It seems that is has become a frenzy and unfortunately a scam battlefield as well.
It is quite easy and fast to request your airdrop that is provided by byteball. You'll find many articles of people that will "help" and that will HELP! you. In general it takes 5-10 min time if you follow the steps of people who know what they are doing.
The effort is worth it!

NEVER share your recieve address in a comment or on a chat where someone else than the one who is helping you can read it.
Download the wallet only, either from the link the person helping you is providing or the official link in the announcement post of byteball. If you do the latter, make sure it is a SINGLE ADDRESS WALLET. (click settings and put the button of the "Single address wallet" to GREEN)
Let you help by someone you trust. It is a lot of money involved and a lot of money means that some people will do anything to take it from you.
- There are recieve-address snipers around, sending you the needed funds while taking away the ref-reward from those who really want to help you.
- If you download from a wrong link, and forget to switch to single address wallet, you will NOT get the airdrop. I heard stories that both, the ref-link provider and the fund provider recieved the airdrop but NOT the one newly registering! Too many cooks spoil the broth!
- If you trust the wrong person, they will send you the 2 Cents needed to activate the wallet and verify your steemit account, but they will not help you. I had to help several people, who were left alone while already having the funds but no idea how to proceed. It sometimes ended with them getting nothing (downloaded/activated multi wallet )or me getting nothing (as the fee already was payed).
There are some trustworthy people around, able and willing to help.
If you trust me, I am also willing to help, just contact me on discord (Pollux#3889) or on steem.chat
