Swap token

Swap is usually performed in a situation where the cryptocurrency project decides to change the blockchainon which he bases his action on another competitive one.

Often, cryptocurrency projects plan to create their own blockchain network. However, they need funds for their activities. In this situation, they collect money under ICO.
