Token Format

Native UMEE tokens are used across the Cosmos ecosystem, while ERC-20 UMEE tokens are used across the Ethereum ecosystem.

Different blockchains typically use different versions of tokens. Most tokens can be used across blockchains if converted to the correct format. It’s important to know which type of tokens you are in possession of before interacting with any web3 applications.

The UMEE token exists in two forms: a Cosmos native version (the native UMEE token) and an ERC-20 token version native to Ethereum. The two forms of UMEE tokens can be freely converted to one another.
