Stellar will be giving away 16 billion Lumens away for free - first for Bitcoin holders, followed by holders of Ripple.

This is the second time Stellar has given away free Lumens. Last October, Stellar gave away 19 billion Lumens for free to holders of Bitcoin.

On June 26, 2017, Stellar will take a snapshot of the blockchain to record coin balances for all Bitcoin accounts at that time. And then on June 27, 2017, Stellar will publish a Claims Page, allowing Bitcoin holders to verify they control a given Bitcoin address, and Stellar will send that address's share of Lumens to the provided Stellar account.

Stellar has also said they will give away free Lumens to any Ripple account holder with less than 7.5 million XRP. On June 27, 2017, Stellar will publish a Claims Page to walk through the process of claiming your free Lumens.

In a statement by Stellar:
If this is new to you, you may ask why are we doing this? When we were first designing Stellar, Bitcoin acted as a profound inspiration. The Bitcoin network was the first to show that it’s possible for a group of untrusted parties to agree on a common database, and the Bitcoin community still influences our understanding of this technology’s impact.
