On August 20th, 2018, Ontology released OWallet v0.8.4, highlighted its MainNet launch event in Tokyo, and announced its hiring a developer advocate in San Francisco, California.
The most notable update to the OWallet includes the ability for users to now conduct the NEP-5 to MainNet ONT token swap. This can be achieved through importing a NEO wallet, or sending NEP-5 tokens to an OWallet address and clicking “swap” once the tokens have been received.
Although the OWallet features Ledger support, it does not yet support token swaps directly from the device.
Other updates to the OWallet include create and import ONT ID support, node stake support for current candidate nodes, a delete wallet function, and bug fixes.
