Arbitrum Price Expectations After Airdrop
A popular cryptocurrency analyst shared his insights on how the Arbitrum (ARB) airdrop will affect the token's price.
Miles Deutscher shared with his more than 300,000 followers on Twitter that he expects ARB to experience something similar to BLUR, APT, and OP.
What is Arbitrum?
Developed by Offchain Labs, Arbitrum is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum that utilizes rollup technology to enhance the scalability and user-friendliness of the Ethereum blockchain.
Its objective is to handle numerous transactions off-chain while retaining the same degree of security and decentralization as the primary Ethereum network.
Arbitrum airdrop and exchange listings
Nearly 13% of the token supply will be airdropped to users tomorrow, with the eligible recipients being selected through a special points system that considers various metrics.
Miles Deutscher shared a tweet in which he compares the history of popular airdrops (BLUR, APT, and OP) and how they affected the token’s price. According to the analyst, there are three stages of a similar pattern to observe:
- Pump upon launch
- Sell off as airdrop recipients sell
- Explosive recovery once selling is exhausted
He added that the ARB airdrop might not follow the same trend as previous airdrops, but observing the similarities between previous patterns is still interesting.
New data from DeFillama indicates that the decentralized exchange (DEX) transaction volume on Arbitrum has reached unprecedented levels. In the past two weeks, DEX transactions have risen by 32.41%, amounting to $4.34 billion, with a peak of $3.28 billion in the week commencing March 5.
