Decentralized Finance is a permissionless alternative to all our traditional finance services. Here, the whole financial system is decentralized without any intermediary or middleman. With the popularity of DeFi, new forms of assets are rising, for example, synthetic assets which serve the needs of a wider range of users.

What is a Synthetic asset?

“Synthetic asset” refers to a combination of crypto and traditional derivative assets that are tokenized derivatives. Stocks or bonds that a trader does not own but wants to buy or sell are called derivatives.

For instance, rather than buying a stock, an investment company may buy a call option and sell a put option on the same stock. The use of synthetic assets here permits a certain company to develop the use of multiple financial models rather than a single investment crypto asset.

Synthetic assets create a cryptocurrency token for a derivative by adding a record of it on the blockchain thus creating a relationship between the underlying asset and the purchaser. Investors can bank on the variation of tokens without having to own them in their wallets. This feature of derivatives is the key reason for its increasing popularity in the crypto world. In this same way, synthetic assets also gain popularity among DeFi enthusiasts because they provide all necessary tools to traditional traders in the crypto world.

Using these assets, a trader can tokenize and trade anything. They can trade anything on the blockchain after adding a derivative to the existing asset and tokenizing it.

Increased security and traceability are the main reasons for choosing synthetic assets as a preferred method of investing. All trade takes place on blockchain and all transactions are recorded on the distributed ledger thus providing anonymity and security to traders.

New synthetic asset-based exchanges are rising on various blockchains that allow users to trade with maximum flexibility and lower gas fees. The biggest and most famous synthetic asset exchange is Synthetix. It is created specifically for trading tokenized derivatives and Synthetix is a leader of the niche market. Cream Finance and MakerDAO are two popular derivative protocols like Synthetix.

What is Synthetix?

Synthetic is the pillar for derivative trading in DeFi that allows users to get on-chain exposure to a wide range of assets.

Synthetix – A synthetic asset platform that provides on-chain exposure to real-world currencies, stocks, and commodities. They are backed by Synthetix Network Tokens (SNX), locked into a smart contract as collateral.

Synths monitor the prices of different assets to allow crypto-native users to trade P2C on Synthetix Exchange without liquidity limitations. This project was launched as a decentralized stablecoin protocol -Havven (HAV).

SNX token and its functions:

SNX is required to create synthetic assets, synths. Users can purchase these tokens from crypto exchanges and place them in a suitable wallet. New synths are minted, once these tokens are staked.

Synth tokens:

Synth tokens are the assets that replicate the prices of real assets. Stakers create a debt when new synths are minted and they should pay the same amount to synths before withdrawing their locked SNX tokens. These tokens do not exactly match the represented assets.

Synths value is volatile and changes in investments like stocks where the price changes constantly. Users have to pay different synths amount to get their masked SNX tokens compared to the initially received amount.

One big advantage of the synth is that users can trade different synth types as long as they have the same market value.  A bitcoin synth can be exchanged for a Tesla share synth if they have the same value.

Mintr:

Mintr is the primary dApp within the Synthetix Network providing a UI for minting Synths and participating in the ecosystem at large. The users can connect to Mintr via web3 wallets like MetaMask, Ledger, Trezor, and Coinbase Wallet. Once connected, users can carry out any of the aforementioned actions if they have a sufficient amount of SNX in their wallets.

Collateral:

To protect the platform from extreme market price fluctuations, a higher collateralization rate is charged. The rate of collateralization is about 750% in synthetic systems.

How does  SNX stacking work?

  • First, a user needs to buy SNX on any exchange and connect to a Web3-Wallet (e.g., MetaMask).
  • Go to Mintr, Synthetix’s proprietary portal interface to raise and manage synths.
  • Connect your wallet to Mintr.
  • Click on ‘Mint’ and select the desired type of Synth to mint.
  • Remember the 750% collateralization rate.
  • Enter the number of synths you would like to mint.
  • Click on ‘mint now.’
  • Confirm the transaction in the Web3 wallet.
  • After this process, the SNX tokens will be clocked automatically.
  • Users can now enjoy rewards obtained from trading fees. Users can also participate in the inflationary behavior of the SNX tokens.

Why synthetics and DeFi?

There are a few reasons why synthetics are useful to multiple participants in the decentralized finance (eDeFi) ecosystem.

  • Synthetics provide a mechanism for real-world assets to be traded on a blockchain with trust.
  • One of the main issues is a lack of liquidity in the current Defi.  Synthetics could help the markets scale their operations by hedging positions and protecting profits.
  • Another issue is the smart contract platforms with technical limitations. With synthetic exchange, the traders don’t need direct ownership of an asset.
  • DEXes like  Synthetix avoid the need for withdrawal fees (but gas fees will be charged) because trading is done directly from wallet to wallet.
