Layer 2 bridge Hop protocol has distributed 20.5 million governance tokens (HOP) to its users in the form of an airdrop.
A total of 54.8 million tokens are available to be claimed by 145,329 eligible recipients, according to data from Dune Analytics.
Hop protocol currently supports Gnosis and Polygon as mainnet rollups, but will soon offer support for Optimism and Arbitirum.
The airdropped token allows holders to have a say in the official Hop DAO and the project’s future development.
At press time, HOP is trading at over 16 cents with the majority of volume taking place on Uniswap, according to CoinGecko.
Hop follows the trend of airdrops for early adopters in decentralised finance (DeFi) since the turn of the year. Last week, Optimism launched its airdrop which followed the likes of CowSwap and Connext.
