Top 10 crypto airdrops of 2024 for Indian investors

Airdrops

There is no such thing as a free lunch, yet the crypto industry offers something close. Crypto airdrops are a popular marketing strategy to promote blockchain projects, foster engagement, and get people to talk about cryptos. In this article, we’ll explore the top 10 upcoming airdrops in 2024 for Indian investors. But let us first understand what crypto airdrops are. 

What are crypto airdrops?

Crypto airdrops are free giveaways of cryptos to the crypto community. Performing an airdrop is a business or marketing strategy. However, they reward participants generously, hence their popularity in the crypto space. Crypto airdrops can vary from new tokens to NFTs where instant airdrops are sent to user wallets. However, participants need to accomplish certain tasks to become eligible for a crypto airdrop, 

The purpose of a crypto airdrop

The purpose of a crypto airdrop depends on the specific project, but the goals are broadly the same. 

  • To get people to talk about the crypto project and its related token.
  • To garner the attention of participants in the crypto community.
  • To promote projects and reward supporters.
  • To build community engagement and social media presence.

Conclusion

The cherry on top, of course, is earning rewards in the form of airdrops.
