How to Stay Involved with Aethir Beyond the Airdrop?


The long-awaited Aethir token generation event (TGE) is approaching rapidly. Our Aethir Cloud Drop campaign is ending soon, and the TGE is close to follow. The single most important moment of the Aethir DePIN stack launch is around the corner, and with the TGE, a whole new range of opportunities will open for our community. Aethir Cloud Drop has proved to be a booming success, with more than 600,000 participants and around the same number of earned airdrop badges. 

Community engagement has been astonishing. We've stayed true to our promises and included various additional Web3 communities in the airdrop campaign during the last couple of weeks. Now, as the end of Aethir Cloud Drop approaches, let's talk about how you can stay involved with Aethir beyond the airdrop and maximize your potential benefits in the Aethir decentralized GPU cloud ecosystem.

Our upcoming ATH utility token is the crucial element of the Aethir decentralized cloud infrastructure, connecting different aspects of Aethir's ecosystem through blockchain technology. Once Aethir's Mainnet goes live, our community members will be able to unlock ATH's full potential by earning, trading, participating in Aethir governance, and more.

The end of Aethir Cloud Drop will be the intro to our TGE and the start of the ATH token's Web3 journey.

Benefit From the Aethir Ecosystem as a Checker Node License Owner

After our TGE and the launch of Aethir Mainnet, our network of Checker Nodes will become operational and start to power the Aethir DePIN stack. Over 20,000 community members acquired 74,000 Checker Node license NFTs during our Whitelist and Public Node Sales in March. In April, we launched the testnet versions of our Checker Owner Portal and Checker Client GUI/CLI so that Checker Node license owners can get acquainted with the solutions they'll use to run and manage their nodes.

Checker Node operators are a critical component of the Aethir decentralized cloud infrastructure as they ensure the core operational mechanics of the Aethir GPU cloud network. Our vast network of Checker Nodes ensures that all GPU Containers in Aethir's ecosystem always provide optimal service quality. As a reminder, Aethir has over 2000 NVIDIA H100s and 40,000 additional top-shelf GPUs in its roster. The nodes monitor the connection between end-users of Aethir's GPU cloud services and the containers that provide them with GPU power. For their role in the Aethir DePIN stack, Checker Nodes will earn handsome ATH token rewards.

By running Aethir Checker nodes personally, on a VPS, or through a Node-as-a-Service (NaaS) provider, Checker Node License owners will earn 10% of the total ATH token supply. An extra 5% of the token supply is reserved for bonus rewards, which will be awarded to node owners with exceptional node uptime and no early withdrawals. Aethir will perform regular node performance evaluations to determine which nodes are eligible for bonus rewards. 

Become a Service Provider in Aethir's Network

While running Aethir Checker Nodes is essential for ensuring the stability of the Aethir GPU cloud infrastructure, our community members can also become computing service providers. Thanks to our recently launched Aethir Edge cloud computing device, anyone can join the Aethir ecosystem as a service provider.

The device is easy to use and doesn't require any advanced technical expertise. Users can facilitate a connection between the Aethir Edge and their computers through a Wi-Fi connection and start providing spare GPU capacity and bandwidth. Each Aethir Edge device is a Container in Aethir's network. While Aethir has a massive network of GPU provider partners, Aethir Edge was created to allow anyone to join the network and channel their idle computing power to our enterprise clients. 

With the launch of ATH, Aethir Edge owners will be able to power up their devices and earn ATH token rewards for contributing to the Aethir decentralized cloud infrastructure. We have reserved 23% of the total ATH token supply for Aethir Edge owners. 

Have a Say in the Governance of the Aethir DePIN Stack

Apart from allowing users to earn ATH token rewards by running Checker Nodes and Aethir Edge devices, the Aethir community will also have governance power by holding ATH tokens. We foster decentralization as a core principle of Web3 innovation, moving away from the centralized operational models of the Web 2.0 era. Community ownership is a vital element of Web3. In the spirit of decentralization, ATH token holders will be able to participate in the governance of the Aethir network. This means all decisions regarding the daily operations of the Aethir decentralized GPU cloud will be subject to community votes.

The future of the Aethir Checker Node Sale will be a prime example of community governance. After the ATH token generation event, Aethir will hold a governance vote to let the community decide whether to resume the Checker Node license sale or to burn the remaining 25,000+ Checker Node license NFTs and cap the number of node licenses to the currently distributed 74,000+. All decisions impacting the Aethir network's daily operations will be made through similar community governance votes. ATH will be the gateway that allows community members to have a say in Aethir's future.

Become an ATH Token Holder Through Aethir Cloud Drop

The Aethir Cloud Drop campaign is entering its final stage, with little time left for community members to join the airdrop campaign and secure an ATH token allocation. Fortunately, there are still a few days until the end of the campaign on 29 May. Joining Aethir Cloud Drop is quite simple. All you need to do is go to our official airdrop campaign website and connect your wallet to start earning badges. Check the description for each badge to learn more about its eligibility criteria.

After the end of Aethir Cloud Drop comes the ATH token generation event, which is the grand opening of Aethir's decentralized cloud infrastructure network for everyday use. It's not too late to get a front-row seat for the DePIN revolution headed by Aethir.
