Airdrops are something crypto users always have an eye on. They are one of the most efficient and easiest methods by which you can make your first 100 thousand dollars in the crypto space. With the many airdrops held on different platforms, users have managed to earn massive profits with little to no income. People made an earning of around four figures on Aptos, four figures on Hashflow and five figures on DYDX through their respective airdrops.

With the current craze that this technique is surrounded with, more and more crypto projects are adopting it to grow their protocol. As a result, we believe that the Lens Protocol could also potentially become a SocialFi unicorn & airdrop their $LENS token. In this article, we will cover the details of the project and how you can become eligible for the airdrop

What is the LENS Protocol?

The Lens Protocol is a very popular protocol that functions as a social graph platform catering to many social apps, for example, YouTube and Twitter. Lens essentially unifies your profile from these apps along with your audience, and content on all Lens-powered apps. Much like an ENS domain, your profile can be traded on marketplaces.

The Lens Protocol allows users to manage several functions like minting a profile, following others, creating and accumulating any publications, etc, all in an on-chain mechanism. Being both a permissionless and a non-custodial platform, it lets the user take control of their profile and digital identity. Lens has been funded by many big names in the past and has also acquired Sonar, a social gaming platform with web3 foundation. The protocol is looking to raise more investment rounds in the near future.

The team backing the Lens Protocol has quite an impressive background. Not only is it powered by the Polygon PoS network, but is also created by the unit responsible for building the Aave Protocol. They have designed Lens in a holistic manner so that many other functionalities can be deployed on top of it. This functionality support was created specifically keeping in mind factors like publications for example individual user-owned profile NFTs, posts, comments, and mirrors (similar to retweets).
