Cryptocurrency wallet and services provider Blockchain.com is, once again, doing an airdrop. This time, the firm has teamed up with Blockstack, and giving away the blockchain platform’s Stack (ticker: STX) tokens to eligible members. In order to be eligible for the airdrop, users accounts must be Gold Level verified.
All eligible users will automatically receive $10 worth of STX tokens (about 90 coins at current rates) during the airdrop. Blockstack tokens will be airdropped into eligible wallets simultaneously in January, or February of 2020. Blockchain will notify users of airdrop by email. Users will then be able to send and receive their STX tokens, shortly after the airdrop is completed.
If you would like to get your hands on some free STX, you will either have to get verified up to the Gold level, or sign up and get your account verified. If you haven’t got an account, you will have to register a new account by directing your browser to Blockchain and following these steps.
Having selected the GET FREE WALLET button on the landing page, you will have to enter your email address, key in your preferred password, and tick the little box that verifies the you’ve read and understand the firm’s terms and conditions of use. Once you have completed the above steps, click on the the Create My Wallet button. That having been completed, you will be promoted to verify your email address, which entails leaving the page, and going to the tab where you have your chosen email account open, then opening the email that arrives. You must then follow the instructions in the email.
You will then need to verify your identity by logging into your newly created wallet, and selecting the Complete My Profile option. You will then be asked to upload the requisite documents, ID, Driver’s Licence, or Passport (in most cases), as well as a picture of yourself, for KYC purposes.
Once your account is verified, you’re ready to go. You will then have Gold Level verification and will have booked your spot in the upcoming airdrop.
Gold Level Verification
Gold Level verification is Blockchain’s highest level of verification and requires official identity documentation to verify the identity information (full name and surname) users key in to obtain Silver Level verification. With Gold Level verification, users of the platform are allowed SWAP trades of up to $25,000 in value per day, while Silver limits users to trades of just $1000. With Golf Level verification, one also becomes automatically eligible to participate in the firm’s airdrop program.
Getting one’s account Gold Level verified is a simple and straightforward process, and the system’s AI takes between 5 seconds to 2 hours to complete the process, provided the information that the user provides is clear and consistent.
The Blockstack platform is a decentralized (blockchain – based) ecosystem that enables users to take control of, and monetize their own identity information and user data. The Blockstack system, which already has over 300 DApps (decentralized applications) built on its network, ensures that third parties cannot appropriate or alter user data in any way, without the user’s permission.
The STX token is the blockchain’s native asset and is designed to monetize the data sharing process between company and user.
