Hedgey is a novel decentralized options protocol that lets anyone create and participate in authentic options markets for any token on Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, Fantom and xDai. Using Hedgey, anyone can write and trade options on any cryptocurrency or decentralized asset.
Hedgey's goal is to let everyone have access to the power of options as they exist in centralized marketplaces without the dependency on banks and brokers. Hedgey is universal access to the future of financial markets.
In an industry first, Hedgey creates exercisable, transferable, time-expiring, fully-collateralized call and put options without the need of liquidity pools on multiple networks.
Hedgey lets you write and trade options on any cryptocurrency or decentralized asset. This means you can go short or long on any cryptocurrency on multiple networks. It is the single most powerful decentralized derivatives protocol.
Hedgey brings the same approach to options markets that traditional markets have used for decades, only without a dependency on banks or brokers. Hedgey acts as an aggregated decentralized P2P marketplace where anyone can create markets, write options, buy options, sell options, and exercise options.
The Hedgey smart contracts lock assets when orders are written, and automatically transfer funds when orders are purchased or exercised.
Hedgey enables retail investors, decentralized hedge funds, and token teams to participate in decentralized options through two core components:
Hedgey is the first true DeFi options marketplace that lets anyone write and trade options without a dependency on inflexible liquidity pools. Additionally, Hedgey enables capital-light trading of options. Anyone can write calls and puts for assets with existing Automated Market Maker pools (AMMs) for optional cash-closing ability using flash swaps.
