What’s Maverick Protocol? All You Need to Know about MAV

Introduction As a decentralized exchange deployed on Ethereum and ZkSync Era, Maverick Protocol is designed to provide efficient market-making strategies for LPs through pooling liquidity. It is innovative because it introduces a directional liquidity pooling that allows LPs to choose a liquidity movement mode based on expected asset prices. The smart contract will make liquidity move in this way in each transaction. Thus, the liquidity provided by LPs is kept in the active price range, allowing them to gain fee income. This method can improve capital efficiency and offset impermanent losses to the greatest extent. Currently, four mobility liquidity modes are supported, including Mode Right, Mode Left, Mode Both, and Mode Static.

What is Lyra Finance (LYRA)

Lyra Finance is a project within the Synthetix ecosystem, an options market built on Optimism and Arbitrum. The protocol employs a pool-to-pool trading model, where liquidity providers (LPs) act as counterparties to options and share in the transaction fees. Building upon the Black-Scholes model, the Lyra Automated Market Maker (AMM) model considers the impact of options supply and demand on price, adjusting the implied volatility through various parameters. This acts as a balance for uncovered positions, preventing excessive one-sided positions from causing LP losses. The team has introduced dynamic fees and relevant circuit breaker mechanisms for LP risk management. The official website integrates Synthetix and GMX protocols, enabling LPs to hedge their own trades and achieve near delta neutrality in their risk exposure.
