Magic Mirror app mirrors Optimism NFTs to Ethereum mainnet


  • Earlier, non-fungible tokens from Layer 2 were not identifiable to apps such as Twitter.
  • It is possible to switch the NFT that lies within wach mirror rather than minting a new NFT every time.
  • Optimism is on its way to lead in Ethereum scaling solutions.

Optimism developers Kelvin Fichter and jvmi launched Magic Mirror, a new app, on November 9. The app will enable owners of NFT to mirror or copy Optimism non-fungible tokens onto the Ethereum mainnet. From now, NFT owners can utilize Optimism NFTs in a diversity of confirmed applications like in the profile badge system of Twitter, where earlier only non-fungible tokens native to Ethereum Layer 1 were possible to be used. 

The NFT badge feature of Twitter was released in January to enable owners of NFT to prove ownership of their very own art. It is possible to use verified NFTs as profile pictures on Twitter and are marked with a hexagonal shape. Until Magic Mirror was not released, NFT owners from networks such as Avalanche, Optimism or Polygon were unable to do this. 

According to the company, the new tool is an effort to fix this issue for owners of Optimism NFTs. Users can switch the NFT that’s within wach mirror whenever they want, which means no need to mint a new NFT every time. At a time, it is possible to put only one Optimism NFT inside the mirror. 

Magic Mirror is an attempt by Optimism to win the fight among Ethereum scaling solutions. A version of balanced was launched on the platform in June. In September, 1inch users on the platform were given a 300K token airdrop as incentives for using the network.
