Mainnet Swap

A mainnet swap occurs when a project moves from one blockchain to another. Usually this means a project is transitioning from its ‘testnet’ phase to its ‘mainnet’ phase. This typically involves the migration of tokens from other blockchains (such as Etheruem) to the project’s native blockchain; in this case, users receive protocol coins in exchange for their tokens, which are then ‘burned.’
