Before Blockchain and crypto started gaining massive traction and fomo, there were not a lot of airdrops out there, and they were more or less harmless and good-willed, but when the industry started growing, developing, and gaining more attention from the general public, a lot of people abused the notion and idea of airdrops to get a slice of free money from new market entrants.
Thankfully, the industry and platforms that help people discover and participate in airdrops have involved a significant amount over recent years. In the past, airdrop platforms would let virtually anybody advertise and host their airdrops without fulfilling KYC requirements and providing any basic information.
Now, however, requirements are becoming more stringent towards tokens and coins that want to run airdrops, and participants are growing increasingly more aware of what’s actually legitimate and what is not. Which is undoubtedly a good thing as a constant flurry of dead end cash grab projects definitely doesn’t do the Blockchain and cryptocurrency market any favors.
Currently, there are more positive players working on developing and growing Blockchain technology than ever before, with sights set on the long-term benefits that the tech can provide, rather than focusing on quick cash grabs in the form of phony airdrops. But, scammers aren’t sitting still either, they’re becoming sneakier in their ways too. Today we sit down with Morten Christensen, CEO of Airdrop Alert to get more insight into how Airdrops have evolved and where things are headed.
