During times of war, airdrops were used to deliver post, food, cigarettes and even booze (what doesn’t break only makes us drunker). In peacetime, they help us beat computer games and allow iOS users to quickly share photos and videos. In the crypto world, “airdrop” means a giveaway – the one true purpose in life of a classic freeloader. And also measure startups are forced to take to get some exposure. It’s tricky to do that on social media these days. Everything started with bounty programmes. Startups wanted to save money on designers, community managers, and translators, so they offered to pay for this work in tokens. If the project wasn’t some sort of scam, this arrangement suited all parties. And it was in their common interest to get the job done well.

The next stage was bringing friends into Telegram channels, Facebook pages, and Bitcointalk threads. Some ICOs spent about 5% of all their issued tokens on this. While other sly foxes even tried to sponge off the phenomenon. Why don’t we make our own ICO help other people hold cool ICOs to support awesome ICOs? 😀

And then came airdrops. The classic format looks like this: sign up, repost something and give the address of your Ethereum wallet. In a couple of days/weeks/months, the tokens will be credited to your balance. Hundreds of groups on Twitter, Telegram and Facebook post news about more than 30 new airdrops every single day. So you’re always up to date. Sounds like a fairy tale, right? Then why not drop everything to make multiple accounts and wallets and earn tons of crypto while sitting on your arse?
