Do the Taiko Quest with Galxe
At the time of writing, Taiko is on testnet version 3 and they have just introduced a new Taiko Quest in partnership with Galxe.
You can refer to their tweet here.
First of all, do note that testnets typically do not reward airdrops to users with very few exceptions like Aptos.
This means you may put in all the effort and get nothing in return other than just experience.
Once you’re ready to start, head to the Galxe link provided in the tweet.
You will see a list of things you need to do. To begin, you have to do it in the order provided.
This means you need to become a Taiko discord member first, followed by Twitter and so on. You can’t claim in the middle as they follow the order.
Just follow all of the steps until the last one. The Trust Bonus gives the most points and you need to have the required Gitcoin score / Galxe passport depending on which one you’re comfortable with having.
The quiz answer for Taiko alpha-3 testnet questions is C, C, B.
The quiz answer for Type 1, 2, 3 and 4 ZK-EVMS is B, C, C, B, B.
