Arbitrum Airdrop: How to Claim ARB Tokens

Arbitrum, one of the best layer 2 scaling solutions for Ethereum, is finally releasing its governance token, ARB, and switching to a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). The airdrop will take place on March 23 and will distribute 12.75% of the total supply of ARB tokens to eligible community members and DAOs.

What is Arbitrum?

Arbitrum is a layer 2 solution that aims to improve the performance and scalability of Ethereum smart contracts while keeping their security and compatibility. Arbitrum uses a technique called optimistic rollup, which allows transactions to be executed off-chain and only submitted to the main chain when there is a dispute or challenge. This cuts down on gas fees and traffic on Ethereum while making interactions with decentralized applications (dApps) faster and cheaper.

Arbitrum has two main networks: Arbitrum One, which supports general-purpose smart contracts and dApps, and Arbitrum Nova, which focuses on non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and gaming. Both networks work with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and can handle Ethereum transactions and contracts without any changes.

Why is Arbitrum launching a token?

Arbitrum has decided to start its own governance token, called ARB, to make its network less centralized and give its community more power. ARB holders will be able to vote on key decisions affecting the development and operation of Arbitrum, such as protocol upgrades, fee structures, validator incentives, bridge policies, ecosystem grants, etc.

ARB will also serve as a utility token that can be used for paying gas fees on Arbitrum networks, staking for securing the network, participating in liquidity mining programs, accessing premium features or services on dApps built on Arbitrum, etc.
