imToken 8th Anniversary: Building a Token-Centric World

imToken is turning 8! šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰ From 2016 to 2024, imToken has been witnessing the ups and downs of the crypto industry alongside all of you. We express our gratitude to every user for their support and companionship, enabling us to keep moving forward. Building a Token-Centric World In 2018, imToken embraced the ethos of open source, infusing fresh energy into the crypto industry with its TokenCore code. However, as the ecosystem continues to evolve, simply patching up old code is no longer the optimal choice. We're committed to embracing innovative solutions that propel us forward in this ever-changing landscape. As the crypto industry rapidly evolves, wallet products need to meet a wider range of needs. We believe the ultimate state of an ideal wallet should be: A shield for users and their families: protecting tokens from compromise, data leaks, and identity tracking. Helping users access the tokenized world with low cost and low threshold: permissionless accounts, affordable hardware, and user-friendly interfaces. Looking ahead, we are steadfast in our belief that "a Token-Centric World" is the best way to achieve this vision. Tokens are changing the way we innovate, share, and interact, whether it's in transfers, payments, NFTs, staking, governance, or in the realms of DeFi and DID. We keenly perceive the profound impact of this paradigm shift. A New Beginning: imToken 2.15 Driven by the concept of "a Token-Centric World," we've dedicated ourselves to crafting imToken 2.15, introducing a revolutionary architecture and design. The flat account system not only enhances flexibility in accommodating diverse account types but also establishes the groundwork for token-centric product design, heralding a fresh beginning. In line with this transformative journey, we've designed a new brand centered around tokens, unveiling it to commemorate our 8th anniversary, symbolizing a pivotal milestone in our evolution. imToken 8th Anniversary More importantly, we have prepared a wealth of surprises and airdrop events, and we sincerely invite you to join us in celebrating imToken's 8th birthday!

How to Interact with PoolTogether on imToken to Receive NFT Rewards

How to Interact with PoolTogether on imToken to Receive NFT Rewards

About PoolTogether PoolTogether is a prize savings protocol, and currently has prize pools on the Arbitrum, Optimism, and Base networks, supporting deposits in tokens such as USDT, USDC, and WETH. Taking the USDC prize pool as an example, participants deposit USDC into PoolTogether's smart contract, and the deposited funds are automatically transferred to AAVE (a decentralized lending protocol). Participants receive a corresponding number of lottery ticketsā€”the more USDC they deposit, the more tickets they receive, and the greater their chances of winning. The interest for the prize pool comes from the deposit interest at AAVE. Winners receive the accumulated interest from the corresponding pool. Those who do not win do not lose their principal and can redeem it at any time. Hence, it is called a "No-Loss Lottery." PoolTogether is one of the earliest and most widely used DeFi (Decentralized Finance) DApps, having been in operation for over four years. Since its inception, the protocol has distributed over $10 million in prizes. To date, the luckiest winner had deposited $74 and won over $40,000.

imToken's Diversified Account System

imToken's Diversified Account System

imToken's Diversified Account System In the Alipay ecosystem, users' Alipay wallet accounts are intricately linked to diverse financial sub-accounts, including balance accounts, Yu'ebao accounts, Huabei accounts, and bank card accounts. These components collectively form the user's comprehensive Alipay wallet system, typically bound to the user's mobile phone number or email account. Similarly, leveraging decentralized blockchain technology, imToken has established a wallet system that allows users to create multiple token accounts using self-owned mnemonic phrases. These accounts extend across various blockchain networks such as BTC (Bitcoin), ETH (Ethereum), TRX (Tron), Arbitrum, and more. A set of mnemonic phrases corresponds to a single wallet, within which multiple accounts can be created. Unlike Alipay, where each account is directly linked to personal identity information, and thus each user typically has only one Alipay wallet, imToken operates on decentralized principles. It doesn't rely on personal information but rather on mnemonic phrases. Therefore, users can create multiple wallets on various blockchain networks as needed and manage multiple accounts within each wallet. Blockchain Networks and Accounts Various cryptocurrencies operate on distinct blockchain networks such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, TRON, and others. Each network boasts unique value transfer logic and information processing mechanisms. In imToken, blockchain networks are categorized into Layer 1, Layer 2, EVM-compatible chains, and custom chains. To add multiple blockchain network accounts like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and TRON to a single wallet, users simply check the corresponding networks on the account adding page. Note: Previously, imToken integrated Layer 2 and EVM-compatible chains within the ETH account framework, enabling users to access accounts like Optimism and Polygon through switching networks. In the latest version 2.15.1, imToken removes the account hierarchy, presenting Laye r2 and EVM-compatible chains alongside Ethereum for direct access, thereby enhancing operational intuitiveness and efficiency. Account Addition and Derivation Users can add multiple accounts from different networks within a single wallet using a set of mnemonic phrases. Additionally, they can derive multiple independent accounts within the same network, similar to how Alipay users can link multiple ICBC debit cards. By default, imToken generates only one account for each selected network on the account adding page. To create additional accounts within the same network, users can access the advanced feature by clicking on the three dots at the top right corner of the network icon. From there, they can proceed with address derivation. Each account has a corresponding derivation path, acting as a "map" that, when followed using a mnemonic phrase, leads to the corresponding account and address. Account Tagging and Management imToken supports the creation of up to 100 accounts, offering users the flexibility to add or remove accounts and assign custom tags to them. Similar to the tagging feature in WeChat contacts, imToken allows users to customize tags for each account, facilitating efficient management. For instance, consider Bob, who manages a total of 10 accounts in imToken for various blockchain interactions: 2 accounts for daily transfers on the Ethereum network 5 accounts for interacting with DApps on the Arbitrum network 8 accounts for interacting with new projects expecting airdrops By tagging these accounts based on their respective purposes, Bob can quickly filter and locate the desired accounts for specific tasks. Here's how it works: 1. On the wallet page, navigate to " > " and then select "Tag" to customize settings. 2. Return to the wallet page, click on the top-left corner to open the "Select Account" page, and enter the relevant tag name in the search box. The system promptly filters and displays all accounts with that tag. Conclusion In summary, imToken provides a secure, flexible, and practical account management solution. Users can freely create and manage multiple accounts using mnemonic phrases, not only across different networks within a single wallet but also generating multiple independent accounts within the same network. With the custom tag feature, users can effectively organize and streamline their accounts, ensuring efficient management.
