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.

It all started on the pizza story, then it was spreading little by little when people start knowing about Bitcoin until it starts increasing with value and investors, individuals was fascinated by it, but the main point is the developer and the owner who start this project never comes out on public and declare his try intention... so until today no one knows the exact origin of point and what was the exact purpose

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.

I think, there is no airdrop for bitcoin, one of the purpose of airdrop is to attract investors' attention, and I think bitcoin does not need airdrop, because the popularity of bitcoin today is extraordinary, even though it is experiencing a bearish market.

Airdrops are something that devs use to convince newbies to buy their scam coins so they make money. Bitcoin doesn't need air drops, and Satoshi would never in a million years want airdrops for Bitcoin, or even approve of airdrops for Bitcoin. Bitcoin stands on it's own merit. However, with that being said, other coins have air drops with Bitcoins Blockchain though. The one that comes to mind is CLAMS. They had a snapshot of the BTC blockchain and distributed coins based off of your BTC balance. This of course had nothing to do with Bitcoin, it was just an Altcoin using Bitcoins blockchain. Now, mostly these airdrops take place on scam coins, like EOS.

You could also consider Bitcoin forks as airdrops, however the forks eventually will become worthless. But there has been many forks, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin private, Bitcoin gold, etc the list goes on.

From what I know airdrop is just a format a project develooper to get more people to know about their project, they uses it to catch attention of fresher to bitcoin by asking them to perform a specific task and In turn give them a small portion of their token as compensation .  But I av not seen where it was listed that bitcoin actually did airdrop to get attention of users

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.

Nope. Not as far as I know.

I do remember being sent a very random PGP email by someone in 2010 who had used (or knew of my exchange service) offering me 10,000 BTC for nothing, although even with the low value at that time I declined the offer anyway. I think I deleted the email, however it was most certainly from a 'cypherpunk'-esque type of character.

It didn't register with myself as being very significant until I watched one of the early Bitcoin film documentaries (The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin - 2014) and the same thing was mentioned by someone else who later ran or started a more prolific exchange service. I will try to find the approximate min. when it is mentioned by them.

Don't know if it was Satoshi or not.

...

If you are asking about general acquisition of bitcoin in the early days of the forum then basically it was so easy to mine some with a single CPU machine that you didn't need to think about it in that regard. You can see an example of the genuine first BTC prices here:

- http://newlibertystandard.wikifoundry.com/page/2009+Exchange+Rate

It used to be at wetpaint . something , but that is the exact same site.

No need for Bitcoin Airdrop. The popularity of the bitcoin made it a highly priced assets. People will invests to bitcoin without the help of airdrop.

Remember airdrop is for marketing and promotional strategy, usually done in ICO's.

My God 10000 Bitcoin for free offered to you.  You rejected this offer.  vow.  But At that time the value of 10000 bitcoin was around 7$.  
It proves that bitcoin in itself has no value;  it's value is because of it's demand among so many people due to it's utility.  
So if someone sent email to you it means there were some persons engaged in the activity of making bitcoin popular.  For popularity free distribution was being done.  
This is what the teams of ICOs are doing via Airdrops.  But they are asking the persons engaged in airdrops to retweet / reshare their posts.  And in return they are giving few coins to the persons entering airdrops.

Bitcoin was given to early adopters who were fortunate to know about it though it was not called airdrop. There were giveaways to people to enable bitcoin  spread. Remember the guy who bought a pissa with 1BTC about 8 years ago that may have been from such giveaway.

Similar...

Perhaps more like a Joey Allegra >> The Money Machine kinda vibe.   Grin

...

10,000 BTC was a much more popular quota in 2010 I guess. Much like $7 worth of BTC today.

Crypto airdrop is when a blockchain or ICO project distributes free tokens or coins to the crypto community and also through the chain of split from the blockchain Bitcoin and altcoin airdrops into the bitcoin wallet everyone who holds bitcoin can generate dividends by collecting and exchanging free altcoins for more bitcoin.

It wouldn't be termed as bitcoin airdrop, but in effect, some people argue that there was an airdrop just that the style of distribution wasn't like what we see today. But that also raises the question that is there was an airdrop of bitcoin, then why the anonymous Nakamoto. Bitcoin was previously valueless since it was used to receive candies from shops and the valueless item. That all I can say.

You are spamming this forum with your trash post. Go spam elsewhere, I ain't asking about the pizza story.

Just like these new projects, bitcoin too wasn't popular at the beginning. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Here is no requirement of bitcoin airdrop because bitcoin is already famous, Airdrop is required for new projects to attract investors. now many ICO is doing this kind of airdrops. in 2011 when i was play online games than many sites give 0.0001 btc as giveaway. bitcoin is adapting in worldwide and most valuable currency so don't need any kind of airdrop.

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.
