What you need to know about the FOX airdrop

Shapeshift has airdropped Fox tokens (FOX) to all eligible Shapeshift users. This article will explain how to claim FOX from your eligible Ethereum address in the FOX wallet in Exodus, how you can check if your Ethereum addresses are eligible, and an alternate method of claiming your FOX through MetaMask.

Please make sure you claim your FOX before October 14, 2021. All addresses have 90 days from July 16, 2021, to claim the tokens, and after that, the amount of FOX will decrease 10% from the original amount each day for 10 days. Any unclaimed tokens after that period will be returned to the ShapeShift DAO... never to return.
