Arbitrum is a Layer 2 solution for the Ethereum network, designed to improve the capabilities of smart contracts - increasing speed and scalability, as well as adding additional privacy features. The platform is intended to allow developers to easily launch

unchanged Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) contracts and Ethereum transactions on the second layer while continuing to benefit from the superior security of the Ethereum first layer.

Arbitrum has finally confirmed the launch of its own token called "ARB" and will be distributing free tokens to early users based on certain criteria. A total of 1.162 billion ARB tokens have been allocated for the airdrop.

Step-by-step guide to participate in the airdrop:

  1. Visit the Arbitrum airdrop page.
  2. Connect your wallet.
  3. Now click on "Check Eligibility."
  4. If you are eligible, then click on "Start claiming."
