Miles Deutscher, a cryptocurrency analyst, announced to his 446,900 social media followers that testnet airdrops represent the simplest method for accumulating wealth in the crypto sector.

Deutscher told his followers that there are “many more to come this year.”

Testnet Airdrops Not as Lucrative, Easier to Access

In a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter), Deutscher acknowledged that while testnet airdrop payouts may not be as substantial as mainnet airdrops, they serve as an excellent opportunity for newer investors to hone their on-chain skills without assuming excessive risk.

“Testnet airdrops are the easiest way to turn $0 into thousands of dollars. It’s the closest thing you can get to “free money” in crypto.”

Essentially, testnet airdrops operate by rewarding users who actively participate in testing the network.

This benefits the network by enabling bug identification and showcasing the platform to users, thus generating word-of-mouth momentum for the project.

He also highlights Metis, Shardeum, Particle, and Data Ownership Protocol as other testnet airdrop opportunities worth exploring.
