Futureswap (FST) is a non-custodial perpetual and decentralized protocol that aims to ensure users’ gain of leveraged exposure on assets. The platform built on Ethereum believes in democracy, and thus it is designed to be governed by the users. The platform aims to offer low gas fees, execute trades efficiently from any device, gain leveraged exposure on uncountable assets, and stay completely secure with optimistic rollups. The Futureswap platform aims to be a lending protocol.
The platform relies on on-chain oracles to ensure liquid ability. Thus, the liquidations are based on oracle index price and not on exchange's mark price that is hard to manipulate. The Futureswap V4 platform is created while putting safety as a significant concern. The platform believes an actual DeFi building block does not have insolvency issues. The traditional insurance model needs to be re-examined, centralizing power and potential.
The platform shares an insurance fund that aims to impose significant limitations and attack scenarios on itself. However, the Futureswap protocol takes a different approach, employing auto-deleveraging (ADL) for the riskiest trades. Lower leverage deals have a far lower probability of acquiring ADL than more significant risk trades. As a result, no insurance currency is required, and the exchange will stay viable in all scenarios. Futureswap aims to keep innovating on the insurance fund concept in the future.
FST is the native governance token of the platform. The FST token enables token holders to shape the ecosystem's future as a governance token. The platform allows community members to express their views openly and create proposals that bring the best ideas for its development. The platform further incentivizes trading and liquidity with the FST token. The platform allows liquidity providers to earn yield and passive income through FST incentives and trading fees. Additionally, the liquidity is used by the Futureswap protocol and other AMMs to create leveraged exposure. The platform also distributes trade fee incentives every day based on trade fees compared to the rest of the trade fee volume.
The platform's only aim is to fully decentralize a flexible and efficient future exchange that enables lower fees, zero slippage, notable returns for liquidity providers, and limitless token pairs. The platform has an efficient team of engineers working in trading, finance, governance, and blockchain and is backed by top-notch founders and investors.
