After the appearance of the Optimism (OP) token on the exchanges, community members proposed new rules for conducting airdrops
Of all the users who participated in the distribution of Optimism (OP) tokens, only 49% applied for tokens in the first round. Therefore, a member of the 0xJohn community recommended that users who sold out the OPs received as part of the airdrop should not be eligible to participate in future token distributions.

0xJohn stated: “These users [те, кто продают] do not play a constructive role in the management of Optimism. Instead of contributing to management, they maximize profits.”
Since airrops are standard practice for token distribution and community building, several other users on the Optimism management forum agreed to this proposal. However, another user under the nickname Krispyshot does not consider such a decision to be correct.
While 0xJohn believes in rewarding those “who really contribute to management instead of making short-term profits,” Krispyshot argues that OP tokens should interact with exchanges to check how good they are.
OP tokens on the day of their launch
On the first day of the token launch, Optimism processed more than 490,000 transactions. The network also achieved record transaction processing per second of 12 TPS. On average, the network processed 10 transactions per second, according to Dune Analytics.
Also on June 1, Optimism officially announced that since the November update of the “EVM Equivalence” function, the number of transactions within the network has exceeded 10 million.
User Krispyshot considers such interaction of the token with centralized and decentralized exchanges as a good sign. He insists that “the OP token needs a large market capitalization” to attract investors and develop the project. The community member also stressed that the proposal put forward by 0xJohn “contradicts the decentralization that Optimism, as a community, seeks to promote.”
Manage and delegate authority over the network
Meanwhile, 0xJohn is critical of unproductive accounts. He stated, “After identifying accounts trying to break airdrop’s rules, the next progressive step is to identify zero-fee accounts that are not involved in the management and therefore should not have any weight in it.”
For context, just last week, the network removed 17,000 addresses trying to break airdrop rules.
However, when it comes to contributions to governance, the OP Delegation System notes that people who receive tokens when conducting airdrops should “delegate, along with the tokens, their voting rights to those members of the community who are widely known for their active role in managing the Token House project.”
However, Optimism has yet to announce a schedule for its subsequent token handsouts. However, Optimism states: “If you missed the first hand, don’t worry – we approach the OP handout the same way we approach the op distribution as we do the management: iteratively. There will be more airdrops in the future.”
