Future Airdrop opportunities from L2 rollup Arbitrum, the SUI testnet, and zkSync are on the horizon for those who missed out on the Aptos ATP drop on Oct. 19, 2022.

On Oct. 20, 2022, the Aptos Foundation airdropped 20,076,150 APT tokens to 110,235 participants, netting some community members as much as $6,000.

The Aptos network is a layer-one blockchain focused on scalability and modularity. Two former Meta employees started the project. It uses a smart contract programming language called MOVE. Additionally, it improves transaction throughput through a process called pipelining. It is also designed to be modular, making frequent upgrades possible. 

Airdrops are often used to create buzz around a new crypto project. Users qualify to receive free crypto coins or tokens for doing specific tasks designed to bring greater awareness to a particular project. The company or project can leverage this awareness in future fundraising opportunities like initial coin offerings.

While Aptos only allowed community members meeting specific criteria to claim APT, other networks are rolling out future airdrop plans in the coming weeks and months that could prove even more lucrative. What follows is not an exhaustive list.

NFT airdrop opportunities, an NFT marketplace, and aggregator for pro traders started offering airdrops on Oct. 19, 2022. The airdrops consist of care packages for trading NFTs in the last six months. The care packages contain BLUR tokens, which won’t be visible until Jan. 2023, when launches its governance. A bigger future airdrop 2 will go to those who “actively list on blur,” while the first airdrop is to bring traffic to the site. You can still qualify for the first airdrop if you list an NFT on in the next 13 days. You can qualify for the second round in Nov. 2022.

Crypto Airdrop

L2 rollup airdrop opportunities

Rumors also suggest that Ethereum layer-two rollup Arbitrum could airdrop ARBI tokens soon. The tokens could arrive in Q4 2022 or early 2023. To become eligible, some suggest bridging to Arbitrum to get funds through. Also, the L2 solution announced Arbitrum Odyssey earlier this year to qualify you for certain Arbitrum NFTs, which could be part of the airdrop eligibility criteria. The Odyssey included a list of weekly tasks that, if completed, would entitle you to an NFT. Offchain Labs paused Odyssey to allow Arbitrum to undergo the Nitro upgrade. Since the Nitro upgrade occurred close to the Ethereum Merge, the Arbitrum team will likely reactivate Odyssey soon. 

Joining Arbitrum’s Discord could also qualify you for a future airdrop. 

Layer-one chain SUI will airdrop tokens to users of its testnet. Users can download the SUI wallet Google Chrome extension and fill it with SUI testnet tokens. The testnet tokens are available through SUI’s Discord server or from a SUI faucet on its NFT Marketplace

To increase the chances of getting ZKS tokens from zero-knowledge L2 rollup zkSync, you need to interact with the zkSync testnet, perform some bridging activities to zkSync, interact with various decentralized applications, an NFT platform, and wallet service. You can find more details in this Twitter thread.

Upcoming Future DeFi application airdrops

Don’t forget about DeFi protocols.

Rage Trade, a new derivatives protocol betting on ETH prices, recently launched on Arbitrum. The protocol has not released its RAGE token yet. By depositing tricrypto liquidity into the protocol and opening a leveraged position on an ETH perpetual contract, one could become eligible for an airdrop.

A new borrowing and lending protocol on Ethereum called Sturdy Finance has hinted at a future airdrop. To qualify, it may help to deposit some stablecoins as collateral and borrow against that.

Finally, the Starknet ecosystem may also play host to multiple airdrops soon. Starknet is a zero-knowledge rollup on Ethereum. An automated market maker called 10KSwap, currently live on StarkNet, has hinted at a possible airdrop. At the same time, a DeFi protocol called Alpha Road Finance will airdrop ASTR tokens. One can invest, stake, and claim rewards on Alpha Road Finance to qualify.
