This article provides educational resources about the Optimism Collective and Superchain to build a more regenerative society for all. The following provides timestamps from a live discussion with community leaders during an Eden Fractal meeting, which you can see below. Enjoy!
For anyone that’s unfamiliar with Optimism Collective, it is a new type of community designed to reward public goods and build a sustainable future for the open internet. Optimism is a pioneering Ethereum L2 community that is highly aligned with fractal community values for creating public goods and improving human coordination for everyone’s benefit!
The growth of Optimism is immense and the education around it helps to convey the benefits of why its working. One of the questions asked was about the number of existing DAOs on Optimism. From 2:01:04 to 2:05:14, Dan endeavored to provide data on adoption detailing participation in retroPGF and the promising undertakings using the OP stack.
To further support views, Dan presented the Superchain website at 2:07:05 showing the many chains using the OP stack. He gave examples like Basechain launched by Coinbase and Worldcoin built by OpenAI. At 2:09:12, Dan explained one of the best ways to start building and familiarise with the scope of opportunities is to gauge adoption looking at the recipients of RetroPGF 2. This list helps to get a sense of what’s been rewarded in the past and therefore, inspire collaboration. (A quick update here is that users can’t access the project profiles from the last round because the page was deprecated, so an alternative of this is the recently launched archive page in the RetroPGF Hub, which is made by a community member. He advices to correct anything in case its incorrectly listed). Dan noted about 200 projects that received funding in the retroPGF2 results page, where 10m OP tokens were distributed to fund public goods that support development and usage of the OP Stack.
Continuing on at 2:04:12, Dan emphasized the significant impact on funding retroactively and the many community supporters routing for support public goods projects on Optimism. The new season of retroPGF Round 3 has 30 million OP tokens allocated to reward contributions that have supported the development and adoption of Optimism (and this is just the beginning!). Dan resurfaced once again at 2:09:53 the love for public goods and humanity, which gets supported more and more with each new season of RetroPGF. This represents the biggest opportunity for Optimism Fractal and the team is excited to port over the exciting social games and fractal governance tools to Optimism’s ecosystem. 🔴 🌱
