Dear Hippo community partners:
Regarding the airdrop form collection results on June 4, 2021, the total number of addresses submitted by 3 pm on June 3（UTC+8) was about 100,000, and the total number of addresses submitted by 3 pm on June 4th was about 220,000. That means that we collected over 120,000 addresses in one day，which is impossible.
Obviously, we had a malicious attack. After a team discussion and consulting with our friends in the hippo community we have decided to declare the results of the June 4th airdrop registrations on google forms as invalid. This will protect the interests of the vast majority of token holders and the Hippo’s long-term vitality. We will also suspend the airdrop for 48 hours.
Tomorrow, we will gather opinions from the community and adjust the airdrop plan to ensure fairness and openness going forward.
In addition, in the case that we encounter more and more bots going forward, the HIP airdrop activity may be terminated early and will commence the airdrop pool burn early.
Thank you for your concern and support for Hippo. Hippo has many surprises in store for you, so stay tuned!
