After the announcement, it appears that crypto enthusiasts are taking an interest in Optimism. However, more than the progress update, people have been left wondering about a particular statement made on Twitter along with the progress update.

Is Optimism crypto a thing?

At the bottom of its tweet, the blockchain project said that 'A new chapter is near', and that has given rise to speculations that Optimism could be looking to launch or airdrop its native cryptocurrency.

In addition, Coinbase, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, has added a price page for Optimism crypto. However, the Optimism crypto does not exist at the moment.

Coinbase's page does not mention any price data of Optimism crypto, but the users can access the page.
