Air drops are really sweet because they’re, basically free crypto, that is given into your wallet and most of the time you have to do very little to actually get them apart from using the blockchain any way which you probably want to do so in this video. Really, i’m going to show you how to find the best potential airdrops and then how to get involved to potentially get some free crypto in your account just for participating in the community or using the application anyway. So just like most things in crypto, though there’s great rewards and also plenty of scams, so you need to make sure that you don’t get scammed and link your wallet up to some website. That’S gon na just drain all of your funds, so i’ll go through that later on in the video as well. Let’S get into it.
Firstly, this uh video is sponsored by my own crypto course. If you do want to check it out, there’s a hundred videos all about crypto from a to z, investing and day trading, crypto, plus all the different uh types of things that you would need to know in terms of doing your own research and getting into crypto. We have private discord groups as well. New content is added regularly over time for free for existing users check it out. If you want what is a crypto airdrop though so, essentially this is just when a project or a platform or community gives you free tokens for doing something else right, so uh binance have it as the distribution of crypto, either by virtue of holding a certain.
Other token, or by being an active wallet address what this means is essentially, let’s say you have a wallet and you have some ethereum in there. Another token may say that they will give some free tokens out to every ethereum holder, just as a promotional tool to say, hey we’re here and you might want to check us out. It’S free money, get some hype around the project and gets people knowing what the project is, which is worth millions. Businesses will pay millions tens of millions for marketing or they can do it via an airdrop as well, and we can benefit the other way is by using or having an active wallet address, which is basically like using the blockchain itself. So if you have a wallet like trust, wallet, meta mask other blockchain wallets and you use applications, then you will be in with a chance.
If there are any air drops so coming over to kind of different uh types of airdrop, there are different names for them, but they’re really all the same. It’S just essentially giving you free crypto for doing something. So a standard airdrop, just the transfer of a native coin or token. So this is a marketing strategy, saying everyone who has a wallet uh before this date will get airdropped some tokens for participating early on a bounty airdrop is when you engage in a promotional activity. So if the application says sign up for an account or do something specifically, you will in turn get some uh, some free crypto or maybe a free nft, or something like that.
Um a hoddler airdrop is when um, essentially one cryptocurrency is given to uh holders of another crypto, like i said so. If you have ethereum, maybe some meme coin is gon na, say: hey um, you know we’ll give every ethereum holder. You know five of our meme coin or anything like that. You have to be careful about that. Obviously, because a lot of scams with meme coins and everything so be really careful um.
The other way is um yeah. What like what happened recently with sos token um? Essentially, they said everyone that used openc can get sos dao tokens they’re not linked in any way, but sos obviously wanted to get a lot of marketing and hype, and basically they said everyone that used openc completely unrelated platform can sign up and get these free tokens. Why would anyone do that gets a lot of hype gets a lot of interest um in the project and also it actually pushes up the price of the tokens potentially as well, because lots of people who didn’t have the token or weren’t able to get the airdrop Actually want to get involved as well and start bidding up the price of the tokens. So there’s a lot of reasons why um air drops would happen.
These are just a few, and essentially you have to be involved in the blockchain or a community to be able to get them. So, apart from just using a blockchain and just getting lucky using an application early, we can actually see which projects may not have tokens. Now and then potentially use those blockchains and get involved early to get potential airdrops. How do we do that? There are some obviously websites and accounts that you may want to follow.
Defy airdrops is a good one. It’S just absolutely wall-to-wall potential airdrops. A lot of these are rumors and not actually happening right now, but our potentials in the future. So if you want to get ahead of the game you might want to, you know follow this account. There are many others, though you can see it’s basically water wall.
Air drops so what’s going on, but also really important is that they will show if an airdrop is you know, safe to claim or not. So sos was a big one and you can see yes, gas is safe to claim and trade. You know they’re reporting this they’re. Obviously, looking at the smart contracts and saying you know, is it scam or not so definitely uh interesting to get into looking at all the different potential airdrops? You know they’ve actually broken down the tokenomics of opendao, which was the sos token.
So if you really do want some more information just to get educated about this definitely d fight air drops is one. There are many others, though the next one is defy llama. So this is a website. They also have a twitter, so you can go and follow them, but basically um. This is kind of focused on d5, but these are tokenless protocols, as you can see, so these are absolutely kind of key protocols that may have an airdrop right, so any protocol.
