Vest: v. confer or bestow power, authority, and property
Vest Exchange is a decentralized perpetual futures exchange that enables users to propose and trade almost any asset.
Novel decentralized markets enable the potential for a fully democratized financial system. We are especially motivated by the opportunities to improve capital efficiency such that liquidity moves freely, allowing markets to be more representative of human nature, psychology, logic, and current events. That is, understanding human nature can be akin to understanding the reasoning behind trades.
Being able to speculate and trade on any asset, in a permission-less manner, is a core necessity to truly capture the belief systems of different groups of people. Vest Exchange enables this through a cutting-edge risk-engine shaped by academic literature and modern market making techniques.
