StepN’s GMT Airdrops, The Governance Token

I would like to start by providing a brief introduction to airdrops here. Cryptocurrency airdrops are promotional tools that help startups reach a wider audience by giving away tokens to loyal users. This concept is similar to an IPO (Initial Public Offering), except that the coins are given away instead of sold. It is done to enhance awareness of the project as well as to increase ownership of the coin by providing incentives to investors.

The redemption process for airdropped tokens varies from one crypto application to another. There are some apps where the airdropped tokens are automatically deposited into the users’ wallets, which means that users do not have to do anything to receive the tokens. Alternatively, in many cases, users will have to take the initiative to claim the free tokens by following the instructions provided by the project.

What is STEPN?

STEPN, an Australian-based blockchain fitness app provider, provides blockchain technology-based fitness apps. It is possible for users to use this service for a limited period of time, by purchasing NFTs for the limited period. The user can get GST tokens by carrying out specific exercises and earning them in return for the GST tokens offered by the platform.

The STEPN program is a Web3 based application and also a “move-to-earn” game based on Solana technology. If you are walking, jogging, or running outside you can earn native tokens of GST by using the NFT application. By earning native tokens of GST you will be able to obtain new Sneakers and level up. Since launching at the end of December, the game has experienced steady growth in popularity. It features an in-app Marketplace where members can lease or sell Sneakers, and GST earnings are deposited in their Wallets, which have a swap feature built into them.

STEPN Tokens?

There are two tokens in STEPN: a game token – Green Satoshi Token (GST) – and a governance token – Green Metaverse Token (GMT).The GMT token is the native governance token of STEPN and can be used in the following ways

  • A stake in governance corresponds to the locking period.
  • GMT earns revenue by enabling in-app features such as sneaker upgrades and sneaker minting.
  • The longer the locking period, the more voting power a stake has.Managing the net profit is decided by GMT holders through the Treasury.

According to the following tweet StepN’s governance token, GMT, was airdropped to its early adopter and supporter users on 3/15.
