🐻Trading Pre-launch Futures

Storm Trade kicked off futures trading on cryptocurrencies before they even hit the market. You'll have the chance to predict the success of a new crypto's debut by opening futures positions on it. The traditional model reserved pre-launch securities sales for funds and institutional players. With the emergence of web3, this privilege is extended to all enthusiasts. Pre-launch futures offer a transparent glimpse into the future prices of cryptos before they launch, making the crypto game accessible to all and providing a way to manage risk with a clear view of potential market movements.

Now that we’ve got the basics, let’s dive deeper into in details of trading arrangements.

Nitty-Gritty on Profit and Loss

The Starting Blocks

  • T_trade – The clock starts when the token first hits the scene on the spot market of a centralized exchange (CEX) or through DeDust/StonFi.

  • Cap_constant – The max supply of the token as announced by the project team.

  • Cap_variable – How much of the token is out there circulating on the market a week after T_trade. This number changes and reflects the token’s real-world presence at that time.

  • Cap_expected – The supply we think will be out there, which we use to guess the market cap on the Pre-Launch market. This is what we base our market value predictions on before the token is officially up for grabs.

Note: The project token is the asset in which the futures contract is denominated.

What Could Happen

  • Scenario 1: The token doesn’t make it to market.

  • Scenario 2: The token hits the market with a fixed volume of token supply.

  • Scenario 3: The token makes its debut without a fixed volume of token supply.

Working Out the Token Price

Here’s how we crunch the numbers to get the settlement price, or Price_settle, for a token in USD:

  • Scenario 1: Straightforward – Price_settle matches the futures contract closing price in USD.

  • Scenario 2: A bit of basic maths – Price_settle comes from the average price in USD during the first week of trading, times Cap_constant, then divided by Cap_expected.

  • Scenario 3: Similar to scenario 2, but with a flip – Price_settle is the week’s average price in USD, times Cap_variable, divided by Cap_expected.

Sorting Out the Settlements

The price settlement (Price_settle) is the key to figuring out if you’ve made a packet or taken a bath on your positions. Here’s how it goes down:

  • Long positions above Price_settle and Short below? - Long positions that went in above the settlement price and short positions that dipped below are up for adjustment. This tweak means a slice of your collateral gets trimmed, in line with how far off the mark you were, taking into account the leverage you were playing with. This pooled pot from the adjustments is what we use to dish out the payouts.

  • Long below Price_settle and Short above? - On the flip side, long positions that got in below the settlement price and short positions that were above not only get their initial stake back but also a share of the pot. This extra bit is worked out based on the size and entry price of each position.
