##About VariabL:

VariabL started as a research project in ConsenSys in late 2015, The founding team has explored derivatives and hedging solutions like stable tokens before the first release of Ethereum (Frontier) and is now a remote-friendly startup located in Paris.

VariabL offers the first scalable and transparent non-custodial exchange for derivatives based on smart contracts and implementing latest blockchain technologies such as state channels for scalability. The aim is to offer new generation derivatives that will stabilize the decentralized applications ecosystem relying on volatile commodities like ether or tokens. VariabL will allow for decentralized players and traders to control their exposure on price volatility of crypto assets they use by entering our trustless derivatives while keeping in control of their funds.

We all share a passion for decentralization and sustainable value creation. We are a team of 10 researchers, engineers and lawyers that value scientific rigor and fast market experiments to prove and scale our concrete use case.

Our product team has leveraged our initial research and has been running an alpha version of VariabL for more than 10 months gathering 600 traders giving us UI/UX feedback.
In the meantime, the financial department of our research team designed a scalable and robust Financial Engine for VariabL peer-to-peer derivatives while our blockchain researchers implemented a scalable infrastructure based on state channels enabling low cost transactions with high throughput.
