Challenges & Solutions
Options derivatives are highly complex financial products, which are difficult to use and have high barriers to entry. Options derivatives often deter many users. Therefore, we are introducing simplified derivatives products to serve users more conveniently. Meanwhile, Antimatter is facing a real challenge of a plain product structure and the lack of real users. So we plan to develop more accessible products based on the original derivatives ecosystem, in order to find new growth room.
Hence, we decided to launch Antimatter's Dual Investment product, which is a decentralized non-principal protected structured product with enhanced yield, backed by options. The product has a "market-neutral, returns guaranteed" feature, where the yield is clear and fixed at the time of purchase, while the settlement currency is uncertain. At maturity, the settlement currency depends on the outcome of the settlement price at maturity compared to the strike price.
Meanwhile, Antimatter's Bull & Bear Tokens product was designed as a Uniswap for options and derivatives with ease-of-use and improved user experience, as well as an innovative way that abandons the use of oracles to secure the system and maintain systematic independence. Instead, arbitrage activities act as “oracles” in Antimatter to make sure the price of call and put tokens follow the trend of market price movement.
Another product of Antimatter is Financial NFT. Many discussions in the NFT space have been revolving around fine arts and music, making us nearly look over the bigger, even more exciting use cases of this technology: financial NFTs. Antimatter turns NFTs into vehicles and containers of assets to store them with different locking and releasing mechanisms, as well as to facilitate various financial activities.
