I missed the 1 Million $CATS airdrop, am I too late?
I had the opportunity to be among the beneficiaries of the 1 Million $CATS airdrop but missed it out of negligence, or perhaps the proper terminology FOMO (whatever that means). I’m full of regrets and constantly tell myself “if only I had taken the leap of faith” I would have added an extra 3 BCH to my portfolio.
I got notified of the $Cats airdrop on twitter from a random whatsApp group but ignored it mostly because I thought it was one of the usual scam airdrops out there, plus there’s been a restriction from using twitter in my country which means I’d have to set up a virtual private network to access it, which is a hall of stress and may affect a lot of delicate apps on my device. Didn’t realize I had made a big mistake.
While scrolling through noise.cash, I came across @carisdaneym2's post where she mentioned how she got free 1 Million $CATS (the same airdrop which I had ignored), and explained it was equivalent to 0.3 BCH at the time. I got jealous at this moment and felt I had made a big mistake; I was willing to do anything for a taste of redemption.
Fortunately for me, @carisdaneym2 was willing to test a transaction on the smartchain by giving out 100 $CATS each to everyone who put down their smartBCH address in the comment section, lucky me! I did the smartBCH network setup, and added the $CATS contract address according to her instructions, after which I pasted my wallet address in the comment section.
I checked back about an hour later and I had 100 $cats on my Metamask, lucky me! Her instruction also contained the link to the twitter page in charge of the airdrop.
Since Cari’s instruction also contained the link to the official $CATS twitter page, I had to set up a VPN to access twitter (which was a lot of stress considering I had to be careful) followed the page and put on the notification in case of a new one. I also typed the words “please send me some $CATS” in the “Ben token finance” airdrop’s comment section and pasted my wallet address. Luck shined on me and I received a reply from the admin “sent”, checked my Metamask, I was given 51000 $CATS for free. Hooray!
28th of August and another airdrop came up on the cashcats official twitter page where we were asked to re-tweet and reply with our wallet address, winners were gonna be selected at random. All thanks to my twitter notification coming in at the right time I was the third person to reply with my address and got a 100,000 more cats.
Altogether I was able to get a total of 151100 $CATS all thanks to carisdaneym’s information and the twitter giveaway as seen in below screenshot.
At the time of receiving this airdrop, 1 Million $CAT was equivalent to 0.3 BCH as shown by Cari in her noise.cash update. But by the time of writing this article its value has increased drastically; 1 Million $CATS is now equivalent to 3 BCH while my 151100 $CATS is equivalent to 0.58 BCH as shown below.
While speaking to Cari on telegram about how I missed the initial CATS airdrop and bla bla, she sent me a $KITTEN contact address and asked me to add this to my token on smartBCH, doing this gave me 770000 $KITTEN, joined a random airdrop all thanks to my cousin @Temibiyi and got an extra 990000 $KITTENs, giving me a total of 1760000 $KITTEN with an equivalent of 0.05 BCH and rising fast.
Though I may have missed out on the initial airdrop, I wasn't too late. I fixed my mistake by being more active and got even more than my expectation. I got 151100 $CATS, 1760000 $KITTEN, and 20 PHA altogether.
I’ve got plans to convert some BCH to EBEN for staking on Benswap today, and will write about my progress as soon as I get into it.
