Synthetic Asset 101


Cryptocurrencies and conventional derivative assets are combined to create synthetic assets, often known as synths. Synths are, in other words, tokenized derivatives.

The blockchain is getting more and more popular for decentralized finance. Due to increased popularity, new asset types that serve the needs of a larger user base appear. Synthetic assets are a part of these brand-new assets.

Synthetic assets: what are they?

In essence, tokenized derivatives are synthetic assets. Derivatives, in the context of conventional finance, are fictitious representations of stocks or bonds that a trader want to buy or sell but does not actually possess. In essence, a derivative can be used to profit from changes in the price of a stock that you do not own. Synthetic assets, also known as tokenized derivatives, further this procedure by adding the derivative’s record to the blockchain and basically turning it into a cryptocurrency token.

In essence, synthetic assets establish a blockchain record of the connection between the buyer and the underlying asset. In the realm of cryptocurrencies, derivatives are becoming more and more common since they enable investors to speculate on the price movements of different tokens without actually holding any of those tokens in their wallets. In this regard, synthetic assets acquire popularity among DeFi aficionados by introducing a tool used by conventional traders to the crypto-eco.

CryptoCaster Quick Check:

Investors may virtually tokenize and trade with anything thanks to synthetic assets. Investors can simply trade anything on the blockchain by using a derivative to connect the value to an already existent asset and then creating a token for this derivative. Because of the increased security and traceability, synthetic assets are increasingly becoming a favoured technique of investing. With synthetic assets, all trades take place on the blockchain rather of the centralized exchanges where trading typically takes place. As all transactions are recorded in the distributed ledger, this ensures traders’ security as well as their anonymity, if they choose to remain anonymous.

As interest in synthetic assets grows, more and more DeFi products are introduced to the market. On several blockchains, new synthetic asset exchanges are starting to appear, giving traders more freedom and lower gas costs. The largest and most well-known exchange for synthetic assets is Synthetix. Synthetix is a market leader in this specialized area of trading tokenized derivatives as one of the first exchanges established globally. Cream Finance and MakerDAO are two well-liked Synthetix alternatives.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
