Soon after Ethereum Layer 2 network scaling solution Optimism (OP) went live on exchanges, community members proposed new rules for future airdrops.
With approximately 49% of $OP users claiming airdrops in the first round, community member 0xJohn recommended that “users who sold initial OP airdrops should be ineligible for all future airdrops.”
0x John argued, “These accounts [sellers] Optimists are not playing a constructive role in governance. Instead of contributing to governance, they are maximizing for profit. ,
Since it is standard practice to distribute and create a community for airdrop tokens, many other users on the Optimism Governance platform agree with the proposal. However, another user named Khrispyshots contested the claims with another proposal.
While 0xJohn believes in rewarding those who ‘genuinely contribute to the regime on short-term profits’, Khrispyshots said that ‘the $OP token needs to negotiate to test its strength’.
$OP interaction on day one
On the first day of the birth of optimism, it processed more than 490,000 transactions. The network also peaked at an hourly rate of 12 TPS, which according to data from Dune Analytics averages around 10 TPS.
On June 1, Optimism also officially announced that it had crossed ten million transactions. EVM Equivalence upgrade in november
And Khrispyshots’ proposal sees these interactions with centralized and decentralized exchanges as a good sign. The user emphasized that “$OP Token needs a huge market capitalization” to attract investors and grow the project. The member also noted that 0xJohn’s proposal “counteracts the decentralization that it fosters optimism as a community.”
Network governance and delegation
Meanwhile, 0xJohn also has a firm stance on how unproductive accounts should be dealt with. “After identifying the CIBIL accounts, the next progressive step is to identify zero contribution accounts which are not linked to governance, and hence should not be eligible for any governance encumbrances,” he added.
For context, the network removed 17,000 CIBIL accounts just last week.
But, when it comes to governance contributions, the OP delegation system notes anyway that the people claiming the OP in the airdrop ‘should delegate the voting power of their tokens to a community member who has clearly contributed to token house governance’. Have volunteered to take an active role.
That said, Optimism has yet to announce the schedule of its second and subsequent airdrops. In the meantime, it said, “If you missed drop #1, don’t worry — we’re approaching the OP’s distribution in the same way we’re ruling: iteration.
