Mission

Our mission is two-fold:
1) Empower any trader to access trading leverage across any asset class with low fees, self custody and transparent execution.
2) Empower anyone to become a market-maker and get access to yields from sophisticated financial products like derivatives.

Vision

Avantis becomes the most user-friendly, decentralized platform for onchain leverage based derivatives (perpetuals, options).

Introduction

Avantis is developing an advance decentralized leveraged trading platform, where users can long or short synthetic crypto, forex and commodities using a financial primitive called "perpetuals"​
Synthetic leverage combined with a USDC stablecoin LP makes Avantis very capital efficient, allowing for a wide selection of trade-able assets and high leverage (up to 100x). We are also unlocking fine-grained risk management for our LPs via time and risk parameters, allowing any LP to be a sophisticated market maker for all kinds of derivatives, starting with perpetuals.
