Tallinn, Estonia, 10th May, 2022,
Primex Finance, a DeFi platform connecting passive allocators with traders, is launching its first Alpha version on the upcoming testnet. The Alpha offers the vast majority of the features intended for mainnet, marking the last testing stage before full release.
Primex offers utility to two classes of users: the Lenders and the Traders. Lenders take their assets and supply them into buckets with different assets and trading rules. The rules limit how Traders can use the funds they borrow from these buckets, indicating which pairs they can use and what is their max leverage.
The primary benefit for traders using Primex is that they can access leverage trading and other trading tools on-chain, without using derivatives and in a completely decentralized way. Lenders in their turn have an opportunity to generate significantly higher interest compared to regular lending platforms, as it’s backed by trading profits and fees. Because trades are conducted through Primex smart contracts and not their trader personal wallets, the traders do not need to collateralize their margin debt, only lock their initial trading deposit on a Primex smart-contract. This is similar to margin trading on centralized exchanges, where the platforms know that the trading positions will remain liable to liquidation.
Buckets and Traders in Primex are evaluated by community-nominated notaries, special community members who have the expertise to assess the activity on the platform. High on-chain reputation and history of success makes it more likely that traders will be allowed into riskier buckets. For lenders, higher leverage equals higher yield than on regular DeFi lending platforms, with little added risk.
The Primex Alpha release includes all the core functionality of the platform, with three initial buckets available for Lenders. These use test ERC-20 tokens that can be minted from the Primex faucet. Lenders can provide funds, see their balances and history of actions. Traders will be able to borrow these tokens and conduct complex trading operations with stop loss and limit orders. While this first stage doesn’t involve real money, attracting testers to use the system and find out potential bugs is critical for the platform’s success.
“It’s been a few months after we started the development process and finally, we’re launching the Primex Alpha, the first major step toward mainnet launch,” said Vlad Kostanda, co-founder of Primex Finance. “The Alpha includes all the key features for mainnet, offering both Lenders and Traders a fun playground to check out the platform and test its functionality.”
Primex will also be running its anticipated referral program where all the referred liquidity/trading volume will later be rewarded. The connections between ERC-20 addresses will be stored on-chain in a smart contract.
Primex is the cross-chain prime brokerage liquidity protocol for cross-DEX margin trading with trader scoring mechanisms. In Primex, lenders provide liquidity to pools where traders can use it for leveraged trading in cross-DEX environments. Lenders will have the flexibility to manage their risks and return by providing liquidity to a variety of risk buckets, subsets of liquidity pools that regulate trader risk strategies.
