In addition to supporting perps and options trading on multiple markets, Derivio offers access to real yield for liquidity providers.
Institutions and builders can also tap into the key features of decentralisation and modularity for their hybrid order book protocols or derivatives vaults.
As part of the launch and to incentivise further adoption, Derivio plans to introduce several mainnet events, including trading competitions and retroactive incentives.
