Airdropping might conjure up images of huge planes parachuting supplies. However, in the crypto field, this term is the 21st-century equivalent as it involves gifting token holders free additional coins.
It’s no wonder that some think of crypto airdrops as money falling from the sky. Holders of a token (stored in a wallet) are usually eligible for airdrops and receive additional tokens, without any associated fees or costs.
With December just around the corner, here are some of the best airdrops you should check out in the last month of the year:
Storm (STORM) – 07 December 2018
Storm is a very exciting blockchain project that aims to create opportunities for people around the world to earn cryptocurrency rewards by performing gamified micro-tasks. In short, Storm aims to become one of the most important global markets of gamified micro-tasks. The more tasks one completes, the more money he or she can make.
The platform provides a smart contract-powered and protected link between Storm Markers and Storm Players. The Storm Markers offer micro-tasks, and the Storm Players have to execute them. The platform’s token is an ERC-20 crypto token on the Ethereum blockchain and is specifically designed for gamers, game platforms, advertisers, and machine learning companies.
For 2018, the crypto company scheduled four airdrops, or Storm Drops, the last of which takes place on December 7th. The airdrop is for unsold tokens, and it’s meant to encourage wider mass adoption. For more details, make sure to keep an eye on the project’s Blog.
