I was looking at a tally of how many different cryptos were mentioned on social media. Optimism didn’t even make the list. I think “OP” is underreported and possibly mistaken by bots for standing for “Original Poster.” I think OP is also overlooked for having only two characters instead of three or more (ETH, BTC, MATIC). Any thoughts on this?
I think we need to work harder, contribute and grow the ecosystem and Optimism, so that ‘OP’ for everyone means Optimism, and associates with Optimism.
Agree on under-reported in comparison to other chain but this might also happen because they have huge hype of native token “airdrop”.
We are doing relatively well from protocol side with on-going $OP incentives and I only expect to grow even more with OP Citizen house launch,
out of curiosity @Ovetta, could you share this list you’ve made?
my suspicion is that much of what it has to do concerns the sorts of projects (both apps and layers) that typically get a lot of social media play – there might not be a large overlap with our defi-heavy, governance-focused ecosystem
in any case i’m not sure that solving for social media exposure of the OP token is a primary concern at this stage, though it’s certainly worth tracking
The list is embedded into Reddit’s “Cryptocurrency” subreddit. Here’s a link to it.
ah, thank you!
fwiw OP’s on there, between AAVE and BAT
