From now, all existing users who currently have the old version(ver 1.14 and below) installed on their devices will be requested to complete this compulsory update before entering their f(x)Wallet.
After updating your f(x)Wallet app to the latest version, follow our step-by-step guide below to complete the address upgrade.
How to upgrade fx address to EVM-Compatible 0x address
Tap the pinned message on the top of My Wallet page, and select one fx address to upgrade. Each time only one fx address can be chosen and upgraded.
The upgrade will also transfer your FX Coins, including balances and, if any, delegations, in the selected address to the new 0x address. You'll need to keep a small amount of FX for the transaction fees. Make sure you have FX Coins in the wallet address you intend to upgrade.
Tap "Upgrade" to proceed, then tap "Pay" to submit the transfer. Normally, it'll take only seconds for the blockchain to confirm the transfer. Once it gets confirmed, the address upgrade is completed successfully. Tap "Done" to go back to My Wallet page.
Congratulations! You've successfully completed the Address Upgrade of one fx address. Now you can start using your new EVM-compatible 0x address.
How to upgrade more FX addresses
It's not compulsory to upgrade each fx address if you have multiple addresses in use.
For example, as a small amount of FX tokens are needed for the transaction fee, there's no need to upgrade fx address with zero balance. You can choose your own upgrade practice according to your needs.
The pinned message will be there as long as there's any fx address qualified for the Address Upgrade.You can also easily find your fx addresses that can be upgraded in Settings > Address Upgrade.
Tap the pinned message or go to Settings > Address Upgrade, you can view all available addresses and make a selection based on your own needs.
Follow the instructions to upgrade.
