Commonly understood to be a marketing stunt, airdrops are an approach to distribution used by startup crypto-asset projects looking to attract some attention. A method of distributing cryptocurrency in which market participants do not need to exchange their existing assets for a new one; but rather receive it based on some prerequisite factors (such as holding a parallel cryptocurrency).

Majority of the time participants in airdrops do not need to go out of their way to procure the new assets; the assets are either given out entirely for free or in return for some kind of social activity (tweeting, following, etc). However, some of the time, “AirDrops” can happen unintentionally due to chain-splits (also known as Hard-Forks)
