DeFi insurance and risk management built using protective put options.

Opyn is a product and open protocol on Ethereum that allows users protect themselves from the unique risks they face in DeFi. DeFi enthusiasts and projects alike rely on Opyn’s smart contracts and interface to protect themselves and their users from technical risks, like hacks, and financial risks, like crashes in the value of Ether.

Opyn is pioneering on-chain hedging and derivatives markets, protecting collateralized assets in smart contracts, and securing DeFi platforms like money markets to neo-banks. We believe that building an inclusive, fair, and open financial system is a problem that will be solved with a deep understanding of cryptocurrency, finance, security-focused engineering, and a deep empathy for the risks users face.

From designing and shipping novel financial primitives to bootstrapping flourishing two-sided insurance derivative marketplaces, we dive headfirst into the challenges necessary to build an open financial system.
