Pulsechain, The Worlds Largest Crypto Airdrop. Ever.
In the world of cryptocurrency, airdrops are commonplace among emerging tokens or tech. Early users of Uniswap for example, before the Decentralized Exchange had a native token, were later given or airdropped free UNI tokens as a thank you for interacting with the protocol.
Ethereum Names Service(ENS), A web3 domain website that allows people to purchase domains that would be connected directly to the Ethereum Blockchain, had a massive airdrop that gave away 10's of thousands of dollars to many people just for purchasing domains before any token was ever release.
There have been many instances like these however they all have one thing in common, they are just a singular token or coin(in the case of a fork like Bitcoin Cash to Bitcoin). There has never been an airdrop that has given people that hold anything on a blockchain an airdrop of everything they own when a fork of the network happens. Let's unpack that a bit.
Ethereum, is a fork of the original network Ethereum Classic with smart contracts implemented in its protocol. Binance Smart Chain, is a Fork of Ethereum. What these "forks" are, is this according to Cryptopedia.com :
A fork occurs when one blockchain is divided into two blockchains. This type of split in a blockchain network happens when an update is made to the blockchain protocol, but not all of the network participant nodes agree to adopt it. Blockchains can experience two main types of forks: a soft fork or a hard fork. Soft forks result in an update that is “backwards compatible.” This means that nodes which accept the update are still capable of interacting with nodes which do not. In a hard fork, the update significantly alters the original blockchain protocol such that the two versions are no longer compatible with one another. The result of a hard fork is two unique blockchains that diverge
