The Bankless Airdrop Guide | July 2023

As the saying goes, crypto pays you to learn crypto, and airdrops are one of the best ways to earn and explore!

The Bankless Airdrop Guide is your home for alpha on web3 projects that you should be interacting with to maximize your chances of airdrops. No strategy is guaranteed, but the right tip may grant you a seat at the governance table of some of crypto’s hottest protocols, not to mention potentially juicy financial returns 📈

This month's guide showcases seven protocols. The first opportunity is available to everyone, the rest are available exclusively to our Bankless Citizens 🏴

⚪ Linea️

Name: Linea
Status: Unconfirmed 🚫
Confidence: High
Sector: L2
Chains: ETH

Linea is the next generation of the ConsenSys zkEVM, aiming to serve the next generation of dApps built on Ethereum while empowering devs with low fees and a scalable blockchain.

The L2 was designed to be as developer-friendly as possible, coming with out-of-the-box support for popular tools, like MetaMask and Truffle. Linea's unique prover design ensures faster transaction speeds and reduced gas costs, without sacrificing security.

On Tuesday, Linea announced that it will begin onboarding users to its Ethereum mainnet deployment during ETHCC next week!

Why we're watching:
Linea kicked off the start of its 9-week Voyage campaign, similar to Arbitrum's Odyssey, back in May 2023. Users accumulated points for completing Galxe quests, and top testers earned the rights to mint a one-of-a-kind NFT at the culmination of the Voyage!

Early-stage project NFTs are often used as a basis to identify a protocol's most dedicated users. Linea's usage of NFTs as rewards to top Voyage participants signals that it will likely conduct a future airdrop. It is likely NFT holders will qualify for an outsized allocation, but we also suspect that early users of this L2 will also have the opportunity to scoop a free LINEA bag.

Maximize your eligibility by:
Following Linea's Twitter to learn how to get access to mainnet
Getting onto Linea's testnet (works natively with MetaMask!)
Bridging funds to Linea's testnet (use Hop Exchange!)
Funding your wallet with a recommended faucet
