A new way to airdrop
The dynamics of the Opendao Airdrop are different from others that have been organized before. This is the opinion of Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who praised the way this particular airdrop was organized. He specified:
OK – b4 start all VC puzzles…. these airdrops (like $ ENS before it) flip script about how EVERYONE will value their time + spend online👉 you will finally be rewarded with 4. There are incentives that I (as a founder / investor) love to bring into the COMMUNITY so that everything works.
