Venom is a highly scalable Layer 0 multi-blockchain with the first license to operate from the ADGM (Abu Dhabi Global Markets). Their blockchain infrastructure consists of fast, low-fee transactions with infinity sharding that supports CBDCs and WEB3 applications.
They plan to bridge the gap between the traditional financial system and the decentralized world of cryptocurrency. Its target markets include CBDC, CBDC-backed stablecoin, Proof of Reserves mechanisms, finance for the unbanked and microtransactions. Some of Venom Blockchains unique features include dynamic sharding, a hybrid consensus protocol, and a distinctive asynchronous architecture.
It is further reported that Venom is working with authorities of a few countries for financial inclusion by leveraging its highly scalable technology to bring blockchain into many emerging markets. The idea behind it being that many of these emerging markets rely on micropayments whereby access to a traditional bank account is not possible. Given Venoms minimal transactional costs, it allows for cross border transactions.
The native token of the Venom blockchain ecosystem is $VENOM. Currently an inflationary utility token, it is poised to switch to a deflationary model in the future.
Venom has not formally announced an airdrop however their white paper does detail the following in regards to a token release:
"The Venom blockchain's initial supply of tokens for issue during the Mainnet launch is 7,200,000,000 VENOM. Of this initial supply, 25.5% is for unlock and immediately available, while 74.5% is under lock. Tokens allocated to validators will be used to form the initial validators pool and provide incentives for users participating in validator programs. Validator programs are designed to attract new participants to the network who are ready to support decentralization and network stability."
Venom further details that 22% allocation of the tokens will be reserved for the community with a 90 month linear vesting period.
Like most airdrops, you are required to engage with chain through various actions. Given that Venom is still in Testnet, all interactions are free and require little effort. Their website furthermore provides a simple to use interface for all tasks to be completed.
