So, let’s talk about UMA. What’s it all about?
Say hello to UMA
Meet UMA. Founded in 2018 by Hart Lambur and Allison Lu, it aims to allow users to trade any assets using ERC-20 tokens without exposure to the asset itself. It’s a great way to get into DeFi, as it allows anyone access to certain assets that would have been otherwise unavailable to them.
What does it do?
UMA allows users to create their own synthetic tokens and derivatives that can track the price of any asset. It uses two main factors in its protocol – Priceless Financial Contracts and UMA’s Oracle. These work on UMA’s protocol to build an open-source infrastructure for creating derivatives on the Ethereum blockchain. They also bring security and enhanced collateralisation for counterparties.
