Synthetix integrates Optimistic Ethereum on L2 into its staking dApp

The Synthetix decentralized staking application is now compatible with the Optimistic Ethereum network on Layer 2. Back in January 2021, SNX announced that staking on Synthetix will be live on the L2 Optimistic Ethereum network. Now the SNX staking dApp is compatible with the Layer 2 network and allows users to benefit from the better interface and features.

Layer 2 solutions have been extremely popular in the past year as Ethereum fees skyrocketed while other chains like the Binance Smart Chain started to take over.

SNX/USD 12-hour chart

The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart shows weak resistance ahead. The strongest area is located between $18.9 and $19.48 with 4.3 million SNX in volume, coinciding with the upper trendline of the pattern. Aggressive buyers can enter a long position on SNX now before the potential breakout as the IOMAP also indicates that Synthetix has a lot of support on the way down.
