Airdrop Strategy: Aptos Edition 🪂

@aptoslabs is a new L1 blockchain, launched in 2021.

They received +350M in funding from the likes of FTX, Jump, a16z.

No token yet, but they plan to lauch $APT

On this thread: how to use Aptos, and 4 bonus no-token protocols to try!

🧵👇
On this thread, quick and easy:

• What is Aptos exactly
• How to participate in testnet and potentially get 500 $APT tokens
• How to install wallet (MM not supported)
• 4Birds1Stone to try on this new blockchain: @martian_wallet, @TopazMarket, @vialprotocol, @PontemNetwork
1/12

Aptos is a new blockchain focusing in scalability.

ROADMAP

Q1 2022: Developer testnet launch (March 15)
Q2 2022: Incentivized testnet launch (right now ⭐️)
Q3 2022: Mainnet launch (Sept-Oct)

Although in testnet, there are still things to try to get $APT & other airdrops
2/12

FUNDING

Aptos raised 350M from investors like @a16z, @circle_ventures, @jump_, @FTX_Official, @multicoincap, @apolloglobal

For comparison, Solana raised 25M before launch

This could be a big VC dump, so careful with hype when $APT starts trading in a few months
3/12

TECH

The team consists of people with ties to Diem/Novi, Facebook's dead crypto project.

They have their own programming language, called "Move", formerly used by @DiemAssociation.

Many Solana developers are allegedly fleeing to Aptos.

They claim to have 160K of TPS
4/12

INCENTIVIZED TESTNET 🪂

There will be 4 rounds of "Incentivized Testnets" where users can run a node and get $APT when the token launches.

Aptos recently concluded Incentivized Testnet Round #2, with 225 participants. Each of them is getting 500 $APT tokens.
5/12

INCENTIVIZED TESTNET 🪂

Registrations for round #3 open in August 15 📆

How does this work?

• Users register to participate in testnet
• They get accepted by the team
• They meet the requirements for the round (to be published)
• They get $APTOS when token launches
6/12

INCENTIVIZED TESTNET 🪂

If you are interested in participating, monitor their Medium or follow me @OlimpioCrypto, I will post as soon as #3 opens.

For context, these were the requirements for Testnet Round #2, which concluded last week.

APTOS PROTOCOLS

There are a few protocols to try on their testnet. They could also launch tokens in the future.

• Wallet: @martian_wallet (no token yet ⭐️) chrome.google.com/webstore/detai…

• Get $APT testnet tokens and let's start.

• Explorer: explorer.devnet.aptos.dev
8/12

@TopazMarket is an NFT marketplace. Aptos team minted 1M NFTs in an hour just to test the blockchain.

Strategy:

• Buy or create an NFT topaz.so/explore-collec…

Discord: discord.gg/Mp4u3nnPas

No token yet ⭐️
9/12

@vialprotocol is a lending protocol, similar to Compound or Aave.

Strategy:

• Lend/borrow assets vial.fi/app
• Get WBTC and USDC testnet tokens from vial.fi/tools

Discord: discord.gg/BVEKQnH9Es

No token yet ⭐️
10/12

@aptosnames is a name service provider, just like ENS. Now they are live on devnet.

Strategy:

• As simple as it seems: just go ahead and get an "name.aptos" on aptosnames.com. Names reset every week.

Discord: discord.gg/jazv2k4t2g

No token yet ⭐️
11/12

@PontemNetwork is a DEX, just like @Uniswap.

Strategy:

• Swap tokens on liquidswap.com

⚠️ Heads up, they don't support @martian_wallet, so you have to install theirs. I wonder why - @PontemNetwork a comment?

Discord: discord.gg/VVMZf96pWm
12/12

Other protocols to keep an eye on, that are NOT live on testnet yet: @ThalaLabs, @AptoSwap_org, @ultimaprotocol, @hippolabs__, @LaminarMarkets, @FewchaWallet, @econialabs, @ZaptosFinance

4Birds1Stone Airdrop Strategy 🪂

Four Crypto wallets that don't have a token yet: @Rabby_io, @SenderWallet, @phantom, @TallyCash

👇
A few important points before we start:

Most of the strategies described on this thread are the same... install, create a wallet, and make swaps.

