Yes, XRP is now branching out after years of stagnation. I mean it's notable, but not really admirable given how late they are to the space. It's like Apple finally adding fingerprint scanner. The Flare network is separate, so it's not running on XRP. You have to wrap your XRP to gain those functions. SOLO and ELS are the two I know that run on XRPL. With all things considered, speaking objectively, this doesn't make XRP standout enough to be in the Top 10. XRP itself has no Smart Contracts and no large ecosystem.
I have to redact my statement of them being worthless (aside from VGB and ELS) but I keep getting this hundreds of thousands of this calorie coin airdropped. However I did get 5800xSTIK whatever that is. Currently worth about 70xrp. So that’s a 50 dollar airdrop. Not the worst.
Actually there have been quite a few that did quite well, if you timed it right. FLR, SGB, VGB, ELS, and 5-6 others who's names I don't even remember anymore. Couldn't care less about these airdrops aside from FLR/Spark. I just use the others to stack more XRP.
Glad to help! For most you just need a self custody XRP account (think it’s 10XRP now to activate an account) and then setting each ‘trustline’ for a token requires a 2 XRP reserve (you get it back if you close the trustline). So for 40 tokens you would need 90 XRP. Most you get just for having the trustline so doesn’t matter how much XRP you have. Then a few reward whales (the more you have the more you get) and some are determined by your holding up to a limit (e.g. VGB gave you one per XRP in your account, up to 1000). You need an XRP account you can fully control to set the trustline, like a XUMM wallet or a ledger and using XRP toolkit. Lots of problems with exchanges saying they will support airdrops and then holding the tokens for months. And don’t get tempted to set up lots of accounts to get the airdrop multiple times, as there are teams of people identifying and banning/ excluding airdrop farmers. A lot of focus on it now, as ELS team messed it up and airdropped over a million tokens to one person with dozens of accounts.
There have been a lot of airdrops of tokens on the XRP ledger recently. Most airdrops are worth less than 1 XRP, but a few worth a lot more (assuming you don’t immediately sell) - VGB 400+ XRP, ELS about 1000 XRP and Equilibrium Games about 4000 XRP. And the big one was Songbird (and at some point in the future Spark) which are both part of the flare network (not XRP ledger tokens). These are based on number of XRP held on the snapshot date back in December 2020. For some this means receiving tens of thousands of dollars worth. I found out about most of the decent ones from the XRP sub and a more exhaustive (and less discerning) list from XRP Airdrops on Twitter. For most you just need to set up a ‘trustline’ for the token on your XRP account before the deadline.

Sologenic snapshot is Dec 24th 1 to 5 for Solo and 0.2 to 1 Xrp you are holding. SOLO isnt the only airdrop. There have been over 100+ last few months. Elysian was $800-1500 with another Drop of Athena for ELS holders coming. Check my profile for airdrop list, schedule, and a link to Xumm on playstore easiest way to get trustlines. They arent exhaustive at all, the best place is Twitter search #Xrplairdrop #Xummcommunity
