Become eligible for a confirmed or potential airdrop.

Crypto airdrops provide a way for projects to distribute tokens evenly among early adopters of their platform. Some of the more popular protocol airdrops like Uniswap, Rarible, dYdX, ENS, and 1inch have been highly profitable for their early users and represent excellent examples of being rewarded for participation in crypto. 

Last updated October 28th

Last year we saw multiple high-value airdrops for early users. One such example was dYdX, a decentralized margin trading platform that airdropped its early user’s tokens worth between $4,000 and $135,000, depending on trading volume.

Another memorable airdrop was carried out by Ethereum Naming Service (ENS) earlier this year, the web 3.0 username service. Users who bought ENS domains received upwards of four digits. Imagine their smiles.

Did you miss out on retroactive airdrops where early users have been airdropped a ton of free tokens? Keep reading and below you will find a list of promising decentralized DeFi protocols and platforms that have either confirmed airdrops or have great potential for it.

What you should know before airdrop hunting

Unless we point to confirmed airdrops, we believe it may be worth interacting with these protocols to increase your chances of being eligible for potential ones.

Note that we use the terms : criteria & potential criteria to differentiate confirmed airdrops from those that could happen. Also, it is never clear what the team behind the projects has in mind, and we can only speculate based on each project’s application.

Also, it is important to highlight that in the case of potential airdrops, there is no guarantee that they will do an airdrop for the early users of the platform.
