Blur Releases Its Highly Anticipated Airdrop, But US Users Can’t Receive It! 

Recently, new and uprising NFT marketplace Blur finally released its highly anticipated airdrop for its platform’s native $BLUR tokens. However, despite the initial excitement for its free airdrops, the marketplace also caused quite a stir within the community.

$BLUR Airdrop

With the Blur marketplace being considered to be one of OpenSea’s top competitors at the moment, many users had been excitedly awaiting their $BLUR airdrops for the past few months since it was first teased.

The platform has since announced that users will have up to 60 days to claim their airdropped BLUR tokens, which is now currently trading at a price of $0.75 at the time of writing, according to CoinGecko.

It’s reported that one of the top traders was even able to receive more than $1.9 million worth of the $BLUR tokens.

Criticism From US-Based Users

Despite this, however, the NFT marketplace received a considerable amount of backlash from certain users after a catch on the airdrop was revealed after its release — that the airdrop feature had been geo-blocked in the United States.

Many users based in the United States were shocked and disappointed to see that they were unable to claim their tokens due to regulatory uncertainty.

Although a lot of users were able to get through this issue through the use of VPNs, it raised the question among the community on whether Blur had ‘misled’ consumers by never stating that they would not be able to claim if they were based in the US.
