Meaning of "Whale cap $500k"? if you had $501k you get nothing?


What exactly does it mean by “aUST whale cap of $500k”? so if someone held, $500,100 of aUST they will get 0 airdrop? or any balance above $500k will be deemed as $500k.

No, the ‘cap’ in crypto until now has always meant that anything over 500K doesn’t get additional airdrops. So 500K = 30M, but 10K << 500K.

It is quite well explained here: Further Information on The Spark Token Distribution (
If you would like to see some examples, you can also google Juno whale cap Cosmos // Osmo whale cap cosmos. Osmo should be better because Juno has too many posts about the CCN debacle.

Yeah thats why I’m asking in their most recent Medium post, it says people who have “Less than $500k aUST” is only eligible.

Thanks but i think you are wrong in this case. See their latest Medium Post:

## At the Pre-Attack snapshot, hold:

** LUNA (including staking derivatives)*
** Less than 500k aUST (UST deposited in Anchor)*

If true, this makes easier for UST whales to make legal action against them.

no, it’s a cap, meaning the first 500k only get’s a portion the v2. min(balance, 500k)

correct, it is a cap

It states that is aUST. When i was staking Ust on anchor i got aUST in my wallet Which had a higher price. So about 650k ust became 500k aUST. So the cap is about 650k ust staked or what?

Thanks I was curious about this too after reading for way too long on Twitter. I bet it’s hard for them to make everything clear but I’m still confused haha.

My guess would be they would drip the whales $500,000 over the 2 years rather than the %30 airdrop tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what happens it’s only a few hours away!

I’m brand new to crypto but couldn’t resist buying LUNA at the low price because I believe in it’s future. Good luck everyone and whales need to celebrate too!
