Getting on an NFT allowlist is generally pretty simple. That’s not to say that you don’t have to work for it though. Below are some basic steps to get on an allowlist.
1. Find a good NFT project before it launches
You can only get on an allowlist if the project hasn’t launched yet. That means you need to find a good NFT project ahead of its launch date so that you have time to get on the allowlist. Utilizing social media platforms like Twitter or joining an NFT Discord group (here’s ours) is a great way to find an NFT project before it ever launches.
2. Follow the project on social media and join the Discord
Once you find an NFT project that sparks your interests, make sure to follow it on social media and join its Discord server. Oftentimes, allowlist opportunities are presented to the community via Discord or by announcing it on their social platforms. Following all of a project’s channels ensures that you won’t miss your chance.
3. Complete the eligibility requirements
The time has finally come, the NFT project you’ve been following is ready to offer its community the chance to join the allowlist. So, what do you have to do? Well, It depends on the project.
Generally, projects will offer allowlist spots to those who are willing to complete a simple task. These tasks can include liking, sharing, and tagging others in the comments on the project’s social media post, or by bringing the most new people into the project’s Discord. Each project differs in the way they give out spots— some tasks can include puzzles, riddles, real life challenges, and more.
Regardless, the only way you will know about these opportunities is if you pay attention. That’s why it’s important to be active on all the platforms the NFT project is active on.