I would not advise large amounts of tokens imported to wallets that aren't open source.
1/4

First, @Rabby_io - a crypto wallet with security notifications, made by @DeBankDeFi.

• Features: swaps, DApp pinning, widgets & more
• Airdrop status: "To be determined"
• Open source: Yes. github.com/RabbyHub

• Strategy: Make a swap using Rabby Swap Image

🔴 OPTIMISM MEGA THREAD v2 🔴

How to potentially get $OP:

• Governance participation (delegate)
• On-chain profile building (follow Optimism's quests)
• Alpha-research *protocols* that got $OP grants

These opportunities only exist in crypto. Take advantage 👇
1/11

It's really simpler than it looks:

• Optimism already published their first airdrop criteria
• Optimism confirmed that new airdrops will be launched
• We should complete these criteria in advance

100% speculation, but a good one in my opinion

community.optimism.io/docs/governanc…
2/11

"DAO-voter" was an airdrop 1 criteria. We could see consideration for those that care and delegate their $OP.

Delegate your existing $OP to olimpio.eth, I have 100% voting rate:

• Go to boardroom.io/optimism/deleg…
• Scroll down until you find me
• Delegate to olimpio.eth!

OPTIMISM QUESTS 🔴✨

Today, @optimismFND published their own series of Quests, similar to what @arbitrum has been doing

Users that complete Quests can get 18/18 Optimism NFTs

Note: 14% of $OP is still ready to be airdropped 🪂

Quests below 👇
1/6

There is no relation between these quests and any $OP future airdrop, this is speculation.

By performing these on-chain tasks you are getting to know the ecosystem and building your on-chain profile, something that we know helped with Optimism's past airdrop
2/6

This is how they work:

1. Go to app.optimism.io/quests
2. Pick a quest from the list
3. Complete the quiz (there is 1 quiz per quest)
4. Complete the quest (for example, LP on Hop)
5. Get the NFT via Galxe: galxe.com/Optimism/campa…

There are 18 quests to complete!

MONDAY AIRDROP STRATEGY: 5Birds1Stone 🪂

Today's birds: @ArrakisFinance, @AtlendisLabs, @SyndicateDAO, @rocifi, @0vixProtocol

What's the Strategy? Prepare USDC and start earning DeFi passive income, while potentially getting airdrops

Strategy time: 1hr

Let's start 👇
Quick Announcement 📢

I'm part of @earndrop_io's team

It's a site where you enter your wallet and it shows if you have airdrops to claim 🪂

Also, with a free account, you can monitor 2 wallets and receive emails as soon as new airdrops launch

Try it: earndrop.io
1/11

Let's start with @ArrakisFinance

• Arrakis is a protocol for automated LP liquidity management
• It's already used by @AaveAave, @OlympusDAO, @fraxfinance, and many other protocols
• They still do not have a token, and they might do an airdrop!

We might have been right about $INFURA

Today, @infura_io announced plans to decentralize its offerings (Web3 API services)

🦊 @MetaMask uses Infura to connect all wallets to Ethereum: both products are owned by Concensys

A thread on Infura's future 🧵

To address concerns that they are too centralized (@ChrisBlec, I know you'll like this as much as me, if done right)...

Infura announced plans to launch a decentralized infrastructure protocol early next year

(BTW, Infura is also used in IPFS, MATIC, STARK, OP, ARB, and more)
🕵️‍♂️

Right now, Infura collects wallet addresses and IP addresses from its users. This means that multiple wallets from the same entity could theoretically be linked

Also, they are hosted on AWS.

Their decentralization plan will co-exist with their existing centralized offerings

ETH MERGE 🐼✅

Congrats to the Ethereum community for their hard work all these years.

Record this moment - a few historic POAPs / Mints right now 👇
1.

Claim the 4th official Merge POAP by sending 10 USDC/DAI/RAI to stateful.eth address (Mainnet, Polygon, Arbitrum, or Optimism). I'd use Mainnet

No ETH accepted, 24hs to send

They will take 1-2 weeks to filter sybil attackers, so donate responsibly as you might get excluded
2.

@ConsenSys commemorative free NFT mint: consensys.net/merge

Marketplace: opensea.io/collection/mer…
