After an unsuccessful attempt to adopt Litecoin 2017 source code (the Phoenix Fork), Bela is opting for ERC20 token. Belacam backbone desperately needed an update for the underlying chain. Bela really wanted to retain its own blockchain and gradually become a rapid payment coin with the true decentralization of PoW.

Legacy Bela blockchain was plagued with orphaned blocks, it was very hard to add to exchanges, was slow with upgrade implementation and lacked application compatibility. The new token will keep some of the original coin characteristics, but also a number of new features (applying PoS, for instance) with an incredible amount of new utility. The ratio was set at 1:1. The swap closes on May 31. The procedure is as follows:

  • provide ERC20 Bela receiving address;
  • send legacy Bela to a unique coin swap address;
  • get an equal amount of ERC20 Bela within 24 hours

The new ERC20 will be supported at the following exchanges:

At the moment of publication, Bela market indicators are as follows:
