What are Airdrops?

Crypto Airdrops are promotional tokens that crypto project teams send to wallet addresses to create awareness. Many airdrops are free, and useful in building a community around a project. By giving out airdrops, projects create incentives for people to use the platform. and therefore promote their growth.

Airdrops can sometimes be worth a fortune, requiring very few tasks from potential recipients. The leading projects you should consider in 2024 for potential airdrops are as follows.

Top 5 Airdrops

With 2024 starting on a bullish note, here is a list of projects that have given hints to their respective communities on their plan to airdrop their native tokens to users of their platforms.

1.LayerZero Protocol Airdrop

Layerzero is the interoperability protocol that connects several different chains. It is a low-level communication primitive that allows you to build applications that can work seamlessly across different blockchains. With Layerzero, you can build different features of your application using different blockchains and they will still be able to function perfectly. This is done in a way that is secure, cheap, and fast.

LayerZero Protocol: Crypto airdrops

LayerZero is a heavily funded project with over $300 million in its treasury and has the support of some big companies (Coinabase Capital, Binance Labs, Uniswap Labs, Polygon, Sequoia Capital) in the crypto space. The team has not given an indication yet that there will be a token or an airdrop but the developer’s document does point to the creation of a ZRO token.

How to get Layerzero the airdrop

Use different DApps that are currently integrated into the ecosystem. Stargate Finance is the first and largest of these and they have the STG token (Governance token). Make use of the Stargate finance, Stake their native tokens, and use various other decentralized Applications that are in the Layaerzero Ecosystem. Use the Testnets available on the protocols.

2. zKsync Airdrop

Zksync is a layer 2 Ethereum scaling solution to batch transactions off the Ethereum chain. It sends transactions faster and at a much cheaper rate.

Zksync has received almost $500 million in seed funding from investors – including the Ethereum Foundation, making it one of the largest funded crypto projects. It is more likely that the token release will be to promote the use of the platforms rather than to raise more funds, to incentivize users

How to get zkSync the airdrop

Participate in Gitcoin donation rounds, using Zksync to make your donations, make deposits to the Zksync layer2, and interact with the various applications supported by the ecosystem. Make use of the Argent wallet -one of the wallets supported by the ecosystem

3. Scroll Airdrop
