and/or private keys anywhere, and do not download any other clients aside from the software indicated for the migration process from your current Waves DEX client. The migration process does not require you to input your seed phrases and/or private keys anywhere. Waves Platform or Waves.Exchange employees will never ask you to provide any kind of personal information, including private keys and/or seed phrases.

The migration process is absolutely free, and it will not affect any gateways, which will process all transactions as normal. You do not need to pay or send any tokens to anyone to complete migration.

We have prepared a webpage with answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. If there’s anything you’re uncertain about, it’s likely you’ll be able to find out more here:

After the migration process completes successfully, you’ll get a notification. This means that on December 2, when use of all the old applications will be discontinued, you’ll be ready to use the new Waves.Exchange app straight away.

Don’t forget to update your mobile app on Google Play (Android) or the AppStore (iOS). This will also ensure uninterrupted access to the exchange on launch day.
