Wormhole Airdrops 617M W Tokens to Early Users

Wormhole, a cross-chain bridge, has launched an airdrop program rewarding early users with 617 million units of its newly issued governance token, W.

The coin debuted at $1.66 on the Solana-based decentralized exchange (DEX) OpenBook with a market capitalization of $2.70 billion and a fully diluted value of $15.03 billion, according to CoinGecko.

Several users reported that OpenBook was unreachable during a period of severe congestion that followed the token’s release.

The tokens that have been released account for 6% of the total supply; the remaining 12% have been distributed to core contributors, and the remaining 23.3% will go toward the foundation’s treasury.

The cryptocurrency was first introduced on Solana and will eventually be natively distributed on layer-2 networks like as Ethereum.

Token holders can delegate W tokens for governance voting. This delegation is possible on Solana or any compatible Ethereum-based chains, marking the “first ever” multichain governance system.
