What's a crypto-synthetic?
Crypto-synthetics are cryptocurrency backed instruments that track the value of an underlying asset (e.g. a stock). They let you gain exposure to an asset without needing to own it or interacting with the traditional financial system, saving time and money.
How do I harvest the 100% yield?
When you provide stablecoins to the liquidity pool, you receive CAP, a token that tracks your ownership stake in the pool. New CAP are made available weekly in limited quantities. You redeem your CAP to get back your stake in the pool plus yield.
Only 1 million CAP will be made available to the public. Restricting supply means consistently high yields for CAP holders.
How do I get CAP tokens?
There are several ways to get CAP, our native LP token.
You can contribute directly to the liquidity pool. 80% of CAP are distributed this way.
You can margin trade and receive CAP as cash back in proportion to your trading volume. 20% of CAP are distributed this way.
You can also buy CAP directly on a DEX like Uniswap.
What markets can be traded on Cap?
Cap lets you trade any asset using stablecoins. For example, you can trade AAPL using DAI or Gold using USDT.
What stablecoins does Cap support?
At launch, DAI, USDT, and USDC will be supported.
How does Cap's AMM work?
Liquidity is distributed on each side of an asset's price along a liquidity curve, which is a Gaussian function whose properties are automatically adjusted based on volatility and the AMM's inventory. The system is open-source, eliminating conflict of interest. For more details, see our technical whitepaper.
What are the fees?
There are no fees to place trades or provide liquidity. Liquidity providers generate revenue from the effective spread quoted by Cap's AMM. For margin traders, a 5% interest per year applies.
Does Cap run entirely on Ethereum?
Non-leveraged trading of assets that have reliable price oracles ("Asset Tokens") is done entirely on-chain. Margin trading, where speed and low costs are vital, is partially built on conventional architecture that is fast, secure, and distributed.
