Introduction

Welcome to Horizon Protocol, a decentralized derivatives trading & liquidity protocol with the mission of creating accessibility to the real world economy through synthetic assets.

Project Overview

Horizon Protocol is a DeFi platform that facilitates the on-chain trading of synthetic assets that represent the real economy. Horizon Protocol seeks to provide exposure to real-world assets risk/return profiles via smart contracts on the blockchain.
Forked from Synthetix, Horizon Protocol leverages the time-tested derivative liquidity protocol and brings interoperability, scalability and a whole new array of tradable, real-world derivative products to the DeFi ecosystem. Horizon Protocol is seamlessly integrated into BNB Chain's dApp ecosystem, as it is native to this blockchain.

The Horizon Protocol Ecosystem

Horizon Protocol is a decentralized finance project (DeFi) on the BNB Chain with the mission of creating a borderless financial market for synthetic assets.
The Horizon Protocol Ecosystem consists of two main components:
  • Stake, for creating synthetic assets, and
  • Trade (Spot/Futures), for trading synthetic assets.

Getting Started

To get started with Horizon Protocol, you can do two things: “Stake” and “Trade”.
Stake, by staking and providing collateral to the protocol, which will earn you rewards.
Or Trade (Spot/Futures), where you engage in synthetic assets trading, including long and short positions.
