Optimism Airdrop 1 is available to claim
Optimism is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum that can support all of Ethereum's Dapps. Instead of running all computation and data on the Ethereum network, Optimism puts all transaction data on-chain and runs computation off-chain, increasing Ethereum's transactions per second and decreasing transaction fees.
The very first airdrop of Optimism will be given to its early adopters and active users, there is a list of criterias satisfying any one of which makes you eligible for claiming the drop .
The whole list and specifications about the drop are givenhere.

Wow, what a day.— Optimism (✨🔴_🔴✨) (@optimismPBC) June 1, 2022
OP Drop #1 had a turbulent launch which we finally stabilized after more than five hours of non-stop work.
We’ll be publishing a full, detailed retrospective on the lessons learned next week. Let’s quickly talk about what happened.
Optimism has burnt more than 200 ETH in total and paid 1.6% of the revenue to Ethereum
After the Airdrop went live Optimism more than 120 ETH by OVM canonical transaction chain , 68 ETH by Optimism Gateway and 42 ETH by OVM state commitment chain (at the time of writing ) had already been burnt .
Optimism alone has paid more than 1.6% of all fee revenue paid on Ethereum yesterday which in fiat money is thousands of dollars of ETH burned in just a couple hours of Optimism Airdrop Claims started.
Optimism was responsible for 1.6% of all fee revenue paid on Ethereum yesterday (https://t.co/ve9FiASLSc).— David Mihal.eth (ℹ️, ℹ️) (@dmihal) June 1, 2022
That's hundreds of thousands of dollars of ETH burned in just a couple hours (airdrop didn't start until late in the day).

Liquid Staking is the talk of the town
Liquid staking is the act of delegating your tokens to a service that stakes for you without losing access to your funds. These services are provided by platforms such as Lido ,Swell Network etc . These are called Liquid Staking Derivatives (LSD) . Lido is one of the LSDs which is widely accepted in the market which is not where the Ethereum roots belong so you should consider other competitors before choosing a staking platform. Swell Network has given the reasons to use their platform in the following tweet .
Liquid staking is the talk of the town lately, and will become more popular after the #ETH2 merge. Existing solutions have paved the way for liquid staking, and have proven to be robust. But, what's left to be desired? Here's our staking 2.0 manifesto 🌊 #NotFinancialAdvice pic.twitter.com/dj8bJfaNsT— Swell Network (@swellnetworkio) June 1, 2022

New Asset: Coinbase will add support for Optimism (OP) on the Optimism network only. Do not send this asset over Ethereum or other networks or your funds may be permanently lost. pic.twitter.com/yuNTp40PlL— Coinbase Assets (@CoinbaseAssets) May 31, 2022

Client diversity on eth2 by Coinbase
Coinbase in their recent tweet has explained what steps they have taken to make themselves the most diversified staking pools .
1/ We told you that we’re working on client diversity on eth2. Today, we’re excited to share an update. 👇🧵 https://t.co/jjzsD9tCXi— Coinbase Cloud (@CoinbaseCloud) May 31, 2022
Zig-Zag labs - a project based on ZK ecosystem is launched
ZigZag Labs is launched to support the vital projects for the ZK ecosystem that are manufactured with the coordination of a wide range of developers, designers, researchers and other contributors. Their main aim is to make interacting with blockchains easier for a non tech savvy person . For example- An order book DEX that emulates existing centralised exchanges perfectly, with spot/perpetuals trading, while also remaining non-custodial and no-sign ups?
Learn more about this first in the game project in the tweet.
