ODEM Publishes Innovative Airdropper Contract for Token Bounty Distribution

Chiasso, Switzerland – April 11, 2018 – ODEM, creator of the world’s first On-Demand Education Marketplace, said it published a new type of airdropper contract for the distribution of more than one million bounty tokens.

ODEM’s development of the new airdropper solution saves time and money while also allowing token recipients to confirm their tokens’ pre-published origin addresses. The contract allows for the bulk distribution of ODEM Tokens to participants in the company’s bounty and rewards programs. The ODEM airdropper contract reduces the number of Ethereum transactions and fees associated with sending the tokens to users.

The airdropper contract, available for view now at GitHub, contains a self-destruct function that reduces its load on the Ethereum network and limits the transaction vulnerability. ODEM is excited to share the open-source solution with the developer community.

“We’ve broken new ground by working around the previously laborious-and- expensive task of distributing cryptocurrency bounty rewards,” says Richard Maaghul, ODEM’s chief executive officer. “We really hope other crypto companies will get a lot of value from our breakthrough.”
