The 2024 airdrop season has started. In addition to potential big hits such as Cosmos, EigenLayer, Renzo, and Berachain, Foresight News has selected more than 10 recent airdrop projects worth paying attention to, covering Layer 2, DeFi, Sui, Bitcoin, wallets, RWA, Cosmos game chain and other fields, what other opportunities do you have to participate in these projects?

OP Mainnet

Community usersOP Michael said, before April 2023, perhaps 20 million OP will be used for airdrops. Currently, there have been 3 airdrops, with a total of 19, 411, 313 OP.

To obtain the fourth OP airdrop, you may still need to entrust the OP to an active delegator. But at the same time, since the last airdrop was entirely focused on OP staking, the fourth airdrop may also adopt other standards, such as interacting with other OP super chains such as OP Mainnet, Base and Zora.

Scallop

The Sui ecosystem has experienced explosive growth in the past six months, with TVL exceeding US$300 million, surpassing Bitcoin to become the third largest non-EVM chain. SUI also had a strong market pull some time ago, reaching a maximum of 1.45 USDT on January 15.

For an explanation of Suis ecology, see Haotian: Behind Sui’s brilliance: the “blood advantage” of the Move public chain and the new DeFi ecosystem that is expected to explode》。

ScallopIt is the lending agreement on Sui, and it is also a recent airdrop project on Sui. Scallop TVL is now US$61.4 million, ranking first in the Sui ecosystem. It is also the first DeFi project to receive funding from the Sui Foundation, and has received investments from Comma 3 Ventures and OtterSec.

Scallop token SCA can be used for governance and voting, liquidity mining and lending interest fee discounts. The total supply of SCA is 250 million, 45% is used for liquidity mining, 18.5% is allocated to Scallop project contributors, 4% is used for development and operations, 2% is allocated to consultants, 11% is allocated to strategic partners, 7.5 % is allocated to the ecosystem/community/market, 5% is used for liquidity, and 7% is allocated to the treasury.

On January 1, 2024, Scallop launched the airdrop points system and completed the first phase of snapshots to reward early Scallop supporters. Users can earn points based on their activity and participation in Scallop, and can use points to generate Mysterious Pearls. Mysterious Pearls are divided into different levels such as bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, and legend. You can receive airdrops after the tokens go online.

However, the value of the airdrop in the second phase seems to be higher. The project team stated that the points in the first phase are different from the points in the second phase, and the number and value of pearls that can be redeemed in the two phases will also be different. At the same time, most of the airdrops will be awarded to second-stage users. Scallop has launched the second phase of airdrop on January 16, which will last for 2 weeks.

  • First, qualified borrowers who provide a time-weighted value greater than $100 on Scallop before the second phase of the airdrop will be rewarded with points;

  • Secondly, starting from January 16, users who provide liquidity and lending on Scallop during the second phase will also receive points, snapshots will be taken every day, and points will be updated every 48 hours;

  • A few days after the event ends, users can redeem their points for mysterious pearls.

In addition, Scallop has been migrated from Solana to Sui. Previously, early Solana voters and NFT holders of the Scallop DAapp will be rewarded in a separate reward pool, but they will not be able to participate in the Scallop Mysterious Pearl.

NAVI Protocol

NAVI ProtocolAlso a loan agreement on Sui, TVL is now $54.55 million, ranking second after Scallop. NAVI Protocol is one of the 4th phase projects of OKX Web3 Wallet Cryptopedia. On December 8, OKX Web3 Wallet also launched the NAVI interest rate hike event, attracting a large amount of liquidity.

NAVI Protocol has not yet announced the details of the airdrop, but it has been listed on Leaderboard, and points will be issued to users every week based on the total liquidity provided, loan volume, weekly activity, and Zealy points. According to the roadmap, the NAVI Protocol utility token and governance token NAVI will be released in the first and second quarters of 2024.

StakeStone

Recently, under the leadership of EigenLayer, AltLayer, and Renzo, LST and LRT have become popular again. In this field, another project worthy of attention is StakeStone.

StakeStoneIt is a one-stop full-chain LST staking protocol, benchmarked against Lido, which can bring native staking income and liquidity to Layer 2. It not only supports the head staking pool, but is also compatible with re-staking and will integrate EigenLayer. StakeStone supports ETH beacon chain re-pledge and LST re-pledge, aiming to become the leading protocol on the re-pledge track.

According to DefiLlama data, in just 3 weeks from December 15, 2023 to January 3, 2024, StakeStone TVL surged from US$4.17 million to US$542 million, and the current TVL is US$710 million. StakeStone is also deeply involved in Mantas incentive activities. Among Manta New Paradigms $900 million TVL, StakeStone provided $720 million in liquidity.

Taking stock of the 12 projects that are about to be airdropped, what are the other opportunities to participate?

StakeStones native LST is STONE, which has been officially upgraded to full-chain LRT. STONE is an OFT based on LayerZero, which can be seamlessly used in multi-chain liquidity markets through STONE-Fi, such as DEX, AMM, lending, stable coins, derivatives, GameFi, SocialFi, etc. STONE does not use a rebase mechanism, but is similar to Lidos wstETH in generating revenue. In other words, the number of STONE will not change with the changes in the income generated by ETH staking, but its value will increase with the increase in ETH staking income.

StakeStone has not issued coins yet, and the team is expected to launch airdrop-related activities. Currently, users can stake ETH in StakeStone and earn income from the STONE-Fi ecological protocol.

Kelp DAO

In the re-staking track, another popular project isKelp DAO, this is also a multi-chain liquidity staking platform. Its founder previously founded the liquidity staking protocol Stader Labs.

Users can re-pledge the above assets in exchange for rsETH. The reETH price is currently the base price of various rewards and pledged LST. rsETH can be used in other DeFi protocols.

Currently, Kelp DAO has launched Kelp Miles incentives. Kelp Miles are used to track users contributions to Kelp and are used to determine future reward distribution proportions. Kelp Miles depends on the users LST re-staking amount and the number of days of staking. Users who previously staked LST from December 12, 2023 to January 1, 2024 can receive 1.25x Kelp Miles in the next 3 months. Users who stake LST after January 1st will receive Kelp Miles rewards as usual.
