Diligent effort was put into making sure no one was overlooked. If you think you should have qualified but did not, you can submit a request here: this form.
The most recent update of the airdrop checker and eligibility list includes additional cohorts of users - these include community groups such as the Wormhole Fellows and Degods/y00ts community members, and additional groups of onchain users. The checker website also received several updates, such as improved Sui and Algorand wallet compatibility.
Users who checked eligibility before the latest update may still see nothing if they don't clear their cache. Please do a hard refresh and check again.
A number of users raised concerns around the risk of attributing all rewards to wallets with lost keys or compromised security. Rewards were therefore distributed across all user wallets - sending and receiving - to maximize the chance that users can claim their entire allocation. Note that rewards for the same EVM wallet used across multiple chains were aggregated into a single “Ethereum” reward. Therefore, users might see larger allocations attributed to their EVM wallet addresses relative to non-EVM wallets.
Rewards are distributed across all sending and receiving wallets within an ownership cluster, regardless of the number of transactions any single wallet within that cluster may have participated in. In the example below, Wallet E (0x696) has only one transaction associated with it. However, since the cumulative value transferred across all wallets exceeds the qualifying threshold, User A is eligible and their rewards are distributed across all wallets, including Wallet E (0x696). We understand this may cause confusion, as users might not have realized the analysis could attribute their ownership to all interconnected wallets across different ecosystems.

TOKENOMICS

The total supply of W is 10 billion tokens. See the W Tokenomics blog post for further details.
The initial circulating supply of W tokens is 1.8 billion. The token will be allocated across six main categories: Guardian Nodes, Community & Launch, Core Contributors, Ecosystem & Incubation, Strategic Network Participants, and the Foundation Treasury, with 82% initially locked and set to unlock over four years. The tokenomics structure is designed to support Wormhole's long-term success, stability, and progressive decentralization.
82% of the W supply will be locked at launch. This amount will be unlocked over four years. This gradual release is designed to support Wormhole's long-term success and stability. Read more about the tokenomics and release schedule here.
W will be distributed across six main categories: Guardian Nodes (5.1%), Community & Launch (17%), Core Contributors (12%), Ecosystem & Incubation (31%), Strategic Network Participants (11.6%), and the Foundation Treasury (23.3%).
The "Community & Launch" category will support the early stages of Wormhole's decentralized and permissionless future. Of the total 17% allocated to this category, 11% will be unlocked at the Token Generation Event (TGE) to facilitate the initial distribution phases, including the TGE-related airdrop. Approximately 6.78% of this 11% will be used for this airdrop to reward community members who have actively used the product and supported the ecosystem. This airdrop is a direct acknowledgment of their contributions and engagement.

The remaining 6% of the "Community & Launch" allocation is scheduled to be unlocked four months after the TGE, in line with the overall Token Release Schedule.

5% of the “Community & Launch” category (~81% of this airdrop) is allocated towards users of onchain Wormhole ecosystem applications. 1.29% of the “Community & Launch” category (~19% of this airdrop) is allocated towards community members such as active members of the Wormhole Discord, various NFT communities, the top 10,000 Pyth stakers, and the Monad community, to recognize their active support and engagement within the Wormhole community. The Wormhole Foundation is committed to rewarding active product users and Wormhole community members, as they are vital in the Wormhole protocol's continued growth and success.
