Wallets

Definitions:

Airdrop: When tokens are sent to a wallet address without being purchased.  Can be used for promotions – projects sending out small balances to a large number of wallets to gain exposure.  Can also be used by spam/scam tokens to trick wallets into connecting to certain sites.  Do not connect your wallet to unknown sites in order to sell airdropped tokens.

If you’re hesitant about a coins validity – check the known scams section – or ask in our forums.  You can also check a token on BSCscan.  Check your wallet address, and the token dropdown.  Any tokens that have taken the steps to become verified and show a dollar amount, are generally established projects.
