ChangeNOW issued its own NOW tokens on May 28th, 2018. NOW token distribution has started with a gradual airdrop of 60 000 000 tokens for its exchange customers and Affiliate partners. For affiliate partners, ChangeNOW has distributed 30 000 000 NOW tokens, proportional to their turnover. On March, 2019, ChangeNOW decided to go hybrid with the migration. The total NOW token supply, 200 million, was divided into two equal parts. One half was burned on Ethereum blockchain and re-launched on the new Binance Mainnet in order to provide the holders with a choice of the blockchain to store the tokens on. The migrated NOW token became one of the first tokens to be listed on Binance DEX. The other part that is still on the ERC-20 standard remained intact and as of right now is traded on IDEX, EtherDelta, and ForkDelta.
