Tap in Tuesday: Rethinking the Synthetic Token Approach w/ Synfutures

DeFi Slate Fam:

Hope y’all are having an epic week. Synthetic Assets are a core building block of DeFi so don’t miss this one.

At a bare bones level, synthetic assets are tokens that track some asset’s price. Sounds simple in theory but the synthetic asset’s parity with its origin asset is difficult to maintain. Pricing these tokens involves bringing in information external to the blockchain in order to calculate the price.

Synthetix, UMA, among others are the powerhouses when it comes to synthetic assets. They help tokens like WBTC, sUSD, sOIL, sTESLA maintain their peg to an underlying price feed.

Synfutures has a new approach. We won’t give away too much.

Watch below to find the gaps in existing synthetic solutions and how Synfutures closes the loop on decentralized derivatives.
