What is LayerZero?

LayerZero is an omnichain interoperability protocol designed to lightweight messaging across chains. It provides authentic and guaranteed message delivery with configurable uptime.

Core features:

  • Relayers - Perform a critical role in the LayerZero protocol by delivering messages and work in tandem with an Oracle to transmit messages between chains.

  • Oracle - Performs part of the LayerZero messaging protocol by moving data from chain to chain, each one has the task of moving a requested block header from a source chain to a destination chain.

  • Endpoint - The omnichain contracts for sending messages.

  • Interfaces - Developers may need one or more of these interfaces when working with LayerZero contracts.

LayerZero Labs has raised $135 million in a funding round co-host by Sequoia Capital, FTX Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz, along with investors such as Coinbase Ventures, PayPal Ventures, Tiger Global, Uniswap Labs and others.

The funding will go towards new omnichain developments, as LayerZero is also accelerating the development of decentralized cross-chain dApps.

How to qualify for $ZRO token?

The first method is: active voting.
Most projects use this method to potentially reward their community.

1. Governance

Be an active DAO voter of Stargate Finance โœ…

  • Buy at least 1 $STG on Uniswap (or other) & choose a network (AVAX/FANTOM/BSC/POLYGON/ETH/ARB).

  • Move to the website & stake your $STG to get $veSTG voting power.
    Note: You will be able to participate in the next available votes.

Stake your $STG to get $veSTG.
Stake your $STG to get $veSTG.
  • Visit Snapshot website & keep voting on Governance Proposals regularly. We already cast our votes for the following proposals & secure roles on

2. Testnets:

The second method is: interacting with Testnets.

Letโ€™s dive into them โฌ‡๏ธ:

C. Conclusion

Layer Zero is intended to be a base layer for multi-chain applications that will allow inter-chain communication and revolutionize bridges as we know them today.
Plenty of projects are interested by the tech behind LayerZero Labs & we can interact with several platforms on Testnet & Mainnet.

If you have time and the resources, interacting with the platforms above can enhance your chance to be eligible for the $ZRO airdrop. If curious, their code is available here.

Moreover, some of the platforms listed above donโ€™t even have a token yet. It may be possible to kill two birds with one stone by interacting with the projects above.

As usual, before investing or using platforms on Mainnet, please DYOR.
You can loose your money while interacting wrongly with a platform (e.g. Rage Trade).

Never use money you canโ€™t afford to lose to hunt an airdrop and donโ€™t spend your bag on fee while bridging on every platform using the LayerZero technology.

More projects will be using the technology and will release their Testnet & Mainnet.
Keep an eye on them or simple join us on Twitter or Discord to be alerted.


If you like NFTs speculation, probably good to mention that the co-founder & CEO of LayerZero Labs, Bryan Pellegrino is showing a Gh0stly Gh0sts as PFP (Blur, Opensea).
