Airdrop Alert - Several weeks to prepare. #SHADE

in LeoFinance2 years ago

It's been quite a while since my last post - around 2 months. The real world has had me very distracted, and combining that with some serious writers block, I've just been MIA for a bit. To try get back in to the swing of things, I thought I'd highlight an upcoming airdrop I'm targeting.

Shade Protocol.

The first is a new project I'm looking to get involved in is called "Shade Protocol", being launched on the Secret network eco-system. For those that are not aware, Secret ($SCRT) is a privacy focused platform, built on a Cosmos SDK based blockchain, with a rapidly growing eco-system. #IBC is coming, so at some point these privacy features will have a link to the entire Cosmos IBC eco-system, including #ATOM, #OSMOSIS and soon #TERRA.

From what I can tell, the SHADE token will be the staking and governance token, as well as a mint token (along with SCRT) for a privacy focused algorithmic stablecoin to be called SILK. It looks like Mainnet is targeted for Q1 2022, with new features like leverage and derivatives to follow.

How to participate:

The full details about how the airdrop will work can be found in this blog post from the team. The best thing is that it will be allocated based on snapshots beginning on the 7th November. That gives people plenty of time to position if you are keen to get involved.

Here are my highlights from how the drop will work:

  • First snapshot Nov 7.
  • Will cover 36 days of staking from then.
  • 1.45 million total airdrop - total supply of SHADE will be 10 million.
  • 36% of the airdrop to stakers of Secret (SCRT)
  • 32% to ATOM stakers.
  • 32% to LUNA stakers.
  • Can earn from each of the above pools.
  • Bonuses if you stake outside the top 10 validators on each chain (encouraging decentralization)
  • Don't stake to 0% commision nodes or importantly, exchange nodes (Coinbase, Binance, Kraken for example).
  • Self custody will matter, coins staked on exchanges won't be included.

I've personally been aware of Secret for a while, but have not gotten on board yet. I do plan to position for this airdrop with both ATOM and LUNA stake (I'm currently in the process of moving/restructuring some of my portfolio to add LUNA). I'd encourage you if you have assets in these chains to read the official blog post linked above, and keep an eye out for more details:

Thanks for reading, I'll keep you updated as we learn more about Shade.

I'm also looking to try something, by building up a list of people who would like to be tagged when I post certain content, so you don't miss it. For this post, If you would like to be tagged in future #Airdrop or #shade posts (or both), just let me know in the comments.

Cheers,

JK.

I am interesting in hodling Atom. Gonna proceed once we are through with SL chaos legion pre-sale.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks a lot for sharing !
Your posts are truly missed.

I'll definitely play this one as I'm already stacking ATOM and LUNA.
Any reason why it's considered better to delegate to non 0% commission validators ?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm back now, the real world has been getting in the way, but I've got some time off now and getting back into the swing of things.

I'm not 100% sure why they have put that as a recommendation, maybe they prefer validators that are actively participating and growing their stake by contributing, not just getting lots of delegations from people looking for the cheapest option. Dunno, just a guess.

Can't wait till ATOM and LUNA are linked with IBC, that should be a major growth driver for both platforms.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Glad you're back ;)
Yes could be a good guess. By the way if you have some validators you know are actively participating and contributing, I'll be happy to delegate to them.

LUNA on IBC is going to be massive !
I'd rather pool on UST stable than EURO hahaha

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks for the information. Would like to be tagged for future airdrop and shade post

Added to the list. TY.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I have 0 ATOM and 0 LUNA xE - great start for me!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

There is time if you can, but it's impossible to get involved in everything in crypto, best to pick which eco-systems you are most interested in and focus on them to begin with.

Not financial advice, but I think both ATOM and LUNA have very bright futures, and lots of upcoming airdrops in the coming months.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Very interesting, I'll get some of it.

Welcome back JK! Glad to see you back. Not sure about others but your posts have been really helpful to me. ✌🚀 Feel free to tag me in all of your posts. 😁

Hope everything's fine at your own end. WIll checkout Shade.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I appreciate you saying that, added to the list.

Things have been challenging overall, but I have an extended holiday now so I can get back to digging into plenty in cryptoland.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Welcome back mate and thanks for the heads up, looks like I better get to staking more Luna. It is a great network that rewards all its mainnet stakers with airdrops!

