Reef Finance partners with multi-chain options trading platform Oddz Finance to bring a new range of DeFi trading options to Reef users.
Oddz Finance is a multi-chain option trading platform built on Binance Smart Chain. It supports multiple cryptocurrencies over major blockchain networks such as Ethereum, Polkadot, Polygon, Elrond, and BSC. Through their in-built Oracle solution and Machine Learning (ML) powered algorithms, Oddz offers users a seamless on-chain option trading solution.
With a surge of crypto investors entering the DeFi space, there has been an increasing demand for financial instruments to help investors hedge their risks. Options trading offers to fill this gap. Through options trading, traders can simultaneously earn income and hedge their risk in the market.
An option is a contract that provides the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell the underlying asset at a specific ‘strike price’ on or before a certain ‘expiration date’. Options presents traders with a tool to enhance their portfolio value through added income, protection, and even leverage. Moreover, they allow traders to commit less capital than any other market trade requires and make as much or more profit as other types of trades.
The Oddz platform brings the power of options trading to DeFi investors in a simple and easy-to-use manner. The Oddz interface displays all the metrics used to calculate the premium, which helps users make a more informed decision and trade customized options with higher rewards.
Meanwhile, Reef Finance has built the world’s first cross-chain DeFi operating system, which offers investors the most lucrative investment opportunities from the entire DeFi landscape, while simultaneously lowering the barrier of entry into DeFi.
Reef’s smart liquidity aggregator brings the best liquidity from both centralized exchanges and decentralized protocols all in a single place, which saves investors the hassles and cost involved in investing through multiple protocols. To further assist investors, especially the new entrants, Reef’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered Yield Engine provides personalized recommendations to each user based on the individual’s risk appetite and investment plans.
Through the partnership with Oddz Finance, Reef users will now be able to access options trading on multiple blockchains directly through the Reef platform. Reef has already provided a range of innovative investment products to users, such as the Reef Baskets and the Reef Bonds. With this integration, Reef will provide traders an entirely new class of financial derivative tools, enabling them to access on-chain options for speculation or hedging their existing positions.
Speaking about this partnership, Denko Mancheski, CEO of Reef Finance, said, “At Reef we are constantly trying to provide more value to our users by bringing more and more DeFi instruments. We have presented various decentralized investment programs in the past, which have been quite a hit among DeFi investors. We’re partnering with Oddz Finance to provide powerful tools that will allow our users to hedge their risks. We are hopeful that this partnership will not only attract more investors to the Reef platform but also help Oddz onboard more users and grow together with us.”
