An airdrop is when a blockchain project decides to distribute all or part of its tokens for free to the people that make up a community, company or any other entity. They are achieved through activities that must be carried out or by fulfilling a series of requirements.
Currently airdrop have been becoming a way to make Online Marketing easier, trying to viralize their projects through users. Many people do not have the way to invest in cryptocurrencies, so this facilitates access to them.
For some time ICOs have been very immersed in the markets, so much so that some have been encouraged to give away coins only by following some steps, such as following them on their social networks or sharing their links.
How does it work?
To be a recipient of an airdrop, the main requirement is to open an account in bitcointalk, because most airdrops request the nick to access. On the other hand, it is recommended that you work on the account to be able to increase your rank and obtain more benefits.
In turn you must have cryptocurrencies of the blockchain on which this project is based. That is, if the company that performs the airdrop is based on Ethereum, it will be necessary to have a certain amount of ETH.
Also, there is another very common way in which it is requested to fill out a form with the address where we want to receive the airdrop token. In many airdrops it is requested to send retweets, follow Facebook pages, register in Telegram groups, give an email and of course, an address of Ethereum, Waves, NEM or even NEO.
It should be noted that it is necessary, if you are willing to hunt airdrops open an exclusive account in some social networks for this. Especially in Telegram, since messages will be received through it.
