Web3 glossary


A crypto address is a unique sequence of letters and numbers. It can be used to send or receive cryptocurrency. An interesting feature of blockchain addresses is that they are public, and through a blockchain explorer we can see how much an address holds as well as transactions in and out of the address. However, privacy based cryptocurrencies such as Monero and Zcash are an exception.


An airdrop refers to the distribution of tokens or NFTs to wallets for free. In order to be eligible for these rewards, wallets may have to meet certain criteria by holding a specific token or doing some task. Airdrops are mainly used as a marketing strategy.
