Digital Assets: Kraken Supports the Songbird (SGB) Airdrop for XRP Holders

Digital asset firm Kraken is pleased to confirm that they will be supporting the Songbird (SGB) token airdrop for XRP holders.

The airdrop’s snapshot of XRP balances was reportedly “taken on December 12, 2020, at ~00:00 (UTC).” Customer accounts  (spot and margin) that held XRP at this time have now “been credited with 0.1511 SGB for every 1 XRP held on the platform.”

Kraken points out that customers based in Japan aren’t eligible for this airdrop.

Regarding leveraged positions, if you held a leveraged long spot position via the snapshot, then you shall be “credited a balance of SGB corresponding to this position.”

And if you “held a leveraged short spot position through the snapshot, [they have] waived any negative SGB balances that may have arisen.”

As noted by Kraken, when funding is enabled, you may add SGB to your Kraken account by “navigating to Funding, selecting the asset, and hitting Deposit.” The Kraken team will provide more updates after funding and trading have commenced.

The SGB token serves as the network’s base currency, and may be used in the protocol’s governance.”

As covered recently, Kraken is pleased to confirm that their platform now supports TerraUSD (UST).
