BlockBase Airgrab #4 Distribution Results

The token distribution for Airgrab #4 will start on February the 10th around 8:00 EST. This airgrab and all following airgrabs will include all accounts that registered for previous airgrabs and that pass our periodic analysis. We decided to change the distribution model because we noticed a big drop on signups during the holidays at the end of 2019 that never recovered to previously registered numbers.

New Update to BBT Distribution Model
New Update to BBT Distribution Model

We’ve been following the number of signups on BlockBase monthly airgrabs for three and a half months now, and we’ve noticed a big drop on the number of signups. The first airgrab had 20k signups, from which 10k accounts were selected, the second had 27k signups where 15k accounts selected, but the third one had only 5k signups and only 2.5k accounts selected. We’re on airgrab #4 now, and currently only 1.2k accounts have signed up for the airgrab.

The token distribution for Airgrab #3 will start tomorrow, January 11, around 07:00 EST. This airgrab had 5,015 signups which is the lowest number so far on BlockBase's airgrabs. Because of that, all participants that followed the rules and that weren't banned will receive much more BBT than the participants from previous airgrabs.

Two new rules for airgrabbing after December 20

The goal of BlockBase’s airgrab is to have a broad and fair distribution of tokens. That’s why it was designed with a 24-month period, where any account can grab. Unfortunately, this model has suffered from abuse twice now, on airgrab #1 and on airgrab #2. Our analysis tools enabled us to detect thousands of accounts that belonged to the same entities, which were used to mass register.

BlockBase Airgrab #2 Distribution Results

The token distribution for airgrab #2 will start tomorrow, on December 11, around 10:00 EST. We had again many abusive registrations, similar to what happened on airgrab #1. As said before, the goal of BlockBase’s airgrab is to have a fair and broad distribution of tokens. Registration abuse isn’t in any way aligned with the goal of that distribution model. Therefore, all accounts marked as abusive won’t receive any tokens and won’t be able to register on future airgrabs.

Use cases for Sidechains

The scalability problem is one that has plagued the Blockchain community since the very early days of Bitcoin. Due to the nature of decentralization and proof-of-work security, the speed at which transactions can be approved and included in the blockchain is naturally limited, and there’s only so much you can do by increasing block sizes and reducing the time between each block.
