Distribution of KEY & KEYFI Airdrop for KEY Token HODLers on Binance Completed
After the successful completion of all the five snapshots concerning the KEY and KEYFI double airdrop, the distribution of the airdrop happened on 13th July through Binance.
In February, we announced eligible KEY hodlers on Binance would receive not one but two airdrops – KEYFI & KEY tokens.
Both the airdrops were planned with five snapshots, with the KEYFI token one happening on the 28th of each month starting from 28th February 2021, and the KEY token one happening on the 8th of each month starting from 8th March 2021.
The airdrop design was in such a way that the average holding of the user over the five snapshots was to be used for the airdrop distribution. Such a design primarily ensured that users could maximize their holdings over these five months. Moreover, it also helped users who missed a snapshot to participate in the airdrop by holding enough tokens that would make up for the missed snapshot.
We like to thank the SelfKey & KeyFi community for their active participation in both the airdrops and making these airdrops programs an immense success for SelfKey and KeyFi.
