Hegic is an Ethereum-based on-chain options trading technology driven by hedging contracts and liquidity pools. A hedge contract is an on-chain, options-like contract that gives the holder or buyer the right to buy or sell an asset at a specific price (strike) and obligates the writer or seller to buy or sell an asset at a specific time. These hedge contracts are non-custodial, untrustworthy, and unaffected by censorship. The hedge contracts are secured by the liquidity invested in them as well as the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which runs the code independently. The HEGIC token is an ERC-20 utility token that distributes 100% of settlement fees to all token holders. Holders can then engage in governance by deciding on interest rates, settlement fee levels, strike price multipliers, and the sorts of assets that are supported.
