Happy Birthday to both Bitcoin and ExFi Token!

Flare Finance would like to welcome our fellow holders to the next phase in our development:

ExFi Gamma Phase!

But first…

Information on Airdrop Delays

Due to community uproar in regards to the ratio and airdrop completion time, we felt it was necessary to provide a post-mortem on the misfire to make things as clear and transparent as possible.

The pre-announced airdrop ratio was expressly stated as an estimate.
At the time we were undecided on airdropping to the Flare Foundation and also planning to burn all of the tokens from exchanges who didn’t participate. Since that time we have spoken with many exchanges which changed our perspective.

We found exchanges weren’t against distributing the airdrop to their rightful owners due to a number of understandable factors. With listing a new asset comes the need for a proper review to be conducted including looking into security, regulatory factors, and scheduling issues that come with managing new project 100’s-1,000’s of requests per day + live support and bug fixes. CEFI systems aren’t malicious actors looking to steal from their customers but have an enormous amount of responsibility as custodians to safely manage their customers funds meaning due diligence is not something they will rush. As the community continues rapidly to scale we are learning some of these lessons first hand.

For these reasons burning the exchanges $EXFI tokens and thus taking the exchange’s choice to wait see away we would likely be burning bridges to future support which did not seem to be in the communities best interest. This being said, the only exchange that was removed entirely from the snapshot was BitStamp, and their 195,000,000~ SGB will not be included in distribution.

Besides this, the Flare Foundation was added to the snapshot to enable the Foundation the opportunity to burn or distribute the $EXFI as STSO rewards. This increased the amount of “circulating” SGB from 9.5B to 15.7B SGB, thus increasing the amount of needed $SGB to receive 1 EXFI. This resulted in the Foundation receiving close to 16M~ EXFI. The Foundation may elect to do whatever with this supply that they please. In a recent tweet, the Foundation made clear what this action will be:

Since the time of writing the FlareNetwork team has elected to burn 100% of their token supply reducing the starting circulating supply of EXFI

ExFi will now switch gears into supporting its primary and secondary governance tokens, $EXFI and $SFIN. The ratio that $EXFI has been airdropped to $SGB holders is:

392.9776857232 $SGB per 1 $EXFI

This ratio includes the entire circulating supply, wrapped SGB supply, Flare Networks LTD, and Flare Foundation supplies. The Flare Foundation, and Flare Network Limited, will decide what to do with their portion of the $EXFI distributed to them. We appreciate there awesome continued support during our time building on the network!

Experimental Finance Token Remint

In addition to the distribution changes, we have also taken the time to remint the token to ensure the initial distribution did not cause any ratio variances. The new token should now be visible in your wallet, if not, please add the following contract address to your MetaMask wallet:
