What is Gas (GAS)?

NEO(was AntShares) is the use of blockchain technology and digital identity to digitize assets, the use of smart contracts for digital assets to be self-managed, to achieve "smart economy" with a distributed network.


Economic Model NEO has two native tokens, NEO (abbreviated symbol NEO) and NeoGas (abbreviated symbol GAS). NEO, with a total of 100 million tokens, represents the right to manage the network. Management rights include voting for bookkeeping, NEO network parameter changes, and so on. The minimum unit of NEO is 1 and tokens cannot be subdivided. GAS is the fuel token for the realization of NEO network resource control, with a maximum total limit of 100 million. The NEO network charges for the operation and storage of tokens and smart contracts, thereby creating economic incentives for bookkeepers and preventing the abuse of resources. The minimum unit of GAS is 0.00000001. In the creation block of the NEO network, 100 million NEOs are generated, GAS has not yet been generated. 100 million GAS, corresponding to the 100 million NEO, will be generated through a decay algorithm in about 22 years time to address holding NEO. If NEO is transferred to a new address, the subsequent GAS generated will be credited to the new address. The NEO network will set a threshold by voting to exempt GAS from a certain amount of transfer transactions and smart contract operations to enhance the user experience. When a large amount of spam transactions occur, NeoID can be used to prioritize transactions and smart contracts with qualified identities. Transactions and smart contracts with no qualifying digital identities can get priority by paying GAS. GAS distribution


GAS is generated with each new block. The initial total amount of GAS is zero. With the increasing rate of new block generation, the total limit of 100 million GAS will be achieved in about 22 years. The interval between each block is about 15-20 seconds, and 2 million blocks are generated in about one year.


Each year around 2 million blocks will be generated and the initial generation will be 8 GAS per block. There will be an annual reduction of 1 GAS per block, per year, to coincide with the passing of every 2 million blocks. The reduction will continue down to just 1 GAS per block and will be held at that rate for around 22 years. After the 44 millionth block the total GAS generated will have reached 100 million and from this point there will be no further generation of GAS from new blocks.


According to this release curve, 16% of the GAS will be created in the first year, 52% of the GAS will be created in the first four years, and 80% of the GAS will be created in the first 12 years. These GAS will be distributed proportionally in accordance with the NEO holding ratio, recorded in the corresponding addresses. NEO holders can initiate a claim transaction at any time and claim these GAS tokens at their holding addresses.

CoinSwitch is a cryptocurrency exchange providing the best exchange rate on transactions by aggregating all leading exchanges and comparing their rates in real time. We support over 275 cryptocurrencies and more than 45000 pairs for exchange.
CoinSwitch is built on the most trusted exchanges in the world. We provide a seamless experience by integrating with reliable and secure exchanges and helping our customers get the best rates while ensuring their security.
Unlike ordinary money, cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, so the rate may fluctuate. It may happen that the exchange rate which you see before the transaction is different (high or low) after transaction gets completed. In that case, the exchanged quantity which you receive may differ from what you see during the comparison.

Our fees depends on the exchange you select for your transaction. The conversion rate you see is inclusive of the fees.
Note: Below fees does not include any amount charged by the exchange itself.

A wallet is a digital place for your coins to be stored. Each coin has a certain wallet provider. That could be official GUI-wallets, web wallets and other applications. The wallet address represents a randomly generated combination of digits and letters. CoinSwitch doesn’t provide wallet addresses and never stores user deposits. To exchange cryptocurrencies, you need to have a wallet address.
Just figure out, what coin do you want to buy and seek for a stable wallet version. As a rule, each coin has its official wallet client. Note that each wallet has its unique address or a tag with a private key that is required to restore your wallet if lost. CoinSwitch never asks your private keys. Store them in a safe place and never show anyone. Once private keys are stolen, your wallet with all the coins will be lost forever.
In each transaction, there is always a sender and a recipient. The recipient’s address is the wallet address to receive the money you want to buy. For example, if you want to buy Ethereum (ETH), in the field, you should specify the ETH wallet address. In general, the recipient’s wallet address is the address we send coins bought, once a transaction is finished.
A hash (or the tx/transaction ID) is a unique address of your transaction in a blockchain. Mostly, the hash is a combination of digits and lower case (upper in Ripple) letters that represents a proof that money is sent. Whenever you make a payment, you receive a hash displayed in your wallet. Hash should be located in a blockchain. Our support team may ask you to provide a hash. Sometimes it’s required to find your payment and resolve your issues if any.
CoinSwitch supports most of the wallets. If your wallet address is recognized as invalid, there is always a reason: You confused Dash (DASH) with Dashcoin DSH). These are two different coins with two different amounts. You confused Factom (FCT) with Fantomcoin (FCN). Different currencies as well. Typo or character missing. Make sure that the address you specify matches the actual address of your wallet.

