Recently the Stellar Development Foundation partnered with Blockchain Wallet to airdrop $150 million value of XLM, to the owners of the wallet. The Block declared that the first batch of XLM would be shared this week for all users who signed up to use the Blockchain wallet.
The team behind the stellar Development Foundation hopes that this partnership will make XLM a real rival for other cryptocurrencies from the market.
The co-founder of Stellar, Jed McCaleb declared the following about the airdrop:
“We believe that airdrops are central to creating a more inclusive digital economy. Giving away lumens for free is an invitation to communities to design the services they need.
By working with Blockchain to increase the availability and active use of lumens on the network, we will increase the network’s utility by many orders of magnitude.”
Just $25 value of XLM each
To share some respect to the worth of XLM will distribute for each user, the team of Blockchain wallet declared that after verifying the identity when signing up to the wallet, $25 value of XLM will be shared to each. Furthermore, there will be a first- come and the first-served clause in this airdrop which says:
” Offer available until XLM giveaway supply is depleted. Limit of one XLM airdrop per person, unless participating in any bonus activities.
A person can receive the XLM airdrop in only 1 Blockchain Wallet. XLM is provided on a first come first rewarded basis, with priority for those with the oldest, completed (i.e., accounts with a verified email address) Blockchain Wallets.
Participants must have an eligible account, be willing to verify their identity, and reside in an eligible market or jurisdiction.”
The eligible countries are right here. When the airdrop is collected, the owner can do whatever he wants with them.
