There were several disruptions in the crypto industry in 2021, and we’re only halfway through. In the derivatives market, the Octopus protocol is one of the leading disruptors in the industry. Interestingly, the decentralised finance (DeFi) market has grown to a $ 100 billion market.
Octopus to Capitalize on Huge and Untapped Potential of the Decentralized Derivatives Market
According to data from DeFi Pulse, the total value of DeFi assets locked on the Ethereum blockchain has risen to $66 billion. Since January 2021, that figure has more than quadrupled to $15 billion. DeFi also shines with Binance Smart Chain (BSC). According to Defistation data, the total value of DeFi assets locked in Binance’s smart chain is $38 billion. Interestingly, the market will continue to grow and expand, and Octopus Protocol is one of the projects hoping to capitalize on the rise of this huge market.
The Octopus Protocol is a decentralized financial protocol based on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). It enables users to issue, trade and manage decentralized derivative assets. The Octopus platform has a trusted architecture that enables developers and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) to deploy and create derivative assets on the Binance Smart Chain network.
These derivative assets or synthetic assets created on the blockchain network may represent some of the underlying assets in the real world. Octopus is trying to capitalize on the huge and untapped potential of the decentralized derivatives market. This ecosystem offers an affordable market solution for the entire decentralized derivatives market.
Octopus has a local token called OPS token, which is a BEP20 standard. It aims to strengthen the octopus ecosystem. It will also serve as an incentive and reward for individuals who use the Octopus platform. OPS tokens also grant the Octopus community the right to vote on governance within the protocol. The supply of OPS tokens is set at 150,000,000 and the initial supply is 8,700,000.
The octopus ecosystem offers many benefits, including:
Unlimited Exposure to Synthetic Assets
The ecosystem offers users unlimited exposure to multiple instruments of derivative assets such as stocks, bonds, equities, futures (raised as tokenized assets). It also offers you trading in derivatives with very small spreads and a variety of innovative hedging tools with no risk of liquidation. In addition, as a user of the Octopus platform, you can use various tools to create blockchain-based synthetic assets. This in turn creates equal opportunities and accessibility for everyone who uses the platform. Another interesting thing about the Octopus ecosystem is that you can even switch between any derivative asset without holding the underlying asset.
