I have never invested my time trying to catch one because I am a bit sketchy in terms of knowledge about how it all works.
I think we need to do some tasks or just give our ETH address or whatever they ask, and we will get a few tokens sent to our wallet at the said time. (Correct me if wrong).
Those ICOs which conduct airdrops, are they worth to be invested in? If yes, how and why?

It depends really on the airdrop itself. The eBTC airdrop was very good. I received 2400 eBTC and I sold them for 800 dollar. the ELTCOIN airdrop and eGOLD airdrops are very good too. I will Hodl those two. But like I said it depends really.

Airdrop is one of the ways to promote ICO/tokens. The more people have tokens and are involved to a product\platform, the more chances to hit the jackpot for founders. At the same time, the promoted technology must be promising and high-demand. And a team should follow through the line Smiley So I suppose airdrop does not affect the success of the campaign in any way.

I'm currently participating in the DeepOnion airdrop and it's definitely worth the time spent. The community is growing fast, devs are the most active ones I've seen so far and we're getting about $500-$800 worth of DO every week... can it possibly be better? Wink

I think that most of ICOs and airdrops are not worth, but some of them are. We saw some examples of good deals recently. First I started to apply to every airdrop, but now I don't do that anymore. I try to find out is there a good story behind some project.

It's not worth to be invested and why because the airdrop can be considered as a little inflation, and you what is the purpose to buy those tokens if you can catch em all through airdrop? Like what already did by me to invested in those ico just like kyber = i got 4x from my investment, Zero protocol = i got 10x from my investment , iconomi = i got 15x from my investment.
The result of your investment will depened on the your research about the best icos to invest in this time.
You can see how the latest airdrop project such as ebtc turned into scam project.

Sometimes worh it sometimes did not it depends on a campaign manager whether he has a good guy or not but sometimes they runaway after the end of the ICO. It comes with airdrops you should have patience sometimes the developer difficult to distrubute the token.

Some airdrops and ICOs nowadays are just nothing or some are scam. But, you can try airdrops that are free, just try it and nothing will happen in trying. Some ICOs nowadays have great potential for future, participate on the ICO that have great roadmap, research them by your own. Identifying their future projects and what is the use of their coin.

Wait what? Promote?
Airdrop coins look more like scam coins to me because I think they have nothing better to offer than "air-dropping" their coins for free to gather some interest in the community, let them start the HYPE about these people's "promising" projects that may turn into nothing if everything doesn't work out as they expected. Sometimes, even concepts that have the best people, "fail" due to some wrong campaigning methods. I am not against them because I haven't tried any of these yet, but I don't know why am I scared to give my details that they ask in order to get some coins during their live air-drops.

I've not done one of these airdrops, except for the ones where didn't have a choice, like BCH.

My question for the group is...what is the risk in participating? You have to give them your address...do they ask for anything else?

Thanks!

I have never liked airdrops, most of them are just saying that they are gifting tokens only if they are doing X thing, like wearing a signature, avatar, promoting their program, they are just a waste of time, because most of those tokens doesnt even have a value.
Or just like deeponion, they give you 500 coins a week, but you can only sell 25 a week if you dont want to be banned from their airdrop..

ICOs are meant for you to pay for the tokens, so they are basically saying "we need funds to get our project going". Easy to find several projects that slow their development or even disappear after they get investors money.

Airdrops are another option to distribute the tokens, this one for free, and while some say they are a waste of time because nobody does good things for free I couldn't disagree more.

There are several airdrop projects that have 100 times more development and work done than many ICO projects take a look at Deeponion for example and take your own conclusions.

I rarely invest in any of these ICOs but would definitely open my arms to receive free tokens from airdrops as it will cost me nothing except my free time.

So are the ICOs worth it? Maybe/Maybe not
Are the free tokens worth it? Definitely Yes if you have the time.

I have never invested my time trying to catch one because I am a bit sketchy in terms of knowledge about how it all works.
I think we need to do some tasks or just give our ETH address or whatever they ask, and we will get a few tokens sent to our wallet at the said time. (Correct me if wrong).
Those ICOs which conduct airdrops, are they worth to be invested in? If yes, how and why?
There's nothing wrong with that ICO's that have an airdrop as long as the Project or the ICO was legit and they only follow the trend of airdrops to gain much more attention and investors. But for those airdrops it was profitable but not always because many of these were created to scam us.
