As long as you hold some ANTv1, you will be able to upgrade it 1:1 to an equivalent ANTv2 balance. Depending on where your ANTv1 is held, you may have different options for upgrading to ANTv2.
ANTv1 held directly in a non-contract wallet that can connect to dapps (e.g. web wallets, some mobile wallets, most hardware wallets through browser extensions) should find the Upgrade Portal most convenient.
Your wallet may not immediately detect your upgraded ANTv2 balance. In this case, you need to add the token address (
0xa117000000f279D81A1D3cc75430fAA017FA5A2e)to your wallet. If you are using a Metamask wallet, you can follow this guide to add custom tokens.
If you are using another wallet, you should be able to find the documentation on how to add custom tokens to your wallet's interface.
Depending on the type of contract wallet being used, you may or may not be able to use the Upgrade Portal directly.
Assuming your contract wallet can send outward transactions (i.e. interact with other Ethereum smart contracts like Uniswap through arbitrary calls), you will be able to upgrade your ANTv1 without transferring it out of this wallet.
The available upgrade paths for ANTv1 held in Aragon DAOs depend on whether the DAO has the Agent app installed or not.
If the DAO does not have the Agent app installed, your options for upgrading the ANTv1 become limited to:
- Either transferring the ANTv1 out to a wallet that can directly interact with the Upgrade Portal or contracts
No automatic migration of on-chain liquidity is currently provided. If you have provided ANT as on-chain liquidity, please withdraw your ANT and migrate through the other options listed here.
Most exchanges and related service providers have been notified of the upgrade and are committed to completing the migration as quickly as possible for their customers. Please check with your service on their upgrade schedule separately.
ANT still represents the same underlying asset: a governance token over the Aragon Network.
ANTv2, as the latest version of the token and the one used for Aragon Network governance, currently carries the official "ANT" moniker. User interfaces across services and dapps are being updated to reflect this.
You may identify if an interface lists ANTv2 as "ANT" if it uses the new token icon ("white eagle" rather than ANTv1's "blue eagle"), or by double checking its token address to be
0xa117000000f279D81A1D3cc75430fAA017FA5A2e("a117 saze", after the first four and last four characters).
ANTv1 should now appear as "ANTv1" or "ANT (old)". Its name was updated to "Aragon Network Token v1", but associated with the same logo as before ("blue eagle").
