September users should also be rewarded

No users should be left out. This is the wish of the majority. The demand is to include all uniswap users before the official announcement. The cut off time should be the announcement time.

Till the official announcement of 400 $UNI AirDrop, noone knew about this. So, i believe not only users before Sept. 1 but also all users before the announcement should be rewarded and included in the 400 $UNI AirDrop.

No. This subject was already brought up in other threads. Spet 1st was chosen so Uniswap insiders couldnt go use Uniswap on 1000 wallets and centralize governance.

Sorry but doesnt make any sense, which insiders are you talking about? If a decision is made in favor of my proposal, will these “insiders” be able to change the past? Will they be able to create new wallets dated before Sept. 16 ? How??

Couldn’t supposed Uniswap insiders have known about the Sept 1st date and set up their “1000 wallets” in anticipation? The date should be the announcement.

They probably already did just in case such a proposal passed.

No. It was kept secret from all but a few. Thats why its fair.

That’s just like saying they probably already set up 1000 wallets in August just in case there was an airdrop.

So then it should have been kept secret that the date was the announcement.

Wrong. At some point Uniswap insiders would have to hear about the proposal to get it ready for release and distribution. Sept 1st was chosen for a very specific reason and Ill be voting no on any proposals to change the date.

You dont trust uniswap personnel and making baseless assumptions. Can you please try to be realistic a bit, please ?

Why are you all demanding more free stuff? There has been one airdrop already, there will be more mining in the future and lot of other coins, this is just ludicrous and we should stop commenting on these posts asking for more free tokens because there will be a flood of them.

As I said in the other post:

Now I just wanted to say my two cents:

The cutoff date is more than fair because if it was announced say 1 day before it was going to take the snapshot, only a group a people (could be a couple hundred, thousand, million idk) that understand crypto would abuse the hell out of the snapshot since there is no limits to the amount of accounts you create or the amount of private keys people can generate.

Keeping it random like this implies that no one else had a much better chance than you (now I know the devs could have told people, but I’m thinking of this in general with billions of people rather than just a couple of individuals). In the banking world, those with insider trading would be able to do way more (continue to buy until the date to sell) but here, they are limited to 400 UNI each.

I believe this is fair due to the fact that there has been so much time to use this protocol and, to be honest, this has way more risk like every other dex there is. If you had barely come to Uniswap, I can infer maybe 2 things. 1) you are new and that you barely stumbled upon Uniswap but still needed to research and understand what it is (DYOR). or 2) you have been here for awhile and have used other services until you stumbled upon Uniswap and either skipped it or barely missed the time.

If you missed the time, I feel sorry for you since yes you were the closest to getting the UNI but missed it. But couldn’t you say the same about people who didn’t purchase or missed the bottom. Asking to extend the date of the snapshot is like asking any asset to go back to their bottom so you can buy in.

I, personally, have been using crypto for less than a year and found uniswap in the spring-summer. As a new user, I saw the risk of putting my funds into something that I might not get anything back but still took it anyways. That is why my wallet received 400 UNI. And I didn’t expect anything from using this protocol and no one really should in crypto since this is where you are responsible for all you do here with no safety net.

You may disagree with me but that is fine but I don’t see how it’s suppose to be fair, could you offer a better way it could be fair without any abuse. Until then this is what I think about this.

You want to make it fair; just keep the airdrop secret and include all the previous swappers right before the date of announcement, this is the only way to make it fair.

It’s not really something that hard to understand.

Ok so how many people knew about the swap beforehand?

That’s the reason why all the previous users prior to the announcement should be rewarded.

Why it has been called September first and not the August 15th? Any reasoning?

What do you mean that’s the reason, I don’t understand? I don’t know why it on this specific day, enlighten me. Hell, why didn’t happen on the 5th of November, remember, remember?

It is definitely not fair to Uniswap users who sold their UNI at $1-5 because of uncertainty in the price, or for those who are buying at the current prices, for suddenly others getting free UNI which they can proceed to dump on loyal Uniswap holders at $8-10 dollars when they receive it, which I see very possible. As a Uniswap holder I feel less incentivized to keep my UNI or purchase more knowing that people will be receiving UNI at the prices we’ve helped maintain and will most likely plummet the price. I’m not really supportive of anymore Airdrops at all. People will keep coming up saying that for some reason it’s not fair they didn’t get free tokens. It will be very hard to keep everyone happy. If you want to get UNI, you would need to support the ecosystem in some way, like buying and holding your tokens, participating in governance and LP. I feel that would be the most fair approach.

Judging by the replies, people who claimed their UNI’s don’t care about the people who couldn’t.

And all they did was to use the platform couple of days earlier. Lmao, such a thing to get “conservative” about.

Classic case of selfishness and idiocracy here.
