jaypegpowell.eth received 19.92 million BLUR (approximately $6.3 million);
Huang Licheng (machibigbrother.eth) received 6 million BLUR (approximately US$1.9 million).
Community feedback: Some people lose money and some people win money.
Huang Licheng (@machibigbrother) is a well-known user of the Blur platform. He often conducts NFT transactions with over a hundred ETH prices on Blur. However, after the airdrop was announced, he expressed his dissatisfaction with the airdrop on the X platform.
According to analysis by community user @The 0x Juan, Huang Licheng lost approximately US$14 million by brushing Blur, while the value of the Season 2 airdrop tokens was approximately US$2 million.
This is not the first time that Huang Licheng has expressed his dissatisfaction with the Blur platform. On March 29 this year, Blur had the same reaction when it announced an increase in points for brushing orders.(Although it did not affect its subsequent use.)
Similarly, there is also negative feedback on the benefits of this airdrop in the Chinese area.
But not all leading users reported losses. @CirrusNFT reported that they received a six-digit airdrop without any brushing losses.
The release of new platforms may change the rules of the game
On October 10, Blur announced the second quarter airdrop on November 20. The opening price on that day was 0.164 USDT. Then the price of Blur currency rose all the way, hitting a stage high of 0.471 USDT on November 11, with a relative increase of 187 %.
After the airdrop news was released at 8 oclock today, Blur began to fluctuate widely, with the maximum amplitude exceeding 10% in one hour.
At the same time as announcing the airdrop, Blur founder Pacman announced that he would launch a new project Blast, which aims to solve the problem of Blurs high gas fees on Ethereum and the problem of Bids capital precipitation. As of 11 oclock, Blurs closing price was 0.311 USDT, still nearly 90% higher than when the airdrop was announced.
As the leading project on the NFT track, Blurs platform development and revenue are expected to further increase through Blasts new paradigm iteration. Blast plans to launch the mainnet and develop withdrawals on February 24 next year, which is in the middle of Blurs third quarter. It may bring about major changes in costs and processes, and the original local wealth effect of Blurs airdrop will also change accordingly. , users still need to make their own research and judgment.
