A list of names, addresses, traders, users or programs granted access to a particular platform, event or program.
A whitelist in cryptocurrency typically refers to a public or private list of addresses that qualify to participate in a token sale, coin airdrop or other event. Selection into a whitelist usually rests on meeting certain qualifying conditions.
Most whitelists are generated through registration, at random, or by performing specific actions. Every whitelist is limited to a maximum limit which depends on the rules of the platform or the specific event. Whitelisting any individual, wallet address or program indicates safety and acceptance.
