As the NFT market continues to grow to reach $300bn by 2030 (digital identity, gaming, tokenised real world assets, decentralized IP, etc.), there is a multi-billion dollar opportunity in building an options and derivatives market for NFTs – which does not exist yet. In comparison, in TradFi, option trading surpassed $6T this year (vs. $17T for equities trading). Options are a great financial tool for being exposed and speculate on an asset without owning it, and is the next growth area for NFTs.

Problem we solve
NFTs are a new asset class with a set of challenges when it comes to creating options – like the low liquidity, the pricing and the partial non fungibility. Some companies are trying to build derivatives on floor prices but this approach means relying on an oracle which means price manipulation is possible. There is a booming NFT financialization landscape, and we aim at taking the lead on options, with an approach radically different to other companies in the landscape – by using a physical delivery of the NFT at the option closing, instead of relying on floor prices. Typically our platform would allow:

  • retail investors like NFT traders to hedge their holdings during market downturn, and make profits on collections going down
  • institutional investors (market makers, hedge funds) to implement NFT market neutral strategies and finally unlock institution defi money flow to the NFT market

Our product

Our first product is a peer-to-peer marketplace allowing NFT traders (400k active users / month) to bet on the rise and fall of NFT collections floor prices, with no oracle needed. Bears will be able to short collections (for the first time without manipulation possible) while Bulls will be able to buy discounted NFTs. The product is designed for simplicity and fun, and is based on the feedback of 10s of NFT traders, that are impatiently waiting for the product release.

We start by targeting the active and engaged community of NFT power traders, who are currently looking for new solutions to make profits during the bear market – the old recipe (flipping, holding) not working anymore. We have a compelling value proposition for them, allowing seamless shorting and hedging. As we attract more users, we’ll iterate on our product to enable more parameters, launch new features and a dedicated desk for professional investors (defi institutions, NFT funds, market markers, etc.).

We are closing our pre-seed round with tier-1 cryptonative funds and top influential NFT and DeFi traders.

We are closing our pre-seed round with tier-1 cryptonative funds and angels, have an alpha available on the testnet, and the usable beta version will be ready to onboard the first selected traders by Q4 2022.
