zkSync ($ZKS) Airdrop: TBC
zkSync is a ZK Rollup that aims to provide scaleable and low-cost transactions on the Ethereum blockchain. This is by submitting validity proof to an Ethereum smart contract along with transactions that are bundled.
The Full Launch Alpha of zkSync 2.0 is estimated to be in Q2 2023. The team have said they will launch a native token in the future, leading to hopes that some of the tokens will be airdropped then. There is speculation that to be eligible for the zkSync Airdrop, users should: (1) set up and fund their zkSync wallet; (2) interact with zkSync Lite; and/or (3) use zkSync-based dApps such as Orbiter Finance or ZigZag. The last option is also particularly worthwhile to do because other zkSync dApps may not have launched their token yet. So you may get a chance to earn double airdrops!
Sui Blockchain: Further airdrops TBC https://boxmining.com/zigzag-exchange-zz-token-airdrop/
Sui Blockchain is a decentralized, proof-of-stake blockchain with horizontally scaleable throughput and storage. They are a platform that allows creators and developers to build on-chain assets. Sui has previously completed a successful airdrop to its Testnet Wave 1 and 2 validators. Validators received 2,000 SUI subject to a 1-year vesting period.
Hopefully, Sui will announce a third Testnet Wave or another airdrop campaign soon.

StarkNet ($STRK) Token Airdrop: Potential second round?
StarkNet is a decentralized Validity-Rollup (or “ZK-Rollup”) that works on top of Ethereum, providing unlimited computational capacity to decentralized applications without sacrificing security or compatibility. It utilizes STARK, a secure and scalable cryptographic proof system, to ensure that transactions are secure and reliable. StarkNet is permission-free, meaning anyone can use it without needing to be approved by a third party. StarkNet’s alpha v0.11.0 has just gone live on Testnet, and the mainnet upgrade is expected to follow soon after.
The best way to receive a potential StarkNet $STRK token airdrop is to interact with their testnet. Also, there are a few protocols on StarkNet that do not have a token yet. So using their DApps could put you in a position to receive their airdrops as well, allowing you to earn double rewards!

MetaMask ($MASK) airdrop: TBC
MetaMask is a popular browser extension that allows users to store their Ethereum (ETH)/ ERC-20 tokens as well as interact with other decentralized exchanges.
