Augur, the event betting company powered by Bitcoin Era, says users of its REP crypto-currency should migrate their tokens once a new version of the platform is available from July 28.
July! Reasons for the danger. Is the storm coming?
According to an announcement on the platform’s website on June 29, Augur v2 will be launched on the main Ethereum network (ETH) at the end of next month. This means that REP token holders must manually migrate their tokens to the new version, REPv2. Augur stated that the current tokens will be renamed „REPv1“ to dispel any confusion.
„Use it or lose it“ says the platform
In addition, the company said the launch of Augur v2 would require all REP token holders to participate in any forks, should they occur. Those who do not do so within 60 days will see their funds „forever unable to participate in any of the forks and future universes of Augur.

The platform’s native REP token, now REPv1, ranks 44th in market capitalization and is trading at USD 16.77.
