1/ Hiya Evmosians, it’s with a heavy coronary heart that we announce that we are going to want an extra couple of days to ensure a clean launch for the community.

Based on an official assertion from the Evmos group, the variety of tokens being airdropped to the neighborhood can be elevated by an extra 20 million tokens, bringing the whole allocation to its “rektdrop” to 100 million tokens.
With 20 million tokens already allotted to the neighborhood pool, a complete of 60% of genesis tokens can be distributed to the Evmos neighborhood. This makes Evmos one of the vital broadly distributed and decentralized Layer-1 EVMs.
“Word that the genesis provide of 200 million tokens won’t change—the allocation in the direction of the strategic fund has been decreased to 40%,” the Evmos group said earlier in the present day. “Rewarding a proactive neighborhood is one of the simplest ways to allocate these funds on the finish of the day.”
The transfer was broadly celebrated each by the Evmos neighborhood and the broader Cosmos ecosystem. Evmos’ rektdrop is a genesis airdrop for its native EVMOS token, aimed to reward lively individuals of the Comos ecosystem. It was additionally designed to offer “reparations” to customers that participated within the Ethereum and Cosmos ecosystem and ended up shedding cash—by excessive charges, rug pulls, and exploits that occurred all through final 12 months.
Apart from its beneficiant reward system, the broader Cosmos neighborhood has celebrated the launch of Evmos because it was set to carry much-needed EVM compatibility to Cosmos. When launched, it’ll allow all EVM-based tokens, NFTs, and dApps to be bridged to Cosmos.
Which means that all EVM chains, together with Avalanche (AVAX), Fantom (FTM), and Concord (ONE), will have the ability to connect with the Cosmos ecosystem.
That includes a abstract of crucial day by day tales on this planet of crypto, DeFi, NFTs and extra.
