According to his review, to meet the eligibility criteria, cryptocurrency enthusiasts should at least take part in the Arbitrum Odyssey campaign, perform mainnet transactions on Arbitrum, achieve specific roles on the project's Discord and "participate in the network's progress."
The fourth criterion is the most complicated: given the example of Optimism (OP), this task might include multiple transactions, DAO voting, working with multisig tools, Gitcoin donations and so on.
As per the estimation of the blogger, completing all tasks might only cost $10 in Ether for one wallet.

First of all, the global crypto community keeps its eyes focused on Arbitrum's airdrop due to splendid success of the token distribution by Arbitrum's core competitor Optimism (OP).
Also, Arbitrum is a key element of the global Ethereum (ETH) L2 ecosystem: as of early October 2022, it is responsible for over 50% of all TVL in Layer 2 protocols.
