Deri Protocol Monthly Report for January 2022
Highlights in January
- Launched Deri Protocol V3, a defining project of DeFi 2.0 that will bring the “lego gameplay” of DeFi projects to a new level. With the introduction of “external custody”, Deri Protocol V3 supports multiple base tokens with substantially higher scalability and capital efficiency. Also, the DPMM of Deri V3 universally supports the funding-fee-based perpetual derivatives. Consequently, it can more flexibly organize liquidity for derivative trading across different types. Derivative innovations are thus made much easier under the v3 framework.
- BTCUSD-100000-C, BTCUSD-40000-C, BTCUSD-30000-P, BTCUSD-20000-P, ETHUSD-3000-C, and ETHUSD-2000-P are live on Deri Everlasting Options.
- Deri received an investment from TRON.
- Deri launched a demo testnet, in which traders can experience Perpetual Futures & Everlasting Options without risking real assets.
We’re excited to share with the community the roadmap of Deri Protocol 2022!

About Deri Protocol
Deri Protocol = (Perpetual Futures + Everlasting Options) x Decentralized.
Deri is the DeFi way to trade derivatives: to hedge, to speculate, to arbitrage, all on chain. With Deri Protocol, trades are executed under AMM paradigm and positions are tokenized as NFTs, highly composable with other DeFi projects. Having provided an on-chain mechanism to exchange risk exposures precisely and capital-efficiently, Deri Protocol has minted one of the most important blocks of the DeFi infrastructure.
