Why Buffer Finance?

The Buffer core team consists of individuals who are passionate about decentralization and sustainable business models, leveraging their knowledge and expertise from traditional finance to the dynamic world of DeFi. As experienced traditional finance traders, they scoured the DeFi landscape for alternatives to centralized brokers but found none that met their high standards. Therefore, they made the decision to build their own platform.

The team firmly believes that as more traders become aware of the benefits of decentralized options trading, they will abandon centralized brokers in favor of DeFi alternatives. This will lead to further protocol improvements in terms of trading experience and product offerings from Buffer, allowing them to achieve new milestones.

What are the Key Features of Buffer Finance?

Up/Down Trading Options

Buffer Finance currently offers up/down options trading for cryptocurrencies, forex, and commodities. This presents a streamlined approach to trading where the complexity of the process is condensed into a simple question – whether the price of the underlying asset will increase or decrease in a given timeframe. Traders can choose from 5-minute, 15-minute, 1-hour, and 4-hour timeframes. Furthermore, shorter timeframes like 1-minute trading are currently in development in response to community demand.

To initiate a trade on Buffer Finance, traders can follow these steps:

  1. Select the desired market they want to trade.
  2. Choose the trading pair.
  3. Set the trade duration
  4. Determine the trade size in USDC
  5. Select the trading direction.

Choosing the “Up” direction predicts an increase in the asset’s price. Meanwhile, choosing “Down” predicts a decrease. If the prediction is correct, traders will receive their initial amount plus a payout percentage. In the event that the prediction is incorrect, the invested amount allocated for the trade will be lost.

Traders may opt for options trading on Buffer for several reasons, one being that it provides a predetermined payout even in the case of minimal price fluctuations, and eliminates the risk of liquidation that comes with perpetual trading. The risk and reward are already predetermined on the platform.

After entering the trade amount, traders can view their payout percentage, which is 70% for crypto pairs and commodities, and 80% for forex pairs. With the use of Optopi NFTs, the base payout can be further increased by up to +12%.

Optopi NFT

In addition to serving as adorable profile pictures, credit is due to the designers of Optopi NFTs, who were also responsible for GMX’s blueberry NFT art. However, beyond their appealing aesthetics, Optopi NFTs function as utility NFTs for traders on the platform.

Optopi NFTs are categorized into four tiers: Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond, with Diamond being the highest tier and Silver the lowest. The tier of Optopi NFT a trader holds determines the fee reduction they receive, resulting in a payout boost.

Upon placing a trade, the contract will verify if the trader possesses an Optopi NFT and determine its tier to apply the payout boost to the trade. The best part? You do not need to do anything. Everything is automated. For instance, a forex trader who holds a Diamond NFT and executes a 5-minute trade on Buffer would receive a 92% payout, resulting in an instant profit.

Optopi NFTs offers more than just a payout boost. They also provide direct access to upcoming trading leagues, tournaments, and daily competitions, as well as entry to the Buffer Prime Club, an exclusive community where professional traders, market makers, and technical analysts share valuable market insights, updates, and technical analysis. This information can be invaluable to traders, giving Buffer Prime Club members a competitive advantage. Moreover, the NFTs offer access to trader rebates for a limited period.
