The project believes that the deleted accounts belonged to users who tried to deceive the system
Ethereum Optimism’s scaling solution has reduced the number of wallets that are eligible to participate in the upcoming free cryptocurrency giveaway. The project removed 17 thousand addresses that belonged to users who tried to deceive the system.
Some traders, in anticipation of airdrop, create many wallets in the hope of getting a large number of new tokens. Optimism said that altcoins, which were supposed to be distributed among remote addresses, will be redistributed among the remaining wallets.
At the end of April, the project announced the distribution of tokens, in which 250 thousand addresses will be able to take part. Initially, 5% of the altcoin emission will be distributed, another 14% will be distributed during the upcoming airdrops. It is assumed that the distribution will take place at the end of May or in June.
