What is the Flare Network?

The Flare Network is a layer-1 blockchain that aims to connect everything, including off-chain data and other layer-1 blockchains, through their F-Asset, State Connector, and Layer Cake protocols.

Flare officially launched in observation mode in July 2022.

When Flare exited observation mode, 15% of the Flare (FLR) tokens were airdropped to those that registered their XRP address for the airdrop. The remaining 85% of the tokens will be proportionally allocated to accounts that hold Wrapped Flare (WFLR). Learn more here: How will the remaining FLR tokens be distributed?

To keep up-to-date with the Flare network, you can check out the official Flare network blog.


What is the difference between the Flare Network snapshot and launch?

The Flare Network snapshot occurred at 0:00 UTC on December 12, 2020.

The Flare (FLR) token distribution started on January 9th at 23:59 UTC.

Flare planned to distribute airdropped tokens in a 1:1.0073 ratio based on your XRP holdings in your XRP address at the time of the snapshot. To read the official announcement from Flare, please visit flare.xyz.


How did Exodus handle the Flare airdrop?

If you held XRP in your Exodus wallet during the snapshot and registered your XRP address before June 12, 2021, you were eligible for the FLR airdrop.

Flare wasn't supported in Exodus at the time of the airdrop. However, Exodus customers were provided access to their Flare airdrop private key to claim FLR in a wallet that supported it.

Now that Exodus supports FLR, you'll have a new and different private key that corresponds to your Flare address in Exodus.

Tokens will be distributed to accounts in 36 installments every 30 days.

The first distribution happened on March 17, 2023, and the last will occur on January 30, 2026. To learn more and to see all the distribution dates, visit Flare's website: FlareDrop guide.

If you have received an installment of distribution rewards, the tokens must be actively claimed within 67 days. Any tokens that are unclaimed after 67 days will be burned.