A memo is a combination of digits and letters required to assign STEEM to a certain Steem wallet user. Memos are used in Steem wallets and indicated right here.

In the wallet, a memo should look like this

Memo

If you want to buy Steems, make sure that you've specified a correct memo while putting in a wallet address.

Note that you have a nickname on steemit.com, you may use it as your wallet address that doesn't require a memo.

A destination tag is a short complementary combination of characters required for certain Ripple wallets. While buying Ripple, make sure that you have specified a destination tag if required. Likewise, when you send us Ripples, don't forget about a destination tag provided near the address to send to.

Destination Tag

The message is an additional tag required for XEM transaction. Whenever you send or receive XEM, make sure that you've input a message. You may find it in your wallet, and it should look like this.

Message Tag

For all the coins available on CoinSwitch, the buying process is same.

  1. Go to coinswitch.co and select the coin you want to exchange on the 'YOU HAVE' and the coin you want to buy on 'YOU GET' fields
  2. Enter the amount you want to exchange in 'YOU HAVE' field and click 'Continue!'
  3. Check the amount specified and the amount you’re gonna get.
  4. You will see the details of all the exchanges with the rates they are offering.
  5. Click the 'Exchange' of the best exchange rate.
  6. Specify the recipient’s wallet address.
  7. Once again, check everything attentively. Note that the amount is estimated, so it may be more or less at the end of your transaction. If you’re OK with this, proceed to the next step.
  8. Now your transaction is created. You see a QR code and a wallet address below. This is the address you should send us your money to be exchanged. Go to the wallet from where you should send money and paste this address into a corresponding field. If you use a mobile wallet app, just scan the QR. Once we receive your money, we’ll exchange it and sent to the address you provided.
  9. It shows a progress bar with transaction status. Once it’s finished, you’ll be informed. Usually, it takes 15-30 minutes. In some cases, waiting time might be increased.
  10. After a transaction is finished, you get a receipt with an output transaction hash This hash is a proof that your transaction is finished.

CoinSwitch doesn’t have amount restrictions. However, there are some nuances.

If an amount is too low, make sure that it will cover all the network fees a blockchain takes. It means that the amount you are going to send and the amount you are going to get should be enough to cover input and output network fees taken by a blockchain.

If your funds to be exchanged are insufficient, you will see a message.

Please stick with this recommendations. Otherwise, there is a high risk that your money will be lost.

Some exchanges provide a max limit as well.

Every cryptocurrency is based on a blockchain. The process requires a network fee. This is a commission a blockchain takes from the amount you and we send. This is why it is so important to include network fees in the amount you send and going to get. If the amount is too low to cover the fees, a transaction will fail.
CoinSwitch transactions take 15-30 minutes to be processed. If a transaction is large (around 1 BTC worth), processing may take longer depending on the size of your transaction and blockchain capacity.
Blockchain transactions are irreversible. Once the money is sent, it cannot be rolled back. So if you are going to exchange cryptos, think twice and check attentively all the payment details prior to sending money.

As a rule, our transaction takes 15-30 minutes to be processed. If your transaction takes longer, this might be due to a wide range of factors.

  1. Blockchain overloaded. There are many transactions pending including yours. These issues take place on blockchains. All you have to do is to wait. CoinSwitch doesn't control blockchain delays.
  2. DDoS attacks. Any platform may experience such issues. In this case, all you have to do is wait.

This might be due to several reasons.

  • The transaction hasn't been included to a blockchain. Cryptocurrencies aren't stable, so minor errors might occur. Either can we refund money or push a payment through if you provide the hash (a tx ID) of your transaction.
  • ETC and ETH confusion. The addresses of Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETH) are of the same structure. If you send ETC or ETH, make sure that you've created an appropriate transaction on CoinSwitch. For example, if you create an ETH to BTC transaction, make sure that you send ETH, not ETC. Otherwise, your transaction will be stuck.
  • Wrong XEM message. While sending XEM, make sure that you've put a correct message. It's indicated here and looks like a combination of digits and letters. Messages like 'Hey how are you', 'I love CoinSwitch' etc. are lovely but don't work, unfortunately :)
  • Other internal errors. Even our perfect system may lag or experience internal issues. If you suppose that this is the case, report it to [email protected]

If you have transferred the amount, then you can surely close the browser tab. Our system will automatically complete the transaction, and the amount will be deposited into your recipient wallet address.
Just keep the the order-id with you for any follow ups.

Blockchain is peer to peer network where transactions need to be confirmed by the network. This process can take from few minutes to several hours depending on the cryptocurrency and load on the network.
CoinSwitch or its partners don't play any role in blockchain confirmations. Please be patient in case of delay. Your fund is safe and the exchange will proceed once our partner receives the deposits.
Unfortunately not. Once funds are sent to a wrong address, there is nothing we can do to recover them. This is why it is extremely important to double check the address you enter while ordering.
