Swapping ZERO for RELAY

Swap schedule

All the RELAY tokens are not delivered right from the launch.

Here is the schedule extracted from the official white paper


Swap ZERO to RELAY - daily limits (until August 10th)

Normally, ZERO can be swapped to RELAY on any of these chains: Polygon, Ethereum, Avalanche, BSC.

Team may announce that on a particular days, only a part of the chains are supported, follow their announcement on Telegram https://t.me/relaychainannouncements

Between August 3rd and August 10th, there is a daily limit on how much RELAY is available to swap: The supply is distributed across all chains supporting the swap.
When the swap can start on a particular day (typically from 2pm EST) and the supply of one chain has been depleted: You can cross chain your ZERO to another chain, to try swapping to RELAY on another chain (https://app.relaychain.com/#/transfer).

After August 10th, all the remaining RELAY will be available to swap until September 12th, without any daily limit.

How to swap ZERO to RELAY

Go to the page https://app.relaychain.com/#/relay-sale
It's a 2 step process: Approve the swap request, then do the swap.

A video tutorial can be downloaded at https://docs.relaychain.com/vid/Zero-to-Relay-swap.mp4.

  1. Make sure that your wallet is connected and you are on the chain you want to swap your ZERO to RELAY.

  2. if there is a disabled "Swap" button (between August 3rd and August 10th), it means that there is no RELAY available on that chain to swap at that moment. Either bridge your ZERO and try on another chain, either wait for the day after (see swap schedule above).

  3. If "Swap" button is active, click on max or enter manually the number of ZERO to swap (=> for example, between August 3rd and August 10th, if there are not enough RELAY left to swap to on the selected chain, check how much is available on the displayed message). Click on "Approve" to start the process.

  4. Confirm in MetaMask the transaction. Depending on the state of the network, you may have to adjust gas settings.

  1. Click on "Swap" to start the 2nd step of the process.

  2. Confirm in MetaMask the transaction. Depending on the state of the network, you may have to adjust gas settings.

  3. When it's successful, you will see the total amount of Relay you hold on the network you just swapped on.


Note for the period between August 3rd and August 10th:

  • If the RELAY tokens were depleted at the time of the swap attempt, swap transaction was pending until timing out by itself.
    Team decided once to supply more tokens on some chains, so pending transactions still went through for some users..
