Hot off the press! The highly anticipated $BLUR airdrop is finally live, but there’s a catch: US traders must certify that they are not a US person before claiming their share. It’s a bummer for many US citizens who were eagerly waiting to take part in the airdrop, but alas, “Airdrop.Blur.Foundation Is Not Available In Your Location.”
Don’t despair just yet, though – some users have found a way to work around the issue with a VPN. However, be warned that certifying that you’re not a US person could potentially create tax liabilities. So proceed with caution and do your due diligence before taking any risks.
Why does this matter, you ask? The $BLUR airdrop has been talked about as a potential injection of stimulus, similar to the $ENS and $SOS airdrops from late last year. Unfortunately, the inability to claim $BLUR in the US – without a workaround – is sure to put a damper on what was expected to be a widely anticipated airdrop.
On a positive note, nearly 150,000 users have already traded $1.2 billion worth of NFTs on Blur (excluding wash trading, according to Blur), and the platform boasts a 46% market share. It will be exciting to see how the platform continues to grow and evolve.
So, Blur users, mark your calendars – you have 60 days to reveal and claim your share of the $BLUR airdrop. And keep an eye out for Season 2, which begins now, with bidding and listing points doubled for the next 30 days until 3/14. It’s going to be a wild ride!
Last season, collectors who participated in similar airdrops saw an immediate benefit from flipping the tokens and using the resulting stimulus to purchase NFTs. And with the $BLUR airdrop now live, many traders were eagerly anticipating similar gains.
It seems that since the $BLUR drop, many blue-chip NFTs, including Azuki and MAYC, have been on the move and are up dramatically. This is exciting news for those who were lucky enough to claim their $BLUR tokens and are looking to invest in the NFT space.
With all the action happening in the NFT world, it’s an exciting time to be a collector. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be a part of the action – claim your $BLUR tokens.
