“Crypto derivatives is a promising segment in the DeFi space, and this collaboration with Opium will open up new opportunities for 1inch users,” says Sergej Kunz, 1inch Network co-founder

Opium’s API featuring derivatives pools has been added to the 1inch dApp, with all transactions done through Opium’s smart contract.

Crypto derivatives work similarly to options contracts, enabling users to purchase insurance against, for instance, a significant decline in the price of ETH, or, conversely, to bet on an increase in its price.

For instance, a user can buy Turbo ETH with a strike price of $2,200, which means that if ETH’s price goes above $2,200 at a specified date in the future, the user will automatically collect the difference between the price at the time of purchase and $2,200.

Users providing liquidity to derivatives pools will collect yields coming from fees paid by buyers of derivatives. Additionally, based on performance at the time of launch, the annualized return for the Turbo 1INCH derivatives pool on Ethereum is projected to be 8.9%.

Initially, the Turbo 1INCH derivatives pool is available on Ethereum, while on Polygon, users can choose between Turbo 1INCH and Turbo ETH.

HOW OPIUM WORKS

Furthermore, Opium is a protocol that facilitates creating, settling, and trading decentralized derivatives. The protocol is based on a set of open-source Ethereum-based smart contracts. Users can launch decentralized derivatives or invest in derivatives.

The protocol released its token, OPIUM. Prior to the launch, the pre-mine runs. As well as a $3.5 mln private sale, with buyers including Mike Novogratz, Galaxy Digital, QCP Soteria, HashKey, Alameda Research, and others.

Moreover, one of Opium’s first products was credit default swaps for Tether (USDT). It also aims to ensure buyers in the event of Tether’s default.
