This year has been a tough sail for Optimism since May 2022, when the Terra/Luna implosion caused a cascade of bankruptcies, layoffs, and liquidations. Subsequently, the chain of unfortunate market and geopolitical events like the Russian invasion of Ukraine, U.S. inflation, and 3AC and Celsius insolvency, has also contributed to the downward pressure on the price of OP.
With the recent massive downfall of the crypto market caused by FTX contagion, is it possible for Optimism to reclaim its all-time high in 2023? Continue with the article to learn about Optimism price analysis and prediction by Coinpaper.
What is Optimism?
Optimism is an Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution that takes the transactions out of the mainnet and processes them off-chain, and then rolls them up into a single batch that gets published back to the blockchain. Optimism’s underlying technology is called “optimistic rollups” (hence the name) that assumes that all processed transactions are valid until proven otherwise. In June 2022, Optimism launched its long-awaited token OP via an airdrop to reward early adopters and active users of its ecosystem.

Optimism price prediction 2023
The current market sentiment is full of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (commonly known by the acronym FUD), as fears of FTX contagion mount. At the moment, it’s difficult to assess exactly how much damage has FTX collapse has done to the crypto industry, since some affected crypto companies may be already secretly insolvent due to highly leveraged positions, as we have seen in the aftermath of Terra's implosion.
According to our estimates, it will take months for the full scale of FTX bankruptcy to become clear, so the turning point for the crypto market won’t come before late Q1 to early Q2 2023, although for now, it seems that the industry has absorbed most of the damage.
Another market factor that should be taken into consideration is how successful will be the U.S. Federal Reserve’s efforts to curb inflation. For now, there is reason to believe that Fed is making some progress in its attempts to cool the overheating economy — on November 30, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell announced it’s time to slow the pace of coming rate hikes, which immediately triggered a positive reaction from both crypto and equity markets.
Given the above information, one can easily guess that there will be a considerable divergence between bullish and bearish Optimism 2023 price predictions due to multiple unknown factors. For this reason, we estimate that the bullish scenario will see Optimism price at $3.35 to $4.11. On the flip side, a fading interest in the new meme coin may push the price of Optimism to $1.22-$0.82 lows.
Optimism price prediction 2024
In 2024, the global macroeconomic backdrop is likely to be more favorable to the crypto market, adding value to Optimism (OP) and other cryptos. However, the possibility of black swan events similar to the collapse of FTX cannot be completely ignored.
Keeping this in mind, we foresee the price of Optimism to climb as high as $4.93, with the more distant prospect of reaching $5.72 in 2024. The bearish scenario is likely to see Optimism (OP) trading between $3.16 and $3.02 in 2024.
Optimism price prediction 2025

Our Optimism 2025 price forecast expects OP to rally towards $6.83 and reach $8.31 by the end of the year. The bearish scenario would see Optimism at $4.23 to $3.94.
Optimism (OP) price prediction 2026
