PowerTrade's Vision for The Future of Crypto
As Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are attracting mainstream attention in both the traditional financial markets and the public eye, the industry is seeing a wave of unprecedented hyper growth, from headline grabbing IPOs to public companies adding Bitcoin to their balance sheet.
However the industry is still young and at the beginning of the growth phase of the adoption cycle, which makes it an exciting time to be a part of this industry!
Looking at industry trends and maturity of the offerings, we see a few areas that are nascent and expected to see large growth and maturity within the industry in coming years: options and derivatives, user experience, DeFi eats CeFi.
Options and Derivatives
In the short term, we expect to see rapid growth and maturation of options and derivatives markets. When we look at where options markets are today vs. the volume expected in a mature market, relative futures, you can see there is a large amount of growth expected, especially as the crypto market itself expands.
In the mid-short term, user experience in the crypto market is severely lagging the traditional finance industry. While the core technology provides a better experience with instant settlement and self-custody resolving the much hated banking technologies, the majority of crypto user interfaces are clunky and hard to use.
PowerTrade is leading the industry on user experience by implementing the design industry best practices and innovating on the new types of offerings that are possible with crypto.
DeFi eats CeFi
In the long term, we expected Decentralized Finance (DeFi) to replace Centralized Finance (CeFi) counter-parts. But building decentralized tech is notoriously slow and so we expect it to happen slowly and in phases.
We already are seeing the tokenization of lending and leverage positions, which made it possible for PowerTrade to decentralize the insurance fund function of the exchange with the Fuel DAO.
PowerTrade is following a progressive decentralization strategy where we decentralize components of the exchange as the tech matures enough to not compromise the user experience.
