OpenSea, the most popular NFT marketplace, has announced it now supports the L2 scaling solution Optimism. Until now, the majority of Optimism NFTs were stored in the Optimism-focused NFT marketplace Quix.

Optimism is a scalable, fast, and stable L2 network built as a minimal extension to the current Ethereum network. The blockchain is developing an “infrastructure that promotes the growth and sustainability of public goods.”

Last week, the marketplace integrated the Arbitrum One solution, which is also an Ethereum scaling protocol. OpenSea supports six blockchains in total: Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, Klaytn, and now, Arbitrum with Optimism. 

It’s been less than 24 hours since Optimism NFTs appeared on OpenSea. Yet still, the top Optimism collection on OpenSea is Early Optimists with 8 ETH in 24-hour trading volume. Second and third are Optimism Quests and OP Delegatooors with 6 ETH. Other collections that the platform welcomed onboard were Apetimism, Bored Town, Optichads, and MotorHeadz. 

“Having the largest NFT marketplace on Optimism is going to be absolutely massive for Optimism’s creators, collectors, and NFT appreciatoooors. We couldn’t be more excited for the latest addition to the Arts District in the City of Optimism,”

Optimism wrote on Twitter.

The Optimism team also said that the best part of the collaboration is knowing that “OpenSea activity on Optimism funds a sustainable future for Ethereum.”

The blockchain’s native Optimism (OP) token fell by 7.5% in the last 24 hours and is currently trading at $0.88.

In other news, OpenSea is trying to improve the marketplace’s security. The company has paid bounty rewards to two ethical hackers who discovered separate critical OpenSea vulnerabilities in the last several days. The hackers were rewarded with $100,000 each.
