What is a crypto giveaway and how to participate?

In simple words, a crypto and Bitcoin giveaway is a promotion campaign when a company gives away crypto prizes for free between random participants. Promos are usually time-limited. But if you join the CEX.IO crypto giveaway on the last day, you still have time to submit entries and get a chance to win.

To take part, you need to complete a few simple steps. As a rule, entries include following us on social networks, sharing some news with your followers, or giving feedback. Also, there can be other actions listed. The more of them you submit, the higher your chances to win.

You can complete the giveaway tasks in a few minutes, even during your coffee break. And if Lady Fortune smiles, you can win a crypto prize.

What is a crypto airdrop?

Airdrops are also a marketing technique aimed to attract investors and supporters by sending them a portion of crypto tokens. It is commonly used by startups issuing a new cryptocurrency. Thus, to participate in the airdrop a user should have a crypto wallet for receiving the tokens.

Remember that crypto scams are now a sharpened question. When deciding whether to participate in the sweepstakes, like giveaway or airdrop, check if they’re launched by a trusted company. People believe sweet promises to get easy money quickly and in most cases do not question the legality of the promo. Keep in mind that if someone asks you to pay for participation or make an initial so-called refundable deposit, this is probably a scam.

What to know about Dogecoin (DOGE) before entering the giveaway?

The Dogecoin blockchain was launched on the concept, or rather an idea, that a project associated with a joke can attract more people than Bitcoin technology.

In years after the launch, DOGE boosted in by a hundred times. Most experts connect the price jump with the interest of world influencers like Snoop Dogg, Gene Simmons, Elon Musk, and others. Analytics believe that the price of Dogecoin depends on its popularity among famous people. In other words, when Mask talks about DOGE, it reacts with a price boost. So when trading this meme coin, you should lie on the behavioral finance theory. The fundamental and technical analysis comes second place.

How to make money by trading Bitcoin and crypto?

Mostly, crypto traders are speculating on the prices of cryptocurrencies, trying to buy them at the lowest possible rate and sell for the higher price. However, with CEX.IO you can multiply your holdings with almost no effort. Just join our Staking program.


Those are virtual currencies pledged to the value of traditional assets. Their main advantage is a stable market price. For instance, AurusGOLD (AWG) price is pledged to the gold value and moves independently from the general crypto market trend.

DeFi tokens

Many experts believe that the rise of the Decent Finance sector caused a crypto boom in 2020. At that time a lot of Ethereum-based projects presented a comparingly new vision of the crypto industry. Digital currencies find their place in the finance system and offer faster, cost-effective and decentralized solutions for individuals and businesses. Still, DeFi tokens are considered very risky due to their extreme volatility.
