About usRevolutionizing options trading
Arrow Markets brings a new paradigm to options trading on Avalanche, combining centralized efficiency and on-chain transparency. Our RFQ (Request for Quote) enables traders to request quotes from multiple market makers with a single click, providing a simpler, faster, and more secure trading experience.
The Technology Suite
The Arrow protocol implements pricing using an RFQ (Request for Quote) system with trusted market-making partners. Market Makers (MMs) seamlessly provide quotes for option contracts through an API. The creation and settlement of contracts occur on Avalanche's C-chain, and settlement is triggered by Chainlink Automation nodes.LITEPAPER
- Cash-settled: A single numeraire is used to settle all contingent claims. This means underliers can be on-chain or off-chain.
- Self-Custody: Code is Law that replaces centralized settlement. Implemented through a network of DACs.
- Fast and Transparent Pricing: RFQs provide quick and transparent access to pricing information, which is essential for informed decision-making. Better prices: RFQs improve the price discovery process, resulting in better prices for options contracts.
- Prolific: Customize and combine options, call spreads, and put spreads.
