Ignis (IGNIS) is the first child chain of the new Ardor blockchain platform which will become operational at 12:00 AM UTC, on 1/1/2018.
500 Million IGNIS tokens will be distributed as an airdrop to Nxt (NXT) holders based on a snapshot of the Nxt bockchain on December 28th, 2017. The block height of the snapshot is 1636363.
If you have a Nxt (NXT) balance on Bittrex during the December 28, 2017 snapshot, you will be additionally credited the equivalent amount of Ignis airdrop tokens on a 1:0.5 basis. i.e. 1 NXT on Bittrex held during the on-exchange snapshot will get you 0.5 IGNIS airdrop tokens. NXT held on orders will also be credited. Only the NXT held on your account is eligible for IGNIS airdrop tokens.
Bittrex will make all reasonable attempts to credit our users IGNIS but until we have a fully supported wallet, we can neither guarantee tokens or consider creating a market. We will continue to monitor the state of the codebase and network.
Note: Bittrex will be closing our NXT wallet to deposits and withdrawals. Bittrex may temporarily stop trading the NXT token to take accurate snapshots of balances around block 1636363. If any NXT deposits you had sent to Bittrex are not settled (i.e. marked as pending) by 6:00 PM PT, on 12/27/2017 (2:00 AM on 12/28/2017 UTC), you may not be credited with IGNIS.
We would like to thank the Ignis team for working closely with us.
