Happy Friday! We finally swapping from Mercury to Jupiter! This will enable the team to continue our development of Metis, Gravity, and our other versions of blockchain apps. Here are the gritty details…
Where we’ve been
We started this journey waaaaaaay back in 2014 on Nxt. Darcrus was listed on Bittrex in December 2016 and Mercury was created and airdropped in April 2017. Darcrus was delisted and Mercury listed on Bittrex later in 2017. Darcrus was swapped into Jupiter in 2019. We have done great work to learn the ecosystem, community, and continued to build complexity on the back end for simplification on the front end. As we have moved forward, we learned many things, had an awesome treasure hunt, delivered Gravity and Metis applications, and continued to be stewards of this personal banking revolution.
Where we are
We are unifying Mercury and Jupiter’s development efforts and giving a clear path for our future self. We have a long and pleasant history with Bittrex. We are grateful for their support of our project and the cryptocurrency community as a whole. We look forward to continuing our relationship on Bittrex US and Bittrex International. We applied for on-exchange swap support in December 2019 and began Slack communications. As we come to July 2020, we must move forward with the swap procedure. The Bittrex team is evaluating the ‘technical lift’ required to swap Mercury to Jupiter on their exchange. We have done what has been asked and await their scheduling of the support for Jupiter. The swap service provided built by the Jupiter team is now available.
Please do these steps to swap your Mercury to Jupiter:
- Install a Waves wallet or their Chrome Waves Signer extension
- Withdraw Mercury from Bittrex to this new Waves wallet
- Install Jupiter’s core wallet or use https://jpr.gojupiter.tech as a lite wallet
- Navigate to https://swap.gojupiter.tech
- Follow the on-screen instructions to get your Mercury swapped into Jupiter. DO NOT use an exchange address for Jupiter!
It is that easy! The entire process takes 10-15 minutes from wallet creation -> swap -> Jupiter coins in your own wallet.
We are dedicated to the further improvement of Jupiter’s base protocol and the services built on top of our blockchain. We look forward to the renewed, unified journey of Jupiter!
