  • Optimism’s OP stack gained popularity amidst gaming developers in Web3.
  • The overall price of OP declined while its velocity continued to rise.

In a year marked by uncertainty in the crypto market, Optimism [OP] emerged as a leading Layer 2 (L2) solution, showcasing resilience and gaining significant traction.

As interest in the crypto market experiences a resurgence, Optimism finds itself in a favorable position for further growth.

The rise of OP Stack

Optimism’s OP Stack, a standardized and open-source development stack, has witnessed surging popularity.

Notably, the OP Stack framework has become the preferred choice for full-chain game developers, facilitating the seamless creation of production-ready Layer 2 blockchains akin to OP Mainnet.

Growth prospects in gaming

The gaming sector, particularly within the Web3 space, is poised for expansion. Despite the market cap of 183 gaming projects fluctuating between $4 billion and $7 billion throughout the year, the sector remains enticing for developers.

The influx of 76 new gaming-focused networks, including L1s, L2s, and appchains, in 2023 signals sustained growth and heightened interest.

Due to the popularity of gaming and OP Stack, the Optimism protocol stands to gain more traction.

Moreover, the Optimism protocol experienced notable growth indicators, with network activity surging by 10% and revenue witnessing an impressive 46% increase.

These positive metrics position Optimism as a promising player in the evolving landscape of Layer 2 solutions.

State of the OP token

Examining the OP token’s performance, it was valued at $3.31, reflecting a marginal decline of -2.85% in the last 24 hours.

Despite a decrease in network growth, indicating a potential slowdown in new user interest, the token’s velocity surged. This indicated heightened trading activity around OP.

Additionally, the MVRV ratio for OP displayed growth, suggesting that addresses holding OP tokens were highly profitable.

While this signifies potential gains for existing holders, it also raises considerations about the potential for profit-taking actions in the future. These factors could affect the price of OP negatively and there could be some corrections coming OP’s way in the future.
