    The Ethena Labs airdrop went live on April 2, distributing $450 million worth of ENA tokens among eligible wallets.

    The full airdrop allocation had been distributed by 7:17 am UTC on April 2, according to an X post by Ethena Labs.

    Ethena Labs launched its USDe synthetic dollar on the public mainnet on Feb. 19. It became the highest-earning decentralized application (DApp) in crypto on March 8 when it offered investors an annual percentage yield (APY) of 67%.

    Ethena’s USDe is currently offering a 35.4% yield to over 123,000 users, with a $1.6 billion total value locked (TVL), according to Ethena Labs’ homepage.

    The market cap of USDe rose 1.9% in the past week and 135% in the past month to $1.58 billion, according to DefiLlama data.

    The Ethena token was listed for farming on the Binance launch pool last week.

    There was widespread concern when a fake, copycat ENA token was exploited for $290,000 worth of BNB on March 29. On-chain security firm PeckShield mistook the fake token for the real ENA coin. The real Ethena token suffered no exploit.
