Justin Sun announced via Twitter that the TRON Airdrop was successfully completed for the Ethereum community.
The TRX tokens in the current ERC20 form have been forwarded to the Ethereum community and its accounts.
As reported, the TRON Foundation decided to make an Airdrop for all owners of Ethereum who had held at least one Ether after 01/01/2018. In total, TRON has distributed 30 million TRX tokens to the Ethereum community. The action is meant as a thank you to the Ethereum community for their support during TRON’s ERC20 phase.
All owners of Ethereum who have an account in the public block chain from 01/01/2018 00:00:02 UTC (UTC) to April 20, 2018 00:00:04 UTC (UTC) and have ethers sent or certified received (block 4.832.686 to block 5.471.198) or had an account on April 20, 2018 at 00:00:04 clock (UTC), at block 5,471,198 and a credit of at least one ETH.
As Justin Sun, founder of TRON yesterday announced via Twitter, the Airdrop was completed yesterday completely.
Overall, TRON has stated that 602,881 addresses could be identified that were eligible for the Airdrop. If you count to the addresses, you can check at https://etherscan.io/ by entering your ETH address and going to the “Token balances” drop-down menu on the next page.
The Airdrop campaign for the Ethereum community, according to the TRON Foundation, was designed to give Ethereum owners a taste of TRON’s fast transaction times and network. Justin Sun took the opportunity to immediately compare ETH and TRX.
Therefore, the Airdrop was not only done from charity, but is also a gesture of rivalry between TRON and Ethereum. Although Justin Sun explicitly praised the ability to use the Ethereum Blockchain and the ERC20 Standard during the early development phase. Nevertheless, the comparison shows that both projects are at least partially in competition.
At the editorial time a TRX is traded for around 0.0706 euros and is around 4 percent in the plus. In addition, it remains to be seen how the TRON price will react when Mainnet is released on May 31st.