That is quite big and being used. Um that doesn’t have a token yet is obviously a prime target to maybe have a token in the future. Obviously, they’ll want to raise funds or or do whatever, and maybe the early community um obviously get some air drops into their wallet. The way that you would obviously look at these. You know look at the amount of tvl on there, so obviously 1.
billion tvl is a pretty big protocol, see the chain that it’s on so you’ve got three in the top 10 that are terra network. So obviously, you know a lot of protocols looking to kind of get involved there. You can go click through see what the protocol is see if you might want to use it. Obviously, with these and d5 platforms, you’d probably have to use the actual application itself to get potential air drops. So that means getting involved.
You know lending out some crypto, maybe going through a swap or something like that. The next one is something like airdrops.io. This is kind of a bit easier to look for, so this is just you know. Latest airdrops and potential air drops there’s a lot of very um.
Smaller air drops on here, but definitely something to watch out for a lot of these are actually promotional materials as well. So not technically an air drop directly from a project, but there are different applications and different platforms that that could be um. You know doing some bonuses for signing up or something like that and they’ll actually drop some tokens into your wallet. 99 airdrops is another one same sort of theme. This again does focus a lot on giveaways and things like that, so just be careful, obviously make sure that they’re rated pretty high and that they’re from um you know a reputable source, but you know if you want avalanche tokens or something like that trust wallet tokens You know, potentially here um, to get involved and do some things.
Um. The other option is actually a lot of platforms. Um a lot of trading platforms actually have tons of airdrops. So what you’ll see is you know if you trade, a certain amount or if you deposit a token, they will actually give you some more free tokens, something like kucoin. They always do giveaways.
These aren’t strictly airdrops and obviously this is a centralized platform, but you can see a ton of different giveaways here. Um, you know, avalanche was um supported. If you go to nexo, there’s also tons of giveaways and they they have like a prize pool. If you deposit some tokens on there, so not technically airdrops, but a way to get some free crypto into your account uh, another website that i found is actually awesome. So this is um ernie, fi or ernie.
ire. So you can look at this website and what you can do is put your wallet address in here, and it will tell you if you have any unclaimed airdrops that should be claimed by that wallet address. So what you can do is put your ethereum binance smart chain or other evm address so um you can put you know if you’ve got a metamask just put your address in here and then it will show you. If you have unclaimed drops that you should be claiming um, so this is a free service. They do have a paid option as well, which gives you kind of more options.
You can have a look at it, but essentially it will tell you if your wallet has any potential air drops that you need to claim. So that’s crypto air drops but there’s obviously nft airdrops as well. These are actually becoming more popular. Certainly, if you sign up for something you can get an nft, but in the nft world, there’s tons of opportunities right. So if you do use a platform like openc and you’re part of a community, what i would suggest is obviously going to the community itself on twitter on disc, on discord.
However, they run their community. It’S probably going to be discord, so when you buy an nft that will often come with tons of future potential, airdrops giveaways and other bonuses, so board 8 yacht club. Do this, and essentially what board a yacht club are doing, is launching a token, and this is uh for certain now – the way that you would get the token obviously get an airdrop of the token is holding one of these nfts now. Obviously this is a very expensive example, but obviously there are tons of smaller communities out there. That will obviously launch tokens.
Nfts airdrop and fts board yacht club have done is actually created, mutant apes, so anyone that held an ape would have an nft, and then you could use that nft to create a mutant ape or obviously these air drops as well. So that’s one way, but then the token is another way. So if you have an nft and it’s a big enough community, then actually you launch a token as well. That token could potentially have a ton of value in the future. So obviously owning nfts has to be in your wallet and then that wallet can claim.
So this is definitely a huge area for air drops, but obviously you’re going to have to spend some money first and actually become part of the community. So a little bit different to d fire, which is probably on the cheaper side. So what the biggest potential air drops in 2022? Well, there are still a ton of extremely large projects that don’t have a token and potentially could and will some are nailed on. Some may happen or may not happen.
The first is open c. Open c got a lot of flack recently because they’ve, basically, you know been one of the biggest applications on any blockchain and they wanted to go through an ipo, so that is through the stock market. Obviously, everyone is not happy about that. Considering that everyone has paid tons in gas fees on the ethereum network, they’ve supported openc to become a huge company and they kind of deserve and expect some sort of airdrop. So this is one that could be happening.
The way that you’ll get involved with this one is obviously having to use open c. So if you’ve bought nfts on there, if you have traded or minted nfts, obviously you can have a much higher chance. Yes, there was the open, dow airdrop sos token, absolutely nothing to do with openc whatsoever. That was just a marketing exercise for that dow congrats to them they they got a lot of hype, but nothing to do with openc. The next one is metamask.
