Forgive my capturing the title that way. I didn't know how best to express my inquiry within a limited space.

With so many new projects issuing giveaways and airdrops to announce their presence this day, I am wondering if Satoshi Nakamoto at any point did an airdrop for Bitcoin? I have searched the forum for any clue on this question but couldn't get my finger on any thread that treated it. Thus my question now.

Could any of the earlier adopters here tell us how it was at the beginning with Bitcoin.

No airdrop. It was not difficult to mine BTC with a regular computer via CPU(not GPU- for a while at 50 BTC a block.

After some time Gavin set up a faucet that gave out something like 1-10 BTC or whatever. The amount lowered over time, I think it was kept to around $0.10 usd in value more or less.

Bitcoin has become so familiar to us, with the bumping up of the top bitcoin in value, so that bitcoin services are getting more and more bitcoin. Free from bitcoin digging

In the US, airdrop is questioned about taxes and whether it is ultimately income or capital surplus. There is no consistent answer, but consulting a qualified tax professional should be the first step.

Airdrop is not meaning less and was never meaning less. But bitcoin did not issued any airdrop. Nonetheless several other early projects started with airdrop and if you check coinmarketcap they are among the top 50 coins. Now airdrop spaced is already messed up, many people are seeing it as a way to dump and get quick money while the investors will now suffer. So presently not all airdrops have value. Some projects still make good use of it and it pays off. Besides the idea behind it is to give people the coins to start using. So airdrop is not just used by meaningless projects.


airdrop is meaningless. and it is used by these useless projects to get newbies to pay them a small attention for a while during the time when they are pumping the coin. otherwise there is no reason to give away money like that to get people to get in.
additionally airdrop is a method of distributing the supply for those coins/tokens that have 100% premine.

the early days of bitcoin was Satoshi mining bitcoin and some others like Hal Finey running a node and also mining bitcoin. then people saw the "idea" and got interested and started joining in little by little.
the pizza story that was mentioned above was years after that.

Every thing has time, I guest early before now, bitcoin has been given away as airdrop, which can not be at the this point in time, because bitcoin is not a peanut to give away just like other alt-coin.
