We are still scheduled to speak with the below this week so please hold off from contacting them:

  • Bittrex

If there are any other exchanges that wish to confirm their commitment to the FLR airdrop please get in touch so you can be included on the update published next week.

Bankrupt exchanges:

The teams at  FTX, Celsius and Voyager have been contacted in order to discuss how best to handle the token distribution. The ideal situation would be if they are able to provide their customer’s addresses to Flare, so Flare can airdrop them directly. However these matters are never simple because bankruptcy processes are very convoluted and take a lot of time to be resolved. This is why it is generally considered safer to self-custody your crypto in a wallet like BiFrost Wallet, Ledger, Trezor or D’Cent.
