A bit about us:

What started as a few users, has turned into a global community that has collectively traded more than $3 billion of notional volume across 45,000+ trades and we're just getting started. This startup is pioneering DeFi-native derivatives and options infrastructure. They are building a capital-efficient DeFi options trading protocol that allows users to buy, sell, and create options on ERC20s. DeFi users and products rely on their smart contracts and interface to hedge themselves against DeFi risks or take speculative positions on different cryptocurrencies or tokens.

They believe that building an inclusive, fair, and open financial system is a problem that will be solved with a deep understanding of crypto, finance, security-focused engineering, and genuine empathy for users.
