This article is about rumors and speculations about some of the most profitable Crypto Airdrops 2022.
Airdrops are a great way to get started to build an initial capital in Cryptos or also to get some free money.
My name is Leo, and I had my first contact with Bitcoin end of 2013. Over the years, I caught some nice Airdrops but also missed some of the major ones. 2021 was crazy when it comes to Airdrops; that's why I decided to do my research and look at the most promising Airdrops 2022. All of those are just rumors and not confirmed yet. Also, take care that you do not get scammed. Always do your own research.
First, we will look at what an Airdrop is and how you can take part in it. After that, we will look at some of the most promising Crypto Airdrops for 2022, Resources where you can find out about more future Airdrops and how not to get scammed.
Let's get started.
What is a Crypto Airdrop, and why do they exist?
Airdrops are usually sent toward the wallets of active members and early adopters and platform users; they reward people using their Service early. Cryptocurrency projects use this as a marketing strategy to get some attention and traction.
If you have a small budget or want to grow your Crypto Portfolio and some free money to it, Airdrops are a great way to get started in Cryptos.
Some examples of Airdrops are the Ethereum Name Service Airdrop, which ranges from $13.000 to $84.000 for users who bought and used their ENS Domains. Sick. Up to $84.000 free money for their users. I missed that one.
Another big one was the Uniswap Airdrop. They distributed 400 of the native Token $UNI to all users who used the protocol in V1 or V2. At the all-time high, 400 $UNI were worth $17.968 or today 6240. I was luckier here than with ENS.
Note that the hunt for Airdrops can be time-consuming, and there are also scams out there. Suppose you are an early adopter and use Service early anyway, jumping on new chains immediately and trying available services. In that case, you will probably qualify for Airdrops automatically without the need for too much research.
Let's check how to qualify for future Airdrops.
How to take part in an Airdrop?
Usually, you and the Crypto Community get rewarded with Native Crypto Coins when you were an early adopter and used the Service early. We saw ENS and UNISwap as examples before.
As general advice is, use the services, and you may qualify for a token Airdrop. You never can be 100% sure, but do the following things.
- Deposit and conduct swap/trades, stake, and provide liquidity on the platform
- Trading volume matters, sometimes it does not. Try to increase the volume as much as possible.
- Play around with as many features as possible. Yield Farming, Staking, Swapping, Bridging, Voting, etc.
- Contribute to the Service.
After doing the mentioned and more activities, it's time to hope that your early engagement will pay off and you will qualify for the future Airdrop.
It is time to take action and have a look at some rumors.
Potential Airdrops 2022
There are currently hundreds of crypto projects which might potentially distribute retroactive Airdrops to their users. Here are a few.
To increase your chances of obtaining this Airdrop, register on the MetaMask platform and do some swaps via the app if it turns out to be accurate. After the $MASK Metamask Token launches, the community expects a big Airdrop.
How to qualify: Make Swaps with Metamask browser extension directly. You can also try to do Metamask In-app Swaps on different Blockchains like Binance Smart Chain and Fantom. These are just rumors, but most likely, this would qualify you for the Airdrop.

Do not get scammed
Scammers are very advanced, be careful and do not be too greedy. Always check the project before connecting your wallet to a website and let the Smart Contract interact with your wallet.
Some token airdrop hunters are using their own (Metamask) wallet with a minimum of funds on the wallet when they hunt. That is a good practice because some malicious/fake websites will empty your wallet after allowing the website to interact with your wallet.
Also, never share your seed phrase or private key with anyone.
If you hear from an Airdrop (also here), do your own research, I am not legal or financial advice of any kind and not responsible for your decisions. Own your actions and take responsibility for the consequences.
Airdrops are a great way to learn about Crypto projects, Services, start using them and start building capital without the need for a more significant initial investment.
It can be time-consuming to qualify for a future Airdrop, and you need to be careful that you are not getting scammed.
