Comparing's use of the Optimism network to's success on Arbitrum, another layer 2 solution, we can see the huge potential for growth of the SNX token.'s achievements have demonstrated the scalability benefits of layer 2 solutions, attracting a substantial user base and increasing demand for its native token. On top of that, SNX stakers earn a part of the fees earned on the protocol, and SNX tokenomics are excellent since almost all the tokens have already been minted and hence the circulating supply is 99.8% of the max supply...

Moreover, what makes truly fascinating is its integration with Kwenta, a decentralized exchange built on top of Synthetix. Kwenta allows users to engage in leverage trading by utilizing sUSD, the stablecoin minted on the Synthetix protocol. This combination of and Kwenta enables users to explore advanced trading strategies and maximize their returns.

By providing a robust infrastructure for synthetic assets and leveraging the power of Kwenta, continues to attract both experienced traders and newcomers to the DeFi space, as shown on the L2 (Optimism) SNX monthly fee graph below :
