The company however recently made a whooping acquisition. The company in an outstanding branding push purchased a million dollar name. No, the use of ‘a million’ is not merely an adjective, the domain did actually cost a million dollars!
The domain name that has been bought is aelf.com. The company had been, since a long time operating on the domain name aelf.io. The .io TLD is well known, and is very popular with tech businesses. However, a premium .com domain name does give a lot more credibility and prominence to a firm. As of now, the company owns both of the domain names. The .io domain name however redirects to the .com domain name now.
The aelf mainnet token swap is also live now. The swap comes with an exchange ratio of 1:1 and is valid for 3 months. However to include more people on board, the company is giving an extra 5% drop for the first 15 days.
