Learn About Wormhole ($W) Airdrop

Dear SafePal community,

As a blockchain agnostic crypto wallet suite, cross-chain interoperability is a big part of our ethos and focus. This is reflected in the support of 100+ blockchains in the SafePal wallet suite, and features such as SafePal swap and Gas Station, which aids in bridging and connectivity across chains.

Amongst other interoperability solutions is a leading blockchain connectivity provider Wormhole, which recently announced the airdrop of its $W token, which has been teased to be live on 3rd April 2024 11:30AM UTC.

SafePal is excited to share that $W will be supported on SafePal swap and Binance Dapp/Mini program in the SafePal mobile wallet. As part of SafePal’s mission to educate users, here is a brief overview of $W for informational purposes (readers should do their own research as this does not constitute financial advice):

About $W:

This function will be available on EVM chains with the launch of the token, followed by Solana.

In the long term, the governance of the Wormhole DAO, aims to potentially cover decisions with ranging from blockchain connection adjustments, smart contract upgrades, fee structuring, rate limit adjusting, and more in a transparent, inclusive and community-driven manner.
