  • MetaMask has launched a new feature to help airdrop hunters.
  • The new feature promises to allow users to see all the airdrops they are eligible for in a single interface and within seconds.
  • Find out how it works and how you can use it.

As the crypto bull market gathers steam, airdrops are all the rage again, with new tokens being announced by projects every other day. With this rise in airdrops, however, it can become difficult for users to keep track of the opportunities for which they qualify.

Enter MetaMask‘s Daylight API integration. With this integration, MetaMask claims that users will be able to check their airdrop and NFT claim eligibility across multiple chains within “seconds.”


What is Daylight? How does it work, and how can you use it within MetaMask to check your airdrop eligibility? 

Let’s dive in!

What Is Daylight?

Daylight is a tool that recommends transactions to users based on their on-chain activity.

MetaMask announced its integration of Daylight’s API on Tuesday, April 9.

How Daylight Works

Daylight works by using “a variety of social factors.” These factors include whether you hold the required token, a related token, or an NFT made by a creator you have minted from before. 


With these factors, the tool can predict whether you qualify for an airdrop or NFT claim across multiple chains. Networks supported by Daylight include Ethereum, Optimism, Arbitrum, Base, Zora, and Polygon.

How You Can Check Your Airdrop Eligibility on MetaMask Leveraging Daylight

You can check your airdrop eligibility on MetaMask in just a few simple steps.

Go to MetaMask Portfolio: MetaMask Portfolio is a dashboard for all your crypto holdings across multiple networks and can be accessed via the official website.

Locate and Open the Explore Tab: After opening MetaMask Portfolio, navigate to the Explore tab. You will find Explore as the second option in the left sidebar. On mobile, you will have to tap the three horizontal lines on the top right corner of the page to find it. Click on it.

Navigate to the Eligible Airdrop Section: The Eligible Airdrop section can be found at the bottom of the screen. To see it on mobile, however, you might need to scroll down. Below this Eligible Airdrop section is also the Trending NFT section. To see the airdrops you are eligible for, connect your wallet. Your eligible airdrops will immediately appear.

You can tap on the individual airdrop tiles to learn more about the tokens and also claim them immediately.

On the Flipside 

  • Beyond the Daylight API integration, which will likely favor core crypto natives, MetaMask has also recently shipped features to help broader crypto adoption in recent months. The most recent example of this is the application’s partnership with Revolut to foster crypto payments.

Why This Matters 

With so many airdrops launching in recent weeks, it can be hard for crypto natives to keep up or know what they might be eligible for. MetaMask’s recent Daylight API integration promises to significantly simplify things for the app’s over 30 million users.
