Welcome to bulliscoming media, as there’s a proliferation of Airdrops in the crypto and blockchain space, Evmos airdrop has stood to be one of the best airdrops of the year among others.
The airdrop model is compelling and intriguing, thus, many crypto enthusiasts (notably Ethereum and Cosmos users) have been eager and curious to know how to claim Evmos airdrop.
However, what is most important is to know if you’re eligible to claim Evmos airdrop. In this article, I will let you know if you’re eligible and also walk you through the step-by-step guide to claiming Evmos airdrop.
But before then, it’s crucial to know the initiative behind the Evmos airdrop and also more insight into what the Evmos ecosystem is all about.
What Is Evmos?
Evmos is coined from the two words “EVM” (Ethereum Virtual Machine) and Cosmos. Evmos is a scalable, high-throughput Proof-of-Stake blockchain that is fully compatible and enables interoperability with Ethereum. It’s built using the Cosmos SDK which runs on top of the Tendermint Core consensus engine.
Evmos allows for running vanilla Ethereum as a Cosmos application-specific blockchain. This allows developers to have all the desired features of Ethereum, while at the same time, benefiting from Tendermint’s PoS implementation.
Evmos allows Ethereum developers to port their existing protocol over into the Cosmos ecosystem.
Also, because it is built on top of the Cosmos SDK, it will be able to exchange value with the rest of the Cosmos Ecosystem through the Inter Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC).
The initiative behind Evmos airdrop is simply to reward users who supported the Evmos smart contract platform in the Cosmos ecosystem (notably ATOM and OSMO participants).
But Evmos wants to broaden its reach by giving incentives to any Ethereum users who have got rekt by fees or bad projects.
This airdrop event is named “rekt drop” thus, anyone that has interacted and made a transaction (getting rekt by fees to execute a transaction) in the Ethereum and Cosmos ecosystem will be rewarded.
