What does Arbitrum airdrop mean?

On March 16, Arbitrum officially announced that it will airdrop the governance token ARB to its community members on March 23. At the same time, it announced the details of the highly anticipated airdrop. The query link has been announced.

  • From then on, Arbitrum has officially transitioned to a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).

  • ARB holders, who will, by voting, govern Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova.

Why is the Arbitrum airdrop so much-anticipated?

1. Arbitrum has a pivotal position in the encryption ecosystem:
  • Aribtrum One's network locked-up volume is 3.69 billion US dollars, and Layer 2 market share is close to 55%, ranking first.

2. The demand for Arbitrum tokens (ARB) is far greater than the supply:
  • The initial total supply is only 10 billion, with a maximum inflation of 2% per year.

3. The proportion of " retail investors" holding ARB tokens is too small:
  • In terms of airdrops, only 11.62% of the initial supply will be airdropped to Arbitrum users.

Percentage of initial supply

1.753 billion
Offchain Labs Investors

Users of the Arbitrum platform (via airdrops to users wallets addresses)
DAOs building apps on Arbitrum (via airdrops to DAO Treasury addresses)

Therefore, many users think that obtaining ARB tokens is the same as obtaining Tesla and Apple stocks. Users who have long been concerned about and invested in the encryption ecosystem even regard this airdrop as an opportunity to "
get rich overnight ".
