PDEX Migration: Two ways about it

Migrating just got a whole lot easier thanks to native PDEX’s listing on Gate.io

ERC-20 PDEX vs Native PDEX

While PDEX was launched originally as an ERC-20 token on Ethereum, it was always supposed to become the native token of the Polkadex network. As the native token on Polkadex, PDEX will continue to gain utility the more Polkadex products are released. Staking is the first of many use-cases for PDEX as the Polkadex network is a nominated Proof of Stake network modeled after the Polkadot network.

The easy way to migrate

How easy is it? Gate.io supports ERC-20 PDEX and native PDEX deposits but it only supports native PDEX withdrawals. In other words, any PDEX on Gate.io essentially becomes native PDEX. This means there are at least two ways of migrating using Gate.io. All you need is a Gate.io account for either.

Select ‘ETH/ERC20’ as the Chain when depositing
Withdraw to PDEX using your Polkadex wallet address

What about Kucoin?

ERC-20 PDEX is the only version of PDEX currently supported by Kucoin. Kucoin, along with other exchanges, will add support for native PDEX soon. Wider support for native PDEX will enable more necessary migration routes as different Polkadex components launch onto the Mainnet and demand for native PDEX rises.

The more technical way

While it requires a few more tools and might incur high Ethereum gas fees, it’s also possible to swap your ERC-20 PDEX to native PDEX 1:1 using the Polkadex migration app.
