Free NFTs on Optimism – Optimism is one of Ethereum’s most popular second-layer solutions. Launched in January 2021, it now wants to familiarize users with its ecosystem. Thus, Optimism has just unveiled Optimism Quest a series of quests with the key to NFT as a reward.
Optimism: layer 2 is on the rise
As we have seen recently, Optimism is a second-layer solution of Ethereum. Thus, its objective is to deport part of the transactions outside the Ethereum main chain, in order to reduce congestion and improve scalability.
To do this, Optimism relies on the Optimistic Rollup. This solution makes it possible to operate an environment similar to Ethereum. In addition, it inherits the security of Ethereum by regularly publishing the state of the system in compressed form on the Ethereum mainnet.
More than a year after its launch, Optimism is currently the second layer 2 in terms of value deposited through its protocols. Thus, more than 1.3 billion dollars in cryptocurrencies evolve on layer 2.

Optimism Quest: free NFTs to explore the network
Now that its network has reached a certain maturity, Optimism wishes to familiarize its users with all the protocols it hosts.
Thus, like the Odyssey program launched by Arbitrum, Optimism has announced the launch of Optimism Quest.
« We are always looking for opportunities to make Optimism more accessible to new and experienced users. That’s why we’re excited to announce the Optimism Quest: a guided exploration of the ecosystem that allows users to earn NFTs while exploring the applications of Optimism! »
Obviously, at Journal du Coin, we could not miss the opportunity to help our readership win some NFTs for free.
In addition, participating in this program could well open rights to the next OP token airdrops planned by the Optimism teams. One more reason to diligently carry out the various quests developed by Optimism. Indeed, 14% of the total OP token supply has yet to be distributed as an airdrop to the community.
Thus, we are going to accompany you in all of these quests via a series of three articles. In each of these articles, we will explore, step by step, the main protocols deployed on Optimism.
