Introducing the Band Protocol (BAND) Token Sale on Binance Launchpad

2019-09-06 09:52

Fellow Binancians,

Binance is excited to announce the next project on Binance Launchpad - Band Protocol (BAND). The Band token sale will follow a lottery & airdrop format, with the recording of user BNB balances already having started at 2019/08/17 00:00 AM (UTC).

Please note that we have made the following change to the lottery rules for this session, as previously announced:

  • Binance will record user BNB balances for 30 days from 2019/08/17 00:00 AM (UTC) to 2019/09/16 00:00 AM (UTC). The final BNB holding amount for each user will be determined as the average of the 30 days, but using the Daily Average BNB Balance calculation previously announced here.

BAND Airdrop Details

For this Launchpad session, a pool of 631,800 BAND tokens (approx 300,000 USD) will be split and airdropped to all launchpad participants that do not have a winning ticket. 

The amount airdropped to each participant that does not have a winning ticket will be calculated as = (Number of non-winning tickets held by each non-winning participant / Total number of non-winning tickets across all non-winning participants) x Total Airdrop Pool. Please note that if you do have a winning ticket, you will not be eligible for the airdrop. 

Example: User A claimed 3 tickets but did not have a winning ticket. The total amount of tickets across all users that did not have a winning ticket is 400,000 tickets. In this scenario, User A will receive an airdrop of 4.7385 BAND (631,800 BAND / 400,000 X 3).
