In 2017, the choice of cryptocurrencies was significantly more limited, and the portfolio of the popular Coinbase exchange also had fewer digital assets than it is today. After the cryptocurrency OmiseGo (OMG) was recently listed, there is now a surprise for all long-term holders of the digital currency ETH.
OmiseGo carried out an airdrop on ETH holders in 2017
To all Ethereum longterm investors, we have good news for you. Because everyone that had Ethereum in his Coinbase Wallet on July 7 in 2017 is now entitled to free OmiseGo tokens. Twitter-User @spencecoin, Chief Marketing Officer of wallet provider MyCrypto, was the first one to report the news. He contacted Coinbase customer service about the OmiseGo listing and received a very gratifying response:
On July 7, 2017, OmiseGo airdroped its tokens to ETH holders. Because Coinbase had not supported OMG at the time, the airdrop was not distributed to customers.
Coinbase started supporting OMG on May 21, 2020. Because you had ETH on Coinbase at the time of the original airdrop, you will receive OMG. You do not have to do anything, all tokens have been credited to your Coinbase account.

According to Coinbase, users who are entitled to the tokens do not have to do anything. The "airdrop" is carried out automatically.
OmiseGo price increase through Coinbase listing
The price of the cryptocurrency OmiseGo rose significantly as a result of the news about the Coinbase listing. It looks like positive news like this will once again affect a currency's course, as it did in 2017. For a short time, the price could even rise by 200% before recovering a bit. Currently, the price of an OMG token is quoted at $ 1,61. The enormous price increase is particularly good for everyone who now receives free OMG tokens from Coinbase.
