Important information about crypto airdrops
What are crypto airdrops?
Cryptocurrency airdrops or crypto airdrops is when a blockchain company (project) is giving away their tokens (usually) or coins for free. Now you can ask a question what is the difference between a token and a coin? And why they are giving them for free? When cryptocurrency is built on another blockchain, like Ethereum, NEO, or Stellar via smart contracts we have a token. They are giving them free usually because they have a new project and token airdrops are a great way to promote it and getting exposure. Airdrops are a great way to increase social network awareness of the blockchain project.
On our website, you can find plenty of new crypto airdrops. Our list is regularly updated.
In most cases to earn free crypto, you will need to do some social tasks. Usually, that means joining the official Telegram group or to follow the project on Twitter. In some cases, the blockchain project is asking to provide them your personal information, which is known as KYC (Know Your Customer). Every crypto airdrop that is asking for that kind of information is marked as HARD on our website, and we especially note that in the steps of how to get an airdrop.
Even today (January 2021), we are experiencing a high number of crypto airdrops, and we cannot deny that crypto airdrops are a continuous trend in cryptocurrencies. And with increasing popularity, all kinds of scammers saw their opportunity. We are trying to do our best to filter airdrops in our list, but sometimes that is impossible. If you see that some project is shady, please notify us via email. You can ask how it can be a scam if it is free? Well, it can take you time, and what is important it can take you private information and sell it. Always be very cautious with providing your personal information on the Internet.
Crypto airdrops can be divided into 3 groups:
- Bounty (regular or common) airdrops
- Holder airdrops
- Forked airdrops
Bounty (regular or common) airdropsMost common token airdrops today. To participate you will need to do some social tasks or register on the blockchain project website. The tasks are usually to join the Telegram group, follow the crypto project on Twitter, or register to the website.
Coinbase.com is an excellent example of excellent crypto airdrops. You will need to register on their website and do the KYC. It is safe to do the KYC with them, and it is important. Because, from the start of the cryptocurrency airdrop on their website you could earn up to several hundred dollars in the free crypto airdrop, which can be traded immediately, converted to Ethereum or Bitcoin, or transferred to fiat. That is why KYC is necessary and, of course, to prevent users from creating multiple accounts. Every now and then they are listing new crypto airdrops, and you will be informed when a new airdrop has started on our website.
Holder airdropsMost of these coin airdrops and blockchain projects are built on bigger and established blockchains like Ethereum (most common), Stellar, or NEO. In order to participate in these kinds of airdrops, you will need to hold that cryptocurrency and you will be dropped with the new one. To get cryptocurrency asset, you will need to buy cryptocurrency. Sometimes you will need to hold one cryptocurrency coin, like Bitcoin, in order to get a free crypto airdrop.
Forked airdropsWhen one blockchain is divided for some reason, and from that point of time we have two separate chains, we are talking about forks. In order to participate in these cryptocurrency airdrops, you will need to hold cryptos from the original chain and you will be dropped with the new crypto airdrop.
You can find holder and forkded airdrops here.
Why are crypto airdrops free?
The most common cause for organizing the cryptocurrency airdrops is before the ICO campaign. Crypto airdrops are great for gaining users on social media and raising awareness about the crypto project. Successful cryptocurrency airdrops can have a great impact on the success of the ICO (Initial Coin Offering).
Another good reason for organizing the crypto airdrops is to distribute tokens and coins among the users. Tokens and coins have to be used to gain some value. Crypto airdrops are an excellent way to distribute tokens and coins to the general public so that the tokes and coins can be used and transferred. It is very important for cryptocurrency tokens and coins are distributed and used. Crypto airdrops are an excellent way of solving this problem.
Safety tips for participating in token airdrops!
1. Never pay for crypto airdrops
If a blockchain project is asking you for money to participate in cryptocurrency airdrops, go away immediately. You will never see airdrop coins, and there is a good chance you will probably lose what you have.
2. Never share your private key
This is mentioned several times now, but it is worth mentioning it again. Never share your private key with anyone.
3. Create a new dedicated email address
Create a new email address that you will use only for the crypto airdrops. Do not forget to set a different password to it. The best practice will be to have different aliases emails for different websites, for example, [email protected] But for this, you will need to have your own domain and to forward all emails from a domain (that are not real email accounts) to a real email that you use.
4. Never give your private email
Never use your private email for participation in crypto airdrops. If you doubt project legitimacy, do not even share your real name.
