Taiko Alpha-3 Testnet ($TKO) Airdrop
Taiko ZK-EVM Alpha-3 testnet, called "Grímsvötn", is now live! Following the previous Taiko Alpha-1 & Taiko Alpha-2 Testnets, the Alpha-3 is a crucial step towards scaling Ethereum, playing a vital role in testing network design/components as the Mainnet launch approaches.
Alpha-3 Testnet incentivizes both proposers and provers to test the new protocol economics design. It aims to observe how permissionless participants act rationally in a mainnet-simulated environment, according to the protocol's fees and rewards.
Taiko is a fully decentralized, Ethereum-equivalent ZK-Rollup that scales Ethereum in a manner that emulates Ethereum as closely as possible - both technically and non-technically - by supporting all ZK-EVM opcodes in a layer-2 architecture that is decentralized, permissionless, and secure.

Step-by-Step Guide ''Taiko Grímsvötn Alpha-3 Testnet''
The testing primarily focuses on the interaction between proposers, provers, and the protocol driven by economic incentives. Additionally, it involves deploying Taiko on top of Taiko as an L3, leveraging the reusable design of the type-1 architecture known as "inception layers".
- Configure your Metamask wallet with both the Ethereum Sepolia Testnet and Taiko Alpha-3 Testnet networks.
- Go to the Sepolia Goerli Faucet and request $ETH test coins.
- Switch your wallet to Taiko Alpha-3 Testnet and Add custom tokens (HORSE, BLL, and TTKO) using the provided configuration.
- Navigate to the Taiko bridge interface, switch your wallet to Sepolia Goerli, select "HORSE" from the dropdown and click "Faucet". Repeat the same step for "BLL" tokens.
* Note that $TTKO will not be distributed at the launch of Alpha-3, but will be shortly after.
- Now, Bridge ETH, HORSE, and/or BLL from Sepolia to Taiko. You can also try manually claiming the transfer yourself by clicking the "Claim" button under the "Transactions" tab.
* Note that the Txs will intentionally fail 50% of the time as part of the testing process.
- Run a Taiko node, enable a Prover/Proposer, deploy a contract and verify its functionality, and build a ÐApp on top of Taiko.
- Report any bugs you encounter during testing and provide feedback.
▪️ Proposers must pay the protocol in a protocol token called TTKO when proposing a block, along with Ethereum L1 gas fees. In Alpha-3, they refer to this token as "test TKO." To distribute TTKO to potential proposers, the network looks back at those who contributed to the network on Alpha-1 and Alpha-2 Testnets. Refer to the "Grímsvötn" mirror blog for more information.

* If you have any questions or need assistance, you can ask on the Taiko Discord server. Exercise caution on Discord and rely only on official sources to avoid SCAMMERS!!!
