Celestia is a modular blockchain network whose goal is to build a scalable data availability layer, enabling the next generation of scalable blockchain architectures - modular blockchains. Celestia scales by decoupling execution from consensus and introducing a new primitive, data availability sampling.

Celestia has airdropped a total of 60 million TIA to various ecosystem users and developers. Users of the top 10 Ethereum rollups like Arbitrum and Optimism, Cosmos Hub and Osmosis stakers and various public GitHub contributors were eligible to claim free TIA tokens.

Stakers of TIA could get eligible for more future airdrops as we’ve seen with the AltLayer and Dymension airdrop.

Step-by-Step Guide:

Potential future airdrops to TIA stakers

TIA holders and stakers could be in for more airdrops, as we’ve seen with the AltLayer and Dymension. Manta Network has also hinted at doing an airdrop to TIA stakers. A lot of projects could be following suit, so it would be a good idea to buy some TIA and stake it.
