Trust Wallet Token (TWT) is the native token of Trust Wallet, the most trusted crypto wallet in the world. Available as a BEP-2 token on BNB Beacon Chain, a BEP-20 token on BNB Smart Chain, and as an SPL token on Solana, Trust Wallet Token provides a range of benefits for holders.
Arguably one of the most interesting benefits for TWT tokenholders is the ability to pay for pull requests for Trust Wallet’s code. Read on to learn how that works and how much it costs.
As a holder of TWT, you are eligible to participate in the evolution of Trust Wallet as a developer. This is made possible by the core development team because the essential parts of Trust Wallet are open-source, and any developer can contribute to the Trust Wallet code through Wallet-Core/the community.
In this case, each time a developer wants to merge a new code into the existing Trust Wallet code, they are required to send a pull request, also known as a merge request. This request enables them to begin the process of making their contribution to Trust Wallet’s main code repository.
For a developer to do this, Trust Wallet charges a fee of 500 TWT, which is then automatically used to process the request.
Further, this fee helps to maintain the cost used to run the infrastructure powering millions of assets and tokens, to reduce spam and scam coins, and to ensure the smooth handling of a massive number of asset requests.
All in all, TWT is the most viable token that you can use to make all your payments as a developer.
As the Trust Wallet ecosystem continues to evolve, there are bound to be more ways in which you can use TWT, both as a user and as a developer. Buy some TWT today and get all its current and future perks!
The easiest way to get your hands on TWT tokens - if you already hold tokens on BNB Smart Chain in your Trust Wallet app - is by swapping existing BEP-20 tokens for TWT (BEP-20).
For example, you could swap BNB (BEP-20) tokens for Trust Wallet (BEP-20) tokens. As soon as they arrive in your wallet, you can use them to pay for a pull request. Just make sure you have enough BNB to cover BNB Smart Chain transaction fees!
Alternatively, you could also swap a range of BEP-20 assets on decentralized exchanges, such as PancakeSwap, directly within the mobile app’s dApp Browser.
PancankeSwap enables you to swap pretty much any BEP-20 token (with enough liquidity) into TWT tokens.
If you don’t already hold BEP-20 tokens in your Trust Wallet app, you could use a centralized crypto trading platform like Binance and buy TWT using any of the cryptocurrencies available in supported TWT trading pairs. Examples include USDT, BUSD, and BTC.
To fund your account, you can use cryptocurrency or a range of fiat currency funding options, which will depend on your geographical location.
