What is Airdrop?

An airdrop is a marketing tactic used in the cryptocurrency industry to raise awareness of a new virtual currency by distributing coins or tokens to wallet addresses.

Usually, limited quantities of the new virtual currency are transferred for free or in exchange for a small service, like retweeting a post from the business issuing it, to the wallets of active members of the blockchain community. While some airdrops are legal, others have been accused of being dishonest or deceptive.
