Now that the new distribution methods are ready and proven, and we've added even more methods than originally planned, the March airdrop is cancelled.  November airdrop was the last one that paid to holders in proportion to their balances.

This is the list of the current distribution methods (in no particular order) that we'll continue to use and improve:

1. Cashback.

2. Verification rewards and referral rewards to those who verify their real name.  It is true that the referral system didn't work quite well for new users who have no Bytes yet, and we are going to introduce a new scheme which will allow to refer new users without sending them any Bytes.

3. Giveaways, such as those that Rafael does to his youtube subscribers.

4. Mass sending of textcoins to subscribers of our partners.  We have done two so far https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1heT6TUSpTJgRW-FUM0LbcoVjXZRCb3PbXQQLmzvNRvM/edit#gid=323859176 and will work on improving conversion in the future campaigns.

IMO this is very bad news. None of these methods are "proven" as you say, and they are all far more opaque than distributing to addresses with balances that can be checked on the networks.

How many dollar-equivalents have been spent in the cashback program so far? What's there been like 50 people send their passport to Juobi or whatever now? Youtube crypto scam videos? Really?

There are still 40% of coins to distribute, and now they are basically completely able to be distributed by shady backroom deals or not at all. There is no way to validate distribution beyond this point. So long and thanks for all the fish.
it seems the beginning of the End to Byteball, none of the distribution method mentioned above impress me

yeahhh... its not all that great, but i understand why they want to remove the full moon distribution
how about an exchange airdrop? Tron airdropped 500 coins to each Binance user in a deal with Binance. Perhaps Byteball can do something similar?

Ehh, cancelation of aitdrop, Have to re-evaluate my trades for Gbyte. Short-term bearish, Long-term Bullish  Embarrassed
it won't be bullish before it mature and the coin won't mature before it's fully distributed and decentralized i can see a very long way to a fully distributed fully decentralized mature Byteball by then many coins will come and go so it's very hard to predict a bullish Byteball for now.

Ahh bummer, was hoping to get another airdrop in March.  Guess I'll just have to hold for a few more months to a year.  No biggy

Glad to see the March airdrop was cancelled. There is still way too much uncertainty in how the remaining bytes will be distributed though. That's why the price is collapsing. Giving bytes away is not the only way to "acquire users". People can afford to buy $20 worth themselves to use the network.

You should really focus on listing on Fiat exchanges. I'd say you should distribute 50% of the remaining bytes to bytes holders as a one-time thing, save 25% for the project, and save 25% to give away. $2m for development is really not much compared to the $200m you're saying you will give away for free.

I fail to see the reason of some people's concern.

Funds are still distributed for free. Past has shown that target group of previous airdrops just dumps it. It's a natural choice to switch strategy.

Insanity: take 3 months, do nothing, schedule ‘tentative’ Airdrop, cancel just before due date.... via Twitter...

And people wonder what’s wrong with the marketing of this coin...

Can you believe this total absence of a visible resemblance of an actual plan? For people less versed in Byteball ‘s particular idea of ‘marketing’, this is a disaster.

Good thing is that Cryptopia has more days for my GBYTE to remain stuck  Grin

The problem is most people don't like investing in coins with ~40% of supply undistributed, makes people nervous. The moon drops provided certainty, now there is uncertainty ... how long will the remaining coins take to distribute, will everything be transparent, will there be any surprises that make people dump etc

Tony is a smart guy, and has done extremely well so far, so I'm still hopeful, but I'd have preferred ending distribution asap.

In defense of the airdrop getting cancelled, there was a disclaimer that this 'tentative' airdrop might be postponed or cancelled. So news of the shift to other distribution methods should not come as a surprise to anybody.
For existing byte holders, this should come as a positive news. The price invariably tanks after every distribution (which more than compensates for the free bytes they receive.)

The March Airdrop is canceled. Too bad. I still have not understood how the bytes should be distributed in the future? Bytes holder will not get anything in the future, at least not from Airdrops?

Haha, figures the airdrop would be cancelled, I *just* got the client running and figured out how to sign a message with my BTC private key so I could do the Transition Bot conversionation. My usual luck Cheesy

Tony should burn the remaining coins the same way Nano (railblocks) dev did. Thus, resulted to exponential increase in price.

Generally I agree to stop the Airdrops and using the rest of the resources better and more responsibly, but 40% left is really too much.

I think it would have been much better to do this one LAST Airdrop because it was announced on the website for a long time, although there was the possibility of cancelling it.

The new distribution methods don't impress me either.

This. Exactly this.

I am very disappointed about the cancellation. How can you have a countdown timer on your website for months and then cancel it two weeks before the event. Again Byteball seems to move in changing, contradicting directions on a weekly basis. Marketing and Investor relation wise this is a disaster.

Future will tell if the new distribution method will show success. I still think there are enough funds to do some variation of an airdrop event. It doesn't have to be 10%, but why not 1% or a smaller amount every month to holders of different cryptos to reach a wider community (e.g. March: Ether, April: Litecoin, May: Dash, ...)?

Burning coins is not good for future growth. It would be like saying this is the maximum of users we will ever have so we don't need more coins.

I believe distribution should not be entirely free. Deepoion is a good example of 'free' distribution where users have to actively show their engagement in the promotion of the coin to get their share.

Maybe a distribution way:
link your telegram account to the byteball website or byteball telegram group an you get a textlink with 10$ in byteball.
than the bytes are frozen (smart wallet) but you can perform jumio verification.
i think a code with fraud protection is easy to realize (number spam).

a other distribution way:
we puplish a contest, "the best idea for distribution ways" = the best idea win 10 GB (3 months period)
then we will find alltime the best way and the balls are in all mouth  Grin

When the dumping began back in the summer, a lot of people screamed to stop the airdrop, allocate it entirely to the dev and marketing fund or even burn the airdrop funds, now that it stops people are crying. Business as usual I guess. I'm happy tonych stopped the airdrop, it did not do any good for Byteball in the past 6months, lock it for long term dev/marketing/bounty fund, that will do much more good for the long term.
