BitTorrent Releases Details Regarding Its Upcoming BTT Token Airdrops for TRON (TRX) Holders

BitTorrent, the peer-to-peer file sharing platform acquired by the TRON distributed ledger technology (DLT) project has published more details concerning the BTT token airdrops to all TRON (TRX) holders scheduled to go live on February 11, 2019, according to a press release on January 20, 2019.

Snapshot To Be Taken At Block Height 6.6 Million

As stated in the press release, the BitTorrent team will take a snapshot of the entire TRX tokens held by investors when TRON reaches a block height of 6.6 million, and it would execute an airdrop of 1.1 percent of the total circulating supply of BTT (10,890,000,000) on February 11, 2019.

If all goes as planned, the team says it's looking to airdrop another 11,880,000,000 BTT to TRX holders over the next 12 months (1.2 of total BTT circulating supply), with another 99,990,000,000 BTT (10.1 percent of the total circulating supply) airdropped to all long-term holders of TRX during online and offline events.

That's not all, the BitTorrent Foundation has also made it clear that it would airdrop 12,870,000,000 BTT (1.3 percent of the total circulating supply), and the percentage of the airdropped tokens will be increased by 0.1 percent each year, hitting 1.7 percent in 2025.

BTT Airdrops to Follow the 1:1 Rule

The team has hinted that all wallets relaying on the TRON blockchain network and holding any amount of TRX tokens will be eligible to receive the same amount of BTT.

In essence, a cryptocurrency trader who has 1 TRX on his/her wallet will also receive 1 BTT and so on. There's no minimum, or maximum amount of TRX required to qualify TRON investors for the airdrop and the BitTorrent team has said that the BTT airdrops are automatically distributed to all TRX holders regardless of whether their TRX tokens are frozen or live.

At current, the entire number of cryptocurrency exchanges supporting the BTT airdrop remain unknown, however the team says it plans to make an official announcement on its Website and social media handles shortly and all exchanges and trading venues are required to initiate the BTT airdrop process on February 11, 2019, while trading of BTT is expected to begin on February 12, 2019.
