Thank you for your continued support of OmiseGO. The OMG airdrop completed successfully on September 24th. In total, it took 5242 transactions across 36090 blocks to send 7,012,269.91226 OMG to over 460,000 people.

There have been numerous requests from the community to make the airdrop code available. We would love to share the code with the public and to the many token projects to come, and we hope that this code will be useful for uniting the Ethereum community and spreading value within it.

The OMG airdrop was itself a true community effort; many parties contributed to making it happen. We would like to express our appreciation to Vitalik Buterin for writing and adapting the original ‘many-send’ contract, Gavin Wood for providing an efficient method for obtaining the Ethereum addresses, Martin Becze and Kumavis for scraping the needed addresses, Frederico Araujo for putting necessary infrastructure in place, Bitcoin Suisse for handling custody of the airdrop funds, Philip Daian and Karl Floersch for conducting the third-party contract audits, and Paweł Bylica for his contribution to develop the final contract itself.

Full instructions and details about the code can be found in the README.md file in the omisego/airdrop repository. It is important to note that the airdrop scripts were created specifically for the OMG airdrop and will require careful analysis and modification if the code is to be used for other token airdrops.

We are honored to release this code to the community and hope it can be used to further the Ethereum ecosystem.
