Bitfinex announces last minute support of TRON's BitTorrent airdrop

Jumping on the hype train last minute, notable exchange,  Bitfinex has announced support for the imminent BitTorrent (BTT) airdrop for Tron (TRX) holders.

Some users noted the exchange's slightly bad timing, with the airdrop deadline looming:

The highly anticipated airdrop is said to take place today. A snapshot of all TRX holders funds will be taken at block height 6,600,000, currently at a tantalizing height of 6,591,228.

TRX holders will receive 1.1% of BTT’s total supply, on a ratio of 1:0.11, and will continue to do so in increasing amounts until 2025.
