Financial derivatives are a function of a certain underlying asset such as stocks, commodities, currencies, indexes, bonds, etc. Futures, options, and swaps are common types of derivatives. The economic purpose of financial derivatives is to conveniently and accurately obtain risk exposure about a certain asset with a lower capital cost.

Back to derivatives, risk trading is the core function of finance, and it has always existed in the crypto world, but it is mainly done by centralized exchanges. However, the main mode of operation of a centralized exchange is a semi-centralized solution for off-chain matching and off-chain settlement. …

1. If I’m right, Deri Protocol is built for derivatives and not spot, however, vast majority of Crypto users are into spot trading, only few experts know about derivatives, this makes me wonder why you decided to focus on derivatives and not spot?

Don’t you think the Technicality and complexity of derivatives would serve as a barrier for users trying to use Deri or how do you aim to make the platform as simple as A B C for them to use?

I believe projects like Uniswap/Sushiswap/Balancer/Curve/Pancake take care of the spot trading pretty well. And DeFi needs derivatives too…


Deri is a decentralized protocol for users to exchange risk exposures precisely and capital-efficiently. It is the DeFi way to trade derivatives: to hedge, to speculate, to arbitrage, all on chain. This is achieved by liquidity pools playing the roles of counterparties for users. With Deri protocol, risk exposures are tokenized as NFTs so that they can be imported into other DeFi projects for their own financial purposes. Having provided an effective on-chian mechanism to exchange and hold risks, Deri protocol has minted one of the most important blocks of the DeFi infrastructure.

1. What do you mean by…

  1. How is the Deri protocol funding rate calculated to balance the long and short sides of positions?

Basically the majority side positions need to pay the minority side positions. So some arbitragers will simply take the minority side to earn the funding fee, and then, the two sides are balanced.

2. How many types of Derivates Markets Deri Protocol is capable to support?

First stage we are supporting Perpetual contracts. Going forward, we will roll out futures with expirations and options.

3. Do you really think it’s possible to reduce dependency on the CEX? How will this be achieved


Basic modules of modern finance A few months ago, in his article “Re-understanding DeFi from Eight Key Perspectives and Logics”, Dr. Chuanwei Zou sorted out the six functional modules in the modern financial system and their corresponding relationships with the DeFi system. Among the six basic modules, managing risk is sitting in the core of the entire financial system, and it is the more sophisticated part of finance. It needs to be pointed out that the risk management includes all the activities in the financial industry dealing with risks, including passive risk management that mitigates business risks (usually middle office’…
