Ethereum-based token of new DeFi trading platform surges 1,000% in two weeks

Bitcoin and Ethereum may be crashing but this hasn’t stopped DeFi projects from gaining traction.

While decentralized spot exchanges such as Uniswap and SushiSwap have gained much traction over their centralized competitors, there remain few platforms through which crypto users can obtain leverage on these volatile markets in a decentralized manner.

SynLev launched just weeks ago, giving users the opportunity to short and long Ethereum and soon other assets with leverage in a decentralized manner. It accomplishes this by using a pool of Ethereum to create synthetic leverage of around 2-4 times. This is similar to models used by exchanges such as FTX, which allow users to obtain leverage without having margin or liquidation levels.

SynLev is a unique concept on Ethereum: synthetic leverage without KYC. In layman’s terms, you can bet with BEAR or BULL tokens on where you expect the market to go. All of this is done on-chain with the help of Chainlink’s oracles. SynLev therefore has the capacity to support synthetic leverage for any of the assets listed on Chainlink’s price feed.

These tokens have a natural “decay,” which means that they should not be held for longer periods of time.

The project has garnered much traction within the space, with prominent investors and analysts in the space making mention of it.

Santiago R. Santos, a partner at leading DeFi fund Parafi Capital and a former JPMorgan banker, seemingly hinting at the platform wrote:
