On October 19th, Aptos Foundation announced an APT airdrop for eligible end users. It is reported that in total, 20,076,150 $APT will be airdropped to 110,235 participants.
As the platform released an airdrop without a strict anti-Sybil attack, users received a huge number of APT tokens. APT saw extreme selling pressure, which caused the token to flash drop from $15 to $13. Large sell orders started a chain of active sells that gradually pushed the token’s price down to $7 at the time of publication.
