The Optimism token has just started working, but has already lost almost half of its value. The community decided to fight it.
For tokens, a typical situation is when after an airdrop – distribution to users – they lose in price. After all, having received coins for free, new holders are in a hurry to sell them on the market at a reduced price. The fate has not passed the newcomer who attracts the attention of traders – cryptocurrency Optimism (OP). No, the start was not bad, and on June 1, quotes jumped from the starting $ 1.43 to $ 2.10. However, only a day passed, and op lost 43% of its peak value.
The Optimism Team is a Level 2 solution provider for Ethereum – wanted to reward the first users, DAO voters, Github contributors and other members of the community, but it turned out that not all of them are as loyal as seen in the startup. This was supposed to be the first giveaway to a wider audience, but that could change.
June 1 community member under the nickname 0xJohn submitted a proposal with the appropriate title – “Users who sold the original airdrop OP should be deprived of the right to participate in all future airdrops”.
John notes that he sees nothing wrong with maximizing profits by traders, but explains that for the purposes of the protocol, such actions are counterproductive. 0xJohn named several addresses, the owners of which sold all the coins received. One of them managed to exchange 32,421 OP for almost $ 46,000. The user calls such actions purely self-serving and absolutely unprofitable for Optimism. He proposes to prohibit such participants from participating in future distributions and to put the list of addresses caught in the dump on public display. Most members of the community supported the idea.
