Base Airdrop and Ecosystem Guide

Centralized exchanges are considered “centralized” because a profiting entity controls its operations. 

But these centralized exchanges are now also being known for producing their own blockchains and non-custodial wallets—more aligned to the blockchain’s goal of decentralization. 

One prime example is Coinbase, which now has its own blockchain and web3 wallet.

“To bring in billions of users to the cryptoeconomy, dapps need to be easier, cheaper, and safer to interact with. For this to happen, we need to make it even easier for developers to build these dapps,” Coinbase promoted. 

Moreover, one of the advantages of the L2 is that dapp developers that will use Base can utilize Coinbase’s products, users, and tools, as promised by the international exchange: 

“Seamless Coinbase product integrations, easy fiat onramps, and powerful acquisition tools enable developers to serve the 110M+ verified users and to access $80B assets on platform in the Coinbase ecosystem.” 

Consequently, the exchange expressed to make the blockchain as a “bridge,” where users can access the Ethereum network and the L2s built on it. 

“Decentralization is essential for the cryptoeconomy to remain open, global, and accessible to everyone. While we’ve begun incubating Base inside of Coinbase, we are deeply committed to progressing towards full decentralization over the years ahead,” the developers assured. 

“It’s an easy-to-use default onchain experience with access to products on other chains. Along with making Base interoperable with other chains, we will continue supporting as many chains as possible across Coinbase products.”

The Coinbase Wallet

The Coinbase exchange, which is the app itself (https://www.coinbase.com/), is a centralized exchange with a built-in hot custodial wallet. 

The Coinbase Wallet (https://www.coinbase.com/wallet/downloads)  is a non-custodial web3 wallet, which means that users own the wallet by holding their seed phrases and can be used to store both crypto and NFTs. 

Coinbase Wallet can be used in almost all EVM-compatible dapps. It also has an in-app dapp browser, where users can choose dapps that they can explore, including liquidity protocols, decentralized exchanges, and even a DAO. 

The Airdrop: Will Base or Coinbase Wallet Launch Native Token Soon?

The Coinbase team has repeatedly stressed that they still have no plans to issue a token for the Base Network or the Coinbase Wallet. 

However, the community is still speculating, especially since both Base and Coinbase Wallet are gaining popularity right now. 

For the Coinbase Wallet, it has an active “Quests” feature. Basically, since it has an in-app dapp browser, some dapps offer quests, like swapping tokens, delegating, minting NFTs, staking, and more. In return, those who finish quests will earn crypto or NFTs. 

The community is looking forward to this feature as it looks like an airdrop campaign. And once the wallet launches its own token, bigger quest rewards can be expected. 

Meanwhile, for Base, there is still no hint as to whether a rewards campaign might happen. So the community is still speculating that once it launches its own token, those who will use Base’s bridge feature can earn rewards. 

To use the “Bridge” feature: 

  • Step 1: Go to https://bridge.base.org/deposit
  • Step 2: Connect an Ethereum Wallet. 
  • Step 3: Deposit funds—from Ethereum to Base. 
  • Step 4: Confirm transaction. 

The Base Ecosystem: Will An Airdrop Happen Soon?

Take note that this list does not guarantee that they will host an airdrop campaign soon.
