Back in June, the OP Labs’ engineering blog shared a guest post from the team at Test in Prod.
Beyond their excellent work on op-erigon, the blog post made something exceptionally clear: the TiP team is fully bought in on the vision and mission of the Optimism Collective.
We’re excited to announce that Test in Prod is the third core development team to join the Optimism Collective. The team is committed to furthering development of the OP Stack alongside OP Labs and Base, the Collective’s other core development teams.
As part of this commitment, we’re sharing the details of a token grant made to Test in Prod to ensure their alignment and success:
- Test in Prod will receive 5m OP tokens over four years.
- 30% of the tokens will vest after one year (on August 31, 2024).
- 30% of the tokens will vest in monthly installments over the course of the second year.
- 20% of the tokens will vest in monthly installments over each of the third and fourth years.
We are grateful for Test in Prod’s contributions so far – many of which were made before the introduction of this token grant – and excited for the impact Test in Prod will have on the Collective for years to come.
Continuing decentralization is a key goal of the Collective, and comes in many forms. Growing the set of core technical contributors to the OP Stack is an important way to reduce the Collective’s reliance on any one team or group. Stay tuned for more information about Optimism’s growing core development program in the months to come.
