DRiP account holders can sign up for the airdrop for free with an invite code or join for 0.1 SOL on their wallet balance.
The airdrop, processed in real-time, was covered by DRiP for gas fees, and the collectibles were tagged to indicate their origin within users’ wallets.
Airdrops are free giveaways of tokens or NFTs to users of specific blockchains or protocols within the crypto space. Users usually need to take some type of action to manually claim the tokens, which are then transferred to the user’s own wallet.
The tokens may or may not have any monetary value on the secondary market, but affiliation with celebrities like Bryan Johnson undeniably helps bring awareness about the airdrop.