Can't go wrong there. Often the minimum is 100 staked Luna though. Missed out on the STT air drop and now that's hit nearly $6

Luna is a new one for me. I started a major restructure of my portfolio about a week ago, with the specific intention of adding a decent LUNA holding to the mix. Between it and ATOM there is likely to be a bonanza of new projects to get into.

100 LUNA... hmmm will have to see if I can make that happen.

Good to be back, I've missed getting the regular posts out.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I jumped into Luna just before the previous Pump so picked up quite a few at $AUD25

There is so much on their network. Have you seen Anchor protocol yet. If you stake Anchor you'll get Nexus air drops.

I've done a few write ups of Luna launches. They're coming thick and fast.

Mine is another good one. You want to Stake a minimum of 1000 of them as they are a launch pad where you stake UST for a period and get an insane APY

Cool, will dive in to it all in the coming weeks and skim back through your posts for some alpha. I have not looked at anything luna yet.

Will be so easy to shift between Luna and cosmos once their IBC connection is finalised.

Oh my God!! what a news man!!

I have been thinking of exploring this secret network and this looks great. Thanks for this useful information.

You have been very education for me, I explored about Akash Network only seeing why this fellow is talking so much about it, then I got convinced its a great project, on the way to build web 3 - where things are decentralised from cloud launch, storage, hosting and a lot more...

Its very thrilling to think of the big picture and we are still in the early days...I don't think Akash is that well known in the mainstream.

This Cosmos has so much going on man!! ...that terra built using cosmos skd and now you say this secret network too...that's cool that our undervalued Cosmos Blockchain is getting recognision and ignosion.

So, please tag me in other posts you do... I really find your analysis of putting 1 and 1 together pretty good...and I will check this secret network stuff...I have been thinking of Monero and Secret network... I have profits taken from Solana that I can invest around to explore terra, secret network and have some Monero...

Thanks for reminding my to do goals... I am thinking what to do in my crypto work time everyday now with Polkadot's parachain launch and this I have quite a lot of things to do and hopefully all this will be exciting and insightful, rather than just check crypto prices, will it dip further, when will it to buy the crypto back...god dips take a lot of time to come, good dips...this time dips in cosmos not come, wanted to rebuy at 25$...

not sure it will come, and solana at 100 to 80 wanted to buy, dip not coming...took profits and they all are lying around and I need funds to check out terra and secret network so will use these funds. Anyway.

There is so much to keep up with, thats for sure. I took a bit of time off and so much has happened, I'm struggling to catch up. I've come to the conclusion that the base assets of the eco-systems are best for staking - ATOM, LUNA and so on. Many new airdrops to boost returns and give a foot in the door for new projects.

Added to the tag list.

AKT looks like it will require some patience. Had a big token unlock which seems to have suppressed the price for a bit. Hopefully when ATOM goes for another run, it'll keep up.

One question: This project is like monero? or it is much better.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm not across the details of how Secret's privacy features work to be honest. It's states its a privacy chain, but I haven't deep dived in. Main difference to begin with is it's P.O.S. not P.O.W. Beyond that, I'm still learning and can't say yet how privacy is built in.

SHADE will be a new token and project built on top of Secret, so I guess it will inherit it's privacy features.

Will try to deep dive into Secret in a future post.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well if it's PoS it's already something much better than conventional.

All right, I'll keep an eye out for that publication.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hey I noticed this on Osmosis, easy enough to swap into some I guess.

For the Luna, is that Luna staked on the Terra luna network?!?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It'll be LUNA staked on Terra Station I believe. Just avoid the top 10 validators, or exchanges.

Haven't seen it on Osmosis yet, can't wait till LUNA and UST are on there, should drive volume and TVL for OSMO significantly.

Did you get the JUNO airdrop? I got a bit, and its going ok so far. Moving it into Osmosis as part of my restructure.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I heard about it already but thanks for reminding! And yeah, you can tag me on your #airdrop posts!

Done.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am looking forward to it!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Me too, my restructuring should be done just in time.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Ok great, I have a bag of Secret from a while back. I will definitely check it out!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Worth a look, for sure. Low token supply looks interesting.
