If you’re curious about the way ChangeNOW exchanges your assets, here’s a simple little guide through the basics of the exchange progress.
To start out, when you open ChangeNOW, you need to choose which two currencies you want to swap, as well as the rate - classic (aka floating) or fixed, and click Exchange to begin the process.
You will need to enter a valid wallet address. This is the destination address - also known as the payout address. This is the wallet where your coins will arrive after they’ve been exchanged. After you’ve entered the address, you can proceed to the confirmation screen. At this point, every user must agree to our Terms of Service before they can go any further.
Finally, you’ll reach the most important part of the exchange - making the deposit. At this stage, you’re shown another wallet address - the deposit address. It’s generated by ChangeNOW specifically to receive your deposit for this exchange order. Send your coins to this address, and the exchange will begin. Please bear in mind that if you initiate a fixed-rate exchange, you will only have a 20 minute window to send your coins! In this case, a timer appears telling you how much time you have left.
On this same page, you can monitor the status of your order. It will appear as Awaiting payment while we’re waiting for your deposit to arrive to our wallet, then as Waiting for exchange while the exchange is in progress, and finally as Sent to your wallet when the order is completed.
Don’t miss the opportunity to receive complimentary tokens! For every exchange you perform on our platform, you are allotted a certain sum of NOW tokens. Enter your ETH wallet address in the field provided, and your tokens will be credited to you at the start of the next week.
