Watch Out For These Scams While You Want To Earn Airdrops!
When the popular platform Uniswap said that it will distribute its own token as a reward (airdrop) to users who have made any transactions on the platform before September 1, so to speak, the ‘airdrop’ rush has resumed and it did not take long for us to return to 2017 as a mainstream movement. .
Just like in 2017, the gift of 400 UNI tokens (up to $ 3500 in value at its highest level) surprised the cryptocurrency market, and while some people were taking advantage of this award; Many people regretted that they did not use it due to high transaction fees and could not get the reward.
Get Ready for the New Stream: Airdrops
While the Uniswap frenzy has already taken a break, the current it is driving after has created the expectation in many users that there may be a new wave of airdrops and that other tokens will follow that wave. The most recent example of this was that Tron would gift tokens for its new wallet. For this reason, as it will be seen for a few days in the crypto money community; Many people share reference code and links, advertise airdrops. The prominent names of the cryptocurrency community did not neglect to warn investors on this issue.
Ali İlhan, one of the founders of the mobile game company EvoxGames, shared the following on the subject:
“DO NOT PAY or KYC in any way to sites that provide airdrops. All you have to do is type your metamask eth address and wait, do not do anything extra. After Uniswap, the profiteering crew is back again, please be careful. ”
Another prominent name of the community, ‘Tobby Kitty’ with the username on Twitter, stated that there may be dangerous situations and made the following comments:
“I’ve never chased an Airdrop in my life. I passed it, never threw anything with Ref link. Skip all of them, I haven’t even bought or sold ashes from any stock exchange except 1-2 inventory stock. You send me a link because of Uni, you suggest the exchange, I understand, but you are in dangerous waters.
Now, you are giving an identity to these trash exchanges .. Don’t do it. Uni developed spontaneously. He did not say I will give you airdrop, come do business with me. That’s why it was priced. Do not expect help from newly grown places. When going to Dimyat for rice, don’t be the bulgur at home. “
