The total amount of these tokens to be unlocked is approximately $420 million.

Optimism (OP): A Layer 2 Solution for Ethereum

Optimism is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum, aiming to address the scalability issues of the Ethereum network. Its unlocking will have a significant impact on the market.

Optimism once ignited a token airdrop craze when it issued tokens in April last year. Coinbase also announced the launch of the Layer 2 blockchain network “Base” based on OP’s open source code (Optimism Stack) earlier this year.

The total initial supply of OP tokens is 4,294,967,296, growing at a token inflation rate of 2% per year. May 31 will usher in unlocking, with a total of 154,618,822.65 OP unlocked, with a total value of about 255 million U.S. dollars, accounting for about 3.6% of the total supply. In addition, this unlocking mainly comes from core contributors and early investors with 1.9% and 1.7% respectively.
