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.

The exchange announced their full support yesterday in an official announcement, tying themselves into a 5-year airdrop program with the incipient BTT token for all TRX holders.  

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

Justin Sun also welcomed the addition of Bitfinex (no matter how late they were to the party…)

Airdrop incoming.

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.

Meanwhile, the price of BTT has fluctuated quite wildly. Currently enjoying a nice boost of +8.08% in the 24-hour charts.

Interestingly, while the rest of the market enjoyed sustained gains from Friday's pump, TRX actually retraced quicker than most. TRX is currently up +1.66% in the 24 hours 

Justin sun recently tied the two cryptocurrencies together, alluding to their dependency on each other:

It’s not quite clear how a razor and a blade are going to create a new internet economy driven by decentralization, but knowing Sun, it will probably include an ICO…

Bitfinex always provides only quality programs to the customers
12 Feb, 2019 - 10:14

19 Feb, 2019 - 03:48
This month Bitfinex will get a huge profit! Support of TRON's BitTorrent airdrop is a great idea for attracting new traders
13 Feb, 2019 - 22:13

bitfinex has to cope with the users amount decrease this month
14 Feb, 2019 - 08:29
I dont rly focus on Bitfinex in trades that much, its just another platform with good offers which aint bad to have nearby
30 Mar, 2019 - 12:55
you can hardly call Bitfinex perfect or anything, but its solid and it gets the job done all the time, i think thats what matters
15 Apr, 2019 - 20:46
people are used to talk too much, think that the results of Bitfinex will shut them all up very soon
15 Apr, 2019 - 21:14
Bitfinex doesn't support different non trustworthy things and here is one more example of this.
14 Feb, 2019 - 22:49
Yeah, Tron is a good coin to invest in. Hope it will dev more and more with Bitfinex users help
15 Feb, 2019 - 12:03

20 Feb, 2019 - 09:06
TRX is a good coin, i support it 200 % in bitfinex
20 Feb, 2019 - 19:47
good news. i had a lot of doubts about BTT token and if it would be safe however as Bitfinex announced support for this asset i understand that it is reliable and safe token
21 Feb, 2019 - 12:48
after the successful airdrop bitfinex listed BTT. I am happy to have an opportunity to reade it.
23 Feb, 2019 - 06:34
newer to late, Bitfinex!
24 Feb, 2019 - 07:23

