The CEO of Tron and BitTorrent, Justin Sun has assured BitTorrent token (BTT) investors that unprocessed orders will be compensated.

The BTT token sale took place on Monday, January 28 and it lasted for just 15 minutes due to high demand. As a result, the circumstances have led to some orders not being processed.
Sun has now revealed that his company will compensate those affected by the situation. He stated that the Tron Foundation has partnered with BitTorrent and Binance to launch a small airdrop for those who orders were not completed.
The CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao meanwhile revealed that all order requests on the Binance Launchpad for the purchase of the tokens were preserved. This means that the Binance team has the record of all those who attempted to purchase the token but failed to do so due to system overload.
Order of requests was preserved. It should have finished in a few seconds (far less than 18s actually), the server glitch just delayed the results. So, no need to redo. We should have set the upper limit lower so that more can get some. Mislead by all the "bear" cries… https://t.co/RSnQnZNLdx
