About Arrow Markets
*This page is under construction*
In the traditional options market, options must be sold by a writer who receives the premium from the buyer and is responsible for paying the buyer if the option is exercised in the money. As an options protocol on Avalanche, Arrow Markets will give users the ability to buy options without the need to be matched by a middle-man. Arrow will facilitate the creation and settlement of options on popular underlying assets such as AVAX, ETH, and BTC. For a more detailed introduction to Arrow Markets, you can refer to our lite paper or introductory blog post. For more details on the trading competition click here.
Arrow Markets’ namesake was inspired by Nobel laureate economist Kenneth Arrow. He proved that options contracts form a basis for the prices of financial assets, making it possible to construct a wide variety of derivatives and structured products from simple options.
