Worth noting that Synthetix will distribute over $8M of Optimism's governance tokens to its perpetual swaps users as rewards.

The reward system will reward traders based on the fees paid, the volume generated, and the amount staked in SNX, Synthetix's governance token. As reported, users who stake 2,500 or more SNX can further boost their rewards with a maximum bonus of 15%. 

The program will begin in the first week of April and run for 20 weeks.

In the first week, 50,000 OP tokens will be distributed, followed by 100,000 OP in weeks two and three. The remaining weeks of the program will see 200,000 OP per week.

The rewards will be issued from Synthetix's treasury, which received 9 million OP from the Optimism Foundation in July 2022.

Synthetix has also deployed version 3 (v3) on the Ethereum mainnet following security audits on February 23. 

According to its developers, Synthetix v3 offers developers better architecture for developing faster, more complex, and more efficient decentralized financial applications (DeFi). Additionally, V3 will provide simplified staking and differentiated debt pools, meaning network stakers can contribute collateral to specific asset pools and receive fees without being exposed to every Spartan Council-supported asset.

Synthetix currently has a Total Volume Locked (TVL) of $457.14 million, which includes $303.82 million in Ethereum and $153.32 million in Optimism. Synthetix is trading at $2.88, up 0.08 in 24 hours.  

What is Synthetix:

Synthetix is a decentralised liquidity layer built on Ethereum and Optimism that acts as a backend for DeFi protocols. Stakers provide liquidity to collateralize a portfolio of synthetic assets in exchange for rewards and market yields. This liquidity is used to underwrite synthetic assets and perpetual futures trading at oracle prices, removing the need for traditional order books and counterparties. As a result, liquidity is commutable and fungible across markets, and traditional slippage is eliminated.
