You can now trade wBTC tokens directly from the security of your private Ethereum wallets, against USDt and without any compromises on speed or liquidity. Simply lock wBTC or USDt in the DeversiFi smart contract and start trading!
What is special about the wBTC listing on DeversiFi?
DeversiFi has mapped the wBTC order book at a 1:1 ratio against some of the deepest centralised and decentralised Bitcoin markets in the industry. This means that traders can now use wBTC to synthetically gain exposure to physical Bitcoin markets with a tight bid/offer spread.
As well as deep liquidity and a tight bid/offer spread, traders can benefit from a fee schedule that starts at only 0.25% (25 BPS) on every trade and can reduced by up to 30%. The DeversiFi fee schedule can be found by navigating to the ‘Fees and Discounts’ section in the menu on https://app.deversifi.com/
When a trader purchases wBTC on DeversiFi they receive the wBTC token in their private wallet. In the background, DeversiFi takes care of the minting and burning of wBTC.
“We have seen a large amount of interest in synthetic bitcoin trading over the past several months and will be supporting more synthetic bitcoin tokens going forward as new models evolve. The 1:1 mapping of DeversiFi orders vs sources of Bitcoin liquidity, combined with relatively low trading fees, is an important step forward for making synthetic bitcoin token trading appeal to professional traders and DeFi alike” Said Ross Middleton, CFO of DeversiFi
