Opium allows combining any oracle with any financial instrument. Every position is represented by a token that can be traded, sent or stored in cold wallets. Opium Exchange, built on Opium, is an open trading platform for virtually all derivatives including GAS options, synthetic pre-markets for any tokens and the newly supported binary options. Swap Rate is a platform built on Opium where you can hedge against or speculate on the interest rate fluctuations in DeFi lending and borrowing.
