Drinfeld observed that there were apparently two notions of $K$-theory torsor one might expect to associate to a Tate $R$-module, and that these should be equivalent. The purpose of the present note is to explain this equivalence as a direct consequence of the author’s delooping theorem and Drinfeld’s theorem that the first negative $K$-group vanishes Nisnevich locally.
