Starknet is a Layer 2 scaling solution designed to scale the Ethereum network, with the ZK-STARK cryptographic mechanism at its core.
Considered one of the most promising L2 solutions, Starknet holds significant potential to dominate Ethereum's rollup landscape. Its technology, leveraging STARK proofs, has demonstrated prowess by facilitating nearly $1.13 trillion in cumulative trades, processing over 570 million transactions, and minting 123 million NFTs via the StarkEx solution.
In a recent announcement, the Starknet Foundation, the organization behind Starknet, confirmed the completion of the snapshot for the upcoming STRK token airdrop. They emphasized that the token distribution criteria are fixed and impervious to current actions. According to the team, detailed information on token allocation will be disclosed in a finalized update at a later stage.
Although the Starknet Foundation emphasized that since the 1st December, 2023 any action wouldn't impact retrodrop eligibility, here's a compilation of actions that may be taken into account for eligibility criteria:
1. Utilize Starknet bridge – StarGate
Transferring tokens between Ethereum and Starknet via StarGate is one of the few key actions that you can take to increase your chances of being eligible for the STRK token airdrop. StarGate is the official bridge built and developed by the Starknet team.
2. Trade on Starknet DEXs
3. Engage with Starknet NFT projects
Starknet boasts a variety of captivating NFT projects worth interacting with:
4. Use ArgentX
An additional eligibility factor to increase one’s potential earnings in the Starknet airdrop could involve using ArgentX, a native StarkNet wallet. Similar to any other wallet, the process entails downloading, installing the wallet, transferring tokens, and engaging in transactions to bolster eligibility.
5. Interact with Starknet-based dApps
Early adopters who actively engaged with Starknet dApps are likely to be eligible for the airdrop, as well. Interaction with Starknet-based dApps, such as dYdX, Immutable X, Celer, and DeversiFi strengthens one’s potential inclusion in the airdrop.
