How to Get the Hydra Airdrop and Start Staking for 75% + APY

Before you begin

I strongly recommend signing up for LockTrip. LockTrip is a travel marketplace offering up to 60% savings off hotel accommodation, created by the makers of HYDRA chain. By signing up and booking hotels there, you are supporting the Hydra Chain and LockTrip, since 3% of every booking’s value is used to buy and burn the LOC token, and every transaction uses HYDRA! You can also become an affiliate and earn a lifetime 3% commission for all of your referrals’ bookings!

Step 1 — Get some LOC

If you already have some LOC on the Ethereum blockchain (ERC20 LOC), you need to swap it before continuing. Follow these instructions to perform the swap. You can track the progress of your swap here. Once you have completed the swap, go to Step 3.

Step 2 — Get a HYDRA Wallet

You cannot participate in the HYDRA airdrop with your LOC on an exchange. You must withdraw it to your own HYDRA wallet (send your LOC to your HYDRA receive address). There are two options for storing your LOC in a HYDRA wallet: the webwallet or the installable wallet. The main difference between the two is the installable wallet can be used to stake your HYDRA once received. The webwallet cannot be used for staking.

Step 3 — Complete KYC

The law under which LockTrip operates requires that you complete KYC in order to receive the HYDRA airdrop. Unfortunately there are some countries (including the USA) which are prohibited. You can complete KYC here. You will need to enter your HYDRA wallet address that contains your LOC from Step 1 / 2. Note that driver’s licenses are not a valid form of ID. You will need a passport or national ID card. You can check the progress of your KYC here, under “KYC Status”.

Step 4 — Stake Your HYDRA (Optional)

Staking is not required to receive the airdrop, however, it’s a great way to further capitalize on it. Using a raspberry pi is a great way to do this, and it’s actually much simpler than setting up AWS. In order to stake, you must install the staking wallet on your computer or on a hosted server, such as AWS. If you are staking on your own computer, it must be left on 24/7.
