The 2020 mainnet Token swap update

Since September 2019, NKN has enabled two-way token swaps between NKN Mainnet and ERC-20 tokens and we plan to take further steps to ensure both tokens are available for the foreseeable future. With an abundance of caution for asset security, NKN will start with smaller exchanges and gradually move up to a higher volume of exchanges. 

The official swap tool is located: https://swap.nkn.org
