Airdrop #2 — Important Updates!

The community has changed a few rules of Airdrop #2 through governance.

✅ Airdrop #2 — What stays the same?

Base Eligibility

The base eligibility criteria of 500 XLM/yXLM & 1 AQUA stays the same. This criteria allows Aquarius to scan the Stellar blockchain on the snapshot date, helping determine who is eligible for Airdrop #2.

🔀 Airdrop #2 — What has changed?

📸 Snapshot Date

The snapshot date has been moved from Dec. 15, 2021, at 00:00:00 UTC and will now take place on Jan. 15, 2022, at 00:00:00 UTC. This change allows the Aquarius team time to test and implement the changes needed for working out everyone’s share of AQUA from Airdrop #2.

♒️ AQUA Holdings

Once base eligibility is determined, the airdrop formula also adds a user’s AQUA balance to calculation, increasing a user’s airdrop reward. AQUA tokens are theoretically converted into an XLM balance using an average market price.

💱 AMM — Liquidity Pools

XLM, yXLM & AQUA held in AMMs will count towards your Airdrop #2 calculation. There is no need to exit liquidity pools to prepare for the airdrop snapshot. Instead, the formula will automatically add all your XLM/yXLM & AQUA holdings in AMMs to the reward calculation.

🔒 AQUA Lock Multiplier

As part of proposal 19, a multiplier will be added to a user’s reward calculation if they choose to lock AQUA tokens before the snapshot.

🗓 Distribution Schedule

In the initial airdrop, eligible users received claimable balances of their rewards for release at the same time and day every month from August 16 until December 16, 2021. This distribution method led to the flooding of the Stellar network as users attempted to claim, transfer, and exchange their AQUA rewards all at the same time.
