@michaelx in telegram has hinted at an upcoming sharedrop to Bitshares holders as early as mid September, more details will follow in the coming days as to the project being launched and the sharedrop. To be eligible for the sharedrop users will need to hold their BTS in one of the supported Bitshares wallets (BitsharesDEX, OpenLedger, RuDEX ect..). Funds stored on a centralized exchange will be excluded from the sharedrop (because in reality the exchange owns your Bitshares; you, their customer just owns a promissory note).
