What Exactly is Equilibrium?

Over the last two years, Decentralized Finance (DeFi) has shown remarkable progress and has become the most rapidly developing sector of the cryptocurrency market. In December 2021, the total value locked in DeFi (TVL) reached an impressive $253 billion, indicating a significant peak in its growth trajectory. However, flaws are still constantly gripping the advancement of DeFis.

Therefore, Equilibrium aims to be the most comprehensive DeFi hub that provides high leverage and utmost resilience to users. Equilibrium provides on-chain price discovery and system-wide insurance. It allows participants to transfer volatility risk and price event risk from borrowers to bailsmen. This approach ensures that the money market integrated with DEX runs smoothly on Equilibrium’s parachain.

Features of Equilibrium

Equilibrium’s asset module, risk management, and pricing models offer out-of-the-box DEX functionality. This DEX is a fully on-chain order-book-based exchange built using a substrate framework. Its unique design offers several advantages compared to existing DEXs, including:

Cross-Chain Compatibility

Equilibrium has the potential to surpass current DEX limitations by incorporating tokens from the Polkadot ecosystem and other blockchains into the exchange. As a result, the trading pairs on Equilibrium DEX are not restricted to ERC20 tokens like other DEXs but can include any blockchain connected to the Polkadot ecosystem.

Highly Efficient

Trading on blockchain platforms is often hindered by high transaction costs, making scalping or small lot trading ineffective. However, Equilibrium’s scalability, supported by the substrate and Polkadot technology, overcomes this issue. With no mining, a consensus is reached faster on Polkadot compared to Ethereum. Additionally, traders can benefit from designated off-chain workers and unsigned transactions, which enable them to place numerous orders without incurring transaction fees. However, this approach also carries the risk of denial-of-service attacks, so traders must choose the exact approach carefully.

Competitive Leverage

Equilibrium’s innovative approach to modeling collateralized loans enables traders to enjoy competitively low levels of collateralization, resulting in high leverage on its DEX. With Equilibrium’s money market, users can access up to 20x leverage when trading on the DEX.

In addition, Equilibrium plans to consider pricing with jump risk and build on the hyper-exponential jump-diffusion (HEM) model. The company may also consider the double exponential jump-diffusion model (DEM) and/or the jump-to-default extended constant elasticity variance model (JDCEV). The pricing models will take into account infinite-horizon loans, similar to the initial model.

What are the Benefits of Using Equilibrium?

Equilibrium offers a range of benefits that make it a highly attractive option for traders looking for a more efficient, scalable, and secure DEX. Its cross-chain compatibility, competitive leverage, lower transaction costs, and enhanced security features make it a dynamic player in the rapidly-evolving cryptocurrency market.
