Tensor airdrop: The TNSR token guide

Jonathan G.
tensor TNSR airdrop

    Tensor is one of the top NFT marketplaces in web3.

    Within just one year of its launch, it exploded in growth and popularity to become the preferred marketplace for the Solana community.

    In this guide, we’ll explore all things Tensor and highlight what we know about the TNSR airdrop so far.

    Quick View

    • Project: Tensor
    • Token Ticker: $TNSR
    • Blockchain: Solana
    • Sector: Non-Fungible Token (NFTs)
    • Business Model: NFT trading marketplace
    • Ethereum Counterpart: Blur

    What does Tensor do?

    Tensor is an NFT marketplace aggregator designed for professional traders to buy, sell, and trade NFTs on Solana. Having said that, Tensor also offers a “Lite” mode with a sleek interface and streamlined features for common collectors. This multipronged approach is bearing fruit, as the trading platform has become Solana’s leading NFT marketplace in terms of monthly trading volume.

    Whereas OG NFT marketplace Magic Eden seems to cater to casual NFT buyers, Tensor’s focus on all types of NFT buyers seems to be paying off, as its users tend to trade higher volumes.

    As for features, Tensor offers an NFT minting launchpad, NFT royalty customizing tools, and AMM-styled liquidity pools.

    What is the TNSR token?

    As of now, not many NFT marketplaces have a governance token. But Tensor, with TNSR, seems to be following a similar path as Blur with its governance token.

    Mainly, TNSR will be used by the community to manage key parameters of the Tensor protocols.

    • Total supply: 1 billion
    • Initial airdrop: 125 million (12.5%)

    How to qualify for the TNSR airdrop?

    Similar to Blur, Tensor rolled out a rewards program through multiple rounds: Season 1-4.

    How it worked was like this: After each season, you got different loot boxes based on the number of points you collect throughout the season from your activity.

    In the early seasons, these loot boxes contained shards necessary for minting a Tensorian.

    The later seasons, however, seemed to specifically focus on the TNSR allocation of users that traded on Tensor.

    When will the TNSR airdrop happen?

    Tensor opened the TNSR airdrop checker on Monday, April 8th, 2024. Check your allocation using only official links from our banners and Explore tab or Tensor’s official Twitter account.

    ⚠️ Beware: During airdrop season, scammers create imitation accounts to trick you into clicking phishing links and wallet drainers. Please exercise caution. Only click on, and visit, links from Tensor’s official Twitter account, and do not respond to direct messages from unknown parties related to the TNSR airdrop—regardless if you’re on X (formerly known as Twitter), Discord, Telegram, or other platforms.
