RARI is the Governance Token of the Rarible NFT Platform and the first of it’s kind in the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) Space.
I have heard rumblings about earning RARI through trading NFTs recently, it intrigued me, so I digged deeper!
Searching Twitter I quickly found this tweet by DclBlogger:
Very interesting!!! I checked my most active NFT trading wallet and yes, I had nearly 200 RARI (worth over 4 ETH at the time of writing!). Excellent!
So, how do you do this? This is my quick guide to help you out. If you’re reading this article, then you’re probably in the NFT space. Either through Blockchain Gaming, or NFT Art collecting. So I’m presuming, that you understand the Web3 mechanics (e.g. connecting a Metamask account).
- Go to https://app.rarible.com/ and click the Connect wallet button:
2. On the banner at the top, click the Governance tab, then click the $RARI Token button:
This takes you to the $RARI Token Governance Page:
3. On this page it will display the amount of RARI Tokens that you can claim. The claim mechanism is through your connected Wallet and will cost you ETH Gas fees. Here is a screenshot of one of my alternate accounts.
4. Claim your token, and that is it. You have your Free RARI Tokens for previously trading NFTs. The $RARI page also explains why this AirDrop has happened:
From the RARI FAQ:
If you haven’t received your RARI in the first waves of the airdrop, but you know you have significant NFT holdings that you purchased on a platform that records data on-chain (check eligibility criteria above!), please fill out this form: http://rarible.typeform.com/to/QuS2XQ9x/.
If you comply with the requirements, you will receive $RARI in the third wave of the airdrop. The exact dates are to be announced later.
5. So you have your RARI, what to do with it.
You could sell it for ETH if you wish (this is what I have done). Uniswap has the highest liquidity and the direct Uniswap link is here:
Rarible have a great article all about it here: https://medium.com/@rarible/introducing-rari-the-first-governance-token-in-the-nft-space-5dbcc55b6c43
The End Notes!
I have had a request to add a ETH Donation/Tip address. If you would like to Tip me for this (who knows you may have got a huge RARI/ETH windfall lol) my ETH tipping address is: 0x57c877020427b9a772256979ffd7Df68c249A3b7
