The Pyth Network (PYTH) team, which announced a retrospective airdrop for decentralised finance (DeFi) users cutting across 27 blockchains earlier this month, has expanded the offering to include more users.

According to an update, the highly anticipated airdrop will cover users of over 200 dApps on Ethereum, Polygon and Cosmos among others. Eligible DeFi participants have however expanded from 75,000 wallets to over 90,000 wallets.

The Pyth Network team says other than the airdrop now covering more DeFi users, there could be increased allocations for existing eligible wallets.

This comes as the platform increases the provisional allocation from the 200 million PYTH tokens previously announced to 255 million PYTH. The allocation includes an additional 55 million tokens added to what had been earmarked for DeFi participants.

Users can start the claim process for the retrospective airdrop when it opens on Monday, November 20 at 2pm UTC. Per an announcement from Pyth Network today, the claim process will remain open for 90 days. Users will then be able to access the airdrop claim page until February 18, 2024.
