ZK Community claims over 45% of airdropped ZK Tokens in a few hours

In this post:

  • zkSync’s anticipated ZK token airdrop coincides with the Binance listing, influencing the token’s price.
  • A few hours after the airdrop, over 45% of the ZK tokens had already been claimed.
  • ZK tokens price declined immediately after listing on Binance and other crypto exchanges.

Just two hours after ZK Nation airdropped the ZK tokens, over 225,000 addresses claimed their ZK tokens. The claims amounted to over 45% of the total airdropped ZK tokens. The zkSync network faced high traffic, slowing down transactions. 

The ZK community has been keenly waiting for the ZK airdrop. The network has increased in popularity over time, making crypto investors eager to invest in its native token. The ZK token airdrop synched with its listing on Binance. The largest crypto exchange platform listed the ZK token a few hours ago, with BTC, USDT, FDUSD, and TRY as available trading pairs.

ZK tokens airdrop experiences delays

The ZK community claimed over 45% of the ZK token airdrop just two hours after the airdrop. Through their X handle, ZK Nation announced that 225,000 addresses claimed their airdropped ZK token. The increased number of users on the network led to high server loads, which caused degraded performances on some RPC services.

ZkSync announced that their teams are working to increase the RPC capacities to allow a smooth process. At the same time, Binance exchange also gave an update on ZK tokens, claiming delays could be due to issues with Binance nodes. The exchange communicated that its tech team was working actively to ensure that everything worked properly before trading began.

“Update: $ZK deposits may face delays due to issues with our node.

Our tech team is fixing it urgently, and will be recovered before trading starts. Deposits will be credited once the block height catches up.

Successful deposits are secure. Please stay tuned.”
