Bitfinex distributes Everipedia (IQ); Enables trading for IQ July 13, 2018

We are pleased to announce the distribution of Everipedia (IQ) IQ as part of the EOS airdrop campaign. Airdropped tokens have been distributed based on the settled EOS wallet balances as they were on June 2nd 21:59:59 UTC - the time of the EOS Mainnet Snapshot.

The Everipedia (IQ) distribution coefficient is computed to be ~1.09. Since the IQ airdrop is 5.1 IQ for each EOS, the resulting calculation yields ~5.45 IQ per EOS for qualifying balances.

Bitfinex Distributes EOS Airdrops: Support for ADD, ATD, MTO & IQ July 09, 2018

We are pleased to announce the distribution of ADD, ATD and MTO as part of the EOS airdrop campaign. Airdropped tokens have been distributed based on the settled EOS wallet balances as they were on June 2nd 21:59:59 UTC - the time the EOS Mainnet Snapshot was taken.

The methodology for determining a settled balance includes:

  • All calculations will use a database snapshot from June 2nd.
  • All net unhedged EOS wallet balances will receive airdrops. For example, if at the instant of the airdrop in June a user had a wallet balance of 5.0 EOS and was short 2.0 EOS/XXX, their net unhedged balance at that moment was 3.0 EOS.
  • Margin longs in EOS/XXX will not receive airdrops.
  • Margin shorts in EOS/XXX will not pay airdrops.
  • EOS lenders will receive airdrops.
  • The MEET.ONE (MTO) distribution coefficient is computed to be ~1.09. MTO tokens have been credited on a 2:1 basis (1 MTO for 2 EOS). MTO withdrawals have been enabled as of July 7th.

    The EOS ADD (ADD) distribution coefficient is computed to be ~1.09. ADD tokens have been credited on a 2:1 basis (1 ADD for 2 EOS). ADD withdrawals have been enabled as of July 7th.

    EOS Mainnet Activation Vote June 13, 2018

    In order for the EOS mainnet to go live, an equivalent of 15% of all issued EOS tokens (approx. 150 million of the total outstanding EOS) must vote for at least one producer. This threshold is built into EOS, and ensures that the mainnet has sufficient community support before considered active. Only upon mainnet activation is it possible to unstake tokens for withdraw, and there is a three day waiting period before receiving the tokens after the unstake request has been accepted by the network.

    Initial plans were for Bitfinex to enable BP voting on our platform only after the 15% threshold had been reached and the network deemed active. However, for the sake of added transparency, and to provide our users with an opportunity to participate in the activation of the EOS network, we have decided to host a public vote on the following topic:

    Should Bitfinex temporarily stake EOS balances to contribute to EOS network activation?

    Users will be able to vote by staking their EOS using the following guide to complete the vote process:

    EOS Mainnet Activation Vote.

    Please note that this is not the EOS Block Producer vote. This is a vote pertaining to whether or not Bitfinex should temporarily stake EOS balances to contribute to EOS network activation. EOS Block Producer voting will be enabled based on the outcome of the Mainnet Activation vote.

    You can monitor the EOS Mainnet progress and official vote count

    EOS MainNet Token Swap Update – June 1, 2018 June 01, 2018

    EOS ERC20 tokens will be frozen by Block.one on June 2nd, 22.00 UTC. Bitfinex will freeze deposits and withdrawals 6 hours before the airdrop, at 16:00 UTC. Please note that this time differs from the update released two days ago.

    We would like to remind our users that we cannot guarantee the precise conversion of tokens sent to users deposit addresses after 16:00 UTC due to Ethereum network fees.

    New Tokens Added May 31, 2018

    Over the past two weeks, the Nectar community had the opportunity to select which tokens would be the next to be listed on the Ethfinex exchange. Today, we have listed the four tokens with the most votes from our users. Those four tokens are Lympo, BLOCKv, Dadi and UTRUST. Deposits for these tokens are now enabled and trading will go live at 17.00 CET.

    Moving forward, you will all have the opportunity to vote on the next batch of tokens to be listed to the exchange every two weeks; this reflects our first steps towards democratising the governance of the Ethfinex platform. Anyone holding Ethfinex Nectar tokens (NEC) receives voting tokens at the start of each vote in direct proportion to the number of NEC they hold. These can be used to vote or traded on the EVT/USD market.

    Trading for the next batch of tokens is now live. Please visit Nectar.community to view the ongoing vote.
