Everything You Need to Know About the First Wave of EOS Airdrops

EOS has become a powerhouse in the crypto space. One of the most promising things about it is the airdrops. Unlike Ethereum, many EOS projects are choosing to collect zero funds up front. Instead, they simply drop their token to the EOS community, while dropping themselves tokens to fund their project. The EOS markets then decide the value of the token based on demand, The team then sells some of its tokens to raise money. Since it’s easy and practically free to start a project on EOS, new players are popping up every day.

We looked into each new airdrop and compiled some cliffs and instructions on how to claim them. This list was made with the most promising projects on top, weaker ones on the bottom.

Without further adieu, here are 13 of the first airdrops to arrive in EOS holders wallets once the EOS main net goes live next week.

EOX

EOX is a decentralized e-commerce platform that allows all EOS based tokens to be spent. EOX’s goal is to facilitate a global commerce system that allows all goods and services to be transacted in cryptocurrency without relying on fiat money.

When they make a sale they can program the smart contract to automatically pay-out to whoever. You can also protect your data while on the platform, only releasing it to businesses/advertisers who pay you in EOX.

There is a major need for a crypto that enables fee-less micro-transactions. The team looks really solid. Experience at JP Morgan, Qualcomm and Swift. Most of the team worked previously at Ruby on Rails, an open sourced web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.
