Update on imBTC Operations: Tokenlon to cease cross-chain gateway services

Gradually into the late autumn, take a cup of hot tea and take a look at the updated content of 2.4.11.

imToken 2.4.11 Update:

  • You can now copy or share the wallet address more easily on the receive page
  • You can now transfer BTC/ETH to friends, a domain name is enough! With our support of .eth /.zil multichain domains
  • imKey supports BTC OP_RETURN
  • More optimization and repair

Receive page optimization, copy/share address in one go

In imToken 2.4.10, we have completed the optimization of the new user experience, making the wallet creation, import/backup process even smoother. In this version you can copy or share addresses more easily on the receive page.

How to enter the receive page:

  • Select any wallet, tap the wallet address at the top of the wallet to display
  • Slide to the right on the token to receive, such as DAI

(Note: ETH wallet address can be used to receive all ERC 20 tokens)

Multi-chain transfer, one domain name is enough

Maybe you remember ENS as the "easy to remember Ethereum address", which makes it easy to remember the long list of random numbers and letters that is an Ethereum address. Surprisingly, after more than two years of development, ENS now supports multiple cryptocurrencies.

This means that when you transfer money to a friend, you don't need to fill in the address of the wallet, for any chain: Bitcoin, EOS, Ethereum, you name it. If you transfer tokens in imToken 2.4.11, enter a .eth /.zil multi-chain domain name for improved efficiency.

Not sure what is parsing? Simply put,

Alice has an ENS short domain name (balabala.eth). When Bob transfers, the short domain name is filled in the payment address. imToken will automatically parse the domain name according to the parameters, and find the corresponding ETH wallet address: 0xda1d0c7f174effba98ea1e31424418dc9aeaea22. Of course, if you fill in a domain name that does not exist, you will get an error saying "The wallet address of the ENS domain name could not be found".


📌 How to buy ENS domains?

Select the "Browse" page - Find the "ENS" DApp under "Tools" and search for a name. Find the tutorial for a complete guide on how to purchase.

imKey supports BTC OP_RETURN

Following imToken in supporting BTC OP_RETURN, imKey also completed support. In simple terms, OP_RETURN is a function of "storing information" on the Bitcoin network, i.e. by writing hexadecimal characters to the Bitcoin network. With "OP_RETURN" the irreversible advantages of the BTC network can be used to permanently record important information on the blockchain, or to perform special operations (such as ChainX mining, imBTC subscriptions, etc.).

The imBTC issuance phase is over, but you can still get the interest by purchasing imBTC on Tokenlon:
