Are there any official statements on what criteria will be used for Airdrop Round 2?
If not, what are you all’s educated guesses on such criteria?
I think there should be at least a few different criteria that make users eligible that do not require a person to have funds to begin with. I think allowing people without initial funds to become eligible will increase the number of people who would subsequently join the community. It seems unfair for the only criteria to involve users to spend/have $100 or more to begin with.
In my opinion, the criteria for an airdrop should not be obvious and the goal behind it is clearly to reward real supporters of the blockchain. After we had a lot of airdrops on other platforms lately, a community emerged that uses the new blockchains solely for collecting airdrops, so the motivation behind most of the participants in the Optimism-Quest is just t farm a potential airdrop. Therefore I would rate the interaction done during this time less than the subsequent one, since only people who really use the blockchain are rewarded and will also not make a quick profit out of the airdrop put rather hold it for the long term.
Growing a community requires several types of people: developers, users, and governors. I would recommend incentivizing people based on what kind of function is provided and the stage of the community. Now it’s an early stage of the community. As a result, If OP wants to attract more developers to fix bugs, build apps, or refine the infrastructures, the developing activities, such as bounty solved, apps built, etc, will have more weight on the airdrop. If OP wants to grow the number of users, users will be incentivized. In that case, the number of transactions and amount, quest event, and any activities related to users should be recorded. Lastly, governors will be valued if the users vote, comment, and provide valuable opinions.
now the airdrop happened already and I have to say that it made compleet sense to reward delegation and active Voters. but the only think is that rewarding by transaction fees you will automatically reward too many bots who are just set up for this. Even if the 20 minimum is probably filtering allot of bots out. so all in all a great airdrop
Thanks for OP-airdrop #2. Will there be an airdrop for governance snapshot voters who didn’t delegate their tokens and voted on their own?
Everyone who voted actively in a snapshot vote should receive an airdrop because they showed active participation in the governance.
Currently only governance participants who delegated their tokens to someone else or to your own received an allocation
Yes, I know that now but I voted on my own from the beginning on every proposal and didn’t qualify. It doesn’t make sense delegates have a higher priority in the DAO than everyone else who voted on Snapshot
