- Amber Group withdrew a substantial amount of OP tokens from Binance.
- This withdrawal triggered a surge in trading volume and token price of Optimism.
- Optimism’s total value locked (TVL) increased significantly.
A sizable withdrawal of OP tokens by cryptocurrency firm Amber Group from the Binance exchange has sparked a rally in the price and activity around the Optimism network.
Amber Group’s withdrawal of its substantial OP holdings from Binance led to a surge in Optimism’s trading volume and token price.
As a result, Optimism’s total value locked (TVL), or sum of assets staked on its protocols, has increased noticeably. The heightened activity and visibility from Amber Group’s withdrawal come as Optimism aims to cement itself as a leading Layer 2 protocol for enabling fast, low-cost Ethereum transactions. According to the data from DefiLlama, Optimism’s TVL currently stands at $745.6 million.
Data from Binance shows that OP has had a trading volume of 77,341,673.47 USDT in the last 24 hours. 42.36 million OP was traded during this period.
The price of OP surged from a 24-hour low of $1.695 to a high of $1.927. OP is trading at $1.913 with an 11.4% surge in value over the last 24 hours.
The OP token itself has benefited from the renewed focus, with its price rallying over the past week thanks to the surge in volume and activity.
Optimism launched in 2020 as a project focused on scaling Ethereum through rollups that bundle transactions off-chain before settling them on Layer 1. Its native token governs the network and incentivizes its security.
Amber Group’s withdrawal underscores interest from major crypto ecosystem players in Optimism’s long-term potential. The ensuing OP token price and volume rally reflect broader optimism regarding its growth prospects within the scaling solution landscape.
