Default Trading Mode

The market will run in Continuous Trading with the following parameters:
1.tick size = 1 - set to this level because this is the minimum increment for the tDAI settlement asset.
2.quote Name: “tDAI” - the market will be quoted in tDAI

Risk Model and Parameters

The risk model for this market will be Lognormal, with the following risk parameters:
risk free rate = 0
mu = 0
risk aversion lambda = 0.001
tau = 1 hour (risk evaluation intervals)
volatility = 0.x (xx%)

We are yet to define the volatility and maximum leverage available on this market, will really need the input of our community

Data Source for Settlement ???

What data source will give quality data ?
Also, community involvement is needed here to help us get quality data source for this market
Price Monitoring

We decide to adopt the default price monitoring parameters. They are:
horizon = 43200 seconds (12hours)
probability = 0.9999999
auction_extension = 300 seconds (5 minutes)

If a very unexpected move occurs over a 12 hour look-back window occurs, then the market will be placed into an auction.

Governance Parameters

closingDatetime: “2022-08-10T00:00:00Z",
enactmentDatetime: “2022-08-10T00:03:00Z",


Price monitoring Parameters:
Are you considering more than 1 trigger?

As for this one it triggers if the price moves around 15% up or 15% down within 12 hours without triggering auction correct?

Are there any thoughts on adding another trigger as well that prevents price spikes of e.g. 7% within 10 minutes or similar?

Wonder what people would think.

Suggesting open source (Oracle).

But explain volatility for me…?

Volatility is is the degree of variation of a trading price series over time.
More like the degree of price changes over a period of time.


I agree with this. Getting more triggers could help in protecting the market from unexpected movements. 7% or 8% within 10 to 15 minutes will be great addition

more triggers will be considered

Thanks. I get it now

Maybe we can have something like this

trigger 1: 12h, 0.99, 5min,
trigger 2: 12h, 0.95, 10min.

Yes, we will consider multiple triggers.

This is a good suggestion

From my understanding you are suggesting we improve by adding a second trigger

Trigger 1:
horizon = 43200 seconds (12hours)
probability = 0.9999999
auction_extension = 300 seconds (5 minutes)

Trigger 2:
horizon = 43200 seconds (12hours)
probability = 0.93
auction_extension = 600 seconds (10 minutes)

For Optimism (OP) market, short % (5%) move and time (say 300 seconds) should be cool for the first price trigger

Followed this from twitter :laughing:

This will be a good trigger for me:

Horizon= 12hours
Probability= 20%
Auction= 20 minutes

I like OP

Not too sure if I will love to provide liquidity or trade OP on futures because of price volatility.

But this is a good proposal

What else am I to do or just wait to vote?
