Many crypto projects are distributing free tokens (coins) to their communities to attract attention, increase its visibility, circulating supply and stimulate trade.
These campaigns are also known as "Airdrop", "Bounty", "Giveaway" or "Holder".
As usual Airdrops are performed before the introduction of a new crypto currency and ICO (Initial Coin Offering). Sometimes it takes weeks or months to get the tokens (coins) from an Airdrop.
All Campaigns have its rules and conditions on which they distribute rewards. After coins or tokens being distributed, they can be traded on the different crypto exchanges.
To join airdrops or other type of campaigns, you need to do some preparations and get knowledge about how things work. For more information see the Beginner’s Guide
The one thing you should be aware of beforehand: You don't get rich with Airdrops! However the value of some Airdrops can reach big numbers.
The best example is the Ontology Airdrop, which was performed in 2018 and participants received 1,000 ONT tokens. The all-time high of the Ontology was above $10, which corresponds to more than $10,000 for 1,000 ONT tokens !
So who knows ...
