Airdrop FAQs

Airdrop 1 - Early Adopter Airdrop FAQs

What is Early Adopters Airdrop?

This airdrop is the first stage of Verida's Community Rewards program. It is to reward early participants in Verida’s Missions program. You can read the full announcement here and check your eligibility directly on Verida Missions.

What do I need to do to receive the Early Adopters Airdrop?

The Early Adopters Airdrop is limited to accounts having earned a minimum of 50 XP points on Verida Missions before March 21st 2024 (21-03-2024 00:00 UTC). Other restrictions may apply as mentioned in the Terms and Conditions.

As the completed activities are privately secured on the Verida Network for each accounts, Verida itself doesn't know about this information.

To receive the airdrop, Verida first requires users to register for the Airdrop by proving their eligibility, ie. sending the information about the completed activities to Verida's server to be cryptographically checked against the DID. Head to Verida Missions now to prove your eligibility.

I am eligible for the Early Adopter Airdrop, what do I need to do now?

A claim window will open soon whereby eligible users can claim their VDA Airdrop allocation. Some restrictions may apply for residents of certain jurisdictions. Please stay tuned for more information on how the VDA claim process will work.

I have not migrated my account from Testnet to Mainnet, can I still be eligible for the Airdrop?

The Airdrop claim process will require your account to be on mainnet.

The Acacia Testnet has been shutdown on April 13th 2024, it is no longer possible to migrate your Testnet account to Mainnet.

If you did migrate to Mainnet, know that all XP points earned (ie. the activity has been completed) prior to the eligibility date (March 21st 2024) will be counted for the Airdrop, regardless of whether the XP points were earned when on the Verida Testnet or Mainnet.

The migration had transfered your Verida Missions activities completion and related XP points across to your new Mainnet account. If you migrated after March 21st, there is no difference, the eligibility being based on the completion date of the activities.

Verida Missions says I am not eligible to the Early Adopters Airdrop, what can I do?

This means you do not satisfy the criteria for this Airdrop. Either you didn't earn the minimum of 50 XP points before the eligibility date (March 21st 2024) or you didn't satisfy the other criteria mentioned in the T&Cs.

If you are new to Verida or have just started participating on Verida Missions (after March 21st 2024), welcome! Please stay around to hear about potential future rewards.

How many DIDs are eligible for the Early Adopters Airdrop? How many tokens will each eligible Early Adopters Airdrop user get?

There were 22,500 accounts on the Verida Mainnet and 33,291 accounts on the Verida Acacia testnet as of March 21st 2024. All these accounts are eligible for the Early Adopters Airdrop provided they satisfy the criteria mentioned above.

Aligned with our focus on privacy, all XP points accrual and other Verida Missions data is private to each account. As a result, Verida cannot know the exact number of accounts eligible to the Airdrop until all users have proven their eligibility and registered (be sure to follow the process to prove your eligibility). As a result, the total amount of VDA rewards allocated per account will vary based on the total number of eligible and registered accounts.

Accounts not eligible and/or with higher XP points amounts should stay connected to learn more about Verida’s Network Growth Reward Program. More details on the XP to VDA conversion and claim process will be announced soon.

General Airdrop FAQs

Are you only airdropping 1M VDA tokens?

As the Verida Network is private, we have no insight into how many users are ultimately eligible to claim based on their XP points. 1M VDA is a starting point and we reserve the right to increase this initial allocation.

There are over 200M VDA tokens set aside for community rewards, to be distributed over time and via a variety of incentive and reward programs. This is just the initial airdrop and beginning of the launch of the Verida Network Growth program. Learn more on the growth rewards in the Verida Whitepaper.

What is the VDA reward distribution date for winners of Verida community campaigns?

The reward distribution date and claim process for winners of the Verida Server Boost and Banner campaigns and Verida Network AMA Series will be announced post-TGE.

Will Verida’s Galxe OAT holders and Zealy participants be included in the Early Adopters Airdrop?

The Early Adopters Airdrop is the initial element of Verida’s Community Rewards program and is focused specifically on rewarding early participants of Verida Missions which provided valuable learnings and feedback to the Verida team.

The larger Community Rewards program is expected to include other cohorts of the Verida community, including Galxe OAT holders and Zealy users in additional airdrops that are under development.

Details of future Airdrops and other rewards campaigns will be announced. Follow Verida’s Twitter / blog / mailing list for official announcements.
