The tokenomics revealed
It was previously noted that the lack of tokenomics was a major complaint against Blur. Unfortunately, there was a lack of it, which cast doubt on the legitimacy of the token and the process by which it was distributed. However, on 14 February, the tokenomics was made public and described the distribution schedule and methods in detail.
In addition, the tokenomics stated that contributors, advisors, investors, and the community at large would receive varying percentages of tokens.
Community scoops up the BLUR
In all, 360 million tokens were distributed, and as of this writing, over 303.3 million tokens have been claimed, according to statistics from Dune Analytics. The claimed tokens on the first day amounted to over 80% of the AirDrop.
Additionally, the dune data showed that 39.6% of recipients got 100- 1,000 tokens, while 35.8% got 1,000- 10,000 tokens. According to the statement on the Blur page, traders have 60 days to claim their AirDrop.
Seven addresses sold all the BLUR tokens they had claimed, while 15 of the top 20 recipients traded the token, according to a post by Lookonchain. On its first day of trading, the price of the token soared to more than $5. However, as of this writing, the price adjusted, and was trading at roughly $0.73, reflecting a gain of over 12% over the same trading time.

In addition, major exchanges and wallets, including Huobi, OKEx, and Coinbase, promised support for the coin before it launched.
The success of the token following its AirDrop remains to be seen. Additionally, it is still being determined if and how the token would affect trades on the Blur NFT marketplace.
