The rollout of the new Voyager Token, VGX 2.0 is upon us, soon to be followed by the much-anticipated launch of our Voyager Loyalty Program (VLP).

In this blog, we summarize what you need to know to have a successful token swap of VGX 1.0 and LGO tokens to VGX 2.0. We also highlight some important tips to ensure you can easily utilize our web swap portal. Keep in mind, we refer to the post-swap Voyager Token as VGX 2.0, and the pre-swap token as VGX 1.0. In the future, the ticker will remain as VGX.

Let’s dive in.

Note: Current Voyager customers should follow the instructions found below. Those without a Voyager account should follow the instructions under Token swap and staking web portal. You can open a Voyager account here.

Voyager customers

If you are a Voyager customer, please follow the Official Token Swap for Voyager customers instructions below. As a Voyager customer, you can simply continue to hold VGX in your Voyager account, and Voyager will automatically swap your tokens for you on the official date.

You do not need to use the swap and stake portal, as you are already receiving the 7% yield rewards on a monthly basis if you hold the minimum monthly average balance. We’ll take care of the swap for you!

Official Token Swap for Voyager customers

What is the official token swap? The official token swap is when Voyager will officially swap all VGX 1.0 on the Voyager app to VGX 2.0. The official token swap will take place on August 16th. Exact timing of the swap will be announced as we get closer to the swap date.

Official Token Swap instructions for Voyager customers:

  1. Simply hold VGX tokens in your Voyager app.
  2. Voyager will temporarily pause trading and transfers of VGX during the official swap, which will take several hours, approximately.
  3. Once the swap is complete, Voyager will notify you by email and open trading and transfers of VGX 2.0 on the app. After the official swap, you will be holding VGX 2.0 in your portfolio. The ticker will remain VGX.

Create your Voyager account here.

Exchange support

Voyager will be coordinating with exchange partners, including Binance, to support the official token swap. Exchanges and Voyager will pause trading and transfers simultaneously during the official token swap to ensure a smooth transition to VGX 2.0.

New smart contract

The new smart contract has been successfully tested and deployed for VGX 2.0. When referencing the VGX 2.0 smart contract address, you can ensure authenticity by referencing the address below.

Here is the new smart contract address: 0x3C4B6E6e1eA3D4863700D7F76b36B7f3D3f13E3d

Note: Please do not send tokens directly to the smart contract address or they will be lost and unrecoverable.

Token swap and staking web portal

The Voyager token swap and staking web portal is now live, for token holders who are not Voyager customers. Easily swap your VGX 1.0 and LGO tokens to VGX 2.0, then stake them via the portal to receive the 7% staking reward.

Who should use the web swap and staking portal?

  • International token holders who do not have a Voyager account
  • LGO token holders
  • Ethos Universal Wallet users holding VGX 1.0 tokens

Checklist for how to use the web swap portal:

  1. Install MetaMask on your Google Chrome browser.
    a. Google Chrome is the recommended browser for accessing the portal.
    b. Mobile swapping is not supported, please use a desktop or laptop browser.
  2. Transfer your VGX and/or LGO tokens to your MetaMask wallet.
  3. Access the portal to swap and stake here: https://vgx-swap.investvoyager.com/
  4. Follow the instructions on-screen to connect your MetaMask wallet to the web swap portal.
  5. Enter the amount of VGX or LGO you’d like to swap.
    a. Confirm that you are allowing the swap portal to swap your tokens.
    b. Confirm the swap transaction to finalize.
  6. Add the new smart contract to your MetaMask wallet to display your new VGX tokens: 0x3C4B6E6e1eA3D4863700D7F76b36B7f3D3f13E3d

How to add VGX 2.0 to your MetaMask Wallet:

  • Click on the Add Token page in your MetaMask wallet.
  • Click on the Custom Token tab to expand the search window. Add the new smart contract to your MetaMask wallet to display your new VGX tokens.

A couple of tips for the swap:

  • Make sure you’re holding some ETH in your MetaMask wallet, confirming transactions will require Ethereum to pay for gas fees.
  • To ensure your transaction gets approved by the blockchain, and for faster approval and short transaction times, we recommend utilizing a slightly larger amount than the standard gas fee. MetaMask gives you the option for a “fast” transaction type.
  • Ensure your browser allows and supports pop-up windows for both MetaMask and the swap page so that you can receive notifications to confirm your transactions.
  • If the transactions fail at any point, simply re-start the process. Make sure you confirm the transactions quickly and use ample gas fees.
  • If your transaction fails and the portal refreshes without giving you the ability to swap, clear out your cache and cookies in your browser before restarting the process.

Note: Please do not deposit VGX 2.0 tokens into your Voyager account before the Official Token Swap is complete for all Voyager customers.
