Bitfinex announced that it will be supporting the upcoming VeChain (VEN) Thor token swap. Bitfinex will be handling everything associated with the token migration in order to ensure a smooth and trouble-free migration for all the users.

VeChain launched its independent blockchain VeChainThor on June 30. The blockchain announced it on Twitter that the blockchain is live and has generated its first block. This is the first major step of VeChain to migrate from Ethereum. Now, the blockchain its revised timeline for VeChainThor wallet migration and token swap.

They claim it to be one the most “secure” wallets in the market and further mentions that it is full of features, services, and opportunities that the word wallet may even be limiting. They plan to make VET a migratable asset which can easily integrate with third-party wallets while retaining the X Node status of the individual.
The token swap services will start around mid-July. On the same day, the mobile wallet token swap service is to start on the same day that the X Node Binding Service ends. The said timeline mentions that roughly three weeks after the mobile wallet token swap service is available, X Node monitoring will resume.
