Welcome to Module 11-Course 2 of Mission Web3!

In this module, we’ll be guiding you through the process of an airdrop and how to stay safe from bad actors.

How to Participate in an Airdrop?

Airdrops are one of the most exciting events in web3—projects walk away with new community members and a boost in ecosystem activity, while participants pad their wallets with fresh tokens. If done properly, partaking in airdrops can be a lucrative endeavor, so much so that we now have the term “airdrop hunters” to describe users who actively seek airdrop opportunities.

But, while experienced airdrop hunters can navigate the web3 jungle with ease, it gets intimidating for beginners, especially when the steps are not laid out clearly. The good news is, you don’t have to be a master to get a slice of that airdrop; in fact, most airdrops have a similar structure and they’re rather straightforward.

With that, let’s jump straight into the action.

  1. To get involved in an airdrop, you first have to register your interest. This typically comes in the form of a survey or a poll, which requires you to provide contact details such as your social media handle and wallet address. Doing so helps the project gauge the interest of the community and ensure a fair token distribution.

  2. Once you’ve submitted your information, it’s time to get your hands dirty with the actual tasks. These tasks are designed with the intention of growing the project. Therefore, if it’s to increase the project’s visibility, expect tasks like engaging on social media and joining a Telegram or a Discord channel; if the intention is to elevate the ecosystem, expect requirements such as staking and swapping on specific protocols.

  3. After completing your tasks, the final step is simply to wait. Airdrop campaigns can span from a few days up to a week. At the end of the campaign, the team behind the project will conduct the verification to ensure you’ve completed the necessary tasks and allocate the tokens accordingly. Remember to check the project’s official website and social media channels for updates.
