ZkSync denies NFT ‘insider minting,’ claims some minters attended events

Matter Labs stated that its employees were not eligible for the ZK airdrop and did not hand out NFTs to friends or other insiders.

Matter Labs, developer of Ethereum layer 2 network zkSync, denied claims of “insider minting” on June 26, claiming that all minters of the Libertas Omnibus non-fungible tokens (NFTs) were eligible to do so according to official criteria.
