Here’s what you need to know about the assets

Ethereum (ETH) is a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications. Ethereum is a marketplace of financial services, games and apps that is trustless, decentralized and secure. ETH is the cryptocurrency powering the Ethereum network. It’s used to pay for transactions, as a store of value or peer-to-peer payment method, or as collateral to generate entirely different crypto tokens that run on Ethereum.

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.
