Optimism (OP) History and Overview

Optimism (OP) History and Overview

Optimism is a layer-two blockchain that operates on top of Ethereum. It leverages the security of the Ethereum mainnet and helps scale the Ethereum ecosystem through the use of optimistic rollups. This means that transactions are recorded trustlessly on Optimism, but ultimately secured on Ethereum. With over $500 million in total value locked, Optimism is one of the leading scaling solutions for Ethereum, hosting 97 protocols, including Synthetix (SNX), Uniswap (UNI) and Velodrome (VELO). Users can access Optimism by adding the chain to their Metamask wallet and bridging tokens like ETH to layer-two.

Optimism is built around four core principles: simplicity, pragmatism, sustainability and optimism. It aims to minimize the number of components while providing a layer-two solution for Ethereum. This approach involves using existing Ethereum code and infrastructure whenever possible and keeping the code as simple as possible.

The ecosystem is driven by the real-world needs and constraints of the team and users, with a focus on building iteratively and gradually implementing features such as EVM equivalence. The design process prioritizes long-term sustainability and avoids shortcuts to scalability. Optimism uses optimistic rollups and takes advantage of the Ethereum consensus mechanism to scale the network. Transactions are executed on layer-two, while batches of transactions are submitted to layer-one. The layer-two does not have a mempool, and transactions are immediately accepted or rejected, providing a smooth user experience while maintaining security.

Transactions are submitted to Ethereum without direct proof of validity and can be challenged for a period of seven days. After that, a transaction is considered final, which is why withdrawals from Optimism to Ethereum take seven days to complete.

We initiated a short term trade and swapped some $ETH for $OP. $OP has made a perfect inverse head and should pattern and seems ready to pop. Whenever it pops, we will take those profits back to $ETH or whatever we consider cheap from our core holdings.

Added one more asset to our strategy: #Optimism $OP. 4% added of this L2 project.

OP Mainnet is a low-cost and lightning-fast #Ethereum L2 blockchain powered by Optimism.

#Coinbase is focused on OP via their project Base.

Nicely diversified across #DeFi #Web3 and #L2 now.

We have decided to remove $ARB due to a huge unlock coming up in March and also due to the fact it's been underperforming lately. We're increasing $OP slightly to offset the reduction in Arbitrum.

We are also increasing other assets, primarily buying up $INJ. It is looking very bullish from a technical standpoint and also we believe it is one of the gems of this bull run. We have bought into it around $6 and will most likely continue holding a large chunk of the portfolio in it for the majority of the bull market unless something unexpected happens.

ETFs continue with positive inflows, that's why $BTC does not stop printing green candles. Halving is basically around the corner at this point and it seems that supply shock is coming when taking into the account these two things.

Sooner or later the gains from Bitcoin will start flowing into alts, we believe we have not entered the true altcoin season at all yet, that is when we will see most gains. So far we have only had a few altcoins that have overperformed, but the altcoin market as a whole is still very far off the all time highs.

We are attaching a screenshot of Injective's chart, since we can only add one photo we will share TOTAL3 graph (marketcap of all coins excluding $BTC and $ETH).
