PRYZM ($PRYZM) is a platform built on Cosmos that allows users to trade their future staking rewards for different types of tokens, such as fixed yield tokens, leveraged yield tokens, or stablecoins. The team have confirmed they will do an airdrop to BOTH Cosmos stakers and PRYZM testnet users. Here’s our guide to the PRYZM ($PRYZM) token airdrop.
Check out our PRYZM airdrop video guide!
What is PRYZM ($PRYZM)?
PRYZM is a new way of using DeFi. Built on Cosmos, PRYZM lets people swap, trade, and convert their future income from DeFi into different forms. Here are some of its main features:
- Fixed Yield Swap: You can exchange your variable income from DeFi for a fixed income for a certain period of time. This way, you can avoid the risk of losing money if the market changes.
- Yield Leverage: You can borrow money from PRYZM to increase your income from DeFi. You don’t have to worry about paying back the loan or losing your assets if the market goes down.
- Yield Conversion: You can change your future income from DeFi into any stablecoin, which is a digital currency that has a fixed value. This way, you can protect yourself from the price fluctuations of DeFi assets.
- Yield Tokenization: You can split your DeFi asset into two parts: one that represents the principal amount and one that represents the income. You can then trade or stake these parts separately or together.
What is the PRYZM ($PRYZM) token?
The PRYZM token is the native token of the PRYZM network. It is used to pay for transaction fees, governance, and staking rewards.
Will there be a PRYZM token airdrop?
The PRYZM team have confirmed they will do an airdrop in their upcoming StakeDrop event. Later, they also announced further airdrop criteria. Up to 200 million PRYZM (i.e. 20% of the total token supply) will be airdropped to PRYZM’s Atom, Osmosis and Luna Validators. Users can participate in the StakeDrop by staking one or more of the following tokens: $ATOM, $OSMO or $LUNA. The airdrop amount for each user will depend on the amount and type of tokens they stake, as well as the duration of their participation. The airdrop eligibility criteria and distribution schedule will be announced soon here.
How to get a potential PRYZM token airdrop?
PRYZM has confirmed they will do an airdrop to BOTH Cosmos stakers and PRYZM testnet users. Here’s how to get a potential PRYZM token airdrop, as well as some of our additional strategies to maximise your airdrop!
- Stake Cosmos $ATOM tokens
Go to your Keplr (or Leap) wallet dashboard. Click on “Chains” on the left. Click into “Cosmos Hub” and search for the PRYZM validator. Type in the amount of $ATOM you wish to stake and click “Stake”. Note for the airdrop there is no minimum amount which must be staked in order to qualify. However it is likely that the more you stake, the more tokens you will receive.
- Stake Osmosis $OSMO tokens
Follow the same steps in 1 above but in the Chains section, click into “Osmosis”. Search for the PRYZM validator. Select the amount of $OSMO you wish to stake and click “Stake”.
- Stake Terra $LUNA tokens
Go here and fill in the amount of $LUNA tokens you wish to stake. Click “Delegate”.
- Mint and hold $cLUNA
This only applies if you had been bonding your $LUNA to mint $cLUNA. PRYZM have announced that the current $cLUNA contract on Terra will be deprecated. So, users are asked to unbond their $cLUNA before PRYZM’s mainnet launch. However, PRYZM will still be doing weekly airdrop snapshots for $cLUNA holders for 3 more weeks until 2nd February 2024 to allow users time to redeem their $cLUNA.
- Complete Zealy quests
Go to the PRYZM Zealy questboard and complete the tasks. Most of these are social tasks such as interacting with their social media pages. Other tasks include delegating $ATOM, $OSMO and $LUNA which you would have already done in steps 1 to 3 above.
- Set up PRYZM testnet
Connect your wallet to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/. Go to “Faucet” and click “Request tokens” for some testnet $USDSim and $PRYZM. Then, delegate your $PRYZM by going to “Earn” and “Delegate”. Type in the amount of testnet $PRYZM tokens you wish to delegate, select any validator and click “Stake”. You will gain voting power once you have delgated your $PRYZM, so do not forget to vote on any governance proposals.
- Delegate and vote on PRYZM testnet
Delegate your $PRYZM by going to “Earn” and “Delegate”. Type in the amount of testnet $PRYZM tokens you wish to delegate, select any validator and click “Stake”. You will gain voting power once you have delegated your $PRYZM, so do not forget to vote on any governance proposals.
- Swap tokens on PRYZM testnet
Go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/swap. Swap some $USDSim to $ATOM and $LUNA. We recommend these two swaps because it means you can also bond the tokens using their liquid staking feature (see below).
- Bond tokens on PRYZM testnet
Go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/pryzm/bond. Select the amount of $ATOM or $LUNA tokens you wish to bond and click “Accept and bond”. You will receive $cATOM and $cLUNA tokens respectively.
- Provide liquidity on PRYZM testnet
Go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/pools. Most people choose the USDSim/PRYZM or SIM/PRYZM pools. Click into the pool and select the number of tokens you wish to provide and click “Provide liquidity”. Approve the transaction in your Keplr wallet.
What is interesting about the pools on PRYZM is that you do not need to provide a pair of tokens. You can provide only 1 of the tokens by clicking the red minus button on the token do you not want to provide.
Providing liquidity will get you $yAssets or $pAssets, which can be used for other features on PRYZM.
- Test the rates feature on PRYZM testnet
Go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/pryzm/rates and choose between Fixed Yield Token (pAsset) or Variable Yield Token (yAsset). This will swap your $ATOM to $pATOM or $yATOM, as the case may be. You can also click on “Refract” which will allow you to get both $pATOM and $yATOM using $cATOM. Also try the “Merge” feature, which is the opposite of Refract i.e. your $pATOM and $yATOM will be merged into $cATOM.
- Try the PulseTrade feature on PRYZM testnet
PulseTrade is a feature which allows you to break down your trades into smaller parts. This helps you control when they are executed and reduces the price impact caused by larger trades. To use the PulseTrade feature, go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/pulsetrade and buy liquidity pool tokens using $PRYZM.
- Try the FlowTrade feature on PRYZM testnet
FlowTrade allows users to gradually convert any token to another. Go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/flowtrade and choose a flow. Click on a live trade, choose the number of $PRYZM tokens and click “Join the flow”. Alternatively you can create your own Flow.
- Stake on PRYZM testnet
Go to https://testnet.pryzm.zone/pryzm/stake. You can stake your LP tokens from step 11 above here i.e. $yAssets or $pAssets.
PRYZM airdrop review
When reviewing an airdrop, there are several factors to consider. First, the likelihood the project will even do an airdrop in the first place. Then, to look at how many tokens the project intends to allocate towards airdrop campaigns, as well as the difficulty in participating in their airdrop. It is also important to look at the utility of the token so that there will be an actual use and purpose in participating in the airdrop in the first place. Finally, a factor to consider when reviewing an airdrop is whether the airdropped tokens are subject to any lockup period.
Likelihood of airdrop: PRYZM have already confirmed they will do an airdrop and given lots of hints on how to be eligible for it.
Airdropped token allocation: The PRYZM team will airdrop up to 200 million PRYZM (i.e. 20% of the total token supply).
Airdrop difficulty: There are a range of tasks to complete, such as social tasks on Zealy, interacting with their testnet and most importantly, staking onto PRYZM’s Validators. There is something for every skill level.
