LayerZero is an omnichain interoperability protocol that enables interaction with decentralized applications across different blockchains.
In the LayerZero ecosystem, all decentralized applications (dApps) will communicate with each other through a built-in oracle and relayer. This means that users won't need cross-chain bridges to move assets between different networks, as funds will be automatically transferred during their interactions with various DeFi projects.

LayerZero is one of the most promising projects that offers airdrop potential. In this article, we discuss which protocols are most appropriate to interact with to have the greatest chance of rewards.

Financing (+ termination of the FTX deal)

Projects with significant external funding often provide the largest drops for early adopters. According to Crunchbase, LayerZero has raised $173 million from 27 major funds including Sequoia Capital, a16z, Coinbase, Binance, Tiger Global, Uniswap, PayPal Ventures, and others.

Additionally, Alameda Research and the venture arm of cryptocurrency exchange FTX invested in the project. However, after the bankruptcy of these platforms, LayerZero terminated their contracts and returned the funds to avoid negative associations.

Hinting at the token

Unlike many promising protocols, LayerZero has not publicly announced the prospect of an airdrop or token. However, a hint about the future ZRO asset is hidden in its own documentation.

For those hoping for an airdrop, interacting with the LayerZero ecosystem early on may prove worthwhile. It is noteworthy that all the projects are running on Mainnet, so actual funds will be required to participate. It's important to carefully assess the risks before acting.

This DeFi protocol enables cross-chain transfers, token exchange, and liquidity farming. The platform offers a variety of activities, including:
