In mid-April, news.Bitcoin.com reported John McAfee’s new privacy token called Ghost, as the former anti-virus tycoon detailed “governments will be unable to shut it down.” Ghost won’t be distributed in the usual fashion by leveraging an initial coin offering (ICO), as the project will instead utilize the airdrop process. In order to obtain the Ghost token, recipients will need to hold a specific ERC20 token called ESH. Today, Bitcoin.com’s cryptocurrency trading platform announced that ESH will now be listed, so users can obtain the token in order to participate in the Ghost airdrop or trade against it using Bitcoin.com’s powerful trading engine.
The Bitcoin.com Exchange continues to improve and add new features to the overall trading experience. Just recently, the trading platform announced the listing of the BTCSHORT token produced by Amun, which allows people to gain exposure to -1x the daily price performance of BTC. On Friday, May 22, 2020, the Bitcoin.com Exchange is adding the ESH token, a coin that was recently introduced for John McAffee’s decentralized exchange (dex).
Now Bitcoin.com Exchange clients can obtain ESH and use the tokens on McAfee’s dex or they can use Bitcoin.com’s trading platform to bet for or against the coin. Another option is for people to hold ESH, this is because ESH holders will be qualified to get some of the Ghost token supply during an Airdrop on May 25, 2020.
25% of the Ghost token supply will go to ESH holders based on a May 25, 2020, snapshot of the distributed ledger at 8 p.m. CST. Distribution for ESH holders will be 1:1, which means if you hold one ESH you are eligible for a single Ghost token. Ever since this airdrop was announced, the ESH token has been in high demand and the price has jumped 17,500% in a matter of days.
McAfee has said that the creation of the Ghost token helps fulfill his dream to make privacy-centric crypto transactions the new norm. Ghost was created to allow anyone in the world to trade across any borders on the web “without a trace.” To McAfee, BTC is limited by the publicly available hashes on the web, alongside the transactional history of coins and addresses.
“Ghost aims to bolster private transactions on the web, without sacrificing the ease of transacting,” explains the token’s creators.
For people who share McAfee’s vision of privacy, they may want to look into ESH and Ghost and can easily participate in the airdrop by leveraging ESH before the May 25 distribution period.
