Optimism buyers become more aggressive

On 5th March, Optimism buyers demonstrated heightened activity, as indicated by data from Coinglass. An examination of the OP funding rate showed a significant spike, reaching its highest level in over seven months at around 0.18%.

However, the funding rate has receded at the time of this writing. This suggests reduced buyer aggression, with the rate now around 0.02%.
