Flare Token Distribution Event
It is worth mentioning that the FLR Token Distribution Event (TDE) is one of the most anticipated events in the XRP community. Members of the XRP community have been looking forward to the FLR TDE since the snapshot was taken on December 12, 2020, at 00:00 UTC. However, the team has stalled the FLR airdrop due to some factors linked to the Flare project.
Last year, Flare CEO Hugo Philon noted that FLR’s distribution to XRP holders was stalled due to an upgrade of Songbird, the canary network for the Flare blockchain.
“For all those asking where their FLR is. We are upgrading Songbird before the end of March 2022, with the final two protocols required before the Flare launch. This will then allow us to proceed with the Flare launch….” Philon said.
The Flare team also postponed the exercise from occurring between October 24, 2022, and November 6, 2022, due to its inability to “attract a good number of validators.”
Interestingly, the team scheduled the FLR TDE to be held on January 9, 2023, at 23:59 UTC. The Flare team remains confident that the exercise will occur as scheduled.
Several crypto exchanges have declared support for the upcoming FLR distribution to eligible XRP holders. As reported by TheCryptoBasic, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance reiterated its commitment to support the upcoming FLR airdrop. Coinbase also confirmed to support FLR Tokens to XRP Holders
Aside from Binance and Coinbase, other exchanges that have declared support for the FLR airdrop include Uphold, OKX, KuCoin, Huobi, Gate.io, Crypto.com, Okcoin, MEXC Global, etc.
Notably, the FLR airdrop will be distributed to crypto users who had XRP balances on exchanges and external wallets at the time of the snapshot on December 12, 2020, at 00:00 UTC.
As shared by @sentosumosaba, “58.3% of the genesis Flare supply is allocated to the community. Then after the initial 15% distribution, the majority of entities receive the remainder of their allocation smoothly over 36 months.”
