Convexity Protocol: Building a Generalized Liquid Options Protocol in DeFi
A generalized noncustodial options protocol
By depositing crypto-collateral, options writers are able to mint arbitrary fungible ERC20 option tokens called oTokens.
Selling those minted oTokens allows writers to earn premiums, thereby generating revenue on their collateral.
Buyers can then purchase these oTokens, which trade on exchanges such as 0x or Uniswap, ensuring market liquidity.
The Yield Protocol
Fixed-term secured lending
Debt is fungible and can be traded on @UniswapExchange
Interest rates are implicit and determined by market
Can be used to construct a yield curve
