Yesterday Justin Sun took to twitter to announce the long awaited airdrop for TRX holders;

The release also warned about a number of fake social media accounts falsely claiming to be BitTorrent. A few hours later another tweet added that the planned process of 48 hours only took 4 and 10.8 billion tokens had been distributed;
