Wormhole, the forefront of interoperability and decentralized applications in the Web3 ecosystem, has taken a groundbreaking step by prioritizing its community through an airdrop of its governance token, $W. Wormhole recently announced its raise of $225M at the valuation of $2.5B, one of the most significant fundraises in the industry.

The airdrop to the Wormhole community underscores the platform's dedication to fostering a participatory and inclusive ecosystem. By distributing $W tokens to its community, Wormhole rewards its users and empowers them to participate actively in the platform's governance.

 Airdrop Highlights:

  • Community & Launch Allocation: 17% of the total supply is allocated to the community, with 11% unlocked at the (TGE) for immediate distribution to the community via an airdrop.
    - Snapshot: A pre-announcement snapshot was taken on the 7th of February to ensure a fair and transparent selection process.

Eligibility Criteria:

In anticipation of Wormhole's significant community airdrop, the platform has yet to unveil the eligibility criteria details, creating a sense of curiosity among its users. However, there is a way to gauge your likelihood of qualification through the official Wormhole scan, where users can review their transaction history, volume, and interaction dates with the platform. Moreover, the introduction of specific roles within the Wormhole Discord community, such as RIFT and EARLY, hints at their potential influence on determining eligibility for the airdrop.

Special recognition has been extended to a leading NFT project on Solana, like Mad Lads, which received a dedicated role and channel in the Wormhole Discord, indicating a tailored airdrop allocation. This approach is mirrored in the inclusion of Y00ts and DeGods into the community, suggesting a strategic effort to reward active contributors and key ecosystem players. This trend of rewarding top NFT projects across different chains aligns with broader crypto practices aimed at cultivating a loyal user base, as seen with protocols like Dymension rewarding communities like Tensorians and Madlads, further underlining the importance of active engagement and contribution within the Wormhole ecosystem.
