Blockchain president and chief legal officer Marco Santori previously said that “airdrops have the power to decentralize networks without the investment risks inherent in ICOs and the complexity inherent in mining.” In addition, CEO Peter Smith said that the airdrop is designed to “put users first” and allow them “to test, try, trade and transact with new, trusted crypto-assets in a safe and easy way.”
Ultimately, Blockchain hopes that the XLM giveaway and its airdrop program will raise awareness about cryptocurrency and its versatility. The wallet provider has also partnered with Stanford d.school’s tech wing, code.org, charity: water and Network for Good to further XLM adoption.