5. Never use the same password for different account
You should apply this rule regardless of participation in the crypto airdrops. The best practice is to use one of the good password manager applications.
6. If you have doubts about project legitimacy avoid KYC airdrops
If you have any doubts about blockchain project legitimacy avoid passing the KYC (it stands for the Know Your Customer). It is up to you if you want to share your personal information and participate in the cryptocurrency airdrops.
7. Create a new Ethereum address that you will use only for the cryptocurrency airdrops
Even if the scammers cannot do you harm if you submit your primary address (if you even have one), they can see your past transactions, and perhaps you can be the future target. It is best to create a new Ethereum address that you will use only for the airdrops.
How to participate in the crypto airdrops?
First, it is important to remember to never give the private key to anyone. And if somebody tells you that you will get free crypto airdrops tokens if you provide them private key, go away because that is a scam for sure. Now when that is clear, for the crypto airdrops in most cases you will need an email address. Sometimes you will need to register to the crypto airdrops sites, or complete social tasks (remember cryptocurrency airdrops are promotions). Now the most popular blockchain projects are built on Ethereum, and for those crypto airdrops, you will need an Ethereum address. That is a public address because remember, you never give your private key to anyone. You can create an Ethereum address here: www.myetherwallet.com. Sometimes you will need to have the tokens in your wallet to get crypto airdrops.
If some project is asking you to firstly buy their tokens to participate in the crypto airdrops be sure that the project is very shady. We do not promote that kind of airdrops on AirdropsMob. The only difference is legit and holder airdrops, which are a legitimate way of organizing and providing cryptocurrency airdrops.
You will need to have social media accounts to participate in the crypto airdrops. Telegram and Twitter are a must-have. In most cases, you will also need Facebook, LinkedIn, and Reddit accounts. And rarely you will need to have Instagram and Medium accounts. You mustn't use fake accounts. Blockchain projects are giving you free tokens and they are organizing cryptocurrency airdrops for raising awareness of their project and they are expecting real users behind those social media accounts to follow them on social media.
In some cases, the blockchain project requires that the only thing you have to do is to be a holder of a relevant cryptocurrency. For example, if the crypto is built on Ethereum, in this case, you will need to have Ethereum in your wallet (of which you are in control of the private key, and not some exchange) at some period ("snapshot") and the tokens will be distributed to you. You must store your tokens only in the wallets that you have control of the private keys!
What is the difference between crypto airdrops and bounty programs?
Crypto airdrops are usually tasks that are required to do only once. Usually, those are not complicated tasks and in most cases, you will need to follow crypto projects on various social media or register for their websites. That is the reason why the award for participating in the cryptocurrency airdrops is not big and it is usually around $5 in project tokens.
On coinbase.com you will need to answer a couple of easy questions to get crypto airdrops. Then the tokes are distributed immediately and you can trade them.
On the other hand, bounties are much harder to participate in. You will be required to complete repetitive tasks that may include posting on social media, forums, or creating quality content. This is the reason why the awards are much bigger than in the common crypto airdrops.
In both cases, your earned tokens will gain value only if the blockchain project is successful. Bear in mind that lots of listed projects may fail and it is not easy to have a successful ICO, have a healthy ecosystem for the token economy, and list the project on the prominent exchange.
Where can you sell your crypto airdrops tokens?
For most of the crypto airdrops, usually, you will have to wait for the token sale to end. After that process blockchain project is usually listed on one of the cryptocurrency exchanges. Then, all you have to do is to create an account there and trade (if you even want to sell them) them. The most popular exchanges are binance.com and coinbase.com.
How to safely participate in cryptocurrency airdrops? How to store and keep crypto safe?
Our general advice is to create a new email that you will use only for crypto airdrops. If a blockchain project that is doing a crypto airdrop is requiring to register on their site, always use a different password. There are some great password manager tools out there. A good practice is to create a new Ethereum address that you will use only for cryptocurrency airdrops. You can easily create it on the previously mentioned www.myetherwallet.com.
The most important rule is to never share your private keys with anyone! The best and most secure way to store crypto airdrops tokens and coins is off-line hardware and cold storage wallets. These devices store your tokens off-line and make them very safe and hard to hack. The most popular hardware wallets are Ledger Wallet Nano S and Trezor. If you are not able to acquire these devices, it is important to choose a wallet where you and only you are in control of the private keys. And to back up your private key on paper and store it in a safe place. Good practice, in general, is to never use the same password for different accounts. Do not ever use the same password for crypto airdrops sites and your email.
