The Airdrop date is set for November 19th and will allow users to claim their share of $BOBA. The Airdrop details a few conditions that must be met in order to be eligible for the Airdrop, one of which is to hold $OMG.
What Is $BOBA?
For those confused, $BOBA is a new token launched by the OMG Foundation to support the Boba Network.
According to their website, $BOBA is:
“an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible Layer 2 Optimistic Rollup that helps Ethereum smart contracts scale while delivering a delightful user experience.”
In other words, it allows developers to build dApps that can run web-scale code on serverless infrastructures like AWS Lambda. This makes it possible to create complex applications that otherwise would be near impossible on-chain.
There’s no doubt that the recent Aidrop announcement generated quite a bit of hype around this project. Airdrops are a great way to incentivize community interaction and spread word about a project.
