Contracts

Hedge and long positions are made possible by a smart contract on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain, where both parties pay into a Pay-to-Script-Hash (P2SH) address using a custom funding transaction. This funding transaction is made in the Detoken wallet.

There is no order book. Detoken currently uses a private liquidity pool. The start price for a contract is always the current market price for the respective product. Premiums (the cost of funding) are calculated based on the current ratio of hedges and longs. In the future, this liquidity pool may be made public.

The contract fees are fixed to 0.3% of the size of your position. Contract fees are paid during contract creation.

The AnyHedge smart contract was written by General Protocols. You can view the source code on Gitlab.

Currently, you can not cancel an AnyHedge contract. The contract settles either after expiry or price-based liquidation.

You can simulate a contract using AnyHedge's contract simulator, located at the bottom of AnyHedge's "How it Works" page.

Contracts get pricing data using a secure Oracle operated by General Protocols. Price data is sourced from BitPay's price API.
