Where will my FLR be airdropped to?


Recommended Posts

I did the FLR thingy a while back, and when I check my XRP address on XRPSCAN it shows how many FLR I'll be getting. Where will these be airdropped to though? The address shown on XRPSCAN is my ETH address (of which I've got ETH in), so will they exist in the cloud as such until there is a FLR option on my Nano Ledger? (Or spark or whatever it is?)

Your gifted FLR will be "dropped" to your account on the Flare Network.

To buy your new Lambo:

  1. Get an account with an exchange supporting FLR
  2. Deposit a Lambo's worth amount to that exchange
    (I'm using Metamask plugin to my Chrome browser)
  3. Trade your FLR at that exchange for fiat
  4. Wire the fiat to your bank account
  5. Write check on your bank account for new Lambo

Enjoy the ride :)

I understood steps 3 to 5!

So do I have an account on the Flare Network already then? Or will this be setup automatically when it all goes live? Feel free to point me in the right direction for reading up on this rather than answering!

You don't have an account yet because the network is not live, but we could say that you have an account prepared for you that will go live with the network. A Flare wallet is being developed as we speak, I imagine we will see the details of it all before the launch. My guess is that it will be a browser based wallet or something like that. We are still waiting for more information about how it will work. In any case, you have FLR claimed, it is linked to the wallet you set it up on.

Flare uses the same address system as Ethereum. If you've got the recovery phrase or secret key for that Ethereum wallet that you entered, it will work for the same address on Flare. It's like having the same street address but in two totally different cities (Ethereumville and Flaretown). So your FLR will be deposited into that address, but on the Flare Network, not Ethereum.

I know that MetaMask already allows you to connect to different networks - it's an option up near the top of the wallet. I'm pretty sure somebody will be coming out with a dedicated Flare wallet before launch. You'll be able to import your Ethereum keys into one of those to gain access to your wallet on the Flare Network.

I believe brian's comment above would have cleared this up, but a fairly easy to understand analogy is as follows:

Your house has a front and back door, both are completely separate and unique doors, however access is granted via the same key.

Flare uses the same cryptography to generate keypairs as Eth, so your private/secret key for Eth will generate the same public address on the Flare network as it does on the Eth network.
