Antimatter Finance

Firstly, we apologize for the lack of communication with the community on the perpetual option sides. As the believer of non-oracle based decentralized derivatives, we work hard on finding and refining our models. (Read here for our non-oracle argument) The difficulty was beyond our estimation The roadmap was delayed. We faced criticism and doubt on the validity of Antimatter's perpetual options. Facing difficulties, we actively seek help from math professionals including some DeFi founders for help. With the help of two PhDs from Oxford university, we made some good breakthroughs and we would love to give the community update.

Many discussions in the NFT space have been revolving around fine arts and music, making us forget about bigger, even more exciting use cases for this technology: financial NFTs. While this idea has been floating around, so far it’s been too complicated to implement. As we are exploring a variety of derivatives and working on the perpetual polarized options, we are excited to launch another line of product for antimatter: non-fungible finance.

A lot of financial NFT projects fail because they think too complicated. In the decentralized finance world, simplicity is always the winner. From Antimatter perspective, NFTs are just…

In this blog, we discuss an issue with the current on-chain derivatives space. The issue with on-chain derivative is not how you design the contract, it is how you avoid using oracles. The price feed is always faster for CEX than DeFi, and it is not attractive anymore. Below we list two major reasons why having an oracle is bad for on-chain derivatives.

Flash loans

Flash loan allows investors to borrow and return a significant amount of money without interest rate within one transaction block. Flash loan attacks can have a devastating effect on the exchange(platform). Here is an example: one can…


We aim to decide whether a particular cryptocurrency is bullish or bearish by using a financial derivative: perpetual options. We achieve this by tokenizing perpetual options so that investors can forge and trade these tokens. There are two token types: call token and put token, which correspond to call and put perpetual options.

Understanding how it works

To understand how these two token types work, we have a price interval that contains the current price of a certain cryptocurrency and we anticipate that the price of this currency will change within this interval. If we work with ETH and in case that the price…

Chapter 1: Macro Perspective (Vision)

1. What is an option?

In short, option is a call that is executed at a specific price, based on the price of the underlying asset at a certain date in the future (call) or put (put). Options are a type of financial derivatives because they obtain value from the underlying asset (original product).

Option traders can use Call/Put to speculate or hedge positions, but they do not assume corresponding obligations.
