Uphold Joins Other Exchanges to Support FLR Airdrop
Following the announcement, Uphold has joined a list of cryptocurrency exchanges that have declared support for the airdrop event. Last month, Flare Network released a list of cryptocurrency exchanges that have indicated support for the upcoming January 9, 2023, FLR airdrop.
According to Flare Network, 25 cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance, Crypto.com, Huobi, Bitstamp, Upbit, etc., have confirmed their support for the token distribution.
However, crypto exchanges like Coinbase, Bittrex, BitFlyer, and Binance.US were added to the list of crypto trading platforms yet to confirm support for FLR token airdrop.
It bears mentioning that after Flare’s CEO Hugo Philion called out Coinbase team for not responding to inquiries about the upcoming airdrop, the San Francisco-based exchange reiterated its commitment to supporting the upcoming event.
