The Bitshares Airdrop Tool has been updated to v0.2.5! New features, UX improvements and optimizations!
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 v0.2.5?
New airdrop algorithm: Shooting fish in a barrel!
This algorithm has finally been brought to the airdrop tool from the old ticket tracker CLI application.
It's exactly what it sounds like, we shoot fish in a barrel with provably fair ticket selection as the outcome.
The algorithm can be adjusted, specifically whether the projectile should break up and the distance the projectile should travel in water; splintered projectiles with unimpeded trajectory will yield more tickets than a single solid projectile which slows upon impact in the water.
There's an additional page asking you to select an account to proceed with your airdrop, instead of including this step within the 'perform airdrop' page. This has an added benefit of avoiding unnecessary airdrop calculations prior to the user providing their account.
The list of ticket holders excluded from an airdrop now include additional reasons.
An additional prompt to create new airdrops has been added to the calculated airdrops page.
The perform airdrop page has been split up into multiple components to improve maintainability.
This page now also extensively makes use of React's 'useEffect' function, preventing unnecessary recalculations and ensuring responsive UI to user input changes.
The winning ticket JSON within the perform airdrop page now immediately updates when the user changes the airdrop settings.
