The highly anticipated launch of Celestia’s mainnet is just around the corner, and it brings with it a flurry of activity in the cryptocurrency world.

Below are the key details of what to expect from Celestia’s mainnet launch, including an exciting airdrop and exchange listings.

Mainnet launch and exchange listings

Celestia, a modular blockchain network, is gearing up for the release of its mainnet, scheduled for October 31. This marks a significant milestone in the project’s development and introduces new opportunities for users and investors.

Centralized exchanges, including KuCoin and Bybit, have already announced their plans to begin trading Celestia’s native token, TIA, at around 10 a.m. EST on the day of the mainnet launch. The trading pairs will primarily involve the USDT stablecoin, providing users with a convenient way to access TIA tokens. 

Binance has also confirmed its intention to list TIA, with trading tentatively opening at 16:00 UTC.

Airdrop for active participants

One of the most exciting aspects of Celestia’s mainnet launch is the generous airdrop program.

The project has allocated 60 million TIA tokens to be distributed to various groups of active participants. These groups include users on Ethereum Layer 2s, stakers on Cosmos Hub and Osmosis, and developers within the broader crypto ecosystem.

It’s important to note that the snapshot for this airdrop was taken on January 1, 2023.

The airdrop accounts for 6% of the total TIA token supply, offering a valuable opportunity for those who have actively participated in the blockchain ecosystem.
