Aiming to reward and encourage loyalty, Saga, a protocol for automatically provisioning application-specific blockchains, announced its Community Genesis Airdrop, which will reward those who used the platforms associated with Saga during the “frigid crypto winter.”
(Since this article was first written, Saga has expanded airdrop rewards to partner games on Avalanche, Polygon, and Solana.)

Saga Airdrop Overview
Saga is known for offering products that allow developers to launch their own dedicated blockchain, or Chainlet, “as easy as deploying a smart contract,” built on top of Cosmos blockchain. It is also focused on crypto gaming and is set to launch its own mainnet.
“As we open 2024 and get ever closer to Saga Mainnet, we are unveiling the eligibility criteria for Saga’s general community airdrop, the last major component of our genesis airdrop. All snapshots have been taken,” the team wrote.
Moreover, Saga’s utility token, $SAGA, is also set to be a form of membership into “a community with a shared set of values.” It will also be used for securing the Mainnet through staking and for transaction fees in paying for Chainlets, according to the protocol’s developers:
“In the world of crypto, loyalty is defined by active engagement in a community and taking a long-term view of an ecosystem. Therefore, for Saga’s token generation event (TGE) distribution, we are targeting loyal stakers and users of our closest tech partners, as demonstrated by their activity through the toughest crypto bear environment.”
In 2023, Saga announced its partnership with Celestia, Polygon, and Avalanche, with the aim of adopting the technologies offered by these networks.
Saga Genesis Airdrop Details
This is not the first time that Saga has been involved in an airdrop. In December 2023, the protocol launched Saga Advent, the first season of its Play-to-Airdrop program with daily tournaments for 25 days.
Meanwhile, this will be the first community airdrop of the platform. The airdrop will give away $SAGA tokens to the communities of Cosmos, Celestia, Polygon, and Avalanche.
“As a sign of appreciation to those projects who believed in the Saga technology and mission, certain members of the Celestia, Polygon, and Avalanche communities will be receiving an airdrop of genesis $SAGA tokens,” the team emphasized.
The following are eligible:
- For the Cosmos community, those that increased their stake from 04/20/2023 to 10/20/2023 or had more than 25 $ATOM staked on 10/20/2023.
- For the Celestia community, those that staked more than 23 $TIA on 12/01/2023.
- For the Polygon community, those that staked more than 300 $MATIC on 10/20/2023 or wallets that bridged more than 0.4 $ETH using the ZKEVM bridge.
- For the Avalanche community, those that staked $AVAX on 04/20/2023 or 10/20/2023.
Moreover, the genesis community airdrop also marks the beginning of Season 2 of Saga’s Play-to-Airdrop program. The program will last until February, according to the developers.
To qualify, join the tournaments on the games building cross-chain between Saga and its three partners. Saga will run tournaments for five games with each of its partners. The leaderboards per tournament will receive $SAGA as a reward. To be updated on which games will host a tournament, follow Saga on X, and join their community on Discord and Telegram.
Lastly, Saga will also be having tournaments for developers and builders in the space. Up until February, the team said that they would run about two or three tournaments where the Pegasus Testnet, Saga’s main product, would be open for stress testing.
