We all know about Ethereum and the Metamask wallet we can use to access it, but this is 2022 and there are now many other functioning blockchains out there, all of which are thankfully much cheaper to use, however they do often require different wallets to interact with.
But please, don’t let this be the barrier holding you back from using them, because often times great rewards can be earned by simply having a wallet and making a few transactions on the up-and-coming network/dapp.
To help get you started ASAP, we’ve put together this article as a quick and easy overview on this topic, so let’s get straight into it.

Now that you’ve got yourself all set up, it’s time to get busy and get your hands dirty mining some free coins/tokens, which is where a wonderful invention of airdrops comes in very handy.
Airdrops are a way of incentivising people to join/use new products and networks and boy have they been on fire lately. Many hundreds of millions if not billions have been dished out for free on unsuspecting blockchain enthusiasts in the last 12-24 months and it’s high time you joined in on the party.
Below are the best sources of information of upcoming airdrops, that you will want to keep a very close eye on, since they are all very time sensitive events and only the earliest of birds get the worms.
There is usually a bit of work involved like joining/sharing social media channels on Twitter/Telegram/Discord, sometimes filling out application forms and other times using the products themselves, like making trades on DEXs, providing liquidity on them or voting on governance proposals.
There’s no better way to get started than simply doing it, so without further ado, here are the promised websites:

Sometimes you will need some free coins/tokens to get started, especially on testnets, so here’s a quick list of a few faucets that dish out free coins/tokens:

This site will help you to connect to the many different blockchain networks, so it’s very handy to keep in your bookmarks as well: https://chainlist.org/
That’s it for now. I’ll keep updating this page as I get more data on additional blockchains, so be sure to bookmark it and check back regularly.
Don’t be afraid to get going, it’s all very similar in nature and you will quickly get very fluent at it, but do keep a record of all your activities and check for airdrops regularly, to make sure you’re not missing out on any, as they are usually time limited opportunities to claim them and cash them in at a good price.
