At 0x, we believe that tokens are most useful when they are widely used to the extent practicable. In the case of accessing, managing and paying with a range of different cryptocurrencies, a wide distribution is also critically important for network security. Unfortunately, not everyone have spare time, opportunity, and technical proficiency necessary to get on the earliest moments of a token generation’s events.
In 0x’s case, 4% has been set aside from the total issuance, ready to be distributed by an automatic airdrop. That is, now every address on the Ethereum blockchain that has a balance over a minimum threshold of 0.1 ETH will receive a share of this 4% that is proportional to their share of ETH.
For every 1 ETH that you hold, you can receive 100 ZRX tokens as an airdrop. Existing ZRX holders will also benefit from this airdrop, for every 1 ZRX that you already have, you can receive an additional 0.3 ZRX.
Exchanges will not support the ZRX airdrop and we will not be able to airdrop the tokens to your wallet. In order to receive the ZRX airdrop you need to:
1. Have a personal Ethereum wallet (like MyEtherWallet, Parity and etc.) where you hold the actual private key.
2. Withdraw your ZRX and ETH balance from the exchange you have them on your personal wallet.
3. Enter your address, balance and follow the steps above to charge your tokens.
0x is an open, permissionless protocol allowing for ERC20 tokens to be traded on the Ethereum blockchain.
