An airdrop means distributing tokens for free to a preferred audience. In the case of Aiur, we’re giving tokens to early-adopter scientists, researchers and students. In order to participate you need to have an Ethereum wallet (and if you don’t, no worries, we’ll help you to set it up).
This is not your average Airdrop campaign where people around the world with crypto wallets get spammed. Quite the opposite. We will only airdrop tokens for validated researchers or current students requesting the tokens after completion of simple tasks.
Project Aiur aims to democratize science through blockchain-enabled disintermediation.
There are a number of problems in the world of science today hampering global progress. In an almost monopolized industry with incentive misalignments, a radical change is needed. The only way to change this is with a grassroots movement – of researchers and scientists, librarians, scientific societies, R&D departments, universities, students, and innovators – coming together. We need to remove the powerful intermediaries, create new incentive structures, build commonly owned tools to validate all research and build a common Validated Repository of human knowledge. A combination of blockchain and artificial intelligence provides the technology framework, but as with all research, the scientist herself needs to be in the Center. We hope you’ll join us.

Simply because we believe in building a solid foundation for our community and want to reward published researchers who have already made massive contributions to the world of science. It's only fair that the researchers are given a membership up front as part of the effort.
In order to validate who is eligible for Aiur airdrop, we’re asking the participants to a link to an OA research paper they’ve authored on Twitter, and then fill in a short form for formal registration.
Intitially, get access to premium Iris.ai services at a solid discount. Eventually, a lot more. Learn more here.
Yes, the public token sale is scheduled to begin in June. Learn more here.
The campaign is for published researchers and students aiming to be. If you consider yourself as a researcher, but haven’t published yet, that's okay too. Go through with the 3 steps as outlined above!
Our team will be more than happy to help with any technical issues. Ping us whenever needed!
In order to maintain a healthy and balanced ecosystem, we will be distributing the token airdrop tokens to our community after our public sale has been successfully done, and the token can be exchanged within our ecosystem.
To participate in the Aiur Airdrop, you need to set up an Ethereum ERC20 compatible wallet where you hold its private keys. Your private keys are necessary for interaction with smart contracts to transfer and receive tokens.
There are a number of wallets that support Ethereum ERC20 tokens. One of the most popular ones is MyEtherWallet. Here’s how to set it up:
We are distributing 10,000 tokens through the Airdrop; 5 AIUR tokens to students and researchers who have not yet published an Open Access article, and 15 AIUR tokens to anyone who has verifiably published Open Access!
