XRP holders who participated in the Spark airdrop snapshot in December will receive a second airdrop, Flare Networks announced today.

Flare Plans New Airdrop For XRP Holders

Flare Networks has announced a new airdrop as it plans to launch a Canary Network called Songbird.

In an announcement, the team said it would airdrop Songbird’s native token SGB in the next six weeks.

Flare aims to bring Ethereum-based smart contracts to various non-EVM compatible networks like the XRP Ledger.

While the project is scheduled to go live in September 2021, the team is now planning to launch Songbird for security testing and experimentation, CEO and founder Hugo Phillon confirmed in a blog post.

Phillon described Songbird as an adversarial environment for live testing and bug discovery over the long term.

According to the team, Songbird will be critical in testing the network’s architecture along with core systems that include Time Series Oracle, the StateConnector, and F-Asset system.

Hugo further added that applications planned on Flare will be tested first on Songbird in an attempt to find and exploit bugs.

In December 2020, Flare Network announced its network token Spark would be airdropped to all XRP holders. The same XRP holders who participated in the snapshot will now receive SGB.

For every 1 XRP at the time of the snapshot, 0.1511 SGB tokens will be allocated.

Flare was incubated by Ripple’s startup accelerator program Xpring in November 2019. Besides XRP, it will support three other crypto assets: XLM, LTC, and DOGE.
