Unlocking Legacy Tokens

Legacy Wrappers

From time to time, due to a variety of factors from site protection to upgrades, we need to update our contracts. While extremely rare, this would mean users may have funds in legacy contracts.

To access legacy balances for further trading, users are required to unlock them from these legacy wrappers and re-lock them in the live version.

The process involves interacting with the legacy wrapper via Etherscan in order to unlock your tokens:

Please note that it is possible to interact with the legacy wrappers via other sites like myetherwallet, but this tutorial will focus on the unlocking method via Etherscan.


A browser with MetaMask installed (if using a hardware wallet, you'd need to first install Metamask, and then connect your hardware wallet to MetaMask).

How to unlock legacy tokens

Step 1:

Navigate to the appropriate wrapper where your funds are. For this example we'll be using the DAIW contract. Please have your ETH address where your funds are copied. Click on the 'Contract' tab as shown below:

Step 2:

Click on the 'Read Contract' button:

Step 3:

We need to get the exact number for the locked balance, so proceed to option 4 - Balances, in the 'Read Contract' information. Enter your ETH address and then click 'Query.' The exact amount that you have locked will then be shown. Copy this number for the next step.

Step 4:

Proceed to the 'Write Contract' tab this time. Underneath it should display a red icon with the words 'Write Contract'. Click on the option 'Connect to Web3'. This will connect to MetaMask. You will need to sign the message via MetaMask to complete the connection. The red icon will change to green once connection to MetaMask has been made.

Step 5:

In the second option, 'Withdraw', enter the number copied in step 3 into the _value field.

Proceed to enter the following into the next 3 fields: v = 0; r = 0x0; s = 0x0.

For the signatureValiduntilBlock field, we need to enter a block number in the future. To find the current block number, navigate to the Etherscan home page, and note the number under 'Latest Block':

To ensure that the signature won't time out when interacting with the contract, it's good to add at least 30 blocks to the current block to be on the safe side. So in the example above, 9266203 becomes 9266233. We'd then place this number into the signatureValidUntilBlock field. So all together you should have something like this:

Step 6:

Proceed to click on the 'Write' button. You'll need to then enter a gas cost. How much gas you enter is entirely up to you, but if it's too low it might go beyond the signature valid time, so it's good to enter a bit more. To do this, click on the 'Edit' option in the gas amount section in MetaMask, then the 'Advanced' tab. You can then choose the average or fast option. You then need to accept the amount and click through on your hardware wallet if you are using one.

Step 7:

Voila! That should be it. After the transaction has processed, you will see your updated balance with your tokens successfully unlocked and withdrawn from the wrapper contract!
