Recently, Starkware launched its long-awaited airdrop. Since most previous airdrops caused a lot of controversy, people gradually stopped being surprised by airdrops, and the same is true this time.

So why does this happen over and over again? Some of the ideas people may hear include:

· Insiders just want to sell off and cash out billions

· The team knew nothing about it and had no suitable consultants

· Whales should be given more priority because they bring TVL

· Airdrops are about democratizing what cryptocurrency means

· Without farmers, there is no use or stress testing of the protocol

· Misaligned airdrop incentives continue to have strange side effects
