Wazirx exchange

Wazirx exchange review.

Crypto projects are often preoccupied with different ways to promote themselves in a space full of loud and fast-moving players. One way involves handing out tokens to their users in return for learning, playing or even just walking around.

You may not need to buy or mine crypto to acquire some coins these days, but you do still have to give something in return – often it’s your time or attention. In some cases, you will still have to pay an initial lump sum to start earning income over time through your activities.

Whether these projects can prove sustainable in the long term is very much an open question.
