????DeFi By Design EP #6: The Future of Derivatives Trading

Derivatives trading might be one of the best opportunities in DeFi available today. At least Andrey, a veteran in the CeFi and crypto space, thinks so.

Andrey Belkyov had been working in a traditional derivatives trading shop until he had a lightbulb moment.

In front of his face appeared the Ethereum whitepaper in 2016, by the luck of a great friend, he decided it was going to be the future. Since then, he has gone all in on DeFi and building out what will be the future of the financial world.

Rob and I had a lot of questions about regulation, derivatives markets, the bridge between CeFi & DeFi and how Opium is pioneering the decentralized futures markets.

Opium also brought the world’s first credit default swap on Aave!
