MetaMask warns users about fake airdrop claims

The operator of the web3 wallet known as MetaMask has warned its customers about “false rumors” about a non-existent airdrop, which seems to have been circulating on social media.

MetaMask has issued the warning on its Twitter. They mentioned “quite a few false rumors” about a MetaMask snapshot or airdrop taking place on March 31, as more controversies surround the recent airdrops.

In a message on Twitter, the MetaMask team has dispelled speculations that a forthcoming airdrop will occur. It has encouraged users to look for phony sites in the days ahead.

There is a possibility that the new reports are connected to a “fireside chat” session that took place on March 14 at ETHDenver 2023 with ConsenSys CEO and Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin.

During this session, Joe Lubin emphasized that his company is “currently trying to decentralize” MetaMask and mentioned the group had plans to distribute a token.

As a result of the rumors, there was a dramatic increase in the activity on MetaMask. After recent airdrops from the Ethereum Name Service and Lubin’s token announcement, MetaMask witnessed a similar surge of interest due to reports of an airdrop back in November 2021. Lubin’s mention of a token followed this.
