Today, the second largest EVM-compatible L2 chain Optimism announced their first token airdrop. 🤯
👉 Here’s the eligibility criteria for airdrop #1.
At present, Optimism is a vibrant ecosystem with close to $700m in total locked value and 108 dapps deployed.
Optimism is like having your cake and eating it too: cheap, quick transactions while maintaining the primary security guarantees of the base Ethereum chain.
It’s the best of both worlds. Ethereum is scaling through rollups.
With news of its token launch, activity on Optimism is set to explode.
If you’re never heard of Optimism, it’s not too late. In fact, as we learned from the Optimism team in today’s episode there will be many future Optimism airdrops to come!
