How to be Eligible for Sei Airdrop
To be eligible for the Sei Network airdrop, users will need to participate in their incentivized testnet program. This incentivized testnet is designed to reward early community members who interact with the Layer 1 blockchain and the applications that are being deployed on the protocol.
The proof is outlined on the official Sei Network Twitter account announced to the public that they will be assigning 1% of the token supply to the incentivized testnet. Continue reading our guide to find which applications to use to earn your airdrop whitelist spot.
1. Bridge to Sei Network
The first step as always to earn an airdrop from a new Layer 1 blockchain is to bridge to the network. If you are looking to bridge to Sei Network from Ethereum or other popular blockchains like Polygon, BNB Chain or Arbitrum, you will need to use the Vortex Bridge. Simply connect your wallet, select the token you want to bridge and finalize your transaction to transfer tokens to the network.
2. Trade on Vortex Protocol
Vortex Protocol is one of the first applications that has announced a partnership with the Sei Network. Investors can connect their Keplr or Cosmos wallet to the Vortex application and make a trade on their decentralized exchange (DEX) to earn tokens from the Sei Network airdrop.
3. Mint UXD Stablecoins
UXDProtocol is the first stablecoin application that has migrated to the Sei Network and is participating in their network incentivization scheme. To meet this eligibility requirement, users will need to visit the application to mint UXD stablecoins then stake it to the protocol. You can stake UXD stablecoins at https://stake.uxd.fi/.
What is Sei Network?
Sei Network is a new DeFi-specific blockchain deployed using the Cosmos SDK that is designed to enable an environment for custom-built DeFi applications.

The combination of these optimizations make it the best smart contract platform for new financial products to emerge like high-throughput DEX's, sports betting platforms and more.
