After first announcing our support for the Flare (FLR) token distribution event on December 11, 2020We are pleased to announce that eligible XRP token holders will start receiving FLR on January 10, 2023.

The snapshot of XRP balances took place on December 12, 2020 at approximately 12 am UTC (the first validated XRP ledger with a timestamp greater than or equal to 00:00 UTC on December 12, 2020).

Kraken accounts that had a balance of XRP at the time of the snapshot are expected to receive approximately 15% of the total FLR they are eligible for on January 10, 2023 after the completion of the Token Distribution Event. At that time, eligible clients will receive 0.151095 FLR for every 1.0000 XRP they held on Kraken at the time of the snapshot. The method of distribution of the rest of the FLR tokens depends on the result of the community vote on Flare improvement proposal 01 (FIP.01). Voting on this proposal is expected to begin in February.

What is Flare?

Flare is a Layer 1 blockchain based on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) that focuses on creating deeper interoperability between different blockchains and decentralized applications. Flare offers FAssets and the LayerCake protocol to open up more blockchains to the power of smart contracts and unite assets through smart contract-enabled networks. Flare’s native token, called Flare (FLR), can be used as collateral within applications, to provide data feeds, and to vote on changes to the network.

Will Kraken make more assets available?

Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch, including the assets we’re considering. All available Kraken tokens can be found here, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our customer engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about what assets we may make available in the future.

Operate with caution

There is no guarantee that a limit order will be executed. There is also no guarantee that a market order will be executed at a certain price. The availability and liquidity of the particular digital asset will affect these types of orders.
