Vortex Announcement 💫
Recently, we announced Vortex - our take on basis trading strategy. Here is a TL;DR:
‘Basis trading’ is an arbitrage strategy used in financial markets which takes advantage of the difference between the spot and future price of a commodity (the ‘basis’).
Vortex is an on-chain basis trading strategy that aims to generate long-term, sustainable and rewarding returns while remaining market-neutral.
Vortex v1 captures the advantages of basis trading and, due to its construction, benefits the ecosystem by contributing liquidity that is crucial for all platforms it’s integrated with.
Vortex is a market neutral strategy with numerous risk management procedures in place to ensure it can weather all market conditions.
Vortex v1 will launch on testnet imminently and on mainnet in Q4 21. If you want to participate in the early beta release on mainnet, please fill out this form.
