  • KuCoin added LimeWire (LMWR) to Burning Drop.
  • $LMWR public sale raises $17.5M nearing close.
  • LimeWire added XRP, ADA & DOGE for payments.

The legendary file-sharing service LimeWire recently launched a native token for its ecosystem. Known in the early days of the internet for P2P file sharing, LimeWire transitioned to a social hub once it was revived by brothers Paul and Julian Zehetmayr, who revived LimeWire for a second life in Web3.

Indeed, the public Limewire token (LMWR) sale engaged a lot of crypto aficionados, who voted on Twitter polls to get their favorite cryptocurrency included in $LMWR token’s public sale. As the public sale counts its last minutes, the revitalized file-sharing client’s native token sale has already raised $17,459,825 million.

KuCoin Jumps on the LMWR Hype with Upcoming Airdrop

As crypto traders pick up bags of $LMWR and share screenshots on Crypto Twitter, the users of KuCoin, the third largest cryptocurrency exchange, are in for a treat. Recently, KuCoin made an announcement about the upcoming $LMWR airdrop, which also serves as a burn initiative.


KuCoin will put LimeWire (LMWR) in the Burning Drop section at 10:00:00 on May 11, 2023 (UTC). During the activity, crypto investors can stake Tether (USDT), KuCoin’s native $KCS, or Ethereum (ETH) to be eligible for a tiered $LMWR airdrop. Besides, investors can participate in the burning acceleration part and burn POL tokens to mint more $LMWR airdrops.

Ultimately, this $LMWR airdrop will allocate 500,000 $LMWR tokens to KuCoin’s eligible users.

On The Flipside

  • LimeWire’s founder Mark Gorton previously stated that he’s “not thrilled” about the original company’s imagery and name being used for the NFT marketplace.
  • The $LMWR public sale has caused an immense backlash on Twitter, as numerous investors call the sale “too greedy” and ask the execs of LimeWire to return the money.
