Bitcore FAQ

The future is now!
Airdrop & Claiming 6 questions
  • I did not receive my airdrop on my registered address – What’s going on?

    If you did not receive the full amount you expected for the airdrop it usually means some of your coins in your wallet are stored on an unregistered address. This can happen when you create a transaction: The wallet software automatically creates a new change address which is not fully visible when using normal settings.

    Please read our Advanced Coin Control Guide to prevent this issue in the future (for Bitcore Core / Bitcore-QT wallet).

    When using Coinomi wallet please make sure to disable automatic address generation in the settings.

  • What is the difference between claiming and airdrops?

    Airdrops are available for everyone that has at least 1.0 BTX in a registered Bitcore address. The airdrops happens every Monday, the snapshot is taken between 0:00 am and 24:00 Berlin time. Make sure to have your funds in your wallet during that time frame.
    To be sure you will receive the airdrop don’t move your coins until after you’ve received your airdrop. An announcement will be made in the bitcointalk forum, if the snapshot for the current airdrop is done.

    Claiming refers to our hybrid fork, that allows everyone that held Bitcoin at the time of the snapshot (BTC block #492820) to claim his BTX.

  • What does claiming mean?

    In order to allow a widespread adoption of Bitcore, we opted for the hybrid-fork model, allowing all BTC holders at the time of the snapshot at the 2nd of November 2017 to receive BTX proportional to their BTC holdings at the time.
    If you held BTC at block #492820 of the Bitcoin blockchain and can access your private keys, you automatically received 0.5 BTX per 1.0 BTC at the same address.
    For more information please read this article, explaining how to safely access your Bitcore funds. Bitcore claiming for Bitcoin holders

  • Can I get FREE Bitcore?

    Chances are that you already own Bitcore without even knowing it.

    If you had Bitcoin on the 2nd of November 2017 AND owned the private keys, you already have FREE Bitcore. You can just claim them. There is no time limit on the claiming period; This lasts forever!

    If you already bought or claimed your Bitcore and you own a minimum of 1 BTX, you can register for the Airdrop to get FREE Bitcore.
