When engaging with decentralized finance (DeFi), investors often face the challenge of managing investments, tracking yields, and ensuring they keep all their assets safe.
StarkNet is a scalable Layer 2 Validity-Rollup for the Ethereum blockchain that uses STARK proofs to provide high throughput and low gas costs while retaining the security of ETH Layer 1.
As the demand for decentralized applications and DeFi platforms continues to surge, the need for innovative and scalable rollups on Ethereum is becoming more apparent than ever. StarkNet, developed by StarkWare, aims to address these challenges and revolutionize what is possible on blockchain networks.
Below are the official links for StarkNet online properties. Remember to always be vigilant when completing the StarkNet airdrop guide tasks listed below and to only use URLs for the official projects we have listed.

Many scammers will try to fake airdrop hunters by utilizing links for domains or social media accounts that look legitimate, but that will steal your funds if you connect your wallet and complete a transaction. Double and triple-check the sites you are using.
On our YouTube channel we are always producing new videos about potential crypto airdrops, and the StarkNet airdrop is one of the most requested topics. This blog will summarize our most informative videos on the topic, with step-by-step tasks you can complete to boost your chances of receiving a StarkNet retrodrop.
The 3 Best Airdrops on StarkNet (Step-by-Step Guide)
This video highlights some of the most prominent apps on StarkNet that you should consider using to boost your onchain activity. Engaging with any of these apps has the potential to increase a user’s chances of receiving a retrodrop.
JediSwap is the first DEX on StarkNet’s mainnet where users can perform swaps and provide liquidity like standard DeFi DEXs on other L1s. They offer a fully permissionless and composable AMM similar to Uniswap V2. We recommend both completing a swap and performing basic LP functions: https://www.jediswap.xyz/
Starknet.id is an onchain name service similar to Ethereum Name Service (ENS) but for StarkNet. Claiming your Starknet.id is an easy way to simplify tracking your StarkNet address while improving your airdrop odds: https://app.starknet.id/
ArgentX is the #1 wallet for users on StarkNet, with roughly 80% of onchain users utilizing their wallet. It is a browser wallet that is compatible with Google Chrome, Brave, and Firefox-based browsers. In the past, they have run NFT giveaways via their Argent Xplorer campaign, and we believe this is a great sign that they could potentially do something similar with their own token or in partnership with StarkNet: https://www.argent.xyz/
Note, two of the apps above are interrelated. Users can double-dip between the ArgentX wallet and JediSwap by performing swaps directly within the ArgentX wallet. This is because the built-in swap feature of the wallet utilizes JediSwap liquidity pools. Doing your swaps this way increases the chances of qualifying for airdrops from both JediSwap and ArgentX if they launch tokens on StarkNet.

Maybe the most obvious app to use if you want to set yourself up for a StarkNet airdrop is the official bridge, StarkGate. StarkGate allows you to deposit assets onto StartkNet from a huge variety of source chains. You can even make deposits via exchanges or a standard bank payment card: https://starkgate.starknet.io/
StarkDefi considers themselves to be the first “permissionless and trustless hub of comprehensive DeFi solutions on Starknet”. They currently only operate on testnet but mainnet functionality should be coming soon: https://www.starkdefi.com/
Carmine Finance is a derivatives platform on StarkNet where users can go long or short on calls/puts based on the prices of their favorite onchain assets: https://carmine.finance/

For this task, users needed a “.stark” domain name. These names can be minted on mainnet using the Starknet.id app. The cost is around 0.02 ETH for a one-year domain.
The game was available for three weeks and gave users time to participate in the potential for a $12,000 prize airdrop. It also awarded collectible NFTs to accounts based on their performance within the game.
Staying Safe While Airdrop Hunting
While airdrops can be hugely promising if you capitalize on the right opportunities, it’s also essential that you avoid projects that could leave your portfolio REKT via hacks and scams.
