It is worth noting that the remaining 8 billion stellar coins will become part of the Stellar Enterprise Fund, which will be used directly to invest in or acquire companies that “help the stellar ecosystem”.

The blog post also mentioned that the SDF Foundation did not completely abandon the airdrop strategy, and the foundation will still allocate 4 billion stars through market cooperation.

In September of this year, SDF announced that it will airdrop 2 million stellar coins through the messaging application Keybase, which is an airdrop project that the Foundation may continue to carry out.
