The trading for the ARM cryptocurrency shall begin from the same moment.
ARM Airdrop and Market Scams
Arbitrum, the Layer-2 scaling project for the Ethereum blockchain has its native cryptocurrency ARB, launched with an initial supply cap of 10 billion. A majority of the Arbitrum tokens i.e. over 56% are community owned. From this community allocation, 12.75% of the ARB supply shall be available for Arbitrum airdrop ahead of this week on March 23. As per Lookonchain, an estimated 1.162 billion Arbitrum tokens (ARB) will be available for airdrop ahead on Thursday.
The Arbitrum Foundation and the DAO hold the responsibility for distributing the rest of the community tokens over time. Furthermore, the data analytics platform Nansen stated that 625,143 addresses are eligible which is 28% of those bridged to Arbitrum One before Feb 6, 2023.
However, the Arbitrum community has also asked users to beware of the fake airdrops pretending to be from the project’s newly launched DAO. Since Arbitrum’s official announcement, scammers have started creating fake airdrops and phishing websites for the ARB tokens.
In one of their Twitter posts last week, Arbitrum News DAO said that they have identified more than 273 phishing sites related to Arbitrum. It also warned that the number could increase as the official date of the airdrop comes near.
