Powering safe, solvent and trustless trading of any asset.
MARKET Protocol has been created to provide a secure, flexible, open source foundation for decentralized trading on the Ethereum blockchain. We provide the pieces necessary to create a decentralized exchange, including the requisite clearing and collateral pool infrastructure, enabling third parties to build applications for trading.
Issues with current exchanges
centralized, limited access
security, safety, and custody of funds
hard to short or hedge digital assets
limited exposure to cross-chain or real world assets
How we solve these issues
MARKET Protocol Smart Contracts decentralize accounting, custody of funds and position management.
Real world and digital assets
easily short crypto assets without borrowing
enables traders and businesses to hedge price
gain cross-chain exposure without taking custody of the underlying asset
no need for multiple exchanges and wallets
recreate traditional off-chain relationships like AAPL/USDT using stable coins such as Tether or Maker Dai
Easily create new contracts
What ERC20 token is used for collateral?
Who provides the external data for trade settlement?
What is the underlying asset?
Users can create contracts with MARKET Protocol’s dApp guiding them through the process
A contract defines the ERC20 token used as collateral, the oracle and the reference asset.
Once created, MARKET Protocol contracts are deployed to the blockchain allowing trustless, many to many trading
Exiting a position is as easy as trading with another user or holding the contract until expiration
