Planning to bring Ethereum-based smart contracts to non-EVM-compliant networks such as XRP Ledger, Flare announced that SGB, the token of Songbird, Flare’s canary network, was distributed to all addresses participating in the December airdrop. The team also announced that the Songbird network went live today.
As it will be remembered, in December 2020, Flare Network announced that the network token FLR would be distributed to accounts holding XRP. These people, whose screenshots were taken on December 12, are now entitled to SGB tokens. For every 1 XRP, users were airdropped of 0.1511 SGB tokens.

How can Airdrop participants receive SGB?
Participants in the FLR token airdrop held in December also received SGB tokens. Users holding their XRP on the exchange during the December snapshot will wait for the exchange to support this airdrop and have their tokens credited to their accounts. Exchanges are free to support the airdrop or not.
On the other hand, those who hold their XRP in a ‘non-custodial’ wallet can already check their SGB. For this, they need to go to xrpscan.com, search for XRP addresses, and click on the Flare tab in the “Assets” section. However, in a statement from Flare, it was stated that SGB tokens will not be visible in wallets until there is a public RPC to which the wallet will be linked. It was stated that guides on how to connect the wallet to an RPC will be published in the coming days.
Support from some exchanges
Meanwhile, cryptocurrency exchange Bitrue announced that it will list SGB on September 27. The exchange announced that until this date, it will reflect the SGBs that its users are entitled to in their accounts.
A statement came from Bitstamp, one of the major cryptocurrency exchanges. Bitstamp has announced that it will distribute SGB to all eligible users.
Songbird app on Ledger Live
For those using Ledger wallets, the Songbird application is available on Ledger Live as of today. Instructions on how to connect the Ledger wallet to the Songbird network are on Flare’s website (in English). published. There is also a guide on the site for connecting to Songbird with MetaMask.
Finally, the Flare network, which XRP investors have been waiting for a long time, has not yet been published. After the stress tests of all components of the Songbird ecosystem are successfully completed, the Flare network will also be activated. After that, it is expected that the qualifying FLRs will be reflected in the accounts.
