Lowering Your Tokens via DApp

Lowering is the process of burning your Tokens currently on the Aventus network and claiming them on the Ethereum network.

You can lower any of these token types:

  • AVT token
  • ERC20 token
  • ERC777 token
  • ETH token

This guide will walk you through lowering your tokens to Ethereum using the Lowering DApp.

Lowering is a two-step process:

  • Step 1 - Initiate the Lowering Request to the Chain.
  • Step 2 - Claim your tokens on Ethereum using Metamask.

  • Connect your preferred Substrate wallet to the DApp, following these steps.
  • Select the network for which you have the tokens on the Aventus Network.
  • Ensure you are on the tab for your token type.
