Bumper and Metis Announce Partnership to Provide Seamless Trading Experience

Bumper, the new DeFi protocol which protects crypto assets from price volatility, and Metis, the Layer 2 protocol for Ethereum, are working together to deliver a better user experience for Bumper’s community.

Bumper’s solution provides a “Set and Forget” solution for users’ assets deposited with the protocol. Bumper is a pure, decentralised market for on-chain asset price volatility. Users set a floor price, and if the market crashes, their asset will never fall below that price. Importantly, if the market pumps, their asset rises too.

Protected positions incur an incremental, floating premium based on asset price movements. This in turn is used to incentivise the complementary side of the market, wherein depositors may supply stablecoin into a liquidity reserve and earn a yield.

Dubbed “God mode for Crypto,” user positions in Bumper are managed on aggregate, slashing transaction fees, and dynamically adjusted using a novel four-pool design.

However, relying entirely on Ethereum mainnet presents some painful bottlenecks.

Metis’ solution seeks to excel where other Ethereum Layer 2 solutions have caused Ethereum projects to hesitate moving to Layer 2. The team at Metis are laser-focused on practical solutions for Ethereum developers while ensuring full functionality, scalability, and security.

Bumper and Metis will be working together to ensure the necessary tooling will be in place for Bumper’s full protocol launch in Q1 next year, paving the way for more DeFi protocols to follow Bumper’s lead.

The partnership will seek to deliver both fast transactions, and cheap gas prices for Bumper’s user base, as well as enable native access to Bumper’s price protection protocol for the entire Metis community.

“Layer 2 solutions fundamentally address the issue of scale and we at Bumper believe Metis have an answer to that problem and we’re very much looking forward to working with them as we bring our DeFi protocol to market.” — Gareth Ward, COO & Co-founder at Bumper.

This announcement couldn’t come at a better time as the Bumper public token sale is announced and scheduled for December 9th. So far, $17.5 million has been raised, and this public sale will have 7.5 million tokens available.
