The forecasted amount vs Realized amount
There was a real difference between the forecasted airdrop quantity to realized one.
The amount received is almost 1/3 of what was expected and written on the Trybe wallet.
This was a real frustration for most of the users.
The explanation of Trybe team on the technical problem was satisfactory for me.
As an amateur dApp developer on EOS, I know very well that the API’s we use on EOS are mostly at beta version and so is the DFuse system they use to stream the blockchain info.
I also started using this API and realized the kinks of it.
Everything was clear after snap-shot and Tom Norwood, as himself informed people just before airdrop on the problem and shared the correct file with all transperancy.
After all, we all know that this is an airdrop and money from the air.
We can only thank the Trybe Team for this!
One message here : “Never Raise Expectations” even on free airdrops 😉
Verification of Tom Norwood’s file
Next thing to do was, to take the real airdrops and compare it with the file received from Tom.
There are exactly 2607 accounts that have received airdrops.
To compare with 11 December airdrop, there were 9333 accounts then.
What happened? Where did these accounts go?
The answer is staking for 20 days! For December 11 airdrop, staking was not an issue.
So, 6726 accounts are not active in the platform and chosen not to stake their precious Trybe’s for 20 days.
The only difference I found is approximately 50 TRYBE in total, coming from rounding of numbers.
So, thank you again Tom for submitting the correct file before the airdrop.
180 accounts ( %7 of total 2607 ) received the %80 of the airdrops ( average 22 000 Trybe per account )
36 accounts ( %1.4 of total 2607) received %50 of the airdrops ( average 70 000 Trybe per account )
The biggest airdrop receiver is starcitizen1 account with %6.1 of total airdrops. ( approximately 305 000 Trybe )
Much better distrubution than 11 December! It was %3 of the accounts that received %82 of the airdrops.
Claiming and Immidiate decrease of Trybe price on NewDex
As the claiming of airdrops began, the node listener I have put to trace the Trybe transfers began to act like Matrix.
Right after 2 hours, 36.9% of the airdrops were claimed and approximately 130 000 Trybe was sold in the exchanges.
(I missed some due to some streaming problem on DFuse)
This resulted in an immidiate decrease of Trybe price from 0.0017 EOS to below 0.001 EOS and it is still trying to recover.
Thank you for reading and I would appreciate any comment or other perspectives in comment section.
