CEO of the Stellar Devlopment Foundation Danelle Dixon remarked:
Our focus is a global financial inclusion using blockchain and other technologies, focusing on the unbanked, and so from our standpoint, what this kind of thing does as an airdrop, is it actually brings more attention to the ability for technologies like this to be able to effectuate nicely; cleanly and efficiently, cross-border transactions to help the unbanked and others out there in the world.
