List of Airdrop Dapps Compared

There are four, primary ways through which you can perform airdrops, including a DIY option, in which you personally do manual batch transfers, which can turn out to be very costly and time-consuming because of the requirement of sending a large amount of tokens to many different addresses. In addition to this, this way is also prone to market fluctuations, delays, and error due to fatigue, forgetfulness and human constraints. Still, there are other alternatives: you could, for example, as an owner of a token that is willing to do an airdrop, program an airdrop yourself, which is a technique employed by project developers because it lets them program the airdrop with specific functionalities that truly benefit their project. Even so, this process may also be slow, require more programming skills and be more prone to human errors.

The third option is the usage of third parties to do an airdrop, of which there are a host including: 99airdrops, Airdrop Addict, Airdrop Bob, Airdrop Land, Airdrop Notify, Airdrop Scouter, Airdrop Tracker, Airdropalert.com, Airdroply.com, Airdrops.io, and many others, which you also may need to pay a little bit more for to truly facilitate your campaign.

There is a fourth alternative option, which we are going to talk about today in this article, that is the usage of dApps and smart contracts to run airdrops and how this works out.  Like the Merkle Airdrop smart contracts, the user has to approve their participation in the campaign, and the person carrying out the campaign needs to confirm that real addresses were involved in the process.

This method has some advantages over the other three methods. It can prove to be low-cost since there are no development cost involved; you don't pay for information or other operating expenses, and you save time. The overall cost may be a bit higher than DIY, but even the most popular options in this case have an average cost of only a few cents depending on the amount of tokens or the overall value that you want to transfer. Like you might expect, different dApps will have different features and costs, and therefore, differing advantages and disadvantages as well.

dApps charge gas fees that may vary depending on the lines of code involved in the work and whether you plan to do manual transfers, batch transfers where you send tokens directly to certain addresses, or leaving it to receivers of tokens to claim their airdrop tokens and pay for their own gas, or do manual transfers for batch transfers using smart contracts. For instance, a dApp that sends directly to addresses will be less costly than one that leaves for users to claim the tokens. Coding the distribution within the token itself at TGE will also be more costly. Furthermore, manual batch transfers are less costly with smart contracts since there are no additional costs for processing the batch transfers' smart contract functionalities.

The list below is for dApps that work with major blockchain platforms like: Ethereum, Qtum, EOS, NEO, Steem, Nebulas, ETC, Tron, TomoChain, IOST and Blockstack. Again, different dApps work for different environments.
