Decentralized Financial Derivatives
We present a set of protocols that allow several types of financial derivatives to be created, issued, and traded for any pair of underlying ERC20 tokens. Our approach uses off-chain order books with on-chain settlement to allow creation of efficient markets. All described protocols are fair and trustless, creating truly open markets that are not governed by a central authority. The protocols are extensible by anyone, requiring no special permissions to be used with other smart contracts.
