Synthetix is a derivatives liquidity protocol that runs on the Ethereum network. SNX allows for the issuance and trading of synthetic assets. Each of the synthetic assets, or ‘synths’, are ERC20 tokens that track the price of an external asset. An example of this is the sUSD token which tracks the price of the US dollar. A wide range of Synths exist within Synthetix, including fiat currencies, commodities, cryptocurrencies, and inverse indexes. Theoretically, the system can support and sustain any asset with a clear price and supports on-chain exposure to limitless range of real-world assets. The protocol will allow a range of trading features including binary options, futures, and more.
Synthetix is sustained by a smart contract infrastructure and a combinaton of incentives that manages Synth prices. It is reinforced by the value of the Synthetix Network Token (SNX). SNX functions as collateral; staking a proportionate value of SNX is necessary to mint Synths. Stakers are compensated for strengthening the system with a pro-rata share of the fees produced by activity in the system. The value of SNX is therefore immediately linked with the usage of the network it collateralizes.
This system enables Synthetix to sustain an instant, near-frictionless conversion between different flavours of Synths minus the liquidity and slippage problems that are experienced by other decentralized exchanges. The resulting network of tokens supports a broad range of use cases which include trading, loans, payments, remittance and eCommerce.
Synthetix Network was known as Havven previously. It is a software and blockchain development company concentrated on producing on-chain synthetic assets pegged to fiat currencies, metals, and indices. Synthetix is also expanding Mintr, the dapp SNX holders can use to create synthetic assets, known as ‘Synths’. They are also overseeing the development of Swappr, a decentralized exchange (DEX) for buying Synthetix's stablecoins with ether.
