Data Shows Arbitrum Arbitrarily Transferred ARB to Coinbase Exchange

Arbitrum, one of Ethereum’s leading layer 2 scaling solutions, responded to recent discussions focusing on its token distribution and governance process.

In a tweet, the Arbitrum team confirmed that 40 million ARB has been provided to market makers as loans, while the remaining 10 million ARB will be converted to fiat and cover operating costs.

The team also highlighted that the platform holds a relatively small 7.5% token share compared to other similar projects such as Polygon, Starknet, Solana, Optimism, and Avalanche.

The Arbitrum team also provided lengthy responses to questions about the AIP-1 approval process. They explained that with the launch of a DAO, there is often a “chicken-and-egg” problem where certain decisions have to be made before a wider launch. The goal of AIP-1 is to involve the community in initial and final decision-making, allowing holders to show support by DAO voting to approve decisions and frameworks.

To clarify two key points, the team emphasized that they will not be selling 50 million ARBs, and detailed the reasoning behind the initial allocation of 750 million ARBs in their forum post. However, prior to the adoption of AIP-1, it was found that 750 million tokens were allocated to admin budget wallets. This is in stark contrast to the decentralized nature of DAOs.

In the latest move, the DAO used more than 50.5 million ARB. According to evidence provided by @jconorgrogan, former manager of the Coinbase exchange, the Arbitrum Foundation sent tens of millions of ARB tokens two weeks ago.
