The Pastel team has decided to only support active addresses in the fork in order to remove uncertainties as to the supply of the new Pastel coin. ANI has been a defunct project for so long that many questions remain unanswered as to the actual, circulating supply of the coin.
Users holding ANI off the Cryptopia exchange in their own wallets will be required to send 1 ANI to a soon-to-be-announced, unspendable address in order to be eligible to participate in the fork. The Pastel team is actively working with Cryptopia to automatically handle this process for users currently holding their ANI on the exchange.
The Pastel coin will ultimately have a total supply of 21 billion coins and begin with 50% (10.5 billion) of those coins distributed. That 10.5 billion initial supply will be distributed to active ANI addresses in proportion to their ANI holdings.
We will be announcing the exact number of addresses eligible to participate and the anticipated ANI/Pastel distribution rate prior to the fork.
The Pastel token will initially be available for trade after the fork on the Cryptopia exchange. We will be adding additional exchange support in the coming months, especially in Asia.
