Optimism is a low-cost, lightning-fast Ethereum-equivalent L2 blockchain. Working to scale Ethereum’s technology and values, OP Labs is on a mission to build the most secure, stable, and decentralized blockchain, and the Optimism Foundation is seeding and growing an ecosystem that drives global adoption of the Optimism protocol.
