Blockchain Interoperability: Connext, Tokensoft to Launch Crosschain Airdrops

Connext, the “pioneering” blockchain interoperability protocol, recently announced it is partnering with Tokensoft, the token launch and distribution platform, to launch Crosschain Airdrops as a Service.

For the “first” time, airdrop recipients “can claim their tokens on any chain without the need to bridge or pay unnecessary gas fees.” This partnership promises “further accessibility to token holders while allowing token creators to reach their users more effectively across chains.”

Crosschain airdrops will also be “capable of leveraging the open xERC20 token standard recently proposed by Connext and adopted by Alchemix, allowing for zero-slippage crosschain transfers and better security for token creators.”

With the final snapshot taken, Connext will showcase this technology “with their long-awaited airdrop of NEXT on September 5th at 3 pm CET.” Users can now “check their eligibility at”

Unlike traditional airdrops, this technology “allows token creators to airdrop their tokens to any chain users prefer, alleviating the need for users to claim on Ethereum and pay excessive bridging and gas fees to their chain of choice.”

Today, token creators can “leverage this service to airdrop to Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, Binance Smart Chain, and Gnosis Chain, with support for several additional chains planned by the end of the year.” This collaborative product “leverages Connext’s interoperability protocol and Tokensoft’s robust token issuance platform, creating a seamless experience for token creators and recipients alike.”

Mason Borda, Co-Founder and CEO of Tokensoft, said:

“Blockchain applications are more interconnected than ever, a single application may be found deployed on several blockchains. We’re proud to launch with Connext to give communities the choice to access their favorite applications on their blockchain.”

The Crosschain Airdrop as a Service “taps into Connext’s interoperability protocol, using native bridges to allow for crosschain transfers that maintain the same level of trust minimization as the underlying chains themselves.”

It utilizes xERC20 tokens “that move across chains with zero slippage, and Connext’s network of routers speeds up transactions that might otherwise take time.”

Through Tokensoft’s platform, users entitled “to an airdrop can easily select their preferred chain and claim it directly to their wallet without the need to interact with third-party services like bridges or DEXes.”

Connext co-Founder Arjun Bhuptani commented on today’s news:

“In today’s increasingly interchain world, in order to make sure their protocol is accessible, projects need to ensure their tokens are on multiple chains from day one. This is a great pattern for ways that people should launch tokens. We are excited to work with Tokensoft as one of the largest token platforms. Combining our strengths to make Crosschain Airdrops is a win-win for the web3 community. This service aims to allow token creators to create a broader and more inclusive community of token holders across all ecosystems. The partnership between Connext and Tokensoft will change the way we think about airdrops and building decentralized communities.”

Token creators interested in conducting crosschain airdrops “can contact Tokensoft using this form.”

Connext is excited to “launch a first-of-its-kind airdrop to its users across Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, and Gnosis Chain.”

Beginning now, users can “check their eligibility at and, if qualified, be able to claim beginning on September 5th at 3 pm CET.”

Connext has also “published its DAO Constitution and call for delegates.”
