Orbiter Finance, a bridge for Layer-2 assets, has confirmed a token and strongly hinted at a possible airdrop. Here are all the details you need to know and various tasks you can do to maximize your chances for this potential retroactive airdrop.
What Is Orbiter Finance?
Orbiter Finance is a decentralized cross-rollup bridge for Ethereum native assets. It allows you to transfer tokens like ETH, USDT and more from one blockchain to another. It supports 11 networks including Ethereum, zkSync Era, Arbitrum, Optimism, BNB chain, and more, allowing you to transfer funds between these blockchains.
Is The Airdrop Confirmed?
Orbiter Finance has not officially confirmed an airdrop but they have confirmed a token and hinted at a possible airdrop. On the FAQ in their Discord, Orbiter Finance confirmed there will be a token launching in the future as you can see in the image below:
How To Maximize Your Airdrop Odds
Step 1: Head Over To https://orbiter.finance
To use Orbiter Finance, you will need MetaMask (or any supported wallet) along with some ETH, USDT, DAI, or USDC. Your funds can be on the Ethereum Mainnet, Arbitrum, BNB Chain or any of the 11 supported networks. If you haven't added most of these networks to your MetaMask yet, you can do so using the Chainlist.org website.
Step 2: Start Bridging Funds
The best chance to receive an airdrop is to bridge funds like a real user using any of the 11 supported networks. You can send Ether from Ethereum Mainnet to Arbitrum or any combination. I prefer Arbitrum, BNB Chain, Optimism, and Polygon for low gas fees.
- Connect your wallet
- Select the chains you want to send assets from and send assets to
- Select the token you want to send (ETH/USDT/USDC/DAI)
- Check fees and time
- Complete the transaction
Ideally, you should complete as many transactions as possible to maximize your chances. However, there will be transaction fees which are always viewable before you click send.
Step 3: Perform The Tasks At https://guild.xyz/orbiter-finance
Lastly, you should visit the Orbiter Finance Guild and level up your Discord roles by completing the tasks. When you visit the site, you will first need to join Guild by connecting your wallet. Next, you'll see a URL to the Orbiter Finance discord where you have to go and verify yourself. Then you're ready to start completing tasks and climbing up the 7 levels:
- Member: Connect your wallet to the Guild page
- Flying Alien: Follow Orbiter Finance on Twitter and add a UFO emoji to your Twitter username
- Trainee Pilot: 3-9 transactions on Orbiter Finance
- Pilot: 10-49 transactions on Orbiter Finance
- Elite Pilot: 50-99 transactions on Orbiter Finance
- Expert Pilot: 100-499 transactions on Orbiter Finance
- Ace Pilot: 500 transactions or more on Orbiter Finance
If you don't want to use your real social media accounts, you can can set up a brand new Twitter and Discord that's dedicated for airdrops.
Step 4: Claim Your Orbiter NFTs
Once you've done at least 3 transactions using the Orbiter Finance bridge, you will be eligible to claim an NFT. The more transactions you have, the more NFTs you can claim. Having these in your wallet could be a criteria for the airdrop which is what we're looking for. To claim or see your eligibility, go to Galxe, connect your wallet, and click "Claim." They're hosted on the Polygon network so you will need a few cents worth of MATIC to pay for gas fees.
