It appears that the project has dropped some of the geographical restrictions for the claim, although VPNs remain blocked.

EigenLayer is DeFi’s third-largest protocol, with $14.4 billion in total value locked (TVL), according to DeFiLlama. It enables users to re-stake their Ether or liquid staking tokens (LSTs) to earn additional yield by securing third-party applications called Actively Validated Services (AVS).

Once claimed, users can stake and delegate their tokens to a node operator for EigenDA, a data availability protocol that is the first AVS built atop EigenLayer. The project has previously stated that it aims to make EIGEN transferable by Sept. 30.
