How to get 500 $APTOS

Aptos is a new L1 blockchain that is launching this year.

Tomorrow, Aug 19, there's an opportunity to participate in what they call an "incentivized testnet"

How does this work? you run a node for 10 days, and then you get 500 $APTOS when they launch.

Aptos is currently on testnet. As opposed to mainnet, it means that it has not fully launched yet.

You can install a wallet and interact with the testnet blockchain, but money/tokens are not real.

If you are unfamiliar with Aptos, here's a thread I made

As part of all of this testing, they are incentivizing node operations.

People can register to run a node (usually in AWS, Azure, etc)

Two "Aptos Incentivized Testnet" rounds have already been done, this is AIT-3.

Registrations open tomorrow, Aug 19. Not everyone enters
The Aptos team selects the eligible participating nodes at their discretion.

For context, here is the criteria that was used for AIT2 (criteria for AIT3 is not out yet)

- Diversity (Geographic / Hosting Provider)
- Reputation
- Protocol Success Alignment
- Technical Competency
I won't be explaining how to run a node here on this thread.

Everything you need and detailed instructions are here:

AIT-2 Highlights:…

This is complex to do, but could be rewarding. And using low capital:

Running an Aptos node for 10 days could cost 20-350 USD

500 $APTOS token rewards went to successful node operators (AIT-1/2), however these can be worth anything - that's the risk

This was the alpha ⚡️

Airdrop Strategy #29: RabbitLens 🐰🌿

An opportunity to:

• get a .lens profile if you don't have one (no token)
• interact with @rabbithole_gg (no token)
• interact with @ourZORA (no token)
• interact with @prtyDAO (no token)

Save it for later or get started 👇

What is Rabbithole?

It's a platform that lets users complete web3 "Quests". For example: mint this NFT, swap this token...

When a Quest is completed, the user gets a reward. It could be: an NFT, POAP, crypto token...

In this case, the reward is an NFT, and a Lens profile

The Quest we are going to do requires us to interact with several protocols:

@ourZORA, @prtyDAO, @viamirror, @rabbithole_gg, and @lensterxyz.

Except maybe Mirror, none of them has a token yet.

Might be useful to interact with them in case they launch one 🪂

Regarding ETHPoW: An Ethereum hard fork could be on the horizon.

Yesterday a made a thread on what it could mean.

This is a follow-up:

(i) what is a hard fork
(ii) risks of interacting with a forked chain
(iii) what happens with L2s?
(iv) why would a hard fork happen?

This is the original thread, in case you missed it.


Spanish version:

Let's go through a hard-fork.

What happens? Someone takes a chain and replicates it

Anyone can do this. If I download Ethereum (1TB) and set up a few independent nodes, then I forked it

If people don't recognize/use my fork, then all assets = 0, it's just a 1TB text file

An Ethereum Hard Fork is coming. You might want to:

• Maximize on-chain ETH for when it happens (withdraw from CEXes)
• Take an ETH loan
• Dump all PoW assets for ETHPoW
• Have a ready-to-go account on the greedy exchanges supporting the sh*t-chain

Thread on ETHPoW 🧙‍♂️👇

If you were here for BCH/BTG Bitcoin forks, then you know these were amongst the first airdrops in history 🪂


Bitcoin Cash (BCH) - Mkt cap: 2B. Price: $140
Bitcoin Gold (BTG) - Mkt cap: 500M. Price: $30

BTC price: $24,000

BCH, BTG and BTC have the same supply, 21M

When the merge happens and ETH transitions to POS, there will be two chains. POW and POS.

Miners will try and get the last breath of value before selling their hardware:

They will keep the POW Ethereum alive, effectively hard-forking the blockchain.

Airdrop Strategy: TheKraken 🐙

There's a new NFT AMM player in town: @sudoswap

No token yet, but $SUDO coming 🪂

• it works with liquidity pools
• you add liquidity (NFT/ETH)
• earn trading fees
• place limit buy/sell orders

A breakdown: how it works and how to try it 🧵

Sudoswap, by @0xmons and team, was born as an OTC tool for NFT trading. Built on top of 0x protocol.

You can still use the old product:

We are here, though, to talk about the new sudoAMM. It supports concentrated liquidity provision for NFTs.

Sudoswap is planning on releasing the $SUDO token.

Details about this at the end of the thread

A Megathread on @optimismFND 🔴

+30,000,000 $OP tokens have been airdropped to multiple different protocols

• How to earn some of those 30M $OP
• What protocols got/will get an $OP airdrop to distribute 🪂
• Governance updates

Several opportunities in a bear market

On this thread:

1. Info you can use to get $OP right now (via high farming APRs or via potential airdrops)

2. Info you can use in the future when more protocols receive their $OP share

If you don't have time to get to it right now, like the first tweet and read it later ⚡️

Optimism governance works in phases. After a governance discussion in forums, proposals go to Snapshot where delegates (like myself) vote

Voting cycle 1: Jun 9 - Jun 22
Voting cycle 2: Jun 23 - Jul 6
Voting cycle 3: Jul 7 - Jul 20
Voting cycle 4: Jul 21 - Aug 3 ⭐️
