What is an airdrop?

A cryptocurrency airdrop is a marketing technique promoting a coin or a token project. It involves sending some coins or tokens to various wallet addresses often belonging to members of the project community. Members can receive tokens for free or after sharing the project’s post on social media for example.

However, cryptocurrency users should be careful when receiving these kinds of funds. They could come from various scams such as dusting attacks or pump and dump scams.
