Aethir EcoDrop: New Benefits for Aethir Nodes


Aethir’s Mainnet, along with our ATH utility token, was launched yesterday, and today, June 13, we already have a bunch of new surprises for the Aethir community. We announced two weeks ago that six of our exclusive ecosystem partners are conducting airdrops to Aethir Checker Node holders. The community was delighted by the news, but we’ve also said it was just the beginning of various ecosystem benefits and surprises awaiting Checker Node holders. Aethir EcoDrop isn’t a one-off event. It’s going to be a regular occurrence of massive benefits for our community from across the Aethir ecosystem. 

We are staying true to our word and announcing additional new airdrops and benefits from the 100+ partner-strong Aethir ecosystem. Our partners from across the AI, DePIN, and gaming sectors recognize the importance of Aethir's decentralized GPU cloud vision for the future of Web3. We constantly strive to onboard new, impactful, and meaningful partners to establish mutually beneficial relationships that empower the next generation of AI and gaming platforms with top-notch cloud computing resources. 

Aethir’s partners know that the Aethir community is a crucial driver of the Aethir DePIN stack, which runs on over 75,000 Checker Nodes distributed to more than 22,000 community members. By introducing unique benefits for Aethir Checker Nodes, our partners are rewarding the moving force behind the largest GPU DePIN in the world.

Who Is Rewarding Aethir Checker Node Holders?

In this round of Aethir EcoDrop, we have an exciting selection of six ecosystem partners across the AI and gaming industries, including Cookie3, Deverse World, Hybrid, Moemate, PlayFi, and ZKcandy.
