It is common to come across numerous cryptocurrency airdrops within the industry. Many new and upcoming coins and tokens choose to perform airdrops as a way to increase hype and attention for their products. It can also be an impressive way to kickstart (or bootstrap) a new ecosystem.
The only problem is that not everybody knows where to look when trying to find airdrops. It is often the case that people hear about them only after they have concluded. When it comes to airdrops, it is ideal to be there at the start, as higher quantities of tokens are often given out early.
Here is a list of the three best places to find airdrops from:
The cryptocurrency exchange, RightBTC, is by far one of the greatest places for finding airdrops. Not only does the exchange regularly run them, but they are also selective as to which tokens they choose to work with. RightBTC only conduct airdrops with companies that they trust. This means that you will only get airdrops for high-quality tokens. The exchange has run airdrops for both CEEK and EBOOST in the past, and with the announcement of their very own token (the Right Token), they revealed that they have more airdrops planned in the future.
Keeping RightBTC on your radar is a guaranteed way to find out about new and upcoming airdrops.
AirdropAlert is a website which lists numerous airdrops within the community. It is regularly updated, and new airdrops are constantly announced. It also tells you how long the airdrop has been running for. AirdropAlert also runs a second site called BountiesAlert, where they showcase the various cryptocurrency bounties which are currently happening.
The one problem with both AirdropAlert and BountiesAlert is that they both will list any coin or token, regardless of whether it is a scam or not. They do not seem to perform any sort of checks to make sure that the airdrops they list are actually worthwhile. This means that each user must search for themselves first.
The BitcoinAirdrops subreddit is dedicated to finding and discussing airdrops which exclusively pertain to Bitcoin. Since the Bitcoin Cash fork, numerous developers have been forking Bitcoin and creating their own coins. Sometimes when this happens, it is possible to freely claim a separate amount of coins on the new fork, so long as you have bitcoins first. The most famous time this happened was with Bitcoin Cash. Users who owned bitcoins before the fork could also claim an equal quantity of Bitcoin Cash. As developers are still out there forking Bitcoin, it is still possible to claim new coins.
