How does Ovex generate yield with the deposited funds?

OVEX leverages secure channels to safeguard clients' funds whilst generating consistent interest repayments on a daily basis. This is achieved through the following channels:

  • Primarily by offering post-trade settlement facilities to large OTC clients
  • Secondly by staking in blue-chip De-Fi protocols
  • And lastly through the perpetual-futures-spot market arbitrage

 

PERPETUAL-FUTURES – SPOT MARKET ARBITRAGE EXAMPLE:

On day 1, we have the following prices:

BTC perpetual price: $51000

BTC spot price: $50000

So how do we capitalize on the price discrepancy? Simple! The arbitrage starts by opening a short position on the perpetual market and buying the exact same amount of BTC on the spot market.

 

Let’s use an order size example of 1 BTC here:

On day 2, the prices converge:

BTC perpetual price: $52000

BTC spot price: $52000

 

In that situation, we close the arbitrage trade and calculate the results of the operation:

Perpetual result: - $1000 (because of the short)

Spot result: + $2000

Final profit: + $1000

 

It’s an arbitrage opportunity like any other.
