Nowadays there is no one left who has never heard of cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Some people compare the importance cryptocurrencies and origin of the Internet. But for most people, the acquisition of a cryptocurrency seems to be some complicated adventure. In this article we will tell you that in fact everything is simplier.
What is airdrop cryptocurrency?
This word in the army means air support from ground assault, providing it with weapons and food. What does all this have to do with crypto currencies? More often than not, airdrops are satisfied with projects that are just entering the market, and the distribution of small amounts in tokens helps to increase its popularity.
Similar distributions of coins exist since the appearance of crypto-currency. Can you imagine that once crypto-enthusiasts handed out the most important crypto currency – Bitcoin completely free? Yes it is! In 2010, the programmer Gavin Andersen, who is now the leading developer of the project Bitcoin, created the so-called crane, which distributed to all comers by 5 (!) Bitcoins in the hands completely free! You can read about this in more detail in Nathaniel Popper’s book Digital Gold: The Incredible History of Bitcoin. There are such cranes now, but unfortunately they distribute the smallest bits of bitcoin there, Satoshi, named after Satoshi Nakamoto, the main mysterious creator of Bitcoin.
Today the crypto-currency market by the standards of history is very young and unstable, in fact, it makes its first steps, no one knows what will happen to the crypto-currencies in 5-10 years, and which currency will lead the hit-parades for capitalization (amounts of funds invested) in the future.

Another case is the substitution of purse addresses. The addresses of the purses look like this: 0x3Ec742801fa9120Ba91263b3E775bEb36DDb104A.
