Token Migration in Progress

As reported by Herald Sheets, IOTA advanced into the phase of token migration on 21st April in preparation for the official launch of Chrysalis.

According to the report, the token migration phase will last for one week, but tokens can still be migrated after the launch. However, it’s recommended for exchanges to migrate ahead of the launch to avoid service interruption.

The much-awaited launch of Chrysalis is expected to move IOTA out of the experimental phase to an enterprise-ready ecosystem that is open to real-world use cases.

The report has it that the upgrade has a huge impact on all the aspects of IOTA, including wallets, libraries, software implementations, security protocols, and will serve as a foundation to the rollout of Coordicide:

“Chrysalis marks a true rebirth for the IOTA protocol, as it is the launch of an entirely new network. This relaunch will bring IOTA up to the level of an enterprise-ready product that is fully equipped for use in outside organizations and businesses that wish to leverage the power of the Tangle.
