Neo Candy has begun distributing NEP-17 CANDY airdrops through Mercurial App’s N3 Trader. CANDY is a community token designed to reward people for interacting with dApps in the Neo ecosystem. The goal for the token is to strengthen and grow the Neo community through supporting various projects. Neo Candy was created by Yannick Koitzsch, a Neo community developer working on the NekoHit crowdfunding platform, and NeoLend, a DeFi lending protocol built on Neo N3.

For a chance to claim CANDY, users must connect to N3 Trader with a NeoLine or O3 Wallet and complete an active trade offering the NEP-17 token. The Neo Candy team will randomly open trades on the platform that users can execute. At the time of press, several sporadic trades ranging up to 10,000 CANDY for 0.00000001 GAS have been completed. The team also intends to randomly airdrop CANDY to users that complete any trade until around 12:00 p.m. (UTC) on Thursday, Dec. 9.

The Neo Candy team says it will distribute the tokens in a free and fair process through airdrops, contests, giveaways, tipbots, competitions, and games. The total supply of CANDY is 9 billion tokens.

CANDY will be used for playing mini-games, where users can spend CANDY and potentially win more. The Candice and Candy Lottery mini-games are slated for Q1 2022 launch, and Candyland later in 2022. Candice is a two-player dice game where the player rolling the higher number wins the stakes. Candy Lottery will allow users to purchase tickets with CANDY for a chance to win a jackpot. And Candyland is an in-browser game that will offer a staking mechanism to earn interest in CANDY.

Looking forward, Neo Candy will announce upcoming airdrops across its social media accounts. Neo Candy doesn’t have a whitepaper, but the team intends to release one in 2022.
