Loopring Wallet Red Packets
Red packets, or red envelopes, are a traditional Chinese gift-giving custom on special occasions, celebrations, and the Chinese New Year.

Except for now it can be Ethereum-based assets too!
Users of the Loopring Wallet have probably seen this feature on their mobile app in the past few weeks.

You can specify which token and how much to send, to how many people it is to be sent/split, and to whom. It is a great, easy way to spread some joy, to someone special, or an entire community.
You can send 3 types of red packets:

e.g.: I send a red packet for 1000 LRC, to be split among 10 recipients. You find one, open it up. You receive 83.5 LRC (random amount). You click share, which generates a new QR code for you, and you share it on Twitter. Someone opens it, it’s for 95 LRC (random amount). They receive 47.5 LRC, you receive 47.5 LRC....
