ZKX is a permissionless protocol for derivatives built on StarkNet, StarkWare’s ZK rollup. We are introducing complex trading strategies as simple perpetual swaps.
Our mission is to democratize access to global yields through our offerings to anyone, anywhere.
What are we doing
When we set out to build ZKX, we wanted to break the 'decentralization illusion' that plagues the current ecosystem. For this purpose, we identified a core set of problems:Firstly, current DeFi projects are heavily reliant on oracles, liquidity providers, and centralized listing mechanisms. Secondly, in the case of newly created tokens, it is difficult to create hedging mechanisms to protect from volatility and impermanent loss. Thirdly, bootstrapping depth-of-market and liquidity for new derivatives is challenging without incentive structures that bring market makers and traders together.
Why we do it
Provide trading services to users on starknet.
