Celestia Genesis Drop
Celestia’s genesis block, expected later this year, will start the first modular data availability network. With it will arrive TIA, the native asset of Celestia.
Like in other permissionless protocols, TIA enables participation in network consensus and decentralised governance of network parameters and the community pool.
But core to Celestia’s mission is empowering anyone to launch their own blockchain in minutes, simply by paying for blobspace with TIA. This enables rollup developers to tap into the abundant blobspace enabled by Data Availability Sampling (DAS), the first blockchain architecture which scales with the number of users. In the modular era, developers have the freedom to choose whatever asset(s) they want as a gas token or currency of their rollup—or can opt to bootstrap quickly using TIA.
To advance that vision, today we’re initiating the Genesis Drop.
The Genesis Drop invites 7,579 developers and 576,653 onchain addresses on Ethereum rollups, Cosmos Hub, and Osmosis to join Celestia, allowing them to pay for blobspace and secure the network from the first block.

From today until 17 October, 2023, 12:00 UTC, eligible developers and addresses can add their address to the Celestia genesis block by visiting genesis-celestia. Tokens claimed via the Genesis Drop will be accessible directly in-wallet from the first block.

Please note: genesis-celestia is the only way to access the Celestia Genesis Drop. Neither the claiming site, any member of the Celestia Labs team, nor any member of the Celestia Foundation will ever ask you to enter your private key or transfer tokens of any kind from your wallet.

The Genesis Drop allocates 60 million TIA (6% of total supply) across the categories described in the table below. TIA documentation provides further details of Celestia’s token model, supply, and fee market.

Bootstrapping new rollups
A core part of the Celestia vision is that deploying a blockchain should be as easy as deploying a smart contract. In the modular era, developers no longer need to issue a token to launch their own blockchain.
Similarly to ETH on Ethereum-based rollups, developers may opt to bootstrap their chain quickly by using TIA as a gas token and currency, in addition to paying for data availability. In this mode, developers can focus on creating their application or execution layer, instead of having to issue a token right away.
Staking and network governance
As a permissionless network built with Cosmos SDK, Celestia uses proof-of-stake to secure its own consensus. Like in other Cosmos networks, any user can help secure the network by delegating their TIA to a Celestia validator for a portion of the validator’s staking rewards.
Rough consensus will govern Celestia’s decentralised core development roadmap via the Celestia Improvement Proposal (CIP) process, providing offchain governance similar to EIPs in Ethereum or BIPs in Bitcoin. More details on the CIP process will be released in the coming weeks.
TIA also allows the community to play a critical role in decentralised governance over key parts of Celestia from day one, such as voting on network parameters and governing the community pool.
Network parameters:
Starting at network launch, TIA holders can vote on a set of network parameters, including Celestia’s block size, max square size and other parameters outlined here.
Community pool:
Starting at network launch, Celestia’s community pool receives 2% of all Celestia block rewards.
TIA holders may vote to spend TIA from the community pool and fund ecosystem initiatives.
Additional details around governing network parameters and the community pool are provided in the Celestia docs.
Genesis Drop
Celestia’s Genesis Drop invites a wide range of eligible developers and onchain addresses to build and contribute to Celestia’s modular ecosystem from inception.
Eligibility for the Genesis Drop falls under four categories, two allocating TIA to 7579 developers and two allocating TIA to 576,653 onchain addresses on Ethereum, rollups, Cosmos Hub, and Osmosis. Developers can be eligible for multiple TIA allocations, (e.g. the sum of Research and public goods, Eth Research, and/or Early modular ecosystem).
The Genesis Drop claiming period will conclude on 17 October 2023, 12:00 UTC.
Any eligible TIA amounts presented at genesis-celestia or in this blog post are the minimum amount, based on a scenario in which 100% of eligible GitHub accounts or onchain addresses claim. At the conclusion of the Genesis Drop, a portion of unclaimed tokens, up to 45 million TIA, will be allocated to developers and accounts who have submitted addresses.
