If you need to get qualified for this airdrop, you have to do the following: block proposing, block proving, interact with Taiko test nets, take part in Galaxy campaigns, make GitHub contributions on eligible repositories, and also the Ethereum ICO participants who have conducted transactions between 2022/02/01, 00:00:00h and 2024/02/01, 00:00:00h. Also these transactions schools have been made on the main net. 

Note that, if you have participated in the ETH ICO and if you have been a Taiko proposer too, you will get more tokens. That is, being in more activities increases your allocations. 

Presently, it is one of the most anticipated events. The related events such as the TK Genesis airdrop will be available for the users to claim after the Layer 2 chain goes live. You will be able to find the first on the main net.
