Grand Token Fork! Check the details

Dear Grand Time Community,

The fast development of the Grand Time Ecosystem and a rapidly increasing gas fee at the Ethereum network led to the decision about the Grand Token fork execution into the Polygon Blockchain. The switch from the Grand Token v1 into the Grand Token v2 will be performed in the coming days. The Grand Token fork, in the form of the 1:1 token swap, will bring many advantages for the Grand Time Community.

The article will outline the fork background, its outcomes, and Polygon blockchain adding procedure in ERC-20 wallets, that will be required to see and track the Grand Token V2 on Polygon Blockchain.

Fork in a brief — What actions will be required?

The Grand Token fork will be a switch from Grand Token v1 into the Grand Token v2. Grand V2 will be based on the Polygon Blockchain; Grand Token v2 will be upgraded into the safer and lighter version.

Please note that all of the Grand Token Holders will have their Grand Tokens switched automatically. However, all of the holders will need to add Polygon blockchain network on their ERC-20 wallet (Metamask,TrustWallet, MyEtherWallet, Ledger, Trezor, etc.,) in order to see and track the new Grand Token V2.

Fork introduction

As it was mentioned before, the Grand Token fork will be a switch from Grand Token v1 into the Grand Token v2 at the Polygon blockchain. Grand Token V2 will have the same ERC-20 standard; however, the Grand Token v2 will be safer, lighter, and upgraded. In brief, it means that the fork is an establishment of a new, better Grand Token pegged to the old one with a 1:1 ratio. The 1:1 token swap will be done automatically in the coming days.

From December 14, 2021 (5pm UTC time), the old version of the token is no longer supported.

The users holding the current Grand Token V1 at Ethereum-based wallets will receive the same amount of Grand Token V2 automatically in the coming days. The only step required from all of the holders will be to add Polygon blockchain network to their ERC-20 wallet (Metamask,TrustWallet, MyEtherWallet, Ledger, Trezor, etc.,) in order to see and track the new Grand Token V2. The procedure will be explained in the next section.

Before explaining the easy steps of adding a Polygon blockchain to your ERC-20 wallets, let’s check how it will benefit the Grand Time Ecosystem.

Fork advantages

The increasing fees at the Ethereum network, as well as the very high demand for Grand tokens, made Grand Token v1 not as effective as it could be. Grand Time Team decided to perform the Grand Token fork and maintain the sustainable long-term development of the Grand Time Ecosystem by creating the new, upgraded version of the Grand Token — the Grand v2.

The Grand Token fork is switching the following old contract address:

0x4911f8cebd546ef805e81dd0b0084a90d11a7688 (Old Grand Token)

into the new version of the contract address that will be announced in the coming days.

The new, improved version of the token will cause the following amenities for the Grand Time Community:

  • reduction of Grand Token transfer & purchase fees
  • reduction of the trading fees at future exchanges where Grand Token will be added.
  • reduction or partial removal of the fees for the Grand Time ecosystem products & features
  • compilation of the smart contract into a lighter and transparent code

So on, the new version of the Grand Token will not only reduce the required transaction fees but will also diminish the future fees at the whole Grand Time Ecosystem Products(Grand Social Mining, Grand Wallet, Grand Messenger, Grand School, Grand Exchange, Grand Terminal, Grand NFT Auction, Grand Metaverse) . In the long run, the solution will save a lot of gas fees for all the Grand Token Holders.

Fork Effects and Timeline

For most of the Grand Token Holders, the fork will be just a non-visible backend operation that will upgrade some Grand utilities. However, it will also lead to some minor changes that will be experienced.

The Grand Token Fork will cause the following effects:

  • Grand Token Holders will need to add Polygon Blockchain Network to their wallets.
  • The new Token contract address will be created
