Beginner Course Steemit Crypto Academy Season 3 Week 3 | Airdrop - Giveaway In Cryptocurrency
1). What do you think about Airdrop in cryptocurrency?
I think that Airdrop in cryptocurrency, is very good as is a way of creating awareness of newly launched cryptocurrency that want to be listed on an exchange as in Initial Coin Offering. In this case any cryptocurrency that want to be listed on ICO need to have it own Airdrop which will make investors know about such cryptocurrency. I can probably say that Aaidrop in cryptocurrency is very essentials to its company as it seek to promote the activities and boost the blockchain start up of such company. There is a saying that "Not all that glitter are gold", as some Airdrop in cryptocurrency are bad and good. Some Airdrop in cryptocurrency are totally scam and waste of time. The ones that are scams always involves sending of small amounts of Bitcoin, Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies to unidentified addresses. A good Airdrop in cryptocurrency will only focus on promoting it's coin and companies. This make me to think that 60% of Aidrop in cryptocurrency are totally scam and waste of time.
2). How can we know about an Airdrop event so that we can participate
It's easier for we to know about an Airdrop. Airdrop are always being promoted on the website of the company, and also social media platforms like telegram, Twitter channel, Facebook or any other cryptocurrency forums, and sometimes Airdrop tokens are sent to holders of cryptocurrency wallet like Ethereum or Bitcoin.
3). Where are Airdrop events often held?
Airdrop events are often held and manage by https://airdrops.io. Airdrop in airdrop.io are usually distributed to followers of @airdrops_io on Twitter and also Telegram channel. And also Airdrop are often held directly on the website of that is launching the airdrop.
4). Are all Airdrop events free from scams? Otherwise, how can we avoid the scam?
Not all Aidrop events as free from scams as I early say. Some Airdrop are pure scams which I called dusting scam because it has to do with sending of specific amount of Bitcoin, Ethereum or any other cryptocurrencies to unidentified recipients before you can start claiming the Airdrop. An Airdrop that is free from scams will only focus on creating awareness of the cryptocurrency and would never seek for any form of send micro crypto or Investment or whatsoever. In other to avoid the scam is better to be vigilant about unnecessarily deposit into any wallet that claim to be giving out aidrop. And also you have to stay off until you have research and find out that the Airdrop is legit.
