If you google the term “airdrop” you most likely find the popular app by Apple. But if you are looking for crypto airdrops, you need to google Airdrop Alert.
Who was first using this term and what are the differences and similarities between the two?
As the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, openly endorsed Bitcoin recently. We felt it’s time to compare the two airdrops.
The Apple AirDrop
The first notable difference is the spelling. Apple spells it “AirDrop” with a capital D.
This way of spelling has been taken over by many projects promoting crypto airdrops as well. A small example how strong the Apple branding really is.
We like to spell it the regular way: Airdrop.
The AirDrop app lets you quickly and easily transfer files between iPhones, iPads, and Macs. It uses Bluetooth LE to broadcast, discover, and negotiate connections, and point-to-point Wi-Fi to transfer data. That makes it fast, power-efficient, and secure!
When you’re using Apple’s AirDrop between iPhones and iPads, you can AirDrop photos, videos, contacts, Passbook passes, Voice Memos, Map locations, and everything else that appears on a Share sheet.
A crypto airdrop is a “give away” of tokens or coins to create brand awareness and acquire users for blockchain start-ups. The concept really took off late 2017, after we launched the world’s first airdrop platform.
Recently we have been following Tron and BitTorrent and their monthly ongoing airdrop in addition with several trading competitions of the BTT token. It shows that airdrops are still a valid strategy to expose your brand name to a wide audience!
Apple AirDrop vs Crypto Airdrop
Both the airdrops have something in common. You receive something through the “air” on your device.
While the Apple AirDrop shares a file on your iPhone or iPad, a crypto airdrop provides a token in your Ethereum wallet.
At Airdrop Alert, we like the second one better. Nothing makes us more happy than receiving some fresh new tokens in our wallet and sharing the latest airdrops with our users.
