BitTorrent Foundation unveils more details regarding BitTorrent (BTT) airdrops for TRON (TRX) holders.

On February 11th, 2019, BitTorrent Foundation will initiate its first airdrop of BitTorrent (BTT) to TRON (TRX) holders. The snapshot will be taken when TRON’s block height reaches 6.6 million*. Based on this snapshot, BitTorrent Foundation will initiate its first airdrop of 10,890,000,000 BitTorrent (BTT), corresponding to 1.1% of total supply.

Over the next 12 months following this initial airdrop, 11,880,000,000 BTT will be offered to TRX holders, corresponding to 1.2% of total supply. In 2020, the BitTorrent Foundation will airdrop 12,870,000,000 BTT, corresponding to 1.3% of the total supply, and over the next six years, the percentage airdropped will increase by 0.1% per year, reaching 1.7% in 2025.

To reward TRON’s long-time TRX holders, the BitTorrent Foundation also plans to airdrop additional 99,990,000,000 BTT, during online and offline events, corresponding to 10% of the total supply.

If you are holding TRX, you will be eligible for BTT airdrops. All official wallets relaying on TRON’s network and carrying TRX will be eligible for BTT airdrops corresponding to the amount they are holding. No minimum of TRX is required to qualify for BTT airdrops.

Airdrops will be automatically distributed to the TRON (TRX) holders, regardless of whether TRX are frozen. Exchanges supporting the airdrops will be announced on BitTorrent (BTT) official website and BitTorrent’s official Twitter, Blog, and Medium account.
