Optimism (OP) is a layer-two blockchain on Ethereum, leveraging the security of the Ethereum mainnet for secure transactions. With over $500 million in TVL, it supports 97 protocols, including Synthetix, Uniswap, and Velodrome.

OP is the token for the Optimism Collective, governing the Optimism L2 blockchain. Steered by the Optimism Foundation, it governs protocol upgrades and incentives for projects.
