Airdrop Distribution

Purpose of the FundDrop: to incentivize participation in the bootstrapping of the DeFund Network

5% for testnet Validators

When running a blockchain, security is priority #1. Validators secure the network by making it harder for any one person/entity to control too much of the network and compromise the overall network’s safety. Here’s a helpful article on the Cosmos Hub website that goes into detail about what validators do for networks: https://hub.cosmos.network/main/validators/overview.html

10% for private testnet participants

Those who followed these instructions before the March 13, 2022 snapshot are eligible to participate in the private testnet. In order to become eligible for the private testnet airdrop portion, active participation in the private testnet is required. This portion of the airdrop is to reward our earliest DeFunders and initial testers of the network.

15% for public testnet participants

Just like the private testnet, the public testnet will reward those who are active participants in order to prepare DeFund for mainnet. The biggest difference is the public testnet is open to everyone and is intended to emulate the DeFund mainnet environment.

40% for stakers of ATOM, OSMO, and AKT (snapshot date TBA)

As previously mentioned, security is priority #1 for any blockchain. Those who help to secure the Cosmos Hub (ATOM), Osmosis (OSMO), and Akash (AKT) will be rewarded, as they are crucial to the success of DeFund as well.

At mainnet genesis, DeFund plans to utilize both Osmosis and the Cosmos Hub (potentially Crescent Network as well) to leverage the billions of dollars of liquidity living within these ecosystems. Also, DeFund hosts all frontend and software on Akash. DeFund plans to actively support and encourage the running of nodes/validators on Akash to promote maximum decentralization. As a result, we will be fairdropping 40% of the airdrop to stakers of Cosmos Hub (ATOM), Osmosis (OSMO), and Akash (AKT), as they are fundamental to the success of DeFund.

30% for DETF liquidity providers (snapshot to follow)

Having enough liquidity is necessary for the underlying assets of dETF’s to function, so those who provide liquidity to $DETF will be rewarded for doing so. Instructions for how to do this will be released on a later date.

Claims Process

In order to claim your full FundDrop*, once mainnet goes live:

  1. Go to defund.app
  2. Add DeFund to your Keplr wallet
  3. Buy or create one dETF**
  4. Provide liquidity into one of the available liquidity pools for $DETF (unlocks final 30% of your FundDrop)

*Validators will have airdrop distributed directly to the wallet address used during private/public testnet

**Upon completion of the first 3 steps listed, the first 70% of the FundDrop you will be eligible for will be unlocked. You must complete the first 3 steps to receive any portion of the FundDrop. Those who only connect their wallet and do not interact with the platform will not receive their airdrop. This is all in an effort to eliminate any bots, bad actors, or people who simply want to flip their airdropped portion upon receiving funds. This also has the intent to increase participation with the DeFund platform, and help users to learn all of the features that DeFund has to offer.

Approx. 3 months after the mainnet launch of the DeFund Network, any DETF that goes unclaimed from the initial airdrop will be redistributed back into the Community Pool to be used in future governance proposals.
