Binance.US has recently completed the distribution of the Flare (FLR) token airdrop to eligible XRP holders. The airdrop was distributed yesterday, October 25, 2023, at 10 a.m. (EDT).
“We’re thrilled to announce that Binance.US has completed the long-awaited Flare (FLR) airdrop. Eligible XRP holders can view their FLR balance by visiting their Wallet,” announced Binance.US.
XRP holders who were eligible for the airdrop can now check their FLR balance by accessing their Wallet on the Binance.US platform.
Details of the Binance.US Distribution
To qualify, users had to hold a minimum of 10 XRP in their Binance.US account during the December 12, 2020, snapshot. The exchange has set the distribution rate at 0.1511 FLR for every XRP held.
After a two-year anticipation, the distribution has brought some excitement within the community. Binance.US confirms that they distributed 15% of the claimable FLR tokens to each eligible user. Despite the airdrop, Binance.US doesn’t currently support FLR deposits and trading.
“Binance.US has yet to determine whether it will support the buying, selling, or trading of FLR on our platform. Supporting this airdrop does not guarantee the listing of FLR on Binance.US,” the exchange clarified.

Background on Flare Airdrop
Earlier this year, the FLR token airdrop distribution began. The first beneficiaries were primarily XRP holders captured in the December 12 snapshot. Renowned exchanges such as OKX, Kraken, Binance, UpBit, and KuCoin received the first distribution of 4.279 billion FLR tokens.
Directed by the Flare Network team, these exchanges then allocated the FLR airdrop to qualifying XRP holders. Binance.US now joins the ranks of exchanges completing this distribution.
