2022 Review of Optimistic Rollups

Quick Take

  • The growth of optimistic rollups in 2022 has been significant, largely due to the spike in Optimism’s growth after the launch of its governance token, OP.
  • Arbitrum saw significant growth too, as speculators started interacting with Arbitrum more in hopes of being eligible for Arbitrum’s potential airdrop.
  • Boba saw a relative decline in TVL and on-chain activity, likely due to the ongoing bear market.
  • Metis may have seen a decline in TVL but has continued to onboard users and developers to their ecosystem with their Metis Marathon initiative.
