😍 3 Top-Performing DeFi Projects to Watch for Potential Token Launch and Airdrop

By | | 28 Jan 2021



Starting from Compound, liquidity mining has become a must for DeFi projects to attract users’ attention. Oh, not “user”, we should call it “farmer” which is an occupation that people are envious of in the dapp industry. For DeFi Projects, it has been proved that issuing a governance token and provide a liquidity mining feature to your project will help to boost your project users/transaction and volume. 


The above graph has proved that after Compound issued its token $COMP, its number of users/transactions and volume have experienced a sharp increase.


When a DeFi project issued its token, most likely it will first airdrop to users who once used their platform. Some lucky people have already got a large amount of money airdrop. You must still remember 1inch’s Christmas gifts. 90 million $1INCH tokens have been airdropped to users and a user received millions of dollars worth of $1INCH tokens. And we introduce the high potential DeFi project BadgerDAO to you on 7th Dec, just a month later, its Bitcoin pegged token $DIGG launch and airdrop to all BadgerDAO users. $DIGG price soon rose up to 3x the Bitcoin price and became the most expensive cryptocurrency.


Envious of their luck? It is not 100% about luck actually. You can “prepare” for it by analyzing the data on to find the next potential DeFi projects and get ready for it.

Check the DeFi Ranking page on, you can easily see which DeFi projects are ranking in the top but without a token issued yet, then they are the targets that deserve your in-depth data analysis. 


Today, we are going to introduce 3 top-performing DeFi projects that are possible to issue and airdrop tokens in the future based on our data analysis. Don’t miss out the chance this time!
