Dive into the Optimism Ecosystem with Ambire Wallet
This week it’s a Layer 2 solution that we are adding for you to explore and seize: our dev team just released the integration with the Optimism blockchain.
The launch ups our total to 10 supported networks on Ambire Wallet and counting… 😄
Optimistic on Optimism
Released as a testnet back in 2019, Optimism’s alpha mainnet officially launched in early 2021. It is a layer 2 optimistic rollup, making good on its promise of lowering fees and improving speed compared to Ethereum mainnet.
Integrations with protocols such as Uniswap and Synthetix have saved users over $1B in fees to date..
Optimism recently announced the launch of The Optimism Collective, a vision and plan for a sustainable and abundant future for the open internet. Optimism is both technologically and culturally aligned with Ethereum, having full EVM-equivalence and a commitment to fund public goods on Ethereum.

By now you already know that switching between different chains in Ambire Wallet is simple, just select Optimism through the network selector:
After you choose the Optimism blockchain, you can simply connect to your Optimism Bridge account or other Optimism dApps though the WalletConnect feature:
That’s all there is to it: you’re ready to make the most of Optimism and its exploding ecosystem, going at high speeds and saving on fees straight from your Ambire account 🚀🚀🚀
