*Before proceeding with this tutorial, make sure you’re running the latest version of the ICONex Chrome Extension wallet — v.22.214.171.124 is the first version to support the token swap. If you already have ICONex installed and have funds stored in the wallet, make sure you have either your Keystore/Wallet Password or your Private Key backed up. To update the ICONex Chrome Extension, either enable developer mode and update, or delete the extension and redownload it from the Google Play Store. Keep in mind deleting the extension will wipe your wallet as well, so you’ll need your Keystore file or private key to load it. Please do not proceed if you don’t have your wallet backed up.*
*The ICX token swap will end on September 25, so don’t feel like you have to rush to complete the swap ASAP. Personally, I will be waiting to see if we get Ledger support in the next two months before swapping my tokens.*
1. Create an ICONex ETH Wallet
If you’re already storing your ICX ERC-20 tokens in ICONex, please skip to Step 2. If you don’t already have an ICONex ETH wallet, you’ll need to create one to hold your ICX ERC-20 tokens before request a mainnet token swap. To create an ETH wallet, click on Create Wallet.
