Sam Kim, Partner at Umbrella Network, commented:

DeFi doesn’t have a viable or developed options market. We felt that offering our advanced arbitrage-free options pricing data will be crucial for the DeFi market given the importance of options in traditional finance, not only for speculation but for risk management. As a decentralized oracle service, we work with data that is necessary to calculate true arbitrage-free option prices. So to us, spearheading this movement towards efficient option pricing is the next step to building a thriving derivatives market.

Model helps overcome the lack of data and liquidity within DeFi options

Users face insufficient data and liquidity within the DeFi options space, especially on maturities and strikes. This has resulted in option price gaps and investors risk trading on partial information. What’s more, this lack of data has led to prohibitive DeFi option prices, which has had a thinly traded market as a consequence.

The platform’s arbitrage-free data model will help overcome these difficulties and provide more competitive prices. It will provide a full overview of options markets, options with varying maturities, but the same strike, options with the same maturity. 

Holistic market view

Umbrella Network’s arbitrage-free options data not only provides a full price set, but also a holistic view of the market. It enables traders to make informed decisions.