26 Feb, 2019 - 21:57
Bitfinex decision to lists USDT markets wins my respect. I’m glad to work with the team who hears its clients.
22 Mar, 2019 - 17:59
Those who voice dislike for Bitfinex more often than not have not even tried it... but it is certainly easier to join in on the crypto witch hunt, sure
26 Mar, 2019 - 17:43
this Airdrop is a solid idea, Bitfinex should keep makin customers happy like that
26 Mar, 2019 - 19:11
rn crypto is so full of doubts, Bitfinex did the smart thing with that Airdrop, theyre reachin for more clients and thats what they should be doing
26 Mar, 2019 - 20:20
so glad to see BTT get more love, the coin totally deserves it, Bitfinex should keep promotin it whenever possible
26 Mar, 2019 - 20:51
Bitfinex was not created for rich traders per se, but for the experienced ones, there is an important difference
26 Mar, 2019 - 21:02
Ive been a part of airdrop before, thats a very nice feeling, its sweet that Bitfinex offers the same option to its users now
26 Mar, 2019 - 21:05
its awesome to get free BT imho, maybe Bitfinex should do this airdropping thing from time to time?
26 Mar, 2019 - 22:33
I can see the reasoning behind this BTT distribution, it is nice that Bitfinex has a certain strategy in mind
26 Mar, 2019 - 22:58
that was a pretty good idea, im sure that Bitfinex will get ahead with BTT's help
26 Mar, 2019 - 23:22
I think that the distribution of BTT can help Bitfinex and BTT to attract some new traders
29 Mar, 2019 - 17:34
thanks Bitfinex that you continue working on new projects – that airdrop is really cool
29 Mar, 2019 - 17:46
looking forward to seeing something like this airdrop by Bitfinex in the future
29 Mar, 2019 - 18:09
Bitfinex will do everything to help BTT to promote their coin, this is another chance for BTT to become bigger
29 Mar, 2019 - 19:48
well I tend to say that the decision to promote BTT with Airdrop is an innovation, glad that keeps doing interesting things
29 Mar, 2019 - 20:32
No platform is as reliable as Bitfinex right now with Tron's Btt – I won’t change my mind in the near future
30 Mar, 2019 - 13:27
Good to hear about this BTT distribution, a shame I'm not a TRX holder, but I'm still happy for them
30 Mar, 2019 - 13:45
Great, I was just about to get some TRX on Bitfinex.
30 Mar, 2019 - 15:33
This is not a secret that Bitfinex is among leading trading platforms now. They truly deserve their place there.
30 Mar, 2019 - 16:55
Judging by my experience, Bitfinex support works rather well and at a rapid pace, so certain concerns of specific critics make no sense to me
30 Mar, 2019 - 17:09
Those who try to slander Bitfinex must realize that they only ridicule themselves in such a way, and that is all
30 Mar, 2019 - 17:19
Bitfinex will give us more great products – we must only wait!
02 Apr, 2019 - 10:07
I know Bitfinex very good, I work with the platform for a long time and with every update it becomes even better
02 Apr, 2019 - 10:47
the users of Bitfinex admire what the platform releases, I can only agree with that
02 Apr, 2019 - 11:38
Bitfinex is still the unchallenged titan in my eyes, but crypto flows shift quickly, so we have to be prepared for any sudden changes
02 Apr, 2019 - 11:59
I’m sure Bitfinex will take into consideration a huge need of airdrops and will practice them more often!
02 Apr, 2019 - 16:03
I like that Bitfinex supports Tron. These companies are the future of crypto!
03 Apr, 2019 - 13:30
TRX as well as BTT is truly nice coin what makes this distribution even more valuable. Bitfinex wasn’t mistaken.
03 Apr, 2019 - 14:05
In regards of ongoing spread of Tron across crypto, I like that Bitfinex also decided to assist them.
03 Apr, 2019 - 14:16
I’m waiting for more pleasant treats from Bitfinex, I’m sure they will make such airdrops more often!
03 Apr, 2019 - 14:47
It’s nice that Bitfinex went for this airdrop! It terms of Tron massive spread across crypto, this distribution makes sense.
03 Apr, 2019 - 15:07
More fresh ideas from Bitfinex, I like the way this platform does its’ business
05 Apr, 2019 - 18:46
Do you realize how far may go Bitfinex? I think their potential in beyond all other platforms
05 Apr, 2019 - 19:10
I’m excited to be among those lucky TRX holders on Bitfinex! The airdrop pleases a lot!
05 Apr, 2019 - 19:51
What luck! I was thinking about TRX purchasing and Bitfinex is ready to offer some extra benefit. That’s nice!
06 Apr, 2019 - 03:25
another time I see that Bitfinex can be trusted – the company cares about our incomes and their safety
06 Apr, 2019 - 11:24
I would like to continue working on Bitfinex because their security system looks insurmountable for hackers
14 Apr, 2019 - 22:07
The airdrop is perfect gift in any case. My gratitude to Bitfinex.
06 Apr, 2019 - 19:06
I’m a happy TRX holder, how nice it is from Bitfinex to offer us such airdrop!
06 Apr, 2019 - 19:23
This is so pleasant to have some add-on to TRX purchase, I’m encouraged by Bitfinex.
06 Apr, 2019 - 19:48
Analyzing the market I have come to believe that Bitfinex is the most suitable and profitable for me – the fees aren’t giant, service is good and image is quite positive.
07 Apr, 2019 - 13:03
Bitfinex protects crypto and show the example of how to run a platform
10 Apr, 2019 - 23:44
I wouldn’t deny that Im not a fan of Bitfinex, but it would be silly to deny their wish to develop crypto
10 Apr, 2019 - 23:55
hm Ive got a plan to try Bitfinex this season - maybe I'll find what i want here, would be nice at least
11 Apr, 2019 - 00:23
My time with Bitfinex was quite good, I would definitely use this platform in the future!
11 Apr, 2019 - 03:27
hm-m theres a chance that crypto world will change quite a lot this year, so I wonder where Bitfinex fits in the grand scheme of things
11 Apr, 2019 - 05:20
Bitfinex made our trading better and continues doing it, I love the collaboration this platform makes
11 Apr, 2019 - 05:53
bitfinex is actually one of the most interesting exchange from the point of how many reliable tokens are being listed
11 Apr, 2019 - 19:53
Many platforms try to match Bitfinex now but it seems impossible, the exchange has grown extremely fast
14 Apr, 2019 - 21:42
I believe that we all can count on Bitfinex in 2019, the platform is growing and seems like their new aim is top 1 on the market
14 Apr, 2019 - 22:27
think that Bitfinex would be even bigger in 2019, the platform shows great numbers!
14 Apr, 2019 - 22:43
rn I'm just checkin the waters with Bitfinex to see if its worth trading regularly there, the impressions are rather positive for now
15 Apr, 2019 - 20:29
I can see why Bitfinex remains one of the strongest platforms now, the effort that went into reaching such a position was immense
15 Apr, 2019 - 22:04
Steps into future are made by Bitfinex and TRON, hope that the partnership has only began earnig people’s admiration
19 Apr, 2019 - 00:19
After reading all the reviews I decided to stop on Bitfinex and don’t regret it. It truly runs well.
