OP Summer is coming? These projects have started mining and will reward users with tens of millions of Optimism tokens


Optimism's economic model incorporates retroactive funding of public goods. Project parties may submit proposals for funding from the Optimism Collective. According to snapshot voting records, there are currently more than 50 applications for projects, and a single project that has passed the application has received funding ranging from 300,000 to 10 million OP.

Recently, project parties that have received retroactive funding from public products have begun to feed back the Optimism ecosystem and start mining to obtain OP token rewards. This article PANews will introduce the projects and activities that have taken the lead in opening OP mining rewards.

Aave: Liquidity mining distributes 5 million OP

The plan will last for 90 days and will distribute 5 million OP to Optimism market users of the Aave protocol.

WePiggy is an open source, non-custodial crypto asset lending protocol.

The pUSDC lock-up period is divided into 30 days, 90 days and 180 days. The total reward includes 240,000 OP and 75 million WPC. The current annualized rate of return ranges from 24% to 50%. Users can receive OP rewards at any time.

Lyra: Provide liquidity to share 37500 OP

Lyra is an options trading AMM protocol that allows traders to buy and sell options on cryptocurrencies against liquidity pools. Liquidity Providers (LPs) deposit liquidity into the treasury to earn fees paid when trading options. LPs traders use Lyra to trade options. They can buy options from market maker vaults or sell options to MMV. On July 27, 2021, Lyra raised $3.3 million in seed funding, led by venture capital firms Framework Ventures and ParaFi capital.

Lyra opened the liquidity provision of Market-Maker Vault at 9:00 on August 3rd, Beijing time, to provide users with 37,500 OP tokens. The current annualized rate of return is 18.3%. Users can receive OP rewards every 14 days.

The amount of OP rewards that liquidity providers receive depends on their sUSD share in the pool. If a user pledges stkLyra obtained by Lyra tokens, holding stkLyra can increase the user's mining weight, and the upper limit of the increase is 2 times the share of sUSD in the mining pool.
