What Are Vested, Unvested, and Reserved Tokens?

  • Vested Tokens: Part of the total Airdrop which has been unlocked and transferred to the wallet.
  • Unvested Tokens: These are a part of reserved tokens which are pending vesting.
  • Reserved tokens: These are the total number of tokens reserved as an airdrop.

How many users will get Airdrop Tokens?

We welcome everyone to the ecosystem and want to distribute airdrop tokens to as many participants as possible. But since we have a limited supply of tokens available, airdrop tokens will be rewarded on a first come first serve basis, users who get their wallet activated and complete their KYC first will become eligible as long as we have tokens available in Airdrop Pool. Users who will have reserved tokens but fail to complete an engagement task in any specific week, their tokens get moved from their reserved tokens to Airdrop Pool, which will then be transferred to the next eligible participants as per the KYC list.
