When engaging with decentralized finance (DeFi), investors often face the challenge of managing investments, tracking yields, and ensuring they keep all their assets safe.
ZetaChain testnet is live and users of the protocol can potentially qualify for one of the biggest crypto airdrops of the year. In this blog, we’ll explain what ZetaChain is and what you can do to get the $ZETA airdrop.
What Is ZetaChain?
ZetaChain is a layer 1 blockchain that is touted as having built-in connectivity to all blockchains and their applications. The ZetaChain website describes it as such: “Build interoperable dApps that span any chain including Bitcoin; access all chains from one place.”
They also state that “ZetaChain is the only public, decentralized blockchain and smart contract platform that enables message passing and value transfer between any blockchain, including non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin and Dogecoin. No other blockchain enables fully interoperable smart contracts like we do.”
One of its main benefits is that it enables omnichain decentralized applications (odApps), which are able to access and use information and liquidity from multiple blockchains simultaneously. The chain is relatively new with a whitepaper published in February 2023, but it has a growing ecosystem:

Step-By-Step Guide to ZetaChain Airdrop Basics
This video outlines the basic instructions for improving your odds of obtaining a Zeta retrodrop:
Acquire Testnet ZETA Tokens
You can request testnet tokens once a day to use for ZetaLabs transactions via this URL https://labs.zetachain.com/get-zeta:
You can request once every 48 hours, but you should note that your Twitter account must be over 1 month old.
ZetaLabs Cross-Chain Swap
There is currently a ZetaChain swap site that is live on testnet that can be assessed at https://labs.zetachain.com/swap:
Four different testnets are available to practice swapping functionality. To maximize potential airdrop returns, consider swapping across all available testnets:
Earn ZETA Points
Users can also receive ZETA points by connecting their Twitter account with their ZetaChain wallet and referring new users to the chain:
For every person invited, both parties receive a boost of 5,000 ZETA points. Furthermore, every time a party you invited performs a weekly transaction, you’ll earn 1,750 points. Referring others is more likely to earn more points than doing swaps. While there is no guarantee that maximizing ZETA points will lead to higher airdrop rewards, we believe that putting in the time to earn them will likely increase your odds of a retrodrop success.
Advanced Airdrop Tasks on ZetaChain
This video outlines some of the more advanced tasks users can tackle to improve their odds of receiving an airdrop:
ZetaChain Galxe Quest
ZetaChain has a Galxe Quests page with custom tasks. The campaign can be found here: https://galxe.com/ZetaChain/campaign/GCatUUwYSY
Campaign tasks include connecting social media accounts, making specific cross-chain swaps, and completing educational quizzes.
TowerSwap is the first independent DEX on ZetaChain and will be launching an NFT marketplace shortly. You can find their site here: https://towerswap.finance/
It’s a standard DEX that gives you the ability to complete swaps or try yield farming by providing liquidity with testnet ZetaChain tokens. There’s even a chance that TowerSwap may complete an airdrop of their own in the future.
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.
With this in mind, our superpowered DeFi dashboard offers helpful tools to keep you safe. Scanner, our free smart contract audit tool, functions as an instant intelligent evaluation. Users can quickly and effortlessly assess the safety of smart contracts across a wide range of EVM chains.
We also offer Shield, a tool to monitor and revoke crypto wallet permissions. It automatically scans your wallets for high risk tokens/NFTs/approvals and notifies you in case there are any.
Make sure to follow our De.Fi Security account on Twitter as well to stay up-to-date on breaking DeFi exploits. Your ZetaChain airdrop rewards are only as valuable as the security you use to protect them. Stay vigilant and protect your gains!
