Morning Minute | A Valentine's Day Airdrop Surprise?

Morning Minute | A Valentine's Day Airdrop Surprise?

TylerD's Market Summary

Today's Morning Minute is brought to you by Wasabi, THE leading NFT leverage protocol.

Have you been following the ERC404 craze and the rocketing Pandora price action?

Well guess what - Wasabi has officially launched an ERC404 trading terminal, the first of its kind.

With this trading terminal, traders can buy and unlock ERC404 NFTs directly from Uniswap pools (effectively able to buy NFTs that aren't listed on standard marketplaces like Blur).

It's a huge unlock. Plus, since this is NFT-natve, Wasabi is able to open this up to U.S.-based users.

A double unlock.

So check out the new platform and start trading today!

๐ŸŽ Starknet Airdrop Announced

Early ETH users and stakers - you might have a Valentine's Day gift in store.

Starknet is launching its token next week.

And early users along with ETH stakers are likely eligible for the airdrop.

Wait What?

Starknet is an ETH-L2 using a ZK-rollup and its Stark proof to help scale Ethereum.

You can read more about it here.

Now on to the good stuff - the free tokens.

These are the qualifying groups for Airdrop #1:

  • Starknet Users - 51.3%
  • ETH Stakers - 22%
  • StarkEx Users - 9.6%
  • Starknet ECMP Members - 9.05%
  • ETH and Open-Source Developers - 5.45%

You can check eligibility here at

It should be noted that some farming "experts" called this one entirely wrong.

CC2Ventures expected this to be a juicy airdrop for early ETH adopters, stating:

"My gut tells me Early Adopters will claim a substantial amount, as you had to be among the first 1000 users to interact with a fresh, 'risky' contract, that later on turned out to be widely used."

He was touting the Wenser site to check eligibility, which many did - only for Starknet to release entirely different criteria this morning.

The lesson? Be careful who you trust out there.

And airdrop farming (especially sybil farming) continues to be a very profitable profession in 2024.

๐Ÿ“ˆ Crypto Rips Overnight

This morning was a fun one for those who like to wake up and check prices first thing (cough, me).

The entire board was washed in green.

Take a look at the majors and their daily / weekly gains:

  • BTC +2.9% to $51,367 (+19.8% on week)
  • ETH +2.8% to $2,750 (+16.6% on week)
  • SOL +1.3% to $115.26 (+21% on week)

Other recent and notable coins saw major gains as well:

  • SEI +15% to $0.86
  • DYM +6.75% to $7.60
  • WIF +15% to $445M market cap

Majors are moving, alt-L1s are moving, and memecoins are moving.

What a morning!

Oh, and the BTC ETF inflows aren't slowing down.

Yesterday another $630M in inflows was recorded. That pushed the 4-day total to $2B and a whopping $3.8B since they opened on <checks notes> January 11.

Who knows how long these levels of inflows will continue, but let's enjoy the ride while it lasts.
