AirdropAlert.com, a Netherlands based platform for promoting and joining the latest crypto airdrop campaigns, is celebrating the 2500th (!) airdrop campaign listed on their platform. After two years of operations and no signs of slowing down, here is a quick look at how far Airdrop Alert has come and where they are heading:
Humble Beginnings of Airdrops
Early 2017, blockchain-based startups were struggling to attract new users and supporters. They started giving away tokens, which were called “airdrops”, but even with free coin events, there still wasn’t much traction.
That’s why Airdrop Alert created one central place where users could find crypto airdrops and projects could promote them to crypto enthusiasts.
After the launch of AirdropAlert.com, the concept of free airdrops took off. With a trusted party curating the tokenized freebies, users experienced an easy and safe way to collect free tokens. With seemingly low effort, the community of Airdrop Alert grew rapidly, which created the viral effect of airdrops we know today.
The Good Old Days of Crypto
During the bull market of 2018, Airdrop Alert managed to attract over 350,000 new visitors every month. The platform quickly became the top marketing place for crypto businesses around the world, including BRD, Stellar & CryptoCoin.News, to boost their communities with thousands of users within a few days.
With the rise of unverified or scammy projects, Airdrop Alert scaled their team to ensure the safety of crypto airdrops for the safety of its users. At the peak, their team consisted of 15 members.
2019, A Fresh Start For Airdrop Alert
During the bear market, every business in the cryptosphere had to adjust to the existing circumstances. Airdrop Alert started automating listing processes and other parts of their platform and business.
The focus on clients shifted from ICO’s to established projects, like Swissborg, Nexo and Novem Gold. Projects that had already raised funds prior to listing, so that their token was less speculative for the end-user.
The goal was to show projects which airdrops were a great marketing tool to acquire crypto users in a stage where the product had a real use case. The airdrop hunters are very willing to test out MVP versions of a product. Or they can be utilized for A/B testing your app or platform.
July 2019, 2nd Year Anniversary
This summer Airdrop Alert celebrated their 2nd year anniversary. With this event, there was an announcement of an upcoming Pro-Plan which will allow users to get automated crypto airdrops in their wallet, without doing the work.
To celebrate this milestone AirdropAlert.com began accepting a new batch of users to test the new Pro plan – a monthly based subscription that automatically distributes airdrops to your account – without the manual work to join every single crypto airdrop.
Want to be part of the Pro-Plan? Apply here today.
The response of the Pilot users is an overwhelming success.
Some of the users say:
Airdrops are time-consuming.I don’t mind paying a small fee if in the process I save time and still get the best airdrops. If I see that the return involved makes sense, I will upgrade to the top package.For now I just want to see how things work out.

I have been a long time follower of your site as I entered this market in January 2018 (top of the market). However Airdrop Alert forced me to not give up on crypto, but to invest more time and gain more knowledge about several projects. As a serious airdroper I use you site to find the good projects and tend to invest in them afterwards. I would almost say I am a pro crypto investor because of Airdrop Alert.

Full Steam Ahead
With plenty of more feature updates on the horizon and new products on the roadmap to launch in the coming weeks – from open applications to join the team, to the wide range of content services available for businesses across the sector – the AirdropAlert family and airdrops as a whole show no signs of slowing down in 2019.
