Newly developed Bitshares Airdrop Tool tech: Airdropping Bitshares assets in proportion to user balances! ☔ (v0.2.71 release)

in #bitshares5 months ago (edited)


What is the Bitshares Airdrop Tool?

It's a recently released multi-platform application which enables anyone to perform airdrops (asset distributions) on multiple Bitshares based blockchains.

So what's changed in v0.2.71?

An additional airdrop algorithm has been created!

The new "Asset Freebie" algorithm lets you assign winning tickets to users, either one per valid asset balance or a proportional quantity of tickets to the quantity of assets in the user's balance!


This works for all assets which are currently in leaderboard user's balances.

So, if you've created your own assets on Bitshares based blockchains, you can now easily reward their holders with say an NFT!

For example, on the Bitshares production blockchain, creating an LTM + Bitshares focused proportional airdrop of 10000 BTS results in the following data for the first 3 airdrop recipients:

        "user": "abc.btsbots (1.2.31074)",
        "ticketQty": 1,
        "ticketsValue": 68061675.46621,
        "percent": "0.24272",
        "assignedTokens": 5239.941589999999
        "user": "beos.gateway (1.2.1590396)",
        "ticketQty": 1,
        "ticketsValue": 25363631.95587,
        "percent": "0.24272",
        "assignedTokens": 1952.69876
        "user": "btsbots (1.2.31073)",
        "ticketQty": 1,
        "ticketsValue": 18000042.93527,
        "percent": "0.24272",
        "assignedTokens": 1385.78976

The create airdrop page's UX has also been improved, so now you won't be bothered by advanced settings nor block numbers if the airdrop algorithms you've chosen do not require their configuration.
