Wormhole Introduction

Wormhole is a generic message-passing protocol that lets users of cross-chain applications built by developers enjoy the benefits of multiple ecosystems.

It is primarily built for developers, so they can build dApps that allow deposits from any Wormhole-connected chain, increasing the liquidity their users can access.

It can also be ‌used by NFT projects to serve as the bridge between different voting chains in the community; most specifically, if a group of NFT collections on different networks wanted their holders to vote on a combined proposal, they could pick a “voting” chain using the protocol.

Lastly, it is beneficial for users who hold Ethereum-based tokens and want to use Solana-based dApps, as they can convert these tokens to be compatible with the Solana ecosystem. Note: and other network-based tokens also.

Update – Feb. 2024: Wormhole Airdrop Guide and Strategy

On February 7, 2024, Wormhole confirmed that it is launching its native token, $W, both an ERC-20 and SPL-compatible token. It has a maximum supply of 10 billion tokens and only 1.8 billion will be unlocked on its token event. The remaining locked tokens will be released per schedule over four years. 

As it launches its token, the tokenomics and the distribution information for $W were also released. 

And 17% of the total tokens, or 1.7 billion, are allocated for the token launch event and community rewards. 

During the token event, 1.1 billion $W will be unlocked while the remaining tokens will be unlocked four months later. 

The initial phase, which was expected to start alongside the token launch, will include a TGE-related airdrop and rewards programs. 

“The Community has been allocated 17% of the token supply. Wormhole wouldn’t be possible without a thriving community of supporters. The snapshot for this airdrop has been taken before the publishing of this blog,” the team explained.

However, Wormhole did not specify how to be eligible for its upcoming airdrop. The community still speculates that those who earned enough points for its Zealy Quests, used Wormhole’s bridge functionality, and early users are qualified. 

The team also stressed that they have already recorded the eligible wallets for the airdrop and are set to distribute the rewards in the upcoming months.
