But don’t panic just yet! The good folks over at Arbitrum are on top of it, and they’ve issued a statement warning the community to stay vigilant and keep their eyes peeled for any dodgy activity. They even reminded us to double-check everything and never give away our personal info to strangers. That’s just basic internet safety, folks!
Now, even if you manage to avoid all the scams, getting your hands on those Arb airdrops is no walk in the park. The system for determining who gets what is about as complicated as trying to explain quantum physics to a toddler. So, strap on your thinking caps and get ready to navigate some serious complexity.
But most importantly, stay safe out there, folks! Don’t let those scammers get the best of you and your crypto. And if all else fails, just remember that HODLing is always a viable strategy.
