Vega is a decentralized network protocol for creating and trading magined financial products.
The network, secured with proof-of-stake, developed on top of Tendermint that allows users to trade derivatives on a decentralized network with similar functionality to that of centralized exchanges. It will enable fully automated end-to-end margin trading and sophisticated financial product execution.
VEGA’s purpose is to create tools that ensure the freedom to trade and make that freedom available to everyone, regardless of who they are or where they are from.
It is taking aim at the fundamental flaws in the present centralized financial system, by ensuring all participants benefit equally from competitive fees, and rewards are proportionate to the value added.
This protocol must be open, and it will eventually be free and open source software governed by the community, so that it can develop and evolve with the needs of the users
In addition to improving liquidity issues with other DeFi products, Vega promises it will solve high fees, high latency, unwieldy interfaces, and front-running—the practice of trading on non-public information in order to change the future price of an asset.
The total supply of VEGA tokens is 64,999,723 tokens, of which 7.5% will be available for the token sale, equally for 3 options. Depending on your plan of investing, you can either choose 1,2 or all 3 options. Below table will give more information for each option.
