The team at the exchange announced that they will be taking a snapshot of the Tron network at block 6,600,000 which is predicted to occur on the said date of 11th February. The exchange will then carry out the airdrop for all TRX holders. OKEx also added the following vital information for users of the exchange.
1. Users who deposited their TRX in the OK PiggyBank will also receive the airdrop;
2. For margin traders who have an outstanding balance of TRX, they will also have to repay the BTT to the lender after the airdrop. Please repay the TRX before the airdrop if you do not wish to worry about the BTT repayment afterwards.
In the case of Binance, the team at the exchange made the announcement only a few hours ago. They too will be taking a snapshot of all TRX balances at block height 6,600,000 on the tron blockchain. The ratio of distribution is 1 TRX to 0.11 BTT for the first airdrop and on all exchanges. Huobi will also be supporting the BTT token drop as well as the Huobi wallet.
