Coinbase distributes OMG airdrop, three years later
Long term Ether holders on Coinbase are set to receive a gift from the exchange in the form of OMG tokens, a recent email to Coinbase customers revealed. Back on July 7, 2017, OmiseGo airdropped its tokens to Ethereum holders but Coinbase withheld the tokens as they did not support the token at the time.
Just days ago, on May 15th, 2020, Coinbase announced they will offer trading support to OMG tokens on its iOS and Android app, setting off a 40% gain in price. Coinbase is now distributing the OMG airdropped tokens to the long term ETH investors accounts if you had ETH at the time of the airdrop.
“Because you had ETH on Coinbase at the time of the original airdrop, you are receiving OMG. No action is needed on your part. All eligible tokens have already been credited to your Coinbase account.”- Coinbase email to customers reads.
