4. Optimism Collective
Optimism introduced the “Optimism Collective”, a large-scale experiment in decentralized governance, established through two governing chambers: the Token House and the Citizens’ House. Their first airdrop of the $OP token established the Token House by distributing $OP to thousands of addresses that have engaged in positive-sum, community-oriented behavior. If you have used Perp v2 you are most likely eligible.
