[RFC] HOP Airdrop Sybil Hunter Distribution


When the Hop DAO was launched, Sybil hunters submitted reports that ultimately removed Sybil attackers from the HOP airdrop, resulting in the DAO keeping almost 3.5 million tokens that would have otherwise been in the hands of Sybil attackers. Per the Hop DAO introduction post, this proposal seeks to reward these Sybil hunters with 25% of the saved tokens now, a year after the start of the DAO.

Beyond the direct benefits of token recovery, the Sybil hunters also contributed to promoting the DAO in indirect ways. Both the SAFE airdrop and the Arbitrum airdrop adopted elements of Hop’s airdrop design as a result of the hunters’ effort and innovation, thus validating and enhancing the DAO’s influence. Each of those teams specifically called out Hop as inspiration during their airdrop process.

Specific Details

  • Total tokens to distribute: 869,566.51
  • Total recipients: 35
  • Distribution method: The DAO will send funds to an OpenZeppelin PaymentSplitter contract that allows the addresses to claim tokens sent to the contract. The address of the verified contract is 0xD62524e1Bd146AB1a8e3D03ea8646870E3684fEe. The contract claim start time will be Fri Jun 09 2023 10:48:36 GMT+0000, which is the same start time as all of the HOP vesting contracts created at the beginning of the DAO’s lifetime.

Next Steps

Based on the process defined in HIP-13, this RFC will move from the forum to a proposal on Snapshot and subsequently onto Tally, assuming consensus is reached at each stage.

Really impressive/interesting effort all around

Agreed. If there is no contention here, I am going to work with a delegate to get this posted on Snapshot soon in order for this RFC to complete the governance cycle within the timeframe in the original post.


This RFC is now in its Temperature Check stage on Snapshot.

I’m voting yes. I think Hop set a gold standard that likely can’t ever be fully repeated again with the Sybil Hunter program. Very happy to see the distributions move forward.

voted yes:


Thanks for the suggestion and indeed the work done by the airdrop sybil hunters is cool. This is an easy YES vote.

Great work by the Sybil hunters!

Voted yes, well deserved by those who took the time to track these things down.

Snapshot temperature check has passed, proposal moved to on-chain vote.

Voted yes for this onchain

I voted yes to both, this was a commitment to users that had already put in the work to identify sybil addresses, so congratulations and thanks to all for your efforts.
