Ripple investors, details of Spark airdrop have arrived

According to Flare CEO Hugo Philion, the path to the much-anticipated airdrop of XRP investors is getting clearer. Philion said on Twitter that the company was working on upgrading the Songbird network prior to the Spark (FLR) airdrop:

Here’s the answer for anyone asking where their FLRs are. We are upgrading Songbird before the end of March 2022 with the last two protocols required before launching Flare. This will then allow us to continue launching Flare. A full roadmap for the launch of the flare will be announced in the coming weeks.

Flare Network aims to bring smart contract capabilities to various Blockchain networks, starting with the native FLR token, XRP, and then Litecoin (LTC). When Flare launches, the company says that every eligible hodler will receive 15% of its claimable Spark tokens, followed by an average of 3% per month, for a minimum of 25 months and a maximum of 34 months. Philion also shared that Flare is in touch with leading exchanges regarding the upcoming airdrop:

Regarding the FLR airdrop, we are in touch with the largest exchanges to determine and meet the token distribution conditions.
