Crypto Airdrop FAQ

Here you are able to find common crypto airdrop related questions and their answers. If you have further questions, you can contact us.

In the cryptocurrency world, an airdrop stands for free crypto tokens, which you can earn by doing simple tasks on different social media platforms. They commonly occur up to 1 to 3 months before the ICO (Initial Coin Offering). The reason for an airdrop is that new projects want to create awareness for their project and they also want to attract new potential investors for their upcoming project.

The main goal is to get users who spread information through different social media channels about their projects. Mostly it's about sharing and liking posts on their social media channels. This will raise awareness and attract new potential investors. A high user base has a positive impact on the token value. That's the reason why they are giving you tokens for free - That's the way how they promote their project!

There are different types of airdrops:

  1. Initial-Coin-Offering (ICO) - These airdrops take place before the ICO (Initial Coin Offering). Such airdrops need a long time period and can also be unsuccessful if the project doesn’t collect their Soft Cap in their ICO.
  2. Holder - Companies will distribute tokens to their token holders for free. To benefit from it, you need to have a defined token at a specific time, a so-called snapshot, in your wallet.
  3. Hard Forks - Requires to hold tokens on the Original Chain. The most famous examples for that kind of airdrops are Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum Classic.

It would help if you had different social media accounts and crypto wallets to participate in airdrops. Below you can find a list of the most important social media accounts.

Create a Crypto wallet - You need to create different blockchain wallets to be able to receive airdrops. We would recommend you to have at least a wallet for ERC20 tokens. Based on our experience, 90% of all crypto airdrops are created on the Ethereum Chain.

Create Social Media accounts - We would recommend having at least a Telegram, Twitter and Facebook account. If you have participated in an airdrop, never leave any social media channel before you've received the tokens of the airdrop. Otherwise, this can lead to disqualification.

For an airdrop, you have to do an activity only once. After a while, you will get your free tokens. Rewards are lower due to lower effort.

For a bounty program, you are asked to do regular activities, and you often have to report all tasks you have done to the project team. Bounty programs are worth more than airdrops, but the effort is not comparable. Please always keep in consideration that some projects can fail. If that's the case, you won't receive any tokens.

Usually, it takes 3-6 months until you get your tokens. We always try to give you an exact date as early as possible. The reason that you have to wait is that airdrops take place before the ICO.

If you do airdrops that are not on our website, you should regularly check your wallet and look out for announcements. 

If you join the airdrops on AirdropBob, we will take over the big part of the work and will actively inform you about the airdrops you've participated in. All you have to do is to mark your airdrops as "favorite". So no more observing for you! We see this as one of our unique services - an excellent advantage for you.

In short, Yes!

We recommend doing so for several reasons.
First of all, there could be a release of the main chain, which requires you to exchange your tokens. Besides, its always nice to know, how the project is going. Maybe you can support the project somehow. At least that's our opinion. If you have joined any airdrop over our website, we will track the tokens. We also keep you up to date, if we notice any important changes about the listed projects. To be able to receive these updates, you have to add the airdrops to your "favorites". You will receive an email to your registered email address.

So far, there is no problem keeping your crypto tokens in your online wallet, as long as you never share your credentials (besides your public key). During the time your portfolio will grow in value. Therefore we would recommend moving your tokens to an offline hardware wallet. This way it is nearly impossible to have your tokens stolen.

The best-known hardware wallet is called Trezor Wallet.
Please only order through the official website of the Trezor Wallet.

More and more exchanges are popping out of the ground rapidly. Most of them are listing a load of different tokens. You can check the available market and exchange listings on Coingecko. In the beginning, most of the free earned tokens are not listed on big exchanges, so in the first period, you can trade your airdrop token through decentralized exchanges like Uniswap.

For high-quality projects, the tokens will also appear on centralized exchanges, which can be found here: centralized exchanges. After registration, you need to perform a know-your-customer procedure. We recommend activating Two Factor Authentication to improve the security of your account.

We can recommend the following websites:

CoinMarketCap Coinmarketcap A great place to have an overview of the current exchange rates in the cryptocurrency market.
Coinvigilance Coinvigilance A nice news portal which gives you an overview of the cryptocurrency industry.
Coindesk Coindesk Do you search for cryptocurrency news, then you should check out coindesk.

There are many people out there who want to scam and betray you. The most important rule is that you never give your account data (private key, password) to anyone - The only data you can share without risk are the public keys of your wallets!

If you follow these rules, you should be on the safe side:

  • Do not share your private key!
  • Never send money or tokens for an airdrop.
  • Create a new Ethereum wallet.
  • Use different passwords.
  • Be careful with KYC airdrops.
  • Only do airdrops from trusted sites!

Even though we try to list only legitimate and real airdrops, always keep in mind that mistakes can happen. We are not responsible for any problems or losses that may occur due to scams or inaccurate information.

Before a project is listed, many important things are checked to make it as easy as possible for our users to recognize good projects quickly.

What does the website look like in general? Is social media activity available? Is the Whitepaper available and meaningful? Is team member information available? Feasible timeline / roadmap? etc.

We have introduced a 5-star rating to see at a glance how the project is to be classified.
(Please note: this is only our assessment and not an investment recommendation!)

  • 1* - Scam. You will never see this rating because such projects are immediately made invisible, as we do not support them.
  • 2* - Project / Airdrop seems not 100% trustworthy (information missing etc.) join at own risk
  • 3* - Project / Airdrop seems fine, but important information missing (token value, whitepaper, etc.), or the effort/benefit ratio is not that good.
  • 4* - Overall a good Project / Airdrop (No 5-star rating because of: Low value, high effort, information missing, etc.)
  • 5* - Everything looks perfectly fine, don´t miss those.

One more visual factor is the "top rating" label. Only very few airdrops receive the "honor" to be top rated (you can find a red ribbon around the upper left corner of the airdrop symbol). Only very well rated projects receive this award.

Top Example

Whenever you find a "top-rated" airdrop, you should take your chances as fast as possible, in order not to miss your chance.