Metamask is obviously hotly anticipated. Obviously, one of the biggest names in crypto pretty much everyone that has self-custody of assets has a has a meta mask in some respect. If you’ve used metamask if you’ve linked up um blockchains to it, if you’ve used the swap feature on metamask, if you’ve paid gas fees on ethereum etc, you might be in store for an account um. Obviously, the earlier that you’ve had that account, the more likely it is, can in compare comparison to the amount of transactions that you’ve sent compared to everyone else. So definitely look out for these.
The next one is starkware a very early stage company on ethereum uh. That has scaling solutions. A lot of people are looking for a potential token for this one, no token right now there isn’t much um in the pipeline in terms of rumors for this one, but it is obviously a very big company and a lot of people are using this technology on Ethereum and ethereum is just a classic chain for air drops to the same end. Zk-Sync definitely is coming out with a token. If you go to their twitter, it says they don’t have a token yet so obviously this is implying that they will have a token and usually they will airdrop some tokens to very early users of the blockchain again with this one.
You have to use the blockchain. So you have to you know, open a wallet you can do that with metamask. Just link it up. This is a layer, 2 scaling solution for ethereum, so link up your metamask, then you’ll have to use the tools right, so you can mint an nft on the blockchain. That is really easy takes 5-10 minutes.
You can use the other options here and then you can use some applications that are built on zk sync, for example, zigzag exchange go to zigzag, exchange, use the you use the exchange trade, some ether for some usdt, or something like that back and forth. So you get some transactions and get a wallet. You could potentially get a big airdrop there. The other one is arbitram. Also optimism as well, but arbitram seems to be the biggest one.
Arbitram again is an ethereum scaling solution, no token. Yet people don’t know if there is going to be one um, but obviously you know if they have one, then they may definitely reward early users. You can go to the token bridge right here. You’Re gon na have to use their services, so you’ll have to use the token bridge. You’Ll have to bridge assets from ethereum over to layer.
Two um use it on other applications. So if you link up arbitrary to uniswop, you can use uniswap with arbitrom. You have to use the blockchain and you could potentially get some free, airdropped arbitrary tokens if they ever come. One thing you have to watch out for with airdrops is the amount of scams right. So if someone says that you should send the money, um and they’ll give you some back, that is obviously a scam they’re, never going to return that crypto.
The other is phishing scams where people can actually get you to link your wallet up with a fake website. Get your private key and then drain all of your money. So what i would suggest is, if you’re looking to get into marketing airdrops, that is sign up for an account, use this application and then get a reward. I would use a airdrop only wallet, so that is a separate wallet that you use just for airdrops. That has a little bit of crypto in there to pay for gas fees, but not much more.
Then, if they drain your wallet, you haven’t lost a ton of crypto. Obviously, if you’re using good services that will potentially air drop in the future, then that’s just a bonus and you have to worry about it too much, but one huge way that uh they will get. Your information is basically just air-dropping a random crypto into your account. So you’ll get a notification. You’Ll see this crypto in your account.
You’Re like oh wow. I’Ve actually got a crypto with some some value in here then. What they’ll do is basically try and get you onto a fake website and they will get you to try and trade out of that airdrop so swap using their decks. But what actually happens is that they just drain all of the money um through a smart contract out of your account. So if you have received – and you can see this on many different sites right so if you’ve received um some random crypto in your account – and you think what is that i’ve never used it, you know don’t go onto fake websites, always check the website itself.
Make sure it’s the official website and not a fake website that has a similar, url um and also, if you’ve got a free token. It’S obviously not going to be worth anything anyway. So what is the point, especially if they say that it’s worth like five? Ten thousand dollars, probably just a complete scam, so don’t go onto a fake website and get money drained out of your account, because that can happen. Crypto air drops are a good way to get some free cash, but you’re gon na have to do something.
First, either be part of a community or use an application anyway, and that’s when the biggest and best air drops come other than that. It’S really about bonuses for signing up or depositing crypto somewhere. So just be careful that you’re using the right site and trusted platforms. Overall, if in doubt, go to twitter first check the community check some of the airdrop accounts that can kind of verify this for you to see if it’s a scam or not, really just be careful with that, because it’s easy to lose crypto, you know nothing is For free most of the bonuses that you’ll get will be good for a little bit of crypto, but the big ones come with using the biggest applications and just kind of waiting for them. Uh also, you know, if you don’t know if you do want to know about crypto from a to z, investing in crypto and trading crypto as well.
