Bitcoin Air is a bilateral dual-chain blockchain developed to deliver a means of indirect carbon emission reductions through decentralized, trust-less merchant/consumer interactions. Bitcoin Air plans to reduce carbon emissions through the development of a dual chain volatile/stable coin pair dedicated to creating the most versatile and scalable solution for merchant and consumer use. Merchants will be able to transact in cryptocurrency without the worry of profit loss due to fraud or technical issues within their conventional credit card processing equipment. Consumers will be able to transact in a multitude of ways including in person, over the web, or via AirCash Physical Currency!

Our Airdrop is a simple, and secure process. People can participate in claiming their Bitcoin Air rest assured that their Private Keys are secure and free from any online forms or submissions. Bitcoin Air utilizes a secure keyless claim that simply requires users to sign a message with their wallet instead of providing the private key. You will be prompted to sign a specific message to claim your Bitcoin Air come claim day, December 15th, 2018. Once you verify your Public Address and sign the provided message, you will be prompted to provide a Bitcoin Air Wallet Address to receive your allocated Bitcoin Air. Our script will then automatically process the transaction to your wallet in a prompt fashion.

Bitcoin Air is a bilateral merge fork between Bitcoin ($BTC) and Peercoin ($PPC). We are currently discussing if we would like to include Bitcoin Cash into the Airdrop as well!

Currently, we are in discussion with several exchanges in regards to them supporting our upcoming airdrop. For now, please just ensure that you hold all Peercoin or Bitcoin OFF-EXCHANGE to ensure that you receive our airdrop if exchanges do not support it! (IMPORTANT: If an exchange decides not to support the airdrop, the holders on that exchange will NEVER receive Bitcoin Air!)

We are in no way associated with the Peercoin Foundation, Peercoin Development Team, or Peercoin Community Team. We are our own separately funded and developed team that is pursuing completely separate use cases.

There are 3 ways you can get USDAP: 1. Be a merchant that accepts Bitcoin Air via payment protocol, and it will automatically be converted into USDAP when a payment is accepted to avoid volatility. 2. Burn your Bitcoin Air and mint USDAP within the wallet, which you can then burn back and mint into Bitcoin Air. You can also convert it into AirCash. 3. Receive AirCash ($USDAP) in person from another person and sweep it into your wallet. USDAP will not be sendable to each person. It will only be able to be minted/burned and then able to be exchanged via a paper fiat code called AirCash that can be swept into your wallet balance. It will not be available for purchase on exchanges

The official snapshot date for Bitcoin Holders will take place on Thanksgiving Day, November 22nd, 2018. The official snapshot date for Peercoin Holders will take place on December 1st, 2018.
