Airdrops are one of the best marketing methods for cryptocurrency startups to promote their projects. There are different ways to do it, but it essentially involves sending free tokens to crypto users’ wallets in exchange for promotional work.
One of the most successful airdrops in crypto history was DFINITY, a Swiss nonprofit blockchain company that airdropped $35 million worth of DFN tokens, between $500 – $2500 worth of DFN to users who signed up to protocol’s mailing list before April 4th, 2018.
The best NFT and Crypto Giveaways in September
We have compiled September’s top airdrops across the crypto world, including giveaways from DeFi, gaming, and NFTs projects with long-term potential value.
1. MAD Metaverse – Largest Play-to-Earn Airdrop to Date

BIOMETA #AIRDROP GIVEAWAY
It’s time for the big event! We’re giving away over $10m worth of $BIOMETA and Evolving NFTs

— MAD Metaverse (@MADmetaverse) September 9, 2022
MAD Metaverse is a gamified DeFi ecosystem where you can enhance the performance, rarity and value of your NFTs. Users will be able to create living digital organisms, evolve NFTs, fight against other players, and collect $BIOMETA, the most precious resource in the MAD Metaverse.
The game focuses on the concept of Evolving NFTs, presenting players with three playable NFTs: MAD Metascientists, MAD Metacells, and MAD Nanocells. These are self-aware organisms whose attributes and artwork can evolve over time in response to gameplay and therefore increase in value. It also features 3 Play&Earn Environments where you’ll be able to earn crypto and NFTs: The Lab, NanoWars & MAD Metaverse.
There will only be 10,200 MAD Metascientists accessible to users, and those who own 1 of them will have significant advantages over those who don´t. Additionally, those who mint a Metascientist will get 1 Metacell as a bonus as soon as The Lab is released. Users must register to the MAD Whitelist at premint.xyz/mad to participate. These will give them access to:
- MAD Metascientists Mint (30th November)
- MAD Metacell Free Mint (30th September)
- $10 million worth of $BIOMETA giveaway
- Access to exclusive channels in the MAD Discord
- Information about future mints, airdrops, and whitelist spots from collabs.
2. Tamadoge – $100k Airdrop
$TAMA is not the typical memecoin to pump and dump —it has a certain degree of utility in the Tamadoge ecosystem, which consists of a metaverse, an NFT marketplace, and a play-to-earn game. The project is calling the attention of the crypto community, particularly memecoin enthusiasts, naturally, and has managed to raise over $13 million so far.
The Tamadoge team is giving away $100,000 worth of $TAMA. The winner must hold at least the equivalent of $100 of $TAMA on the day of the draw.

inSHAPE is a blockchain-based app that rewards users with SHAPE tokens for working out. The difference that separates inSHAPE from other Move-to-Earn apps is that they reward users for performing different exercises and sports, not just running or walking. The app is free to use, and its utility token has use cases beyond the blockchain world.
To participate, users must sign up on the official airdrop page, connect their BEP20 wallet and complete the tasks to earn entries. They can also earn more entries if they refer to someone else. It goes as follows:
- The app will pick 20 random participants who will be lucky enough to win 1,000 SHAPE ($2,000) tokens each.
- The top 3 users with the most entries will receive 1 NFT inSHAPE Wild Card All Sports VIP Edition.
- Each inSHAPE NFT has three levels of rarity: VIP Edition Common, VIP Edition Uncommon, and VIP Edition Rare. The rarer, the better the benefits for the owners.
- The app will display winners on the giveaway page at the end of the airdrop. All awards will be distributed to users via BEP20 wallets.

Here we reviewed some of the hottest airdrops for September 2022.
Airdrops are extremely popular now in the crypto industry, becoming the best method for crypto startups to involve investors in their projects. They are not exclusive to crypto, though, since most airdrops started as a way for companies to hand out free products to gauge consumer engagement and raise product awareness.
It’s the same with crypto, except that companies are replaced by DeFi protocols and free products with free tokens.
