Here’s what you need to know about the assets:
Optimism (OP) is a Layer 2 scaling solution implemented on the Ethereum network. It employs a technology known as optimistic rollups to aggregate multiple transactions, thereby alleviating congestion and lowering transaction fees on the Ethereum mainnet. OP is Optimism’s native governance token, which allows OP token holders to participate in decisions regarding the protocol’s future direction, upgrades and parameters.
Synthetic (SNX) offers an alternative way to invest in fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies and commodities through crypto derivatives. Synthetix is a decentralized protocol built on Ethereum that allows users to gain exposure to assets without actually holding or taking custody of the underlying resource. These synthetic assets (Synths) are backed by the platform’s cryptocurrency, Synthetix Network Token (SNX), which can be staked as collateral in order to generate rewards.
Injective (INJ) is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that offers various features such as cross-chain margin trading, derivatives and forex futures trading. Built on the Cosmos blockchain a Layer 2 application, Injective uses bridges to offer cross-chain capabilities for traders to trade across other networks. The exchange is operated by the INJ token, Injective’s native cryptocurrency, which is used by makers and takers to pay for transaction fees on its network.
Celestia (TIA) is a modular blockchain network focusing on scalable data availability for blockchains. By separating transaction ordering from network consensus, Celestia helps to address the data availability challenges many blockchains face while scaling. TIA is the native token used for data transactions, network security via proof-of-stake, and enabling decentralized governance within the ecosystem.
