What is ZetaChain?
ZetaChain is a layer-1 blockchain that has built-in connectivity to all blockchains and their applications. It is also a smart contract platform that can manage assets, data, and liquidity on any chain, even non-smart contract chains such as Bitcoin and Dogecoin.
The project is still in the testing phase, but it has a lot of potential for the future. One of its main benefits is that it enables omnichain decentralized applications (odApps), which are able to access and use information and liquidity from multiple blockchains simultaneously.
To make things even easier, ZetaChain has created a special app called the ZetaChain Swap App. This app allows users to transfer assets between any connected blockchain without having to go through a complicated process of wrapping or locking tokens. Instead, users can complete the transaction in just one step.
Does ZetaChain have a Token?
Yes, ZetaChain confirmed in its whitepaper that there will be a $ZETA token. The token will be used for paying gas fees, securing the proof-of-stake blockchain, and enabling cross-chain transfers, swaps, and messaging.
Additionally, $ZETA will be issued natively across multiple layers and chains. As of now, ZetaChain has not yet published its tokenomics nor officially announced an airdrop. But its testnet is incentivized, which generally indicates an airdrop for its users. People have also noticed that ZetaChain now has a page on CoinMarketCap, is this a hint that the $ZETA token is launching soon?
How to Receive Potential $ZETA Airdrop?
The best chance to receive a potential $ZETA airdrop is to interact with their incentivized testnets. You can accrue ZETA points by completing various tasks, and these points will most likely translate to airdrop rewards once the token is launched. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

- Request Testnet ZETA
Go to labs.zetachain.com/get-zeta and request some ZETA for ZetaLabs transactions. You will receive 2 ZETA and some gas assets on the Goerli, Polygon Mumbai, and BSC Testnet so you can start testing on different chains. You can only request once a day, and we recommend doing this every day.

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.
