We’ll never get our Sparks

Below I provided my dialog with Binance support:

what about sparks?
I mean should I expect them?

Can I know is this previous question or something else please ?

no, it is about Spark airdrop
I held XRP on December 2020

Kindly wait please, we will check and get back to you as soon as possible.

Upon checking, this airdrop of Spark tokens has not been sent yet, please follow our official announcements about this airdrop,
once we will distribute it, we will post official announcement here

Is there anything else I can assist you?

is there some planned date when we'll get some Sparks?

For now have to wait for the announcement since we don't have any planned date.

ok, thanks
