DYdX Airdrop is building an open platform for advanced cryptofinancial products, powered by the Ethereum blockchain. They’re building a powerful and professional exchange for trading cryptoassets where users can truly own their trades and, eventually, the exchange itself.
Dydx is airdropping their new governance token “DYDX” to various historical users of the platform. A total of 75,000,000 DYDX has been allocated to eligible users. The snapshot was taken on July 26th, 2021 at 00:00:00 UTC of users who have traded on dYdX protocols (perpetual, margin, spot) on Layer 2 or Layer 1 or deposited funds into dYdX’s borrow/supply pools. Eligible users need to achieve certain trading milestones to unlock the rewards.
DYdX Airdrop is a governance token that allows the dYdX community to truly govern the dYdX Layer 2 Protocol (“the protocol”). By enabling shared control of the protocol, DYDX allows traders, liquidity providers, and partners of dYdX to work collectively towards an enhanced Protocol.
DYDX enables a robust ecosystem around governance, rewards, and staking — each designed to drive future growth and decentralization of dYdX, resulting in a better experience for users. Staking pools are designed to promote liquidity and safety on the Protocol. Rewards programs for trading, liquidity providing, and past usage of dYdX will help drive growth and adoption of dYdX.
If you’re eligible, then you will see your rewards under “Allocation”.
Users who have traded on dYdX protocols (perpetual, margin, spot) on Layer 2 or Layer 1 or deposited funds into dYdX’s borrow/supply pools by the snapshot time are eligible for the airdrop.
The snapshot was taken on July 26, 2021, at 00:00:00 UTC.
