The airdrop will be split into three parts, with different terms of participating in each one. To take part in the first airdrop, traders need to invite friends and provide them with their personal links to let them register on Poloniex. Those who bring in new users will be able join the airdrop of $2,000 in BAD. The maximum reward for one trader is $20 worth of BAD.

Shibarium transaction count keeps growing

According to the Puppyscan explorer, Puppynet (the name for the Shibarium beta launched on March 11) has seen stable and fast growth in its transaction count. Shibarium users have added one million transactions literally within three days.

The aforementioned metric now reads 32,546,986 — that is another half-million rise over the past few days. The overall amount of blocks mined on Puppynet equals 1,854,453.

Shibarium rejects BAD listing offer from ill-famed exchange

A week ago, the marketing expert of Shiba Inu, Lucie, wrote a post that a certain exchange had offered the SHIB team to list BAD.

However, the offer was rejected since, about a year ago, the crypto trading platform had short-changed BONE users and did not allow them to withdraw their crypto. This exchange is Biconomy, according to a report.

Biconomy is based in Canada, and it was launched in 2017, the year when Bitcoin hit the $20,000 level for the first time. The platform launched a "BONE listing celebration" in July 2022 with a trading competition and prizes.

One loyal SHIB fan named MaximousDarwin on Twitter moved all his BONE stashes there, from his MetaMask wallet and MEXC exchange. After trading for a few days, Biconomy had a temporary problem with withdrawals. When the user noticed signs of a possible rug pull, he decided to move his BONE completely off that exchange; however, he had to pay extremely high fees for that ultimately.

The admins of the SHIB Telegram channel, who were contacted by Biconomy about the BAD listing, were aware of that story, and they turned the offer down. Lucie stated that their goal was not just to get BAD listed everywhere and pump their bags but to protect Shibarium users and investors.
