I have read the Cryptocurrency page on HMRC but im still not sure. I signed up to a newsletter in 2018 to follow the project, there was NO mention we would receive something. A year later they announced they would airdrop to those following the project early on. The airdrop was locked into a Coinlist account in 2019 with 0 value as it was not publicly tradeable/project not released. It started trading in 2020 and airdrop is unlocked 1/12 every month. Does this count under CGT only or its still Income Tax? Thanks
