On the date of the TGE (21 March), we will disburse ML tokens as ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.

This is temporary until the release of the Mintlayer mainnet (more information can be found in this blog)

ERC-20 tokens will be migrated to native ML tokens via a Token Migration Event to coincide with the launch of the Mintlayer Mainnet (estimated Q3, 2023).

You have until March 14, 2023 (09:00 CET) to choose between claiming your tokens on Ethereum or claiming your tokens on the Mintlayer Mainnet.

If you do not make a decision by the above time, your tokens will be available to claim on the Mintlayer mainnet.

The launch site (signup and KYC processes) will be closed from March 14, 2023 at 09:00 CET until March 21, 2023 at 09:00 CET.

If claiming your tokens on Ethereum:


  • If claiming your ML on the Ethereum Network (ERC-20) you must provide a non-custodial wallet Ethereum address.

  • You cannot use a centralized exchange/custodial wallet address, or you will lose your tokens.

Wallet addresses from an exchange or custodial wallet are unsupported addresses for claiming ML. If you use one of these addresses, you will lose your tokens.

What Ethereum Address (ERC-20) are allowed? Examples:

Accepted: Non-Custodial Wallets (examples: Metamask, Trust, etc.)

Not Accepted: Custodial Wallets/Exchange Wallets (examples: Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, Bybit, etc.)

If claiming your tokens on the Mainnet:

You can manually select to receive your tokens on the Mintlayer mainnet by visiting the launch site.

If you have not specified that you wish to claim your tokens on Ethereum, your tokens will automatically be available to claim on the release of the mainnet. There is no action required on your behalf.
