OpenSea is now compatible with Ethereum's second layer solution, Optimism, as announced in a press release. The collaboration will allow Optimism to join the other 5 networks available in this non-fungible token market: Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, Klaytn, and Arbitrum. 

The non-fungible token market welcomed “optimists”, via Twitter. Now NFT projects from this solution will be available on OpenSea, including Apetism, Bored Town, and OptiChads. 

“After working with the @optimismFND🔴 team and several projects on the chain, we can’t wait to meet the rest of the community!” 

The Optimism collections have been primarily available on Quix until now. Its introduction in this market of non-fungible tokens will allow creators to increase the visibility of their work since OpenSea is placed among the 500 most visited websites on Alexa. 

With a total of 121.7 million visits, the NFT giant is among the most visited in the world. There is increasing interest in second-layer solutions. In fact, Optimism has gone from 41,000 to 142,000 transactions in the first six months of last year. In addition, 21% of the transactions carried out in Ethereum are carried out through this type of solution. 

The introduction of Optimism in this NFT marketplace shows the interest of this second-layer solution in increasing its audience. Recently, Ethereum changed its consensus protocol and said scaling solution accompanied it in the process, so it seems that the platform is moving towards further expansion.
