Observation of the new year
Following January 2023, there was a general uptick in the cryptocurrency market, with considerable growth in Layer 2 and LSD (Liquid Staking Derivatives) digital assets. As a result, these assets gained more attention within the market.
Layer 2 inherits security from Ethereum and offers lower fees, so there is a growing interest in the two major Layer 2 projects: Optimism and Arbitrum. Optimism has utilized its token economics to provide robust support for public projects in its ecosystem, while the emergence of two exceptional projects on Arbitrum, GMX and MAGIC, has renewed people's enthusiasm for Layer 2.
A step-by-step tutorial on how to participate in Layer 2 on imToken has been prepared for you.
LSD (Liquid Staking Derivatives)
With the upcoming Ethereum Shanghai Upgrade in March, investors will be able to withdraw staked ETH principal and profits. In light of this development, projects like Lido and Rocket Pool related to Layer 2 solutions are gaining market attention.
If you're interested in ETH staking and increasing your profits, we have a tutorial available for you.
