Airdrops are a great marketing tactic used by various cryptocurrency projects to increase liquidity and adoption, as well as drive Google traffic. Some projects drop tokens into your accounts without being prompted, while others, arguably more legit ones, require you to register on a specific website and maybe go through a KYC procedure as well.
A notable example is the Ontology airdrop which occurred earlier this year and happened for everyone who subscribed to their newsletter in time. All subscribers got 1000 tokens plus 10% of their NEO amount in ONT dropped into their addresses, and at a current price of almost $8, down from an all-time high of $10.50, a lot of people got $8,000-$10,000+ for no more than a newsletter signup.
Let’s take a quick look at five airdrop projects you can sign up for today which may or may not be the next Ontology in your portfolio!
1. Profede (1. Profede)
Profede is a tool for independent professionals looking for freelance or permanent work which lets both businesses and individuals cut down on fees by paying intermediaries less (hiring referral fees can climb to many thousands of dollars) and individuals more.
You can read about the project on their website, or sign up for their airdrop via this link.
2. OPU (2. OPU)
A project touching on my area of expertise, OPU is a project aiming to tokenize skincare management. While many medical ICO projects exist, this one is specific in that it aims to make blockchain-based sharing of skin condition issues a possibility, allowing for machine learning on a wider variety of samples for automated detection, targeting for advertisement and clinical trials, and most of all, user control over their own data. Instead of relying on one platform to keep it safe, users can sell their skin data for OPU tokens.
OPU是一个涉及我的专业领域的项目，旨在使皮肤护理管理具有象征意义。 尽管存在许多医疗ICO项目，但该项目的特定之处在于它旨在使基于区块链的皮肤状况问题共享成为可能，从而允许在更广泛的样本上进行机器学习以进行自动检测，针对广告和临床试验以及最重要的是，用户可以控制自己的数据。 用户可以依靠OPU令牌出售其皮肤数据，而不必依靠一个平台来保证其安全。

3. Etherc.io (3. Etherc.io)
Etherc.io is a new decentralized exchange on the Ethereum blockchain which aims to put control fully into the hands of users with gas-free trading.
Many will remember the Binance coin when it first came out – it was in the sub-dollar price, whereas now it’s not uncommon to see it above $10. Exchange coins are popular because they offer a good hedging mechanism in times of volatility, and because they’re highly liquid.

4. ARAW (4. ARAW)
The ARAW token is a “Decentralized Payment for E-Commerce Ecosystem”. It’s mission is to enable users to send and receive crypto payments easily, including microtransactions, contactless payments in stores through their own cards, end-to-end solutions for end users and merchants, and a whole ecosystem surrounding the need for a business to start accepting payments in whatever currency they choose. The token will be an in-between medium of exchange from currency to currency, fostering liquidity.
ARAW代币是“电子商务生态系统的分散付款”。 其使命是使用户能够轻松地发送和接收加密支付，包括微交易，通过自己的卡进行的商店中的非接触式支付，针对最终用户和商家的端到端解决方案以及围绕业务启动的整个生态系统接受他们选择的任何货币付款。 代币将成为货币之间的一种中间交换媒介，从而促进流动性。

5.爱神 (5. AITHEON)
Aitheon aims to bridge the robot-human gap by providing a dynamic marketplace of skilled robot operators and AI trainers and robotic workers. Think of it as a community-powered robot-training-ground where people help companies operate and train their robots, and those workers are paid with Aitheon tokens.
You can read about other utilities of this token over on their website, but in the meantime, go ahead and sign up for the airdrop on this link – it’ll require passing a KYC process, but that also gives the project much more legitimacy.
