How To Airgrab Your 5000 SOV Tokens

All EOS genesis accounts are eligible for 5000 SOV tokens which you must airgrab. How much is that worth? As of today, 5000 SOV tokens are worth about $50.

Here’s the SOV chart on
If you don’t airgrab your tokens, they will be burned and you won’t be able to get them later. No one knows the exact deadline, but it’s safe to say, you should airgrab them now so you don’t miss out.

What is SOV?

SOV is the first self-deflationary currency on EOS that also has locked contracts. The noob definition: SOV is kind of like Bitcoin because SOV will have a supply of 21 million, too. But SOV is different from Bitcoin because SOV is deflationary while Bitcoin is inflationary.

SOV started out with a supply 1 billion tokens, and then over time, will decrease in supply at regular intervals, dictated by math, until it reaches 21 million. And no more SOV can be printed after the supply reaches 21 million. The only way these rules could be changed is if the majority of Block Producers on EOS vote to change it. That’s why SOV is unique. It makes it basically immune from human interference. Read more on the SOV website:
