Here are some of the links that you’ll need to participate in the Shardeum airdrop.
For the full guide, you can refer to my video here:
#1 Adding Shardeum to Metamask
The good thing about Shardeum is that it is an EVM-compatible network, so you can use Chainlist to add this network right away.
There are 3 different versions of the Shardeum network, and it will be best to add Shardeum Liberty 2.X and Sphinx 1.X, as Sphinx is the latest version, while some decentralised applications (DApps) are still using Liberty 2.X.
#2 Claiming Testnet SHM
You can follow the guides on Shardeum’s documentation to claim your testnet tokens on the different networks.
You will need to join Shardeum’s Discord channel, and claim the testnet tokens using the various faucets.
There is a command you can type, and you should receive the testnet tokens in the wallet address that you’ve provided.]
#3 Performing Swaps
You can use the SHM tokens that you’ve received to swap them on Swapped Finance.
The interface is similar to any other decentralised exchange (DEX) that you’ve used before on other networks like Ethereum or Polygon.
I tried using the Sphinx network, but Swapped Finance currently does not support it, so you will need to swap tokens on the Liberty network instead.
Apart from swapping tokens, you can add liquidity as well.
All of these will help you to qualify for the potential airdrop, especially if it requires you to interact with multiple smart contracts.
#4 Purchasing a .shm domain
You can purchase a .shm domain which is similar to the likes of Space ID, Unstoppable Domains or ENS.
These domains can be purchased on the Polygon network, and cost around 8 MATIC.
Once Shardeum’s mainnet is live, your domain NFT will be migrated to the mainnet.
The last activity you can do is the various social activities on Shardeum’s Crew3 page.
These social tasks can be rather simple, including following Shardeum on Twitter, as well as joining Telegram and Discord communities.
These are just some of the activities that you can perform to qualify for the future airdrop. None of these are guaranteed, but since this is free, why not give it a shot!
Do you find it overwhelming to track all of the different airdrops that are available?
I’ve created an airdrop tracker of all the different networks and projects that I’m keeping an eye on,
and you can gain access to it by signing up for my Substack newsletter! The link to this Notion site will be included in the welcome email.
