Ethereum’s layer-2 solution, Arbitrum, conducted a significant airdrop to its community members and initial users in March. As part of the airdrop, 1.16 billion tokens, equivalent to 11.6% of Arbitrum’s total supply, were distributed as rewards to DAO members who manage the Arbitrum One and Nova networks.
Fate of the Unclaimed Tokens Revealed
At the end of the airdrop process, 69 million ARB tokens remained unclaimed. The Arbitrum Foundation announced that these unclaimed 69 million ARB tokens, valued at $57 million, have been transferred to the Arbitrum DAO treasury. The Foundation further clarified that the airdrop process has concluded, and users will no longer be able to claim these tokens from any source.

The Block reported, based on on-chain data, that the Arbitrum DAO treasury currently holds 3.6 billion ARB tokens, valued at $2.9 billion.
