Thank you for your suggestions. I think these are reasonable criteria for landing and preventing Sybil attacks. I especially agree with using Starknet bridge and rewarding node owners as they contribute significantly to testing and maintaining Starknet network . However,I have some questions about taking pictures of balances and registering participants of forum . How would you verify that these pictures are authentic and not manipulated? And how would you ensure that forum participants are genuine users and not bots or fake accounts? I would appreciate your clarification on these points.
Just wanna say, consider all assets across all chains, don’t just focus on the balance, cuz I’m an NFT collector, and I’d like to turn every penny into an NFT, so my balance is usually pretty low, lol.
I think it would be a mistake to give beta users airdrops, although beta is an important part, but there are a lot of witches
Applications on Starknet are very inconsistent and a terrible experience. SWAP transactions are a failure, and when it comes to actual STARKNET users, this should be decided when the actual STARKNET platform is less glitchy and fully functional.
for my view, nowdays it is not a very good time to airdrop:1) The TVL and the eco apps are relative small. 2) the User Experience is not very good in the mainnet, as the gas is not cheap compared with arbitrum or optimism. So the team may consider launch the token next year, with multiple rounds airdrops to attract more users in starknet.
You all done a terrific job and had a good proposal. Yet, over-examination might be detrimental. Apt’s success is not what it should be. I think it’s important to get active in the community for more than just the short term.
It is very necessary for the community to maintain users and continue to increase the community physique. There is no need to separate them because of a group of people who suddenly entered, because there are also our loyal fans.
I agree with you and would like to express my opinion about nodes. In general, the trend of nodes rolls downhill (for some unknown reason, many projects do not notice these enthusiasts who love linux, team side, and pay attention to the project in the early stages of renting servers and take all the expenses on themselves, including money and their time. Yes you can sit and write bots and make them testnet, but who will maintain the network?, Noders certainly, but for some reason they often do it for free to the detriment of themselves, their means, and their time. I really hope that Pokt StarkNet won’t ignore nameders and will set the trend for nameders and will show that nameders are still needed for this market. Thank you for the offer, I have been supporting StarkNet with uninterrupted work since the first days.
Worth checking out these post. Vote for or against this proposal.
[PROPOSAL] [VOTE ON POLL] Using testnet as multiplier too with mainnet interactions
Your assertion here is biased and does not hold water!
Airdrop should be fair and not for set of people…
You think supporting a project is just by bridging one or two times on mainnet. How about folks that make transactions on the project building on the starknet
Don’t you know that they are the real user!..
I don’t recommend sending airdrops, I recommend that people buy them publicly
It’s not very easy now. There may be problems with SEC
I think you need to focus on on-chain activity, select a certain number of users who have made the greatest contribution to the starknet, actions on the test network and other original activities can serve as a multiplier, it will not work to calculate sybil accounts by biased opinions
Has there been an official announcement confirming the airdrop?
Regarding your opinion on the airdrop for Gitcoin donators/voting/stake holders/multi-signal safe in other networks, you make a valid point that those who interact with the Starknet network should be encouraged and rewarded, as they are the ones who will benefit the most from the network’s capabilities. Providing airdrops to those who make a lot of transactions on the main network may not be as beneficial to those with smaller banks who cannot afford high gas fees on the main network. Overall, it’s great to see that you are thinking critically about how to effectively incentivize and reward those who contribute to the development and growth of the Starknet network.
For users, it is currently difficult to use, so I think it should be airdropped to starknet users.
Whether it is op or arbitrum, we should learn from their airdrop method, which is the mainstream distribution method.
Perhaps sometimes in our enthusiasm in sharing ideas and moving forward, we may be distracted and forget the key elements. Airdrop should just be simple, fun, purposeful and wide. After all, decentralization is key.
Simple - because that’s how projects should be. Making life simple in our environment
Fun - filled with activities, communications and lots of engagements, like here, now
Purposeful - lots of test, use, failures (brings about successes), discussions, trials and learning tools (articles, foundations, videos, media, forums and chats)
Wide - because we want the NET behind the name STARKNET to be cast far and wide, across boundaries instead of within the walls of limitations. Decentralization of ownership equates to power.
Live long and prosper Starknetizens
I have some extra ideas for Airdrop eligibility requirement
Keep or Have in the Tx history Liquidity Providing, I don’t really think that many Sybils are doing this, creating LP, adding more funds or etc.
Interact with at least 10 different dApps on Starknet, no matter testnet or mainnet.
Interaction with different assets, not only ETH and USDC, encourage users who are interacting with multiple assets of Starknet: ETH, USDT, DAI, USDC etc
Extra requirement for the Volume in Starknet ecosystem: 25k > 50k > 100> 150>
Agree with this. Its way too early for airdrop.
Opti and Arbi drops can be considered successful as they were launched on already established eco-systems with friendly UX and clear benefits over alternative (Main-net, Solana).
At the current tx speed, the sentiment across non-core casual users is quite negative towards Starknet. We have 15 mins tx finality, don’t have wallet programmability, social logins and all the cool stuff that will make us stand out.
What I think may work is announcing retro-active rewards in STRK for contributors without going deep into criteria. It can be decided later on when we are more established and user friendly in an open way.
The promise to reward meaningful contributors (devs, users, testers, LPs, content creators) is already a big enough and fair incentive imo. This is how, I believe, market sees it, looking at other L2 cases.
