In full accordance with the swap schedule, March 27 marks the end of the swap procedure of the old HTML5Coin token into new HTMLCoin token. This final stage of the swap that lasted roughly 14 days is considered to be late stage and thus the rate is 3 (old) : 1 (new).

A special web form was prepared so that the users could fill it out and perform the swat themselves (therefore it was called 'Self-swap service'). The users can use this form for both the HTML5Coin wallet addresses and YoBIT exchange withdrawal code called 'Yobit code'. The HTMLCoin team warns that sometimes the YoBIT exchange withdrawal function may not work and recommends repeating the procedure later or contact HTMLCoin support for help with the withdrawal.

The actual swap are going to be handled on Saturday, March 31. The official end date of the swap procedure is set on March 28. This swap is due to the migration of HTMLCoin to a new blockchain with new features for freelancers and segregated minorities (e-learning programs, job hunting and connections, freelance mobile app). These rich features all aim to empower freelancers and vulnerable communities to new bold opportunities, learn new skills and apply them immediately. Freelancers-Business platform is set to connect companies and freelancers to help adopt these innovative concept.

As of the moment of publication, the HTMLCoin market indicators are as follows:

Average price: $0.000541

Market cap: $35,579,234
