An airdrop is a term for a large-scale distribution of free cryptocurrency tokens into a digital community. It can provide a number of benefits to the creators of a cryptocurrency, including promotion and increasing the price of the token.[1] Some argue it's also a way of getting around the SEC's ruling that ICOs are securities; if digital assets are given away for free, they can't technically be considered securities. But the token still gets propagated, leading to large numbers of people adopting it for trade.[2] Airdrops can also come in the form of forks.[3]
