The first point to make is that an airdrop to reward users of the platform should do just that, reward ‘users’.
We all know that bots will have tried to game the system and so the basis of fairness in my proposal is formed by rewarding ‘repeat users’ above all others. At the end of the day, we are really looking for users who have both supported from the begining, but continue to use the platform.
A multi-level approach is bar far the fairest in my opinion, with basic rewards for users that have interacted with the platform in a minimal capacity, but with additional rewards for users that are using the platform regularly. After all, it is these users which will become the core community.
Here is my airdrop proposal for discussion.
Mandatory Rule: Any account must have touched either the zkSync or ZZ bridge in order to qualify for any of the criteria below.
X allocation - ZigZag Early Supporters (Gitcoin Donors)
X allocation - ZigZag Users (at least 2 trades, first being at least 3 months ago)
X allocation - ZigZag Bridge Users (Bridged funds through ZigZag at least twice)
Y allocation - Repeat ZigZag Users (at least 10 trades spread over at least 4 unique weeks. 1k volume or more)
Z allocation - ZigZag Early Supporters (Gitcoin Donors) + Repeat User
Z allocation - ZigZag Users + Repeat User
Z allocation - ZigZag Bridge Users + Repeat User
So, the idea is that X allocation is a relatively low reward (but is at least something). It’s likely that some bots will qualify for X allocation but the inpact overall should be negligible. Y allocation is the next tier up and for users that have many interactions with the platform and use it regularly. Z allocation is the final tier, and provides an overlap where repeat users can maximise their rewards if they have had the maximum levels of interaction.
Thanks for reading.
