Finance Finally Decentralized - Introducing Hedget

Options and other derivatives have been tried in a decentralized manner, but have struggled due to lag in settlement and other technological limitations that come with blockchain. Digital financial tools greatly rely on relational databases due to complex business logic that requires advanced querying, something that blockchains simply cannot do – that is, until Hedget came along.

Utilizing the Chromia blockchain as an Ethereum Layer 2 Solution
  • Backend is powered by Chromia Relational blockchain, allowing for zero fees and greater flexibility
  • The protocol will only use the Ethereum chain for settlement, minimizing slow and expensive transactions
  • Full Ethereum ecosystem integration provides access to mainstream assets and liquidity
European style options supporting cash/physical settlement
  • Fully collateralized option creation at the core layer
  • Option providers are required to put down full collateral, ensuring a secure trading process for end users
The only Reliable Protection layer for leveraged trading positions
  • Decentralized options can be used to protect DeFi positions in lending and trading
  • Hedget will be powered by flexible modules that can be integrated seamlessly into other protocols and platforms
