There are both technical and business reasons for this token swap.
Dawn token has payment and subscription use cases:
In the long term, we are also looking into
By using Dawn for these activities, FirstBlood can support our global user-base better. FirstBlood has a large audience in countries lacking robust and inexpensive digital payment systems. By using a cryptocurrency to reach out to those gamers, we allow them to start their professional gaming career and earn income for playing, without the hurdles that impede the millions of players in traditional markets.
Currently, FirstBlood supports DOTA2 and PUBG PC games. However, we have a pipeline of new PC games and mobile games coming soon.

In order to swap your tokens, the wallet you hold your 1ST tokens in must have the ability to interact with the token swap smart contract. Before you begin, please ensure that your tokens are held in a wallet on the approved list. If they are not, please download one of the approved wallets and transfer your tokens there.
Once your tokens are in the correct wallet, you can proceed to the token swap website, which you can find here. There, you need to create a FirstBlood user account, and we will verify your identity documents.
After we have verified your identity, your wallet will be white-listed, and you can proceed to swap your 1ST tokens directly to Dawn. After the swap is complete, you will receive your Dawn automatically within the same wallet you performed the swap.
FirstBlood did not extensively verify the buyers when FirstBlood ICO was conducted in 2016. The residents of some countries, like the United States, may not be eligible to participate in the buying and trading activity of our token due to the regulations. Thus, we want to make sure that all new token holders come from countries that we can support.
We will check identifying documents of all the token holders performing the swap. You will need to have a government-issued id, such as a passport or driver’s license, to proceed.
See the list of supported ID documents in Jumio’s FAQ section here.
We are committed to the security and protection of your personal information.We will retain your personal identification information online only for the time we need to process it.
After the information is processed, we will relocate the data to offline storage for the duration we have legal obligations to keep it. We want to make sure that no sensitive information is held in online systems to minimize the damage hacks or other cyber criminality can cause.
You can find technical information on our website at Dawn.org.
If you prove that you participated in the FirstBlood ICO in 2016, and you are not eligible for a token swap, please contact our support to see what options we have for you.
As proof, we require you to sign a message with the Ethereum private keys that were used in a transaction to participate in the ICO.
If you have bought tokens not from FirstBlood ICO, but from some secondary market, we cannot help you and we suggest you contact the secondary market you are a customer for.
We swap tokens 1:1 from 1ST tokens to Dawn tokens.
Once 1ST tokens are swapped, they will be burnt and removed from circulation.
In the end, only new Dawn tokens will be left.
As of the writing of this, we will keep running the token swap portal until the designated time has expired. The amount of time will be determined by token holders through community voting. Sufficient time will be provided to give everyone the opportunity to exchange their legacy FirstBlood tokens for Dawn.
At some point, it is likely that we need to close down the swap portal. After that, all token swaps need to be manually processed through FirstBlood support.
If you are a centralised exchange and want to swap tokens on the behalf of your users, please contact our support team.
We will give you a swap guide and set up a special whitelisted address for you that you can use to swap tokens from your hot and cold wallets.
Great news! We have a variety of options for you. Any WalletConnect wallet options are compatible with our token swap tool. Please move your legacy 1ST to one of the approved wallets before swapping. You will also need gas to process your transactions.
